Laser Hair Removal is particularly suited to the armpit area. That’s because it eliminates three problems commonly associated with temporary hair reduction methods for arms:

  • Skin Sensitivity — The skin on the underarms is particularly sensitive. That’s why it’s prone to red rashes, razor bumps and ingrown hair that occur in the aftermath of shaving or creams. 
  • The Shadow EffectThe proverbial five o’clock shadow isn’t exclusive to the face. For most people, the hair follicle remains visible on the surface of the skin of the armpits even after shaving. 
  • The Stubble EffectAnd, of course, temporary solutions mean that coarse, dark hair will grow back in. As a result, unsightly stubble appears without regular upkeep.

Temorary fixes, like waxing, shaving or depilatories, get rid of unwanted hair only at the surface level of the skin. On the other hand, the laser device goes underneath the skin to reach the hair follicle at its source. By destroying the hair follicle, the underarm hair either grows back softer and less coarse, or doesn’t grow back at all. Bottom line: no razor bumps, no shadow, no maintenance.

The procedure is actually quite simple. It can take anywhere from a few minutes to an hour, depending on the treatment area. A skincare professional will apply a numbing cream to the armpit. Then, she will pass a handheld laser device over the treatment area to target thousands of hairs at the follicle. The sensation is usually described as like a light snap of a rubber band. 

Permanent armpit hair removal is possible with a series of sessions. Hair typically grows in 4-6 weeks cycles, depending on the part of the body. During each session, Laser Hair Removal will get about 80% of this actively growing hair. Therefore, it usually takes 5-8 treatments to effectively treat one area. We recommend that you return every 4-6 weeks to target new active growth. Additional sessions may be needed after that. By adhering to scheduled treatments, you can achieve a permanent underarm hair removal solution.
