One of the first things that Edmonton dermatologist. Once patients to know. Is that if they want the best results possible. Is that they have to stop waxing or plucking the hair immediately. The reason why this is a necessity.
Is because the laser hair removal in Edmonton treatments work. By targeting the hair follicles. And then exploding them on contact. Waxing and plucking pulls the hair out by the root. So that the hair follicles are not present.
And if the hair follicles are missing. During the laser hair removal in Edmonton treatment. Then simply put. The session will not be as effective. As it should be, in order to deliver great and permanent results.
While some dermatologists say. People can stop waxing or plucking for two weeks. Prior to their first treatment. The best scenario. Would be for patients to immediately stop.
Even if their treatment is three or four weeks away. Because there hair follicles might be slow to grow. And as many hair follicles that can be present. Will increase the effectiveness of the treatment.

The next question that many people want to know. Is how many treatments they will need. Dermatologists will discuss this with each patient on an individual basis.
Simply because a number of variables will impact. Exactly how many treatments they are going to need. For example, some people can have permanent results. And as few as two or three sessions.
While others are going to need up to eight. This is going to be dependent on not only the area of the body. That is going to be treated. But also, the colour and thickness of the hair factor in as well.
For example, the darker and thicker the hair is. The more success the laser will have. At finding unwanted hair and destroying it. Because the laser is designed to look for pigmentation.
And the thicker the hair, the bigger the hair follicle. Then the easier the laser will be at finding that hair follicle to destroy it. Ultimately, the darker the hair colour is. The easier the laser will find it as well.
While lighter hair can still get laser treatment. It might mean that the dermatologist. Needs to turn the intensity of the laser. Or that a person may need more sessions. To get the permanent results they desire.
But this can all be discussed at the time of the initial consultation. Which is always free for new and existing customers. When they call in for this important treatment.
