First, the hair is destroyed from underneath the skin and sheds out completely. Afterward, the pores in the skin close, leaving only smooth skin. No more shaving, waxing, ingrown hairs, or razor burns.

Arm hair: It’s here, it’s there… and yes, it’s there too. Remove unwanted hair anywhere on your arm with Laser Hair Removal. There are three types of treatments to choose from, including Underarm Laser Hair Removal, Upper Arm Hair Removal, and Full Arm Laser Hair Removal. Treatment is ideal for most anyone, both man or woman, who is struggling with excess or unwanted hair anywhere on their arms.
To prepare for Arm Hair Removal of any type, you’ll want to avoid direct UV exposure for up to a week before treatment. So, be sure to steer clear of sunny beach days and tanning beds—even sunless tanning products shouldn’t make the cut. For Armpit Laser Hair Removal, it’s less likely you’ll have to risk direct sun exposure. However, to be cautious, keep covered regardless.
Remember to stop all waxing and shaving six weeks before your appointment. Laser Hair Removal relies on the melanin in the hair follicle to locate and destroy hair at the source, so you want to avoid any process that fully removes the hair from the skin. You can shave and should do so 24 hours before your appointment. For Underarm Laser Hair Removal and Upper Arm Hair Removal, consider lightly exfoliating a few days before your appointment to rid the area of dead skin cells and product build-up.
Underarm Laser Hair Removal typically takes around 15 minutes, where Full Arm Laser Hair Removal will likely be closer to 30 minutes. Throughout your session, you might feel moderate discomfort. Most clients describe the sensation as the feeling of a rubber band hitting the skin. When treatment is complete, your technician will apply a soothing Aloe Vera gel to calm the treated area.
Aftercare for Arm Hair Removal is relatively simple. Avoid direct UV exposure for a week after treatment, taking care to cover the skin if you’ll be in direct sunlight. If redness, swelling, or itchiness occur, apply an Aloe Vera gel to the treatment area. For your own comfort, opt for looser fitting tops after Arm Hair Removal to allow the area to breathe.
