There is one benefit of laser hair removal for you underarms that you may not have considered – the fact that it can resolve darker pigmentation in your underarms. This will ensure that your underarms aren’t excessively darker than the skin on the rest of your body.
While laser hair removal can work on any body part you wish to remove hair from, it is especially effective for underarms, on the bikini, lip, and chin areas.
How many sessions does it take to get the optimal results? For underarm treatments in particular, we would recommend a minimum course of 6 sessions every 6-8 weeks to have 80-90% reduction. However, hair growth is hormonal so results could vary from one individual to another and certain areas could require additional sessions. The sessions themselves take five to 10 minutes.
There is minimal pain during underarm laser hair removal. In fact, many patients are surprised when the process is over. The most common comparison we hear is that the laser feels like getting a rubber band lightly smacked against your skin.
Underarm Laser Hair Removal Permanent effect is reached when laser light destroys the hair follicle, and a hair can no longer grow from it. Generally, clients need about two to six laser treatments in order to completely get rid of hair. You can expect to see about a 10% to 25% reduction in hair after your first treatment. As you continue your treatments, more and more hair will fall out. Laser hair removal uses light to target the pigment in individual hairs. The light travels down the shaft of the hair and into the hair follicle to destroy it. As result, a hair can no longer grow.
