Oops! You Missed Laser Hair Removal Treatment. Now What?

Woman (model) looks down at her watch with a concerned expression.

What to do when you’re self-conscious about unwanted hair but can’t stand shaving, waxing, and plucking? Consider trying laser hair removal. It’s a popular choice at Pure MedSpa for men and women who want a long-lasting and hassle-free hair removal solution.

But have you heard consistency is key to achieving optimal laser hair removal results? What happens if you miss one of your sessions? Not to worry, because we’re about to delve into how laser hair removal works and what steps to take if (oops!) you missed laser hair removal treatment.

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

Our preferred method is a safe, fast, and comfortable treatment called BARE HR™ by Sciton laser hair removal. BARE HR uses innovative laser technology to target the pigment in hair follicles. The hair follicle absorbs the light energy, damaging the root while protecting the surrounding skin. This inhibits future hair growth and leaves your skin silky smooth.

Our clinician uses a hand-held device during your procedure to send quick pulses of light energy to the treatment area. We customize the specific wavelength and intensity based on hair thickness, color, treatment area, and skin type. Multiple sessions are usually required to deliver your desired results.

Key benefits of BARE HR treatment include:

  • Uses 3 wavelengths to precisely target varying hair depths
  • Targets unwanted hair anywhere on the body (from head to toe!)
  • Works safely on all skin types
  • Features cooling technology to maximize comfort during and after treatment
  • Reduces hair growth permanently and makes any remaining hair weaker and less noticeable

How Many Laser Hair Removal Sessions Will I Need?

Don’t throw away your razor after one treatment! It’s essential to understand that laser hair removal requires patience. During your consultation, we’ll explore your concerns and give you an idea of how many sessions it will take to achieve your hair removal goals. This varies based on the size and location of your treatment area. Most patients notice immediate improvement after one session but require approximately 3 to 6 treatments spaced about a month apart for optimal results. This is because hair follicles cycle through different growth phases. While results are gradual, they are long-lasting.

What Happens If I Miss a Treatment?

We understand that you’re busy, and it might be necessary to cancel or reschedule one of your treatment sessions. But trying your best to maintain your treatments is essential to continuing your progress. While consistency is critical for optimal results, you can take several steps to minimize the consequences of a missed treatment:

  • Contact your provider: Contact us before your appointment to cancel your session. In addition to informing us about your missed session, we can offer you guidance about adjusting your treatment plan accordingly.
  • Reschedule: Rebook your appointment ASAP to minimize the “hiccup” in your treatment plan. Additional treatments may be necessary to maintain your progress.
  • Maintain your momentum. Moving forward, try to make all your scheduled treatments to keep your results on track.
