How Many Laser Hair Removal Treatments Do I Need to See Results?Want to get silky-smooth and hair-free skin in time for the summer months – without constantly shaving or waxing? If you’re ready to break up with your razor, you may be a good candidate for laser hair removal treatments. This popular cosmetic procedure slowly destroys hair follicle roots within the targeted area, thus slowly regrowth until clients are able to go several weeks without shaving. But exactly how many laser hair removal treatments does the average person need until they see results?
The Ideal Number of Laser Hair Removal TreatmentsEach person is different, so there’s no one right answer for the ideal number of laser hair removal treatments. However, most patients can expect to undergo about 3 to 5 laser hair removal procedures, each spaced about three to four weeks apart. Between each procedure, you’ll notice your hair follicle regrowth start to slow down, so you won’t have to shave as much between appointments. Laser hair removal treatments can be used on a variety of areas, including the legs, stomach, bikini area, arms, underarms, back, and more.

What to Expect During Your Laser Hair Removal ProcedureLaser hair removal procedures are a lot faster and far less painful than they were about a generation ago, so clients can expect a smooth and comfortable process. During your laser hair removal procedure, a technician will treat the targeted hair with a laser device, which works to heat hair follicles until they fall out. The entire procedure takes about 30 minutes to perform, during which time you may feel a slight warming and tingling sensation. Be sure to wear sunscreen immediately after your laser hair removal procedure, as your skin will be particularly sensitive to the sun’s UV rays.
