What happens when you miss your laser hair removal appointment at Thérapie Clinic

Have you spent the last few weeks catching up on your beauty appointments? Trust Thérapie Clinic when we say we have missed treating you almost as much as you’ve missed getting your treatments.

If your laser hair removal appointment has been at the top of your list or your sessions were interrupted due to the COVID-19, here is what you need to know about your next appointment at Thérapie Clinic.

Laser hair removal sessions are typically spaced six weeks apart to treat hair during the regrowth cycle. You will need a course of treatments as laser only works on hair that is in the growth phase of the hair cycle, known as Anagen. The other two phases of the hair cycle, called Catagen and Telogen, mean the hair is either dormant or falling out; the laser doesn’t impact it. As all of your hair is in different phases at different times, you need several treatments spread out over a number of weeks to ensure the laser ‘catches’ the each of the hairs in their growth phase at some point.

This repeated process leads to permanent hair reduction. However, if appointments are missed or spaced out for too long, such as four months, then on hormonal areas such as face, one may see regrowth. On nonhormonal areas, depending on what stage the person is with their treatments, the difference should not be too much and can be made up during the follow-up treatments.

How this long gap between treatments will affect your results largely depends on the individual and how many sessions you’ve had so far.

Anyone heading back to Thérapie Clinic to resume treatment after this hiatus should be prepared to need an additional session or two, or at least come back with a higher frequency than before.

For clients who missed sessions due to COVID-19, we may do their spacing shorter and apply a different regimen to give them optimum results. Those on a treatment plan in our facility will be taken care of, so that they get the optimum results from their treatments.

If you do need to reschedule or cancel your appointment, Thérapie Clinic will do our best to accommodate you – but please keep in mind that demand is higher than usual as people get back to their normal lives!
