Laser hair removal is a treatment that helps reduce or remove unwanted hair. This treatment works best on coarse, dark hair. During laser hair removal, the laser emits a concentrated beam of light that gets absorbed by the pigment that is found within the hair. The light energy then gets converted to heat energy, which helps to damage the hair follicle that produces the hair. Once that follicle is damaged, it delays or stops the follicle from being able to produce new hair growth. On average, it is expected to have full hair removal after 6-8 treatments. Results vary per person, especially for those with hormonal imbalances. For women with PCOS, 10-12 sessions may be required on the body, and 12+ sessions required for the face. Those with PCOS may also need to be seen every 12-15 weeks for maintenance.
