How Many Laser Hair Removal Sessions Will I Need?

Laser hair removal can manage excess hair in difficult-to-treat areas such as the arms, legs, chest, armpits, and bikini line. It works by targeting specific hair follicles to prevent future growth. So, how many appointments are needed to achieve results from laser treatment?

The answer depends on the size and location of the area and how much hair is present. Fine Arts Skin & Laser uses top technologies like the Soprano® ICE Platinum to deliver the best outcomes possible.

Our certified medical providers can provide guidance and information about the process during a consultation. Call today to schedule your first laser hair removal session in Dover, OH.

Why choose laser hair removal?

Shaving and plucking are time-consuming and temporary methods of hair removal. They often leave behind irritating razor bumps or ingrown hairs. Waxing is another well-known option, but it can be just as temporary as shaving and comes with side effects like redness and swelling that cause discomfort.

Instead, laser hair removal targets each hair follicle with a focused beam of light. Follicles can no longer produce hair once they absorb this energy. The result is smoother, softer skin that lasts for months or even years at a time.

Benefits of laser hair removal in Dover, OH include:

  • Precision: Laser technology targets areas with precision while leaving the surrounding tissue unaffected.
  • Safety: Laser treatment is generally safe and comes with minimal risks and side effects.
  • Convenience: You can enjoy long-lasting results, meaning there is no need for regular maintenance appointments.

What do you use for laser treatment?

Fine Arts Skin & Laser uses the top-of-the-line Soprano ICE Platinum laser system, which features multi-wavelength technology and an internal cooling system for improved results. It is FDA-cleared for many skin types and can be used on large areas like the legs and back as well as small, delicate places such as the bikini line.

How many laser sessions do I need?

Hair goes through stages of growth, and each stage responds best to laser treatment at different times. This is why multiple sessions are necessary to target all the follicles in a particular area.

The number of sessions needed for laser hair removal varies among patients and is dependent on the size of the area and the thickness of the excess hair. Most patients achieve results after six sessions spaced 4 – 8 weeks apart. Our Certified Medical Providers can provide a more accurate estimate in our office during an assessment. After these treatments are completed, you may only need annual touch-up sessions to maintain them.

What happens during laser hair removal

Laser hair removal is generally a comfortable procedure with little to no discomfort. However, some patients experience a slight snapping sensation similar to that of a rubber band as we guide the laser handpiece over the treatment area. We can provide information about recovery and how to make the process as seamless as possible.
