How Soon Can Results Be Seen Following Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal is a popular and permanent method of hair removal. With laser hair removal, you can say goodbye to unwanted hair growth virtually anywhere on the body, from the arms to the legs to the face and bikini line. 

In laser hair removal, the light energy from the laser targets the pigment of the unwanted hair. The pigment absorbs the light energy, which converts into heat, destroys the hair follicles, and inhibits future hair growth. With this process, unwanted hair is kept away for longer than with other hair removal methods, such as shaving, tweezing, and waxing.

One question that we often receive about laser hair removal is when you can expect to see results. Read on to learn the answer to this common inquiry!

Results From Laser Hair Removal

Generally, laser hair removal is performed in multiple sessions. For most patients, six to eight sessions will target all of the hairs in the treatment area during the anagen growth phase. The treatments should typically be separated by four to six weeks. Once all of the sessions are completed, the results will be permanent, so you’ll no longer have to worry about the unwanted hair growth in the targeted area. 

That said, people typically notice some results from laser hair removal just a week or two after the first treatment. These results will continue to improve with each treatment session. When you start to see results, you’ll notice that the targeted hair is beginning to fall out. Some hair may regrow, but it will grow back at a slower rate. 

The best results from laser hair removal are usually seen around four weeks after the last treatment session. At this point, all of the targeted hair will have fallen out and it won’t be able to regrow.
