The procedure has been approved by the USA’s Food And Drug Administration (FDA) for the achievement of permanent hair reduction and long lasting removal. After the initial course of treatments, patients will usually see substantial hair reduction in the treated area.
An initial course of 6, with treatments between 4 to 8 weeks apart, treatments is usually recommended. Following this, patients should only need occasional sessions (perhaps one to two times a year) to maintain the result. Any small amount of hair which does grow back tends to be lighter and finer than the hair growing prior to treatment.
