How many treatments do I need?

The number of laser hair removal treatments varies from person to person and depends heavily on the spot to be treated. Between 5 and 8 sessions may be required for maximum results. The number of treatments is strongly determined by, among other things, your hair and skin color, hair thickness and the number of hairs per skin surface area. This is different for every person and our specialist will advise you to achieve the optimal result for you. During a free intake interview you will already get an indication about the number of treatments you need for the desired result. Another factor that plays a major role in determining the number of treatments needed to achieve maximum results is the growth cycle of the hair. To better understand why more laser treatments are needed, we would like to give you more explanation about this hair growth cycle.

The hair growth cycle

The light from the laser device we use at Solution Clinic is focused on melanin, a substance (pigment) that gives the hair its natural color. Melanin is produced in that active growth phase of the hair. The hair follicles can be destroyed with laser light if the hair is in the active growth phase. There are three different stages of hair growth:

  • Growth phase / Anagene phase: This is the active phase of the hair. During this phase, the cells of the hair papil in the hair roots cause hair growth.
  • Transition phase / Katagenic phase: At this stage, melanin production stops. The growth of the hair is declining and in the end it will fall out by itself. There will be a period of calm for the hair follicles.
  • End phase / Telogene phase: This is a period of complete rest for the hair follicle. Melanin is no longer active in the hair. There is no more metabolism and the hair can no longer grow.

At the end of this phase, the growth cycle starts again. The hair follicle becomes active and produces hair again.

The hair roots can only be destroyed in the “active” growth phase of the hair. Only 15 of the hairs are during the first treatment in the active growth phase. More treatments are therefore needed to find and destroy as many hairs as possible in the active phase.

Time between treatments

Please note that between each treatment session a break period is required to give the skin rest.

For example:

  • Face: 6-8 weeks,
  • Body 8-10 weeks
  • Back and Shoulders 10-12 weeks (for men)

I started my treatment for hair removal last summer, and it has been a very good experience. Since the beginning Kim has answered all my questions and tried to explain the procedures in detail, always worried that I feel comfortable. So far almost all my hair has fallen and stopped growing.

Been coming here for a few months for laser hair removal. It has been great so far and the results are really showing. I was initially scared to start due to the pain, but it has been handled amazingly, and I’m glad I pushed through

I have a very good experience in this clinic. Anas informed me well and honestly about the process of removing my scar. He is really reassuring and explains clearly how he will treat and what he is doing. He gives good advice and really focuses on a good result. After several sessions I am satisfied with the result. I can definitely recommend this place!

I have been getting laser treatment from Esmee for more than a year now and I am extremely pleased with her services as well as the professional treatment from Solution Clinic. A lovely atmosphere and great staff. Esmee has been exceptionally professional, very thorough and I totally love her honesty while telling me about the treatments. It made me trust the clinic even more. I would love to recommend her and Solution clinic to my friends! Cheers!
