Half an hour – forty-five minutes every 4 to 6 weeks is all that’s required, and the appointments can be scheduled during a lunch hour because there are few side effects involved in the procedures. Most people have a slight burning sensation that can be soothed with some aloe gel, and there can be redness, followed by a bit of itching after about 3 days. The side effects are minimal in most cases, it’s rare that infection should set in or that scarring should occur. However, the outcome will depend partly on your own medical history and skin type, as well as what equipment is chosen Discuss the specific risks that you may face with your certified laser hair reduction specialist.
