Common Body Areas and quick facts associated with Laser Hair Removal Treatments

Hair removal treatments can be done anywhere on the body and laser is no exception. Laser Hair Removal is becoming more and more popular for males and females. Typically, it may take anywhere from 4-5 sessions about 6 weeks apart for the treatment to fully work.

For women
The most common body areas for treatment of women include legs, underarms, arms, face, upper lip and pubic area. 6 – 8 treatments usually result in a 75% – 95% permanent hair loss.

For men
The most common areas are stomach, back and sideburns.
Laser hair removal is the most effective when hair is actively growing. This is why it’s important to refrain from plucking, tweezing or waxing, weeks before the procedure. Apart from a mild burning sensation or warmth in the area treated there are no known side effects. Patients are, however, advised to avoid sunlight, tan beds, chlorine and saltwater because these can cause redness and skin irritation.

Cost of a laser hair removal treatment
The cost of a laser hair removal treatment depends on a number of factors – size of the area that’s being treated, time and number of treatments. It is recommended that you consult with a professional to determine if you’re a good candidate for laser hair removal.

Results can be long-lasting and even permanent, so this is worth considering if plucking or tweeting hairs has become a chore. The procedure is safe and causes minimal discomfort. It doesn’t matter what your skin tone or hair colour is as the laser gets adjusted according to these factors. Typically, legs and backs take 60 to 90 minutes to get treated, while an upper lip or the tops of the ears may require just 10 minutes. The front of the neck or underarm can take up to 20 minutes.
