Summer may be over, but that doesn’t mean you’re letting up on your hair removal regimen. Besides, between holiday parties and cocktails, you need to keep your skin looking on point. For many people, that means undergoing laser hair removal treatments so they’re ready to shine for the holiday season!
Laser hair removal is an excellent cosmetic treatment for people who want to cut down on shaving time or eliminate excessive body hair. A laser hair removal treatment can be used on multiple parts of the body, including the legs, arms, armpits, back, stomach, bikini line, and even the face.
Newest advances in laser hair removal mean you can expect to see excessive hair disappear faster – but exactly how many treatments will you need to undergo before you see the results you’re looking for?
While results vary based on the specific laser hair removal technology, most clients can expect to undergo between 3-5 treatments. Keep in mind that these treatments can’t be done all in a short period of time; they need to be scheduled 4 to 8 weeks apart. The reasoning for this is simple: the treatments need to be conducted at a certain follicular growth stage.
With each hair removal treatment, you’ll notice that your hair follicles become finer and less noticeable. Pretty soon, hair regrowth will be greatly reduced. Following the treatment series, maintenance will be required to keep the hair growth from returning.
You may notice slight redness and swelling after each treatment; these side effects usually disappear after a few days. You’ll need to wear sunscreen to protect your skin, as it will be particularly sensitive after your laser hair removal treatment.
