How Long Does Laser Hair Removal Take
in San Diego at Prime Med Spa?

If keeping up with unwanted body hair feels like a constant effort, you’re absolutely right – it is! A recent survey found that women spend an average of 72 days shaving their legs over the course of a lifetime. That’s 1,728 hours of fighting stubble, battling ingrown hairs, and inevitably missing a patch that you later notice at the beach. And, that’s not even counting the time it takes to maintain your bikini line and touch up your underarm hair. Are you exhausted yet?

If you’re tired of shaving and waxing to maintain silky smooth legs and underarms, you’ve probably considered laser hair removal to take care of unwanted hair for good. Before you sign up for laser treatments, it’s important to understand how long the process takes and what types of results you can expect. Brush up on laser hair removal with our quick overview.

Remove unwanted hair with laser hair removal

How does laser hair removal work?

Laser hair removal works by using intense pulsed light to target the dark pigment in unwanted body hair. The light is absorbed by the pigment, which damages the follicle and prevents future growth. The hair growth cycle has three phases: growing, resting, and shedding. Laser hair removal targets hair in the growth phase and the targeted hair falls out within 10 to 14 days after treatment.

Where can I get laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is effective virtually anywhere you have unwanted body hair. The most popular areas for ladies are the legs, stomach, arms, face, chin, underarms, and bikini area. For men, we most commonly get requests for laser treatments to keep a clean neckline, chest, back, and arms—and to reduce pubic hair as well.

How long does laser hair removal take?

A laser hair removal session can take anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour, depending on the area being treated. Multiple sessions, typically between four and six, are required to see a 70 to 80 percent reduction in hair growth. Sessions are scheduled four weeks apart to make sure we target all of the hair follicles during the growth phase. Many of our clients see a dramatic difference after their first treatment, though it typically takes about six months to achieve the best results. We also recommend a touchup treatment once a year for the first couple of years.
