To achieve permanent results requires a series of treatments so that the hair follicles can be permanently destroyed at each cycle of growth and stop the blood flow to those follicles. Your hair grows in cycles, which vary according to body area. A technician will usually see all the cycles of growth appear over a 12 – 18 month period, meaning you can be completely hair free in less than 1-½ year. However this requires consistent treatments and your committing to them. The duration of your overall treatment plan will vary based on the area of the body and your previous methods of hair removal.
