If you’re thinking about getting laser hair removal, but you’re wondering how many sessions you will need before you start seeing results, look no further than this blog post! In this article, we’ll be shedding some light on how many treatments you will actually need before you start noticing the effects of our laser, and we’ll also cover a few other things you should know before you get started with the treatment process.

Laser hair removal is a treatment that is becoming increasingly popular across our NYLC clinic locations – and not only because we are offering amazing discounts. Clients in their thousands have seen exceptional results thanks to our medical-grade, gold standard Candela laser! There’s no time like the present to get started and see smoother, hair-free skin in time for summer.

How many sessions of laser hair removal do you need?

Contrary to what some may assume, laser hair removal cannot be done effectively in one singular session. The main reason for this is because our hair follicles grow at different rates, and so the ones affected by the laser in the first treatment will not be the same as those that grow back throughout the following weeks. Since we have so many small hair follicles, we usually recommend a course of between 3 and 8 treatment sessions to our clients so that we can ensure the best results.

Of course, there are some variables to consider that may affect how many treatments we recommend to you. All of our aestheticians administering the laser treatment are highly trained and they will be able to advise whether or not the laser will be particularly effective (or less so) depending on your skin and hair type. This can all be discussed during your initial consultation.

How do I decide how many sessions I need?

It is completely your decision how many laser treatments you have, and you can always change your mind once you have completed a course of treatments. Our specialists will be able to recommend a set number of treatments for you, but you may decide to choose more depending on your circumstances (and the discounts we have available!). In general, we recommend starting with 6 or 8 treatments so that you see the full effect of the laser, and following this you can have an additional session, or several, depending on how you are finding your hair regrowth.

No matter how many treatments you choose to start off with, you can always rest assured that they are safe for your skin. Before you come to the clinic for your first full session, we will administer a patch test which will let us know how your skin reacts to the laser. The machine has a variety of different settings which we will adjust each time you come in for your laser treatments, and we will always patch test before moving onto a higher setting.

Things to know before your first session at NYLC

While laser hair removal is highly effective, it is unfortunately not the quickest treatment in the world! The sessions themselves only last a matter of minutes, however we always recommend that our clients wait at least 6 weeks between each individual treatment. This is to allow for new hair follicles to come through and ultimately to provide the best results for you. Because of this, the full process of 8 separate treatments can take several months – however we can assure you it’ll be worth it!

If you’re thinking about starting a course of laser hair removal treatments at NYLC, we hope this post has given you a better idea of how many sessions of laser hair removal you need, and why. If you have any further questions, our doors are always open, or you can make an appointment here for an initial consultation.
