What to Expect with Laser Hair Removal Treatment

Published on: October 15, 2018

No one enjoys shaving in the shower. It is time consuming and a bit of an annoyance. Anyone who has ever picked up a razor has wondered what it would be like to not have to shave anymore. That is a real possibility with laser hair removal treatments.

What is Laser Hair Removal

A small laser emits a pulse of energy at the hair, removing it permanently. It focuses in on the darker, coarser follicles and zaps them. Some people do find it uncomfortable, but the sessions do not last very long. Some areas are more sensitive than others. After the session you will see a red spot where the follicle had been, but it will fade quickly.

How Many Sessions are Needed?

Six sessions are recommended by many doctors. When you have the treatment, the hairs are at different stages of growth, so more sessions will be recommended to get each follicle at the proper time of growth.  Sessions will become shorter and shorter, as more hairs will have been permanently removed.

What Body Parts Can Hair be Removed From?

The most common area for hair removal are the legs.  But underarms, upper lips, and bikini lines are also popular areas for hair removal. Removing dark hair from the arms is also desirable.

As with any cosmetic procedure, it is important to do the research to find an experienced doctor or service provider who can do the treatment safely. There are at home kits for those who are adventurous enough to try it on their own.  Laser hair removal has been around for many years, and it can easily and quickly get rid of unwanted hair from many parts of the body.
