How Long Does the Laser Hair Removal Process Take?

By: Our Team


Beautiful Skin Denver has helped countless clients achieve smooth and hair-free skin through laser hair removal. The process is quick, relatively painless, and provides long-lasting results. However, many people wonder how long it takes to complete laser treatment and when they will need to come in for additional sessions.

Most people require a minimum of four laser sessions spaced 6 – 10 weeks apart. Of course, our team can provide a more accurate estimate during a consultation in Denver, CO. Call now to book an appointment and learn about laser hair removal — your journey to beautiful skin is a phone call away.

How is laser hair removal performed?

Beautiful Skin Denver invests in top technologies like the Soprano® Titanium laser and ICE Plus™ cooling system to provide safe and comfortable laser hair removal. Our skilled technicians use a handheld device to emit a concentrated beam of light to the targeted area. The light is absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicles, damaging them and preventing future hair growth. This process is repeated in multiple sessions to ensure all excess hair follicles are treated at different stages of growth.

How many laser treatments do I need?

The number of laser sessions required varies and depends on hair color, skin type, and the size of the area being treated. On average, most people require 6 – 10 sessions for significant hair reduction. Some individuals may need more or less depending on their unique hair. Our team at Beautiful Skin Denver will create a custom plan for each client to help ensure the best results.

How long does each session take?

The duration of each session also differs based on the size and area being treated. Here's a general guideline of what to expect at our office in Denver, CO:

  • Extra small area (lip, chin, sideburns, nose, ears, or areolas): 2 – 5 minutes per session
  • Small area (underarms/armpit, stomach line/happy trail, hands, or bikini line): 2 – 5 minutes per session
  • Medium area (half legs, half arms, buttocks, neck (front or back), lower or upper back, shoulders, beard, or full bikini): 3 – 5 minutes per session
  • Large area (full arms, chest, abdomen, full face and neck, or Brazilian: 3 – 10 minutes per session
  • Extra large area (full legs, chest and abdomen, or full back): 7 – 15 minutes per session

How long do results last? Will I need touch-ups?

Laser treatment is a long-term solution for reducing excess hair. After completing the recommended number of sessions, most clients will not need to return for months at a time. However, you should know that factors like hormonal changes and genetics may cause some regrowth over time. In such cases, maintenance or touch-up sessions can be scheduled at Beautiful Skin Denver. Our goal is to provide clients with smooth-looking skin for as long as possible.
