One of the most commonly asked questions for those embarking on laser hair removal is how many treatments are required.
If you are contemplating laser hair removal for the first time, you probably already know that a course of treatment is recommended for best results. The reason is to ensure that the maximum amount of hair is treated at the right point in the hair growth cycle.
How Many Sessions?
To a certain extent, treatment will depend on the patient’s hair and skin type. However, that is not the only factor.
The actual machine used to treat hair reduction is extremely important in terms of the result that can be expected. A good, medical grade laser machine can work much more efficiently than cheaper, less powerful systems such as those found in beauty clinics. These can make the hair thinner and finer without removing it permanently which in the long run makes it more difficult to treat.
Mulberry House Clinic use an Nd Yag laser, chosen because it is safe and effective for all skin types and in their view superior to IPL.
Clinic founder and GP, Dr John Tanqueray explains:
We commonly see people who are having or have had IPL for hair removal and still going after 12 or 16 treatments. We expect good results after 6 although some patients have excellent results after 4!
In addition, the practitioner using the machine is very influential. There are no minimum requirements for training or qualification in order to practice laser hair removal. Those looking for a good result in a safe environment should never be afraid to ask about the practitioner’s credentials.
At Mulberry House Clinic, laser hair removal is carried out by Liz Tanqueray, a State Registered Nurse (SRN) with over 30 years experience. She has been fully trained in laser hair removal and understands how to adjust the treatment settings and timing for each individual patient to get optimum hair reduction.
