How many laser hair removal treatments are needed?

Laser hair removal is a great innovation that will help achieve the smooth skin every woman desires. After the very first treatment you will notice impressive results. Hair in the area that has been treated with an alexandrite or diode laser will disappear, leaving soft and velvety skin.

Prepared for your first laser hair removal

During any laser hair removal procedure, a concentrated beam of light is used to target the area where you want to remove hair. The pigment in hairs (melanin) absorbs light and generates heat, destroying hairs and preventing their growth. Through innovative devices such as the alexandrite laser, this method of hair removal is extremely effective. An important factor is that the hairs are in a growth phase. But there is no way that all hairs are in the anagen phase at the same time. For this, one procedure is not enough.

Laser hair removal can be performed on almost all parts of the body. Smaller areas like the upper lip only take a minute, while larger areas like the legs or back can take longer.

Factors affecting the number of laser hair removal procedures

To achieve permanently smooth skin, it will take several visits to a laser studio. The number of laser hair removal treatments needed depends on individual factors such as genetics, skin type, hair thickness and texture, and hormonal balance. If you are doing laser hair removal for the first time, you need to be patient and realize that the desired results are achieved with perseverance.

Typically, 4 to 8 laser treatments are recommended at intervals of about 6 weeks to achieve permanent hair removal and reduce hair growth. Naturally, to be at ease, you need to turn to specialists in this field. You can book a consultation for laser hair removal in Varna from Studio Impulse, where they will tell you the exact number of visits required and the period in which they should be done. However, once you go through the prescribed procedures, in your chosen area, you can be sure that  the effect is long lasting

After the third procedure, about 50% of the hairs are expected to be gone for good. With each subsequent procedure, this percentage usually increases. Reducing hair regrowth also depends on the area you are treating. The number of visits to the laser hair removal studio are individual for each person. 

Main factors on which the number of laser hair removal procedures depend

Every person is different and the body, including the hair, does not respond the same to laser treatment. So there is no one answer to the question: How many laser hair removal treatments are needed? The number of visits required will be determined by the laser hair removal center you choose. They will consider various factors such as:

  • Area to be treated and skin color: Smaller and easily accessible areas will take less time, while larger and harder to reach areas such as thighs, intimates and others will require more. Laser hair removal gives the best results with fair skin and black hairs.
  • Hairs that are shaved always have active growth and the results are seen faster;
  • Hair colour: Darker black hairs are more easily and quickly removed because the melanin pigment absorbs  the laser beam.
  • Hormonal changes with age: Hormonal changes affect hair growth and therefore the number of laser hair removal sessions.

What is the interval between laser hair removal treatments?

The interval between laser treatments is usually 4-8 weeks. It is important to follow the instructions of the specialist, who will carefully plan the next visits. It is extremely important to observe the interval instructions. These treatments are planned so that hair reduction increases with each visit. If you go too early or too late, it can make it harder to reach your goal.

When is laser hair removal expected to show results?

You will notice results from laser hair removal after the first treatment. After 2-3 visits to the laser studio, you will start to feel that the hair becomes relatively thinner and less. Only after 3-4 sessions the growth process slows down significantly, giving you smoother and clearer skin. After completing the entire course, you will be able to enjoy almost zero hair growth for at least 6 months or one, two years. If hair growth occurs after this period, several maintenance treatments may be needed once or twice a year. The most exciting news is that you will no longer need to wax, shave or use hair removal creams in this area.
