How many sessions of laser hair removal do you really need? Laser hair removal is a very popular treatment that can provide long-term hair reduction results. However, it’s essential to understand that laser hair removal is not a one-time procedure. To achieve a hair free body in the long run, you’ll need multiple sessions at regular time intervals. The number of sessions required for laser hair removal depends on several factors. These can include your skin type, hair colour, and the treatment area. Generally, most people will require between 6-8 sessions of laser to achieve significant hair reduction.
How many sessions of laser do you really need?
If you never had laser before, in general you’re looking between a minimum of 6-8 treatments. The reason why multiple sessions are required is because laser targets hair follicles that are in their active growth phase. However not all your follicles are growing at the same speed and time. So multiple sessions are necessary to target all those hair follicles effectively.
Additionally, the number of sessions required for laser can vary depending on the treatment area. Areas where the hair is more likely to be triggered by hormonal imbalance like top lip, chin, neck and back may require more sessions than areas like the legs or bikini.
What to expect after your laser hair removal?
You must remember the results of laser hair removal are not immediate. So you shouldn’t loose hope after your very first treatment, as it’s not like waxing or any other methods you may have done in the past. After each session, you’ll notice a gradual reduction in hair growth. Some people may experience complete hair removal after the recommended number of sessions, while others may require occasional touch-up sessions to maintain the results. You may also find the while some parts of your body only need a few sessions other areas require double the amount. But when you put it in comparison to a life time of waxing and shaving, laser will always outperform these traditional methods.
