Can I tan in between laser hair removal sessions?
Cutera Nd Yag and ProWave can be used on tanned and darker skin types however the intensity of the treatment may have to be reduced and this can increase the number of required treatments. Active tanning and sun exposure is not recommended during any laser treatment.
How many treatments?
Hair reduction can take 8 – 10 treatments but it will depend on the area to be treated, the skin colour and hair type. Improvements are progressive - with each treatment the hair follicle weakens and hair regrowth reduces.
How long between treatments?
Most salons/spas recommend frequent visits, usually 4 weeks apart. At CRM we educate our clients about the appropriate timeline for hair to sufficiently regrow to the TELEGAN phase. At this phase there is an abundant amount of pigment and the hair is most likely to respond to treatment. The timeline between sessions can be anywhere from 4 weeks to 4 months - the interval increases with each treatment because the hair regrowth is slowed.
Does laser hair removal work on blonde or grey hair?
