Hairy bodies come in all shapes and sizes; so does the amount of hair growth you may have. While some patients are very lucky to have a light growth, others may suffer from excessive growth all over their face and body. Luckily laser hair removal is suitable for each of these cases. But how many sessions does it take for laser hair removal to work? The number of sessions may vary person to person, and even between different areas of your body.
Laser hair removal
Laser works by emitting heat, that targets your hair follicles. By destroying them it enables future hair growth. However for your treatment to be effective regular sessions are required, so that all the hair is successfully targeted. The laser works best on hair that’s in its growing stage. But as not all your hair is growing at the same speed, the treatment needs to be repeated out at regular intervals. Ensuring that all the growth cycles are effectively targeted.
How many sessions does it take for laser hair removal?
The number of sessions you need may very much differ from your friends for instance. Or you can also find that while some parts of your body can respond much faster than others. This is all natural, and simply mean that some parts may need more treatments than others. And some patients may require more sessions than their friends. So results should never be compared on this basis. As a standard you’d be recommended to do at least 8 sessions at regular intervals if you are new to laser hair removal. But some patients may require regular top ups. In some cases it means a whole new course of treatment, but in most cases a few maintenance session on a yearly basis.
But even if some areas take longer to respond the number of treatments you’d have would never be as many as you would wax, shave or epilate in your life time.
