Can Laser Hair Removal Under My Arms Reduce Sweat?

Can Laser Hair Removal Under My Arms Reduce Sweat?

Armpit hair – even the thought of it can make you cringe. Not only is it unsightly, but it can also trap odor-causing bacteria, leading to an unpleasant smell. If you’re like most people, you probably want absolutely nothing to do with body odor or armpit hair.

Laser hair removal is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments to get rid of pesky underarm hair with 757,808 treatments performed in 2020. Although you probably knew that laser hair removal can eliminate armpit hair, did you know that it reduces body odor and helps you sweat less?

Shantique Med Spa, located in Torrance, California, provides laser hair removal to eliminate unwanted hair and sweat, so you can be confident 24/7.

Permanent, affordable hair removal

Did you know that, on average, women spend 72 days of their lives shaving? And what’s worse, the average woman spends more than $10,000 on shaving products. 

Laser hair removal is the go-to solution for people looking to bring time and money back into their daily routines. Our highly skilled laser technicians use targeted light energy to remove unwanted hair in 60 minutes or less. By administering concentrated light in hair follicles, the pigment in your hair absorbs the light and safely destroys unwanted hair. 

Laser hair removal can be used to remove hair in places like:

Laser hair removal provides beautiful, long-lasting results. To get the best out of your treatment, Shahinaz Soliman, MD suggests a series of three to six treatments spaced six to eight weeks apart.

Reduce sweat & odor-causing bacteria

You might be surprised to learn that sweat itself doesn’t have an odor. Bacteria that’s combined with a mixture of bacteria and sweat can give off an unpleasant smell. Armpits provide a warm and rich environment for bacteria to thrive, and when hair is present, it traps odor-causing bacteria. 

Laser hair removal eliminates up to 25% of hair in a single session, which also leads to noticeably less sweat and odor-causing bacteria. You’ll feel more confident wearing tank tops at all hours of the day while having dry, smooth, and fresh underarms.

Does it hurt?

If you like the sounds of laser hair removal, you might be wondering if it hurts. Though it isn’t completely painless, most of our patients tolerate it well and describe the feeling as being similar to a rubber band snapping on your skin. 

Small treatment areas take only about 15 minutes for one session, but large areas, like the legs, take around an hour. Our patients report laser hair removal to be more comfortable than waxing and tweezing. 

The best part? Your results last two to six years! Once you start to notice hair growth again, just come in for a maintenance session to keep your hair at bay, so you have smooth, touchable skin again. Easy, peasy, lemon squeezy!

Start your laser hair removal treatment today, and be hair-free by summer. Call us at 310-530-7244 to schedule your consultation, or book online.
