Q: I’ve been through a couple Depilar Sessions. Why don’t I see a difference?

Answer: The Depilar System only works on hair that is visible and in the anagen or growth phase. Each hair growth cycle must be targeted separately and, depending on the specific area, 4-5 sessions may be required before a visible result.

Q: I just started the Depilar System and am seeing more hair, not less?

Answer: Often a temporary increase in hair growth occurs following the first session as the body is reacting to the hair removal process. Removing hair by the root can reset the anagen phase for hair producing cells. Dormant hair producing cells are activated and will allow for increased efficacy for subsequent sessions and even more visible results.

Q: Are there restrictions to sun exposure after a Depilar Application?

Answer: After any waxing or sugaring, sun exposure should be avoided for 24 hours, giving the skin a chance to recuperate. And as always, be sure to wear sunscreen, avoid the sun at noon and don’t stay in the sun too long!
