Like many other cosmetic treatments and procedures available today, laser hair removal does not provide immediate results. With this in mind, it is important that patients plan their treatment schedule accordingly, particularly if they have a target end date in mind. If you’re like many patients, you may be considering laser hair removal with the goal of having smoother skin by summer. At Cameron Wellness and Spa in Salt Lake City, UT, our laser professionals will recommend the most appropriate laser hair removal schedule for you to ensure you complete your treatment in plenty of time to enjoy smooth, soft, silky skin just in time for shorts season. Keep reading for more information on the best timing for laser hair removal, how many treatments you may need, and when you can expect to enjoy your final results.


Where can you get laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal can safely and effectively be performed virtually anywhere on the body, with a few exceptions. Most commonly, patients seek laser hair removal to reduce unwanted hair growth in one or more of the following areas:


  • Face
  • Underarms
  • Arms
  • Chest
  • Back
  • Buttocks
  • Legs
  • Bikini area/pubic area


How does laser hair removal work?

At Cameron Wellness and Spa, our expert team is dedicated to using the most current and effective technologies possible and is proud to perform laser hair removal with the cutting-edge Harmony XL PRO laser. Prior to treatment, the skin will be cleansed to remove any makeup, deodorant, oil, and debris. Specialized protective eyewear will be worn by both the patient and the laser technician throughout the treatment. The laser handpiece will be passed over the skin, delivering pulses of laser energy that target and destroy hair follicles beneath the skin’s surface. If needed, a numbing cream can be applied prior to treatment to minimize any discomfort the patient may experience, though most patients tolerate the treatment well without a topical anesthetic.


What is the best time of the year to get laser hair removal?

Patients should expect to undergo between 4-6 treatment sessions at 6-8 week intervals. This means that it will take several months for patients to complete a full round of laser hair removal. Because of this, patients hoping for smoother skin by the summer season should plan to begin treatment in the fall or winter. Not only does this allow plenty of time to complete a full round of treatment, but it is also conducive to reducing sun and heat exposure after laser hair removal, both of which can cause



hyperpigmentation and other unwanted side effects.


With that said, laser hair removal is still a safe and effective treatment year-round, and the majority of patients experience a noticeable reduction in hair growth after just one or two treatments, meaning it is never too late to start preparing your summer skin.


Is laser hair removal permanent?

Patients considering laser hair removal should keep in mind that, while the treatment can certainly provide dramatic and enduring results, it should not be considered a complete – nor a permanent – solution for hair removal. In some cases, patients may have stubborn hair follicles that continue to grow despite a full round of treatment. When this occurs, however, the growth is usually much finer, thinner, and more sparse than it was previously and can often be effectively treated with a touch-up or maintenance treatment.


When performed properly by a skilled provider laser hair removal can give patients smoother skin that can be enjoyed for years to come.llk
