Why Does Laser Hair Removal Require Multiple Sessions?

Laser Hair Removal Require Multiple SessionsNo one likes unwanted body hair and with laser hair removal from Ava Laser Clinic, you now have a way to get rid of your razor, wax, or tweezers forever! Unlike other methods, laser hair removal offers a semi-permanent way to have smooth, hair-free skin all year round.

How Permanent Laser Hair Removal Works

Hair removal via laser is accomplished by using a beam of focused light to target the melanin in the skin that is situated at the base portion of the hair. The energy in the laser will find the follicle causing it to fall out permanently about a week or two following your session. This method is highly effective on individuals that have dark hair follicles and lighter skin tones, but there are lasers that are made to work equally well with lighter hair or darker skin tones.

Hair Growth Cycles

All hair follows a basic three-part growth cycle: your active phase, transitional phase, and the resting phase. Your individual hair follicles all follow their own schedule, which is why several sessions are needed to ensure that you are totally hair-free by the end of your treatment plan.

How Many Sessions Will I Need?

Each patient is unique as is their treatment plan, so it isn’t possible to say how many sessions with Ava Laser Clinic will be needed without an in-person evaluation. In most cases, total hair removal can be achieved within 6-12 sessions,but the total number depends on a number of factors.

Laser treatment for hair removal only works on hair follicles that are in the phase of active growth. Since not all follicles are active at the same time, repeated sessions are required to catch all follicles in their respective active stages.

In addition, where your hair is located also determines the average length of each hair cycle. For example, facial hair has a shorter growth cycle than the hair on your head, while the hair on your legs may have a longer cycle than hair under your arms.

The thickness of the hair in the area to be treated may require more sessions than others, and in some cases, there are follicles that may have been dormant for years that become active due to the treatment itself.
