Frequently Asked Questions
How Many Sessions Do I Need for Laser Hair Removal?
Everyone’s body is different, and different biological factors can impact how many sessions you need in order to fully remove your unwanted hair. Generally, clients need about two to six laser treatments in order to completely get rid of hair.
You can expect to see about a 10% to 25% reduction in hair after your first treatment. As you continue your treatments, more and more hair will fall out, and you’ll notice that it continues to grow back more slowly.
How Often Can I Have a Hair Removal Treatment?
Generally, clients can have hair removal every four to eight weeks. One factor to keep in mind in regards to future treatments is that hair does not grow at the same rate on different parts of the body. If you are having treatments on an area where hair grows quickly, such as your upper lip, you might have laser treatments every four weeks. If you’re having treatments done on a part of the body where hair grows slowly, like the back, you might only have treatments every 10 to 15 weeks.
Is laser permanent hair removal?
After having your full set of laser treatments, you will be hair-free for months or even years. If you grow hair again in the treated area, you will notice that it’s far thinner and less noticeable than your hair was prior to treatment. You may require occasional maintenance treatments in order to remain hair-free.
Can Laser Removal Help With Other Issues?
One great benefit of laser removal is that it helps with ingrown hairs. This is a miracle for people who tend to get ingrown hairs from shaving their legs or bikini area. Switching to laser removal won’t just get rid of the hair more effectively and permanently, but it will also give you clearer, smoother skin with less irritation.
Is There Any Downtime?
There is no downtime for this treatment. You should be able to go about the rest of your day normally without discomfort.
How Long Does It Take for My Hair to Fall Out?
The hair in the treated area doesn’t fall out immediately, but it will shed over a period of time: usually days to weeks.
Hair growth happens in cycles, and the repeated treatments work best when they target the follicles in the new-growth stage. As you continue having treatments, your hair will continue to fall out and thin until it’s gone. You might need maintenance laser treatments to keep your hair gone long-term.
What Body Parts Can Undergo This Treatment?
The most common locations to have laser removal treatment for unwanted hair are the legs, armpits, upper lip, chin, and bikini line. That being said, you can basically have this treatment done anywhere on your body except on your eyelids and the surrounding areas.
Get Rid of the Hair
It’s time to free yourself from the burden of unwanted hair. Laser hair removal is a painless and effective way to achieve long-term hair reduction so you can not only look your best but feel your best, too.
