How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

Whether you shave, pluck, or wax, one thing is clear: You’re tired of the constant upkeep that’s involved with hair removal.

Sound familiar? Then it may be time to discover the time-saving, skin-smoothing powers of laser hair removal. This popular treatment uses laser heat energy to target unwanted hair follicles, eventually leaving behind silky-smooth, hair-free skin. Now is the perfect time to start laser hair removal and get ready for a smooth shave-free summer! 

But exactly how does laser hair removal work? And how many treatments will you need to see results?

Let’s take a look!

How Laser Hair Removal Works

Laser hair removal works by emitting different wavelengths of laser energy to the targeted treatment area. These laser wavelengths are designed to target darker hair follicles; once the wavelengths are emitted, the hair follicles absorb their energy. Over the course of the treatment, this absorption process causes the follicles to become so overheated that they fall out. 

Once the hair follicles fall out, they do grow back – but at a much slower rate. Eventually, hair regrowth slows down so much that it takes months – even years – before hair returns.

How Many Laser Hair Removal Treatments Will I Need?

Successful laser hair removal relies on multiple treatments, as hair regrowth doesn’t significantly slow down after the first or even second treatment. In fact, most people need about six laser hair removal treatments to see their ideal results.

When Will I See Results?

Most people typically start seeing results after the third or fourth laser hair removal treatment; ideal results are usually achieved after six treatments. 

Laser hair removal results vary and will depend on a number of factors, like:

  • The size of the area being treated
  • The coarseness of targeted hair
  • How well your body responds to laser hair removal treatments
  • Your skin tone
  • And more

It typically takes approximately six months for patients to achieve their final results.
