Laser Hair Removal Results

Laser hair removal is one of the most permanent methods available for removing unwanted body hair.

But before you commit to a course of treatments, it’s important to know what you can expect from the process.

Depending on your skin and hair color, you’ll likely see some regrowth of unwanted hair following treatment. But it will be much thinner and finer than before, and easier to remove in the future.

Hair Color & Skin Type

Laser hair removal results vary, depending on a number of factors. For instance, hair color and skin type determine whether the light can penetrate to hair follicles.

It typically takes several treatment sessions to achieve complete hair reduction. The amount of time it takes depends on your body’s natural hair growth cycle and the thickness of the hair.

Undergo Treatment

Patients who undergo treatment typically see an average 10 to 25% reduction in hair after the first session. A consultation with your medical provider will help you understand how many sessions are needed to get the desired results.

Before your first Blissfusion laser hair removal treatment, you’ll want to avoid plucking, waxing, and electrolysis for at least six weeks. You should also avoid sun tanning or topical sun tan products before your appointment, as these can affect the pigmentation of the area being treated.

Short-Term Results

Unwanted hair can be a bothersome and time-consuming problem. If you’ve tried waxing, shaving or plucking, laser hair removal can give you long-term results without any of the hassle.

Depending on your skin and hair color, you might see results within one or two treatments. For most people, four to six sessions are needed to achieve permanent reduction.

New Hair Growth

After a series of treatments, hair follicles grow back much smaller and lighter than before. In fact, you may not notice any new hair growth for a few years.

However, it is important to note that the treatment can cause some side effects, including redness and irritation of the skin. If these side effects last more than a few days, you should contact your provider.

Long-Term Results

Laser hair removal is an effective method of delaying the growth of unwanted body hair for months or years. It doesn’t always result in permanent hair removal, but you should be able to see long-term results after multiple treatments.

During the treatment, a handheld device delivers pulses of highly focused light directly to the base of the hair follicle, targeting and damaging pigmentation in the follicle while leaving surrounding skin completely unharmed. The resulting thermal damage to the hair follicle destroys it, preventing new growth.

Sunlight or Indoor Tanning Equipment

After the treatment, the treated area may be red and swollen. This usually looks and feels like a sunburn and can be painful, so you should avoid direct sunlight or indoor tanning equipment on the treated area.

A series of follow-up treatments are typically scheduled 4-6 weeks apart to optimize results as the hair enters its resting phase and re-grows from its growing stage.

Full Course of Laser Hair Removal Treatments

After you’ve completed a full course of laser hair removal treatments, you can expect to be free of excess body hair for months or years. However, it’s important to know that you’ll need maintenance sessions in order to keep the area hair-free for as long as possible.

You may also experience regrowth of a few hairs that didn’t enter the growth cycle during your first treatment series. This can happen in areas where hair is particularly coarse, such as the underarms or bikini line.

Pain-Free Treatment

For women and men who are tired of shaving, plucking, and waxing unwanted body hair, laser hair removal is a great option. It’s a non-invasive, pain-free treatment that destroys the root of the problem and is permanent.

Immediately after your first laser treatment, the treated area may be red and swollen, but this should disappear in four to five days. During this time, you can use a cold compress on the skin to soothe the redness and swelling.

After your second and third treatments, you should expect to see a reduction of about 10% to 25% in the amount of hair on your targeted treatment areas. Your results will vary, depending on your specific hair color and thickness.

When Will I See Laser Hair Removal Results?

Your results from laser hair removal will depend on your skin tone, hair color and the specific laser that we use. You will most likely need multiple sessions spaced about four to eight weeks apart for optimal results.

Your skin tone does influence the success of laser hair removal, since dark-haired people are more prone to discoloration after a laser treatment. However, it is not necessary to have dark hair or skin to achieve optimal results. Patients with tan, white or gray hair can still have excellent results with laser treatment.


Your practitioner will make an individual assessment about the level of regrowth you may experience and recommend maintenance top-ups as necessary. This is based on your individual skin and hair type, hormonal factors and age.
