There are many methods for getting rid of unwanted arm and underarm hair, but almost all have drawbacks: waxing is incredibly painful, shaving is inconvenient and has to be done frequently, and various creams on the market rarely work as promised. Laser hair removal is the only solution that offers permanent elimination of unwanted hair with few drawbacks, giving you smooth, soft, stubble-free arms and underarms.

How does underarm laser hair removal work?

Laser hair removal is mostly painless and offers dramatic results, thanks to the unique technology involved. The key to laser hair removal is targeting hair when it’s in the growth stage, and not the transition or resting stages. During the procedure, specialized laser equipment emits pulses of light energy deep into the skin, destroying the hair follicle at the root so the surface hair comes out completely. Once the pores close up, the destroyed follicles will no longer grow hair, leaving your skin smooth and soft. However, because all your hair follicles are in different phases of the growth cycle at any given time, multiple sessions will be needed to catch all the follicles in their growth stage.

What are the benefits of underarm laser hair removal?

The main benefit of underarm laser hair removal is the aesthetic—your arms or underarms will be completely smooth and stubble-free, allowing you to wear sleeveless clothes with confidence. There are also other benefits, including:

  • More free time: All the time you spend shaving your arms or underarms really adds up, and laser hair removal will mean less time spent preparing for the day.
  • Less worries: If you’ve ever left the house in a tank top and realized too late that you forgot to shave, you won’t have to worry again after laser hair removal.
  • No more razor burn, ingrown hairs, or underarm cysts: The skin under the arms is very sensitive and prone to razor burn, ingrown hairs and underarm cysts with daily shaving, which won’t be a concern with laser hair removal.
  • Elimination of odor problems: Armpit hair traps moisture (sweat) and odor, so the smoother and cleaner your underarms are, the less likely you are to have odor problems in your pits.

 

How long does underarm laser hair removal take?

Underarm laser hair removal is a relatively quick process. Each session takes about 5 to 10 minutes. Many patients compare the sensation to a rubber band lightly snapping against the skin. After the session, you might experience some skin irritation and mild redness or swelling, but that usually disappears in a few hours and you can treat any discomfort with an ice pack.

 

How many laser hair removal treatments are needed for underarms?

Because hair grows in different cycles, you will need about six to eight treatments to allow each follicle to be targeted in the right stage of growth. Also, you’ll need to wait a few weeks in between treatments to allow the area to fully heal. It’s important to remember that targeted hairs will shed naturally within a few days or weeks of each session, so don’t be disappointed if you don’t see immediate, dramatic results?it will all be worth it when you complete the sessions and never have to shave again.

 

How should I prepare for laser hair removal underarm?

You don’t want to overtan the skin on your arms or underarms, so it’s a good idea to avoid sun exposure (and tanning beds) for a week or so before your first treatments. You should also avoid sun exposure on the treatment area for a few weeks afterward. For the first 48 hours after the procedure, wear loose cotton clothing and avoid pools, hot tubs, steam rooms, and strenuous exercise. In between sessions, it’s a good idea to regularly exfoliate your skin so it’s in the best possible condition for the next laser removal procedure.
