What Is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser treatments are one of the most commonly done procedures in the U.S. as more men and women are trying them out. Medical lasers have such a wide variety of uses, ranging from tackling body hair to improving the appearance of skin. Laser hair removal uses this advanced system to permanently eliminate unwanted hair, wherever it might be. It’s a simple treatment that destroys hair follicles, thus saving you from a lifetime of shaving and wax. These traditional methods only pause the issue, with waxed or shaved hair always returning sooner or later. But laser hair removal goes to the literal source of body hair, delivering lasting results and an aesthetic you will love.
Laser hair removal works over a series of quick treatment sessions, gradually reducing hair in your treatment areas. With as few as three sessions, you say goodbye to the tyranny of body hair for good and enjoy smoother, vibrant skin.
What Body Parts Can Have Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal treatments can be carried out on different target areas of the body. If there is hair there that you do not want, the odds are this treatment will be able to remove it. Treatable body areas include:
The Benefits of Laser Hair Removal
There are many advantages of laser hair treatment, especially when compared to traditional methods. Some of the greatest advantages it can give you include:
How Many Sessions Of Laser Hair Removal Do You Need?
Like most people, you probably find it hard to bare your skin when it is covered in hair you wish you could get rid of. Unwanted hair can be frustrating as it affects your confidence during spring and summer when you would love to feel the warmth of sunlight on your skin. Shaving might seem like a great solution, but constantly buying new razors and shaving cream adds up quickly. If you are not looking to spend all that money (and time) on shaving, laser hair removal sessions are the effective solution to try.
Laser hair removal is best done in sessions, but the number of sessions required for best results varies. Below are some of the factors
We all have different amounts of hair, and hair growth occurs at a different rate. For most people, their body type requires about 4 sessions, while others may require up to 6 sessions. It is rare for patients to need up to 8 sessions to get the desired results.
Areas to be treated
Another factor determining the ideal number of sessions needed for optimal results is the treatment of the target areas. Commonly treated areas include legs. Underarms, areas of the face, bikini line, and Brazilian area. The larger the areas you want to be treated, the more likely you will need more than 4 treatment sessions.
Like many other procedures, all patients do not have the same goal. While some want to reduce the amount of hair in certain areas of their body, others want to eliminate hairs from their body completely. For example, some men prefer to retain some facial hair, so they typically have the amount of hair reduced so they can shave their beards easily. The advantage of partial elimination is that there are fewer incidents of razor burn.
Hair growth cycles
Hair follicles are at different stages of growth, making it impossible to get rid of them all at once. While some hair strands fall out, others are robustly in their prime. Hair removal sessions are effective for hair follicles that are active and visible above the skin’s surface. After the first session, you might have to wait for some time for new hair strands to emerge so they can be eliminated.
Do Laser Remove Hair Permanently?
Laser hair removal is often praised as a ‘permanent’ way of removing unwanted hair, but that is not entirely true. Laser hair removal puts the hair follicles in a state of dormancy for a long time. One of its biggest attractions is keeping the skin completely free of hair for much longer than shaving and waxing. Depending on various factors, laser hair removal can last for months or even years.
After you complete the recommended number of sessions, your treated skin will remain free for a long time, but since it’s not permanent hair loss, regrowth will occur, but the hairs will be lighter, finer, and fewer. In effect, this means that laser permanently reduces hair. In other words, it damages hair growth but doesn’t destroy them.
If you’re looking to prevent regrowth, it’s crucial to have a yearly touch-up session as recommended by your dermatologist. Also, keep in mind that hair growth may still occur in other areas of your body not targeted after undergoing the treatments.
Tips to make laser hair removal last longer
If you’re looking to get more out of the treatment, here are a few things you can do to make the removal last for as long as possible:
- Choose a qualified dermatologist with years of experience in providing laser hair removal treatments
- Don’t wax for at least 4-6 weeks before your appointment
- Protect your skin by avoiding the sun for at least 4-6 weeks
- Shave a day before the treatment to remove hair above the skin but leave the shaft intact
Is Laser Hair Removal Right for Me?

The treatment is also open to a wide range of patients, with almost any skin or hair type being suitable for the treatment.
