How Long Between Laser Hair Removal Sessions Do I Need to Wait?
Many people spend hours of their lives shaving, waxing, and plucking, removing hair from their legs, arms, face, and other areas for smooth skin. However, these treatments are often uncomfortable and only provide hair removal for a few days before the hair grows back. Laser hair removal provides patients with long-lasting results after six to eight sessions.
How Long Does Laser Hair Removal Take?
One of the primary benefits of laser hair removal is that with a series of treatments, you can finally enjoy long-lasting smoothness instead of constantly shaving. Laser hair removal takes around 30-60 minutes per session, depending on the size of the treatment area. Our Nd: YAG laser is comfortable and provides faster treatment than other laser hair removal technologies.
How Long Should I Wait Between Laser Hair Removal Sessions?
Hair grows in phases, one of which is the growth phase. The Nd: YAG laser targets hair in the growth phase by heating the pigment within the hair follicles. The heat destroys the hair, which falls out over the course of a few days, providing long-lasting results.
To treat all the hair in the target area, repeated treatments are needed every growth cycle until the hair is removed. If you receive laser hair removal earlier than six weeks, you risk not having enough hair in the growth phase to remove. We recommend spacing your laser hair removal sessions six to eight weeks apart.
How Do Laser Hair Removal Results Last?
After your final treatment, your results may last up to two years. Laser hair removal is semi-permanent, and you may need maintenance treatments for long-term hair reduction.
At Juvanew Medspa, we recommend avoiding sun exposure and self-tanners for a few weeks before treatment as it makes it harder for the laser to target the pigment in your hair follicles. We also recommend you stop taking a blood thinning medication before your laser hair removal treatment.
We do not recommend plucking or waxing before your appointment, as it lessens the hair follicles in the growth phase. You may shave the day before treatment. Please discuss with our laser technicians how to prepare for your treatment.
Should I Get Laser Hair Removal?
You are a good candidate for laser hair removal if you have unwanted hair on your legs, arms, bikini line, back, or other common treatment areas. The Nd: YAG laser works best on medium-to-light skin with dark hair follicles. Laser hair removal cannot target white, blonde, or gray hair.
Your skin will be sensitive to sunlight immediately after your appointment. We recommend avoiding direct sun exposure and wearing sunscreen immediately after your treatment.
