How to Decide How Many Laser Hair Removal Sessions I Need?

Laser hair removal offers a wealth of benefits, but if you are considering getting the procedure done yourself, you may be wondering how many sessions you will need to complete your treatment. Here at Atlantis Clinic, our treatment packages usually consist of 5-7 sessions to achieve the smooth look most people desire. Unlike laser hair removal of the past, you no longer have to spend a year of your life getting treatment, with our Gentlemax and LightSheer Duet laser, you can achieve the look you want in a maximum of 7 sessions.

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

The process of laser hair removal is affected by using light technology on the skin to remove unwanted hair from the targeted body area. The laser used during the treatment issues a beam of light that targets the color, or melanin of your hair follicle as well as its growth center. The light wavelength then destroys the follicles and the color without causing damage to the skin tissue surrounding that area.

Why Are Several Sessions Needed?

There is no special number when it comes to knowing how may laser hair removal sessions you will need, it all depends on the person, and their personal hair growth cycle. Hair grows in batches, and the laser targets the follicles of each batch. After each session, those follicles will shed hair for the next several weeks, while others may just be starting their cycle of growth. These new growth follicles will be targeted in the next session. This cyclic growth is the main reason several sessions are needed to complete treatment. Every time you come in for a session, different active follicles are targeted. Once all have been reached, you will be able to live a life of skin that is smooth and free of hair.

Along with removing hair, it reduces the chances of ingrown hair along with many other benefits. The LightSheer Duet is most effective on dark colored hair that is set against lighter skin. The YAG 1064 nm laser is most effective on skin that is tanned or dark, and it’s also paired with a cooling spray for maximum comfort. If you have hair that is light colored or fine we will use the GentleMax Pro.
