Underarm Laser Hair Removal 

Underarm hair is one of the most visible types of body hair, especially in the warmer months when you’re wearing short or sleeveless clothing. Shaving can be frustrating, as just a couple of days later, you may have noticeable regrowth! Thankfully, there’s another way. Say goodbye to irritation and regrowth by seeking out underarm laser hair removal in Chicago, IL.

 Is Underarm Laser Hair Removal Worth It?

Thousands of women, particularly those with darker hair and relatively fairer complexions, will answer with an emphatic YES. Constant coverage by your arms and often tight clothing makes your underarms prone to developing ingrown hairs and chafing after shaving. On the other hand, as the skin and hair are less exposed to the sun, a tan or natural sun bleaching won’t cover up underarm hair. 

During treatments, concentrated beams of light are absorbed by pigments in your body hair. These overheat and destroy the hair shaft and follicles without damaging your skin. While some hair follicles are completely removed, others may come back finer and shorter. Either way, you can enjoy less chafing and a lower-maintenance look. 

How to Prepare for the Procedure

On the morning of your procedure, ensure that you’ve shaved your underarm area. This maximizes the dose of laser light that your hair follicle receives, as regrowth can absorb it first and reduce the efficacy of each treatment. Keep your underarms clean and free of personal care products such as deodorant that sit on top of the skin.  

What to do After Underarm Laser Hair Removal?

You don’t have to worry about inconvenient aftercare guidelines. At Bella Sana, we use the precise Cutera XEO laser for all our treatments. This device is more targeted than older models, as hair absorbs the laser light much more readily than skin. Even clients with darker skin or fairer hair are free of inflammation or irritation after treatment. If this sounds like you, and you’ve searched for “underarm laser hair removal near me,” you’ve come to the right place. 

You can still wear deodorant, go outside, and wear whatever clothing you want. Just remember to return for your follow-up appointments to finish the course of treatment. 

How Long Does an Underarm Laser Hair Removal Last?

Is laser hair removal permanent? After the recommended course of six to eight treatments, you can expect minimal to no regrowth, with maintenance sessions every two or three years if you need or want them. You may only have slight regrowth, with fewer, finer hairs that are less likely to cause irritation after shaving. It’s important to complete your treatment plan, as most hair will grow back after one session.
