You lead a busy life and may not have time to remove unwanted hair via razors, wax, or bleaching. That’s where laser hair removal comes in. With laser hair removal, you can get rid of wanted hair in virtually any area of your body for good. If you’re interested in laser hair removal, you may be wondering how many treatments you’ll need. Let’s take a closer look at the answer to this question.
How Laser Hair Removal Works
Laser hair removal uses highly concentrated light energy to destroy the hair follicles without damaging the surrounding skin. After each laser hair removal treatment, you can enjoy a 15 to 30% reduction in hair loss. You can opt for laser hair removal treatments to remove hair from your legs, arms, face, chest, back, and bikini. After you’ve received your recommended treatments, you’ll be left with a drastic reduction in hair. You’ll be able to put the days of waxing, shaving, and/or bleaching behind you.
The Recommended Number of Laser Hair Removal Treatments
Since every patient is unique, there is not one hard answer to “how many laser hair removal treatments are necessary?” However, the majority of patients enjoy desirable results after six to eight treatments. Our expert providers recommend that laser hair removal patients space out their treatments at least eight week apart. Doing so can allow the hair to go into a new cycle.
Your hair type as well as the location of your hair removal will dictate how many treatments you may need. If you are targeting the hair on your legs, you’ll likely need less treatments than someone who is targeting facial hair.

Good Candidates for Laser Hair Removal
Men and women who are bothered by unwanted hair and searching for an alternative to waxing, shaving, bleaching, and other hair removal treatments are the ideal candidates for laser hair removal. Laser hair removal is not recommended for patients with light blond, grey, or silver hair or those with diabetes or hair growth that’s caused by high levels of testosterone. Pregnant and breastfeeding women should avoid laser hair removal as well.
