If you’re considering getting laser hair removal, you should know that you will need several treatments to see your optimal hair removal results. While laser hair removal takes time and patience, most people feel that the results turn out more than worth it.

What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal causes hair follicles in your skin to stop producing hair. As a result, over the course of several treatments, more and more follicles become inactivated and you will see less hair after each session.
How does Laser Hair Removal Work?
By using an advanced long-pulse Nd:YAG laser, Juvanew Medspa providers can perform laser hair removal on all skin types and tones, even darker skin tones that could not receive treatment with older types of lasers. This laser emits energy that has no reaction to skin cells, so you feel a very little discomfort from the laser pulses.
The laser targets melanin, a pigment found in the root of the hair and in the hair follicle. This deactivates the hair follicle, preventing it from producing hair anymore. The follicle with a hair root in it will respond to the laser energy while the skin does not.
How To Prepare for Laser Hair Removal
You should take several steps to prepare before laser hair removal to get the most out of your treatment sessions.
No Waxing, Plucking, or Epilating
All these hair removal methods pull out the hair root. Without a hair root, the laser has nothing to target. You can still shave, and you should shave about a day before your session to keep the hair short.
Bleaching the hair will lighten it all the way to the root. Again, this keeps the laser from targeting these hair follicles because there is no pigment.
Avoid sun Exposure
Not only does sun exposure make your skin more sensitive to damage, but tanning can make your skin tone more like your hair pigment tone, reducing the laser’s effectiveness.
How Many Sessions for Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal usually takes six to eight sessions to remove all the hair. While this may seem like a lot, the treatments have to account for the natural cycles of your hair. At any given time, some hairs will be in an active, growing phase while others will remain in a resting state. Resting follicles cannot be treated, so a series of sessions make sure all follicles get treated.
What Results Will I See With Laser Hair Removal?
Results from laser hair removal will last about two years, although when hair does start to grow back, it will look thinner and feel finer and softer, and you will only see a few hairs at once. Maintenance treatment at this point will catch these stray follicles, which may have been resting during the entire treatment.
