Laser hair removal is growing in popularity, as more and more men and women around the country decide to ditch the razors and stop the painful waxing. If you’re considering laser hair removal yourself, you’re smart to be doing some research, and asking questions.
But you should know the answer to the question “How many laser hair removal treatments do I need?” is different for every individual. That’s because no two people are alike. Some of the factors that can affect how many treatments you need include:
- The amount of hair to be removed
- The area of your body being treated
- The color of your hair
- The type of hair being removed
- Your skin tone
We can tell you that you will need multiple treatments, spaced about a month apart. This is because not all of your hair is in the actively growing stage at one time. Many clients see results in as little as 3 treatments, but for optimal results, in most cases, we recommend 6 initial laser hair removal treatments. You may also need an annual touch-up appointment.
Each treatment will last 5-60 minutes, depending on the size and location of the area being treated. For instance, back hair laser removal might take longer than upper lip laser hair removal. The best way to get the most accurate answer for your personal hair removal goals is to schedule a free consultation.
