The Benefits Of Underarm Laser Hair Removal

For most, the reason for underarm laser hair removal may simply come down to looks. Removing unwanted underarm hair can help you achieve a certain look or avoid feeling less than your best. However, that’s not the only reason why underarm laser hair removal is popular.

Other practical benefits of underarm hair removal include:

  • No more ingrown hairs 
  • Less sweating overall
  • Less body odor 

If you already suffer from excessive sweating, then removing your underarm hair can be a great way to lessen its effects. Underarm laser hair removal has great functional and aesthetic benefits that make it well worth the cost. 

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

Laser hair removal uses the wonder of laser technology to remove hair at the root. Unlike shaving, which can only affect hair above the surface of the skin, our laser technology targets the follicles at the root of the hair. 

Specifically, our laser technology is calibrated to target the specific pigmentation of the hair follicles in contrast to the skin around them. This damages the hair follicles while leaving surrounding tissue unharmed. Damaging hair follicles inhibits future hair growth, which means smooth skin without dealing with the hassle (and sometimes pain!) of shaving.

Our Underarm Laser Hair Removal Process

Our process for underarm laser hair removal is simple and straightforward. The night before treatment, we ask that patients closely shave or snip the desired area so our team can target the hair follicles. 

It is vitally important that you do not tweeze, wax, or use depilatory at least one month before each session. This is because these can remove the hair follicles, which then means our laser technology has nothing to target. Instead, new follicles and hair will eventually take their place. 

How Long Until I See Results?

Most clients end up seeing results after just the first treatment! Anywhere from 1 to 3 weeks after your treatment, you will likely begin to see hair falling out of the treated area. Noticeable improvement can be seen relatively quickly, but you will need multiple treatments to get the full benefits of laser hair removal. 

As stated earlier, the full laser hair removal process takes several months, depending on several factors. Treatments have to be spaced out based on the hair growth cycle of the area being treated. In the case of underarms, you can expect 6-8 weeks between treatments. 

Potential Side Effects of Laser Hair Removal

Underarm laser hair removal has virtually no downtime, meaning you can immediately return to your normal routine after treatment. However, there may be some mild, temporary side effects after a session. You may experience the following side effects after treatment:

  • Redness/Irritation
  • Pain
  • Blistering
  • Swelling

After treatment, our team can recommend ways to address any unwanted side effects like certain creams. However, these side effects typically dissipate within a few hours or days, if they appear at all.
