Laser Hair Removal Areas

Laser hair removal is an excellent solution for people who are tired of shaving, plucking, or waxing unwanted hair. The cosmetic practitioner uses a laser device that emits a focused stream of light. The light and heat from the laser damage hair follicles, delaying or preventing hair growth.

Traditional lasers target melanin (the color pigment) and need clear contrast between the skin and hair colors. Because of this, they achieve the best results in people with light skin and dark hair. However, many modern lasers use a different technology that works for other skin types and colors, even removing light, thin hair.

Patients interested in laser hair removal usually want to know which areas can be treated. This article lists treatable areas and explains how many sessions are required for long-term or permanent hair removal.

How Many Sessions for Laser Hair Removal Do You Need?

The hair growth cycle has three phases: growing, regressing, and resting. Laser hair removal is effective only when the hair is in the growing phase. Since the hairs are always at different stages, patients need multiple treatments to ensure the laser reaches all hair at the right time.

Cosmetic providers usually recommend an initial plan of six to ten treatments spaced six weeks apart and maintenance treatments twice a year until the hairs in the treated area stop growing. The total number of required sessions varies from patient to patient, depending on their skin type, hair color, and the treatment area.

The Vibrant Skin Bar offers laser hair removal services at different prices, depending on the size of the treatment area. For large areas, one treatment costs $350. Laser for medium areas is priced at $250, and treatments for small areas cost $150.
