  • 3-4 sessions: This stage makes hair regrow with a medium texture.
  • 4-6 sessions: If you have had at least 4 to 6 sessions of Laser Hair Removal, you can expect finer hair regrowth in a moderate frequency.

FAQs about Laser Hair Removal

1. Are Laser Hair Removal burns permanent?

You will most likely not experience any burns during the Laser Hair Removal procedure. At Bodycraft, we utilise the Soprano Icing Technology to provide a cooling effect on the target area whilst burning the hair follicles. So you can be assured of a safe and painless treatment. In rare cases, if a burn occurs, a topical ointment can be provided to prevent scarring.

2. Does Laser Hair Removal make the skin lighter?

Laser Hair Removal might make the target area a bit lighter in comparison to the rest of the body. However, this is a temporary side effect of the treatment usually caused due to sun exposure before or after the procedure is administered.
