We all are tired with the unwanted hair on our body. A laser is a permanent process to get rid of the hairs from your body. But how long does laser hair removal take to show results? Such questions frequently get on our mind. Dr. Dhananjay Chavan will help you to understand laser treatments and how effective this treatment to us.
It is a medical procedure. It uses an intense pulsating beam of light emitted by a laser to remove and get rid you of unwanted hair.
The hair on the body can be lasered for unwanted hair, except for the area around the eyes. Common areas such as underarms, bikini line, legs, back, upper lip, chin, etc are also having unwanted hairs. But for results, a series of treatment sessions are required to ensure permanent hair reduction. This is because hair grows in four stages: anagen (growing stage), telogen (transitional), catagen (resting stage), and early anagen (shedding). The laser can act well on the hair that is in the anagen stage. It is because this is when the hair contains abundant melanin, which is essential to absorb the radiation. So a series of LHR treatments is crucial to attack each of the hair follicles present on the treatment area during their growing stage. Usually 6 to 8 sessions required for laser hair removal.
The exact duration of each session varies from person to person. Every individual is different from others. Let’s check the factors for laser treatment.
On an average, larger areas of the body such as the back, chest, shoulders or legs can take half an hour or longer, while smaller areas such as the bikini line, upper lip, chin or the underarms can take as little as five to ten minutes.

As described, the duration and number of treatment sessions are subjective to many variable factors. Your physician will also guide you before and aftercare routine after treatment. Clearskin and HairMD Clinic provide treatment, customized to each individual. It is always under the guidance and supervision of a board-certified dermatologist.
