Whether you’re just researching laser hair removal or you’ve already started your course, for sure you’ll want to know how many laser hair removal session you will need? There isn’t a guaranteed set of numbers; and in general each patient can respond differently to the treatment. You may even find that some areas of your body have great results faster than other parts. But this is all normal and part of the procedure. Based on our 20+ years experience and medical research, in general you’re recommended to do a minimum of 6-9 sessions. With potentially some top up sessions needed later on.
How laser hair removal work?
Laser works by emitting a concentrated beam of light. This light turns into heat and designed to destroy your hair follicles. For the heat to reach your hair’s root, the treatment relies on the pigment ( colour in your hair); which attracts the light of the laser and transports the heat where it kills of the follicles. As a result instantly enabling future hair growth. So that’s easy so far. But for the treatment to work, your hair follicles have to be at a specific growth stage. And this is where it gets complicated. Not all your hair is growing at the same speed, which means the treatment has to be repeated until each new cycles of hair is destroyed.
How many laser hair removal many sessions will you need?
A full course of 6 to 9 sessions will result in a permanent reduction of hair growth.
However, many of our patients, at Skin Perfection, London’s award winning skin and laser hair removal Clinic; see remarkable results even after the first session, depending on the individual’s circumstances.
These include, but aren’t limited to hair type, hair colour, skin tone, medication, genetic variation, hormones, patient compliance and tolerance to the treatment.
We will discuss the procedure with you in detail, including the likely number of sessions needed, in your consultation for the treatment.
