Laser hair removal is the state-of-the-art way to get rid of unwanted body hair, and there may be no hair on the body that is more hated than armpit hair. Some women shave every day in the shower and still have to deal with quick-growing dark stubble. Is that how you feel? Then laser removal treatments may be the best option for you.

The one question that our clients often want to know is how many treatments are needed in order to keep armpit hair from coming back. While the answer varies from person to person, three to five treatments is a good ballpark figure.

Inclusive Laser Hair Removal Treatments

Laser hair removal treatments work on every skin type. Men and women alike can benefit. Your race or hair texture also does not matter. The big concern for most people is that laser hair removal is only for the extremely wealthy, but thanks to NY Face Place, that’s not true anymore either. In fact, you can get huge savings when you purchase 6 sessions in a package.

Why Does It Take More than One Treatment?

That’s a good question, and it has to do with the way hair grows naturally. Sometimes hairs are in a growth phase and other times they are in a resting phase. The resting hairs don’t respond to the laser the same way, so performing several treatments with a period of time in between is the best way to get them all, but you should see a difference with a week or so. The main reason for spacing out visits is to catch ear hair in different growth phases.

Some patients are also concerned because they heard that the treatments hurt. Laser hair removal certainly doesn’t hurt as much as waxing. There are also ways of minimizing the discomfort. The state of the art laser used at NY Face Place first emits a pulse of cooling spray to protect the skin and then immediately follows with a pulse of laser light. The cooling spray greatly minimizes discomfort from the laser pulse. Laser hair removal should involve little to no discomfort or recovery time.
