How Effective Is Laser Hair Removal?
This treatment can stop hair removal entirely with the proper number of treatment sessions. However, the number of treatment sessions needed for unwanted hair to stop coming back is going to be different for each person. The number of sessions needed will depend on hair thickness and hair pigment and typically, once our experts evaluate the unwanted hair, they can give you a better idea of how many sessions you will need.
So, laser hair removal is highly effective when the right amount of treatments are used. Most people find that 6 to 10 treatments are enough to stop the hair from returning for good.
Areas That Can Be Treated
There are quite a few areas where unwanted hair grows and this treatment can help! If you do have an area that’s not mentioned, do not hesitate to bring that up with our professionals so they can let you know if this treatment can help in those areas also.
The Bikini Area
Because this area is so prone to irritation when using other methods of hair removal such as waxing and shaving, it is a very popular area for treatment. With this treatment, unwanted hair on the bikini area can be removed for good and that means you will never again have to fret about irritation! The area will be smooth and free of unwanted hair and the pain of redness or irritation!
This is probably the most popular area for this treatment as dealing with unwanted hair on the legs can tend to take more time than it does in other regions. This treatment will get rid of unwanted hair on any part of the legs you desire, or the whole area. Legs will be smooth all the time and all that shaving and waxing will be a thing of the past!
If you have hair on the arms that is thicker and darker in pigment, it may be a concern for you. Also, sometimes when shaving hair on the arms, it can come back thicker. This treatment can take care of that unwanted hair once and for all so you won’t have to worry about shaving or making matters worse.
At-home hair removal on the back can be a real pain and sometimes impossible for many people. If you have unwanted hair on the back and are tired of waxing appointments to combat it, this treatment can help! It will get rid of unwanted hair on any part of the back in no time.
The Upper Lip
Upper lip hair is another area of concern for a lot of people. It is also prone to irritation which only makes it more frustrating. This treatment can take care of unwanted hair on the upper lip and stop it from returning!
The Underarm Area
The sensitive area under the arms can also become more of an issue due to razor burn and other irritation. This treatment can get rid of unwanted hair on the underarms, leaving them smooth and irritation-free for good.
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work
This treatment works by using a laser that heats up the hair follicle of the unwanted hair. Since the laser is highly concentrated, it does this without harming or even impacting the surrounding skin. Once the hair follicle is heated enough, it destroys the pigment and therefore kills the hair at the source. Often, the hair follicle needs to be heated in various stages of regrowth so that the hair will cease to return for good!
