How many laser hair removal treatments for legs do you need?

As Laser Hair Removal Spa, Infinity Laser Spa gets a lot of questions regarding laser hair removal and today we are answering one of them.

First, you have to understand that laser hair removal is actually a hair reduction procedure.  Whoever tells you that they got rid of hair completely on a particular area after just one session either lying or have a genetic anomaly. Each laser hair removal (a.k.a. hair reduction) session gets rid of only 12%-20% of hair follicles on the treated area. Therefore, with a help of simple math, you can calculate that for maximum results it can take from 5-8 sessions on average.

However, it is more complicated than that. There is a big range of factors influencing the efficiency of laser hair removal treatments, including laser hair removal treatments for legs. Just to name a few:

  • your skin tone
  • your hair color on a treated area and how much it is in contrast with your skin tone (the darker the hair / lighter the skin the more effective the laser treatment)
  • type of hormonal medication you are taking
  • your sensitivity to heat and pain resistance
  • your genetics
  • how often do you shave in between treatments


So I did 8 sessions and I am still having my leg hair here and there. Should I just give up?

You should start seeing results after first session or two. If you don’t see any change in a hair reduction, notify your laser technician and discuss the ways how you both can improve the effectiveness of the procedure. If you had 8 sessions and were satisfied with the results in general, it is normal  when you have to come back either for touch-ups or take one-two extra laser hair removal session. No one can guarantee results within a specific amount of sessions with 100% guarantee. Follow the recommendations and be patient.
