Imagine never having to shave or wax again! Laser hair removal is the answer if you want to remove unwanted hair permanently. While treating hair follicles during the active growth phase without damaging the skin, laser hair removal can achieve a flawless, smooth, hair-free appearance on virtually any body area. This makes it the perfect solution for both men and women looking to permanently remove unwanted hair without all the time-consuming upkeep and maintenance. Everyone’s hair removal needs differ and will depend on the treated area. Let’s look at some of the most common body areas for laser hair removal and what you can expect.
The face is a popular area for laser hair removal and can include places like the upper lip, chin, cheeks, neck, jawline, sideburns, ears, or brows. Most women don’t prefer the look of facial hair, and constant waxing or plucking can be painful and time-consuming. Many men can also benefit from laser hair removal, avoiding ingrown hairs and bumps from continuous shaving. Because hair removal on the face tends to be a smaller area, this procedure is quick and can usually be done in just a few minutes. However, you may need multiple treatments, especially if your hair is light and thin (about 4-6 sessions). Since the hair on the face tends to grow quickly, your treatment intervals may need to be closer together than required for other body parts.
Imagine never having to spend time shaving your legs in the shower again! Since this is a larger body area, a full laser hair removal section for the legs might take around an hour, less if you only plan on getting your lower legs done. Hairy legs can become permanently smooth and silky after several sessions spaced 6-8 weeks apart. The exact number of sessions will vary by individual.
Have you ever missed your last waxing session and felt self-conscious at the beach? Laser hair removal for the bikini area might be the solution for you. This is a very sensitive area and can be incredibly painful to wax regularly, and frequent shaving can make you prone to unsightly ingrown hairs and red bumps. Therefore, the bikini area is a popular option for permanent hair removal. And some great news – hair in the bikini area tends to be thick and dark, making laser hair removal even more effective with faster results than other areas. Don’t want to go Brazilian? No problem! Standard and strip bikini lines are also an option.
Underarms are a popular area for laser hair removal, providing a smooth, hair-free appearance, free from the shadow of hair that can often occur a day after shaving. Since hair in this region is typically dark, laser hair removal will quickly deliver noticeable results. Each armpit only takes about five minutes, with multiple sessions needed to achieve the best results.
Hairy back, anyone? Since this is a large body part, laser hair removal on the back may take more than an hour. However, since the hair here grows slowly, your treatments will likely be spaced out over longer periods – about 12-16 weeks apart. Since hair in this area can be thick and heavy, you should see noticeable results quickly.
These are just a few common areas, but anywhere you have hair, you can remove it! Some other places you can utilize laser hair removal include the torso, arms, knuckles, hands, and feet.
