If you desire silky, smooth skin without any razor burn or painful waxing, laser hair removal may be the solution you’ve been looking for. And if your goal is to hit the beach next summer with no hair in unwanted places, now is a great time to get started on your goal.
November might seem like a strange time to be thinking about Spring Break or summer events, but it’s not if you realize that laser hair removal is part of a long-range plan. Laser hair removal is so popular because it permanently reduces hair growth, making it easy to enjoy carefree, hair-free days at the beach without worrying about the look of unwanted hair.
How Many Laser Hair Removal Treatments Do I Need?
That’s a good question, and the only way to find out for sure is to come in for a laser hair removal consultation. There are several factors the hair removal specialist will factor in, including:
- The amount of hair to be removed
- The type of hair to be removed
- The area of your body being targeted for laser hair removal
- Your hair color
- Your skin tone
Some people may see results in as little as 3 sessions, but for most people, we recommend 6 initial appointments spaced one month apart. This is because your hair grows at different stages, so we can only remove about a third of it at one time. Treatment sessions can last from 5 minutes to an hour. You would then need a maintenance visit about once a year for touch-ups. Any hair that grows will be thinner and finer.
There’s such a wide range because everyone is different. Removing back hair would take longer than removing underarm hair, for instance.
But, Wait. Can’t I Just Wax?
Theoretically, you could wax. But you’ll have to do it more often, and you’ll have to endure some pain. We believe laser hair removal is a more comfortable and effective hair removal solution for most clients.

Laser Hair Removal Provides Real Results in a Safe Environment
When performed by a trained laser hair removal specialist, this hair removal technique is safe for your skin. Based on your skin tone and the color of the hair you want removed, your aesthetician may also recommend electrolysis.
We do not recommend laser hair removal for our pregnant clients, as there is no testing to see how it might affect an unborn child. Unwanted hair that occurs with pregnancy usually fades or goes away once the baby is born and your hormones return to normal.
