How Effective Is Laser Hair Removal Treatment?

Are you fed up with always having to worry about shaving, waxing, and other methods of hair removal? You are not alone. Unwanted hair can take up a lot of time and energy but with laser hair removal, that worry can be a thing of the past. The treatment can effectively remove unwanted hair on many areas with the right number of treatments. Here at Laser Skin Solutions Jacksonville in Jacksonville Beach, FL, we can help!

How Effective Is Laser Hair Removal Treatment?

This treatment is highly effective but the number of treatment sessions needed for the hair to stop returning may be different from person to person. Typically, most people find that their unwanted hair ceases to return after 6 to 10 treatment sessions. Sometimes less are required but for thicker, darker hair, more treatments may be needed.

During your consultation, our professionals may be able to give you a better estimate of how many treatment sessions you will need before the hair stops coming back. Just remember that hair that is thinner with a lighter pigment will usually need fewer treatments than those who have thicker, darker hair.

Areas That Can Be Treated

There are a number of areas that can be treated.

The Legs

Removing hair via this treatment on the legs is very popular because it can save you a lot of time and hassle in the long run. Waxing and shaving the legs can be frustrating since it always seems like the hair just comes right back. With this treatment, unwanted hair on the legs can be removed for good on either the top of the legs, the bottom of the legs, or the entire leg area. Skin will be smooth and unwanted hair will be gone!

The Underarms

The underarm area is delicate and therefore prone to irritation such as razor burn. With this treatment, the unwanted hair on the underarm region can be removed for good so that you will always have smooth skin, regardless of the occasion. And, pesky irritation will never have to be a worry again.

The Arms

Thick hair on the arms is a concern for many and if you chose to shave it, it can sometimes come back again even thicker. With this treatment, any unwanted hair on the arms can be eliminated for good so that it is never a concern.

The Bikini Area

The sensitive area around the bikini line is another area that can experience frequent irritation when other means of hair removal are used. With this treatment, that unwanted hair on the bikini area can be gone for good so you can always be ready to hit the pool without worry.

The Upper Lip

Unwanted hair on the upper lip is another problem for many people. It can also become red and irritated when waxed or shaved. This treatment will take care of that unwanted upper lip hair once and for all so you never have to worry about scheduling another waxing appointment.

The Back

Unwanted hair on the back can range from the upper back to the lower back, to all over the entire back. Unwanted hair in this area can be particularly frustrating due to the inability to deal with it on your own. With this treatment, all that unwanted hair on the back can be erased so that you never have to fit another waxing appointment into your busy schedule again.

Other Areas

Are there other areas where unwanted hair is a concern for you? No worries! Simply bring up that area or areas to our staff and they will be able to tell if this treatment can also be helpful there as well.

How It Works

This treatment works by using a laser that focuses only on the hair follicle while ignoring the surrounding skin. Essentially, what it does is heat up that hair follicle and remove the pigment which will stop the cycle of regrowth. The reason that more than 1 treatment might be needed for the hair to stop returning is that the laser needs to target the hair while it is in various stages of growth.

Frequently Asked Questions

Below are some of the most frequently asked questions regarding this treatment. However, our staff will be happy to answer any further questions you may have to ensure that this treatment is going to be right for you.

1. Does It Hurt?

No, this is a completely painless treatment. The laser concentrates only on the hair follicle while completely bypassing the skin around it and therefore will not cause any pain or discomfort. Also, our professionals will ensure that you are completely comfortable throughout treatment. You do not have to be concerned with any pain at all.

2. Is This Safe?

Absolutely. This treatment has been performed for many years and is totally safe for both you and your skin. You don’t have to worry about any safety concerns because of this treatment.

3. How Do I Know if It’s Right for Me?

If you are someone who is tired of the endless cycle of hair removal on the legs, the arms, the back, the bikini area, the upper lip, the underarms or other regions, it is safe to say that this is a treatment that you will benefit from.

4. Can I Have Multiple Areas Treated During the Same Session?

Of course! If you have more than 1 area in which you would like to have unwanted hair gone for good, you can have them treated during the same session. So, if you would like to have your upper lip treated as well as your legs, both can be accomplished in the same session. This is particularly helpful for those who have a busier schedule and want to take care of all of their areas of concern at the same time.

5. How Do I Get Ready for My Treatment Session?

Instead of “getting ready” for your treatment session, you actually want to do the opposite. Instead of tending to the unwanted hair by removing it, you are going to want to let it grow prior to your treatment session. This will help the laser target the hair while it is in different stages of regrowth and that will make the treatment even more effective.

6. How Long Will My Treatment Session Take?

The amount of time that your treatment session will take is going to depend on the area or areas you wish to have treated. But, most sessions take about 30 minutes to 1 hour. The longer treatments will occur for larger surface areas being treated, such as the legs. Either way, this is not a treatment that is going to take a lot of time out of your day.

7. What if I Have Thicker Hair?

Even if you do have thicker hair, this treatment can likely still help. However, more treatment sessions may be needed to stop thicker hair from returning for good. Most people with thicker hair find that 10 treatments will take care of their unwanted hair for good. Again, our experts may be able to give you an estimate of how many treatment sessions you will need before you reach your desired results.

8. Will This Dry Out My Skin?

No, actually it is quite the opposite. Because you will no longer need to use other methods of hair removal that tend to dry out the skin, your skin will likely stay more hydrated than it did before. Many people find the more hydrated skin to be just another benefit of this amazing treatment.

9. Is There Downtime?

No. A great part about this treatment is that you are able to go on with your day the moment that your session is over. You do not have to worry about taking downtime out of your schedule as a result of this treatment. You can just go about your normal activities as soon as you are finished! It really is that simple.
