How Long Does Laser Hair Removal Take?

Are you sick and tired of shaving, waxing, and plucking unwanted hair? Would you love for that hair to simply stop returning? With laser hair removal, that can be a reality! Millions of people have already discovered the freedom from always worrying about unwanted hair, and you can too! It is a simple treatment that is painless and yields great results. Here at Zormeier Cosmetic Surgery & Longevity Center in Noblesville, IN, we can help! 


How Long Does Laser Hair Removal Take?

Treatment sessions are not long ordeals or something that is going to take up a large chunk of your day. Most sessions will take about 30 minutes to an hour. The amount of time your treatment session will take is going to depend on which area or areas you have chosen to have treated. For example, treating the entire legs is going to take longer than treating the upper lip.

Areas That Can Be Treated

There are a number of areas that can be treated where unwanted hair can be a concern. However, if you do have an additional area where unwanted hair is a bother, let our staff know. They can take a look at that location and let you know whether or not this treatment can be beneficial. 


The Legs 

The legs are probably the most popular treatment area since dealing with unwanted hair in this region can be more time-consuming. If you want to be ready for any occasion at a moment’s notice without any concerns about hair removal, this treatment can help. It can remove unwanted hair from the top of the legs, the bottom of the legs, or the entire leg. 


The Arms

Having unwanted hair on the arms can be an uncomfortable topic because often, people will shave the hair on their arms only to find that it grows back even thicker and more of a concern. With this treatment, unwanted hair can be removed from any part of the arms and stop it from coming back for good.  


The Underarms

The skin under the arms can be sensitive and shaving or waxing sensitive areas often leads to discomfort, visible redness, and irritation. With this treatment, removing hair under the arms won’t have to be a concern again, and that means no more irritation or discomfort!  


The Back

Dealing with unwanted hair on the back can be difficult on your own because of the location. This often causes a person who has unwanted hair on their back to spend time and effort on many waxing appointments that can be painful. This treatment can remove any unwanted hair on the back whether it be on the top of the back, the middle, or the lower back.  


The Bikini Area

If you have unwanted hair on the bikini region, you know how easy it is to cause that sensitive area irritation. With shaving or waxing, this area can become red and irritated, often leading to discomfort. This treatment, however, will remove the unwanted hair in this area to fit your preferences. You can always be ready and confident to hit the pool at a moment’s notice.  


The Upper Lip

Hair on the upper lip is a concern for a lot of people. Waxing and shaving unwanted hair in this area can be painful and can even cause very visible irritation. With this treatment, you never have to book another waxing appointment again. The skin above your upper lip can be free of unwanted hair once and for all.  


Other Areas

Again, if you do have additional locations on your body where unwanted hair is a bother for you, let our staff take a look. They can determine if this treatment can also be helpful in those areas as well. In most cases, when it comes to unwanted hair, this treatment can help!

How It Works 

This treatment does not yank the hair from the root in the way that waxing does nor does it simply remove the hair on the surface like shaving does. It actually uses a highly concentrated laser that heats up the hair follicle itself. When the heat has been applied to the hair follicle for the proper amount of time, it actually kills the follicle.

Once the hair follicle has been heated up enough and been through the correct number of treatment sessions, the hair will stop returning altogether. It does all this without having any effect on the surrounding skin. Again, most people will need more than 1 treatment session before that unwanted hair stops coming back for good. 


Frequently Asked Questions

Below, we will take a closer look at the most frequently asked questions about this treatment option. However, if you do find that you have more questions, feel free to ask our staff! They will always be able to answer any further questions you may have to ensure that you not only are sure that this treatment is for you but that you get the most out of it!


1. Does It Hurt?

No. This is a painless treatment option. The laser that is used completely bypasses the skin around the hair follicle so the treatment will not cause any discomfort or pain.

2. Is It Safe?

Absolutely! This treatment has been tried and proven with many successful treatments over the course of many years. It is also approved by the FDA. There is no need to have any worries about your safety or the safety of your skin when it involves this treatment option.

3. How Many Treatment Sessions Will I Need? 

The number of treatment sessions you will need may be different for you than it is for another person. Those who have thicker, darker hair will likely need more treatment sessions than those who have thinner, lighter-colored hair. For most people, 6 to 10 treatment sessions will stop the hair follicle from coming back altogether.

4. How Do I Get Ready for My Treatment Session?

It is actually a good idea to allow the unwanted hair to grow prior to coming in. This will allow the laser to target the hair while it is in different stages of growth. That will actually help the treatment be even more successful. Besides that, you just have to show up for your treatment session and our professionals will take care of the rest.

5. How Do I Know if It’s Right for Me?

If you are sick of removing unwanted hair from the legs, the underarms, the bikini area, the legs, the back, or another area, this treatment is likely going to be one that can benefit you. If you still have reservations, bring them up during your initial consultation so that our staff can address any further concerns and answer any other questions that you may have.

6. Is There Downtime?

No. As soon as you are done with your treatment session, you can get right back to your daily activities without concern. There are even people who have had treatment while on their lunch hour before heading right back to the office. There is no downtime at all needed as a result of this treatment.

7. Can I Have More Than One Area Treated During the Same Treatment Session?

Of course. This treatment is both gentle and effective enough to treat more than one area during the same session. If you want to have unwanted hair on your legs treated as well as unwanted hair under the arms, both can be done in the same session. A lot of people do actually do this to reach their goals of being free of hair removal for good.

8. What if I Have Really Thick Hair?

Even if you do have thick hair, this treatment can still likely help you. However, it will likely take more sessions to get the unwanted hair to stop returning for good if your hair does fall on the thicker side. During your consultation, our helpful staff may be able to give you a better estimate of how many sessions it will take.
