How Many Laser Hair Removal Treatments Will I Need?

Hair – you might like thick locks on your head, but unwanted hair in other places can be annoying and embarrassing.

Armpits. Bikini line. Legs. Upper lip. These are some of the most common places people seek to remove hair. Though shaving is time-consuming and waxing is expensive, both of these hair removal methods share something in common – their results don’t last long.

Shantique Med Spa, provides laser hair removal to patients in Torrance, California, to provide a long-term solution for hair-free skin. Here we explain everything you need to know, including how many treatments you need.

Get touchable skin 24/7

Roughly 58% of women turn to shaving as their preferred hair removal method. But there’s nothing more aggravating than spending 30 minutes shaving only to find stubble that’s grown back hours later. Do you dream of wearing a sundress without the hassle of shaving? 

Laser hair removal is a minimally invasive way to get smooth, touchable skin with results that last for years. At Shantique Med Spa, we use the cutting-edge Forever Bare Broadband Light™ to remove pesky hair from places like:

When you come in for your appointment, your technician uses a handheld device to send multi-frequencies of light deep into your skin, gently compromising the hair follicle while leaving your skin unharmed. The treatment is safe and pain-free, making it a great option even for those with a low pain tolerance.

How many treatments do I need?

People around the world are turning to laser hair removal to get rid of unwanted hair. Nearly 457,000 treatments were performed in 2019, making it one of the top cosmetic treatments in the world. 

If you’re interested in getting the procedure done, you’re probably wondering, How many treatments do I need? Most patients need three to six treatments to get the results they’re seeking. 

Results differ from person-to-person depending on factors like skin color, hair texture, and hormones. Appointments must be scheduled about a month apart and take up to an hour depending on the treatment area.

Remove up to 25% hair in each session

Patients who undergo laser hair removal love seeing their progress – up to 25% of hair is removed in a single session. The treatment can be safely used on a variety of different hair colors, textures, and skin colors. 


No downtime is associated with laser hair removal. You may experience redness and mild discomfort after your appointment. However, you can easily hide the redness with makeup while discomfort may be alleviated with over-the-counter pain relievers.

Beautiful, long-lasting results

Did you know that the average woman spends 72 days of her life shaving? Yes, you heard right! That’s a lot of time to spend doing something that doesn’t provide long-lasting results.

One of the best parts of laser hair removal is that it provides results that can keep you hair-free for years. Most patients find that they need maintenance sessions yearly to keep the hair at bay. When the hair does grow back, it’s much less noticeable because it's lighter, thinner, and sparser.
