Underarm hair is a hard-to-remove hair issue that can be painful and time-consuming. Plucking is uncomfortable and involves holding awkward positions for extended periods of time, and shaving leads to uncomfortable bumps and potentially in-grown hairs. Armpit hair also grows back significantly faster than other body hair.

Underarm Hair Removal Treatment FAQ
Laser hair removal utilizes concentrated beams of light targeted into hair follicles. The pigment within the hair follicles absorbs the light, which in turn damages follicles and destroys the hair, delaying the growth of new hair as well.
Raleigh Laser & Aesthetics utilizes an Elite IQ laser hair removal device. The device provides top-of-the-line technology that provides a custom laser hair removal solution based on a client’s unique skin and hair types.
Most patients do not experience any substantial pain with laser hair removal. Many equate the sensation to a tingling or a mild discomfort.
When preparing for laser hair removal, it is important to refrain from plucking, waxing, or performing any other manual hair removal techniques within six weeks of the procedure. This is due to the fact that laser hair removal targets the root of the hairs, so they need to remain intact. You can, however, shave the hair. This allows you to maintain the area without damaging the root of the hair, as shaving does not affect the root.
Avoid deodorant or under-arm lotions the day of your procedure, as it can affect the treatment.
Laser hair removal is most effective during the growth stage of the hair cycle. Since your treatment area hair will likely be in varied stages during the time of your treatment, it is necessary to undergo six treatments to make certain that all of the hair follicles are treated in the desired area.
Since the underarm area is very small, laser hair removal treatment takes only a few minutes at most. Four weeks is the recommended amount of time in between sessions.
