If you have problematic excess body hair, it can be easy to feel trapped. Endless shaving, waxing, and plucking can feel like a chore, and often causes us to feel stressed and frustrated. Thankfully, there are a variety of treatments available at Laser Skin Solutions Jacksonville that can result in complete or near-complete hair reduction after first laser treatment.
How Long Does Laser Hair Removal Take?
Depending on the size of the treatment area, hair reduction after first laser treatment can be achieved between 30 and 90 minutes. Small areas, such as the upper lip, can be treated in as little as three minutes. Larger areas on those who are uncommonly hairy (such as a full male back area, for example) can take over an hour. For further information, you may want to discuss treatment options with our experts.
How Realistic Is Complete Hair Reduction after First Laser Treatment?
Ultimately, no two people are alike, and the number of treatments can vary dependent on the following criteria:
• The level of hair density
• Your natural hair-growth cycle
• The treatment area
While some people can achieve complete or near-complete hair reduction after first laser treatment, others may find that several repeated treatments are required to completely eradicate unwanted body hair.
Many people tend to notice some level of hair reduction after first laser treatment, resulting in a decrease in the frequency in which they need to shave. Most people lose an average of between 20-30 percent of active hair growth with each subsequent treatment. Those who don’t achieve complete hair reduction after first laser treatment will find that when hair grows back, it will be less concentrated and a lot finer than usual.
Because follow-up treatments are shorter, they also tend to be marginally more cost-effective. For those who want to remove particularly stubborn, thick hair, laser hair removal typically takes between 6 to 9 treatments to achieve completely permanent hair reduction. Treatments are usually performed between 6 and 10 weeks apart – your skincare professional will be able to advise you further on the best course of action to take.
