Can I Have Multiple Areas Treated During the Same Laser Hair Removal Session?

1/13/2024

If you’re like many people who are considering laser hair removal, you probably have more than one area of unwanted hair growth you’d like to have treated. Rather than scheduling separate appointments for each treatment area — which can prolong your treatment course and require many additional visits — our providers at RenewMD Medical Spa in Reno, NV are proud to offer laser hair removal for multiple areas during a single treatment session. Here, you’ll find more information on what to expect during laser hair removal, including which areas can be treated simultaneously, how many treatment sessions you may need to achieve your desired results, and more.

How does laser hair removal stop hair growth?

One of the most important things to keep in mind when considering laser hair removal is that the treatment is designed to significantly reduce hair growth versus prevent growth altogether. Still, most patients do experience a cessation of growth in certain areas following a full round of laser hair removal. In some cases, new growth may reappear after several months or even years, but it is typically much thinner, finer, and more sparse than the patient’s original hair growth. When this happens, a touch-up treatment can be performed for maintenance.

Technically speaking, laser hair removal works by damaging or destroying hair follicles through the delivery of laser energy, which is attracted to the pigment in the follicle. For this reason, patients with darker hair and lighter skin tones often achieve the most dramatic results.

Where can laser hair removal be performed?

Laser hair removal is generally considered safe and effective for almost any area of the body where unwanted hair growth is present — with a few exceptions, like inside the nose and ears, on tattooed skin, and others. Common treatment areas for laser hair removal include:

  • Upper lip
  • Chin
  • Cheeks
  • Glabella
  • Full Face
  • Beard
  • Back
  • Stomach
  • Chest
  • Shoulders
  • Pubic area
  • Bikini line
  • Buttocks
  • Underarms
  • Legs
  • Arms
  • Toes and feet
  • Fingers and hands

Prior to treatment, our team will carefully evaluate your skin tone, hair type, and desired treatment areas to determine whether laser hair removal may be safe, appropriate, and effective for you.

Can I have my legs and face treated at the same time with laser hair removal?

Yes. Many patients take the opportunity to address all of their desired treatment areas simultaneously with laser hair removal for added convenience and a more complete transformation. Patients should keep in mind that at least six treatments will still be necessary, as hair follicles grow in varying cycles and will need to be treated during their active growth cycles. Because not all hair follicles will be in their active phase at the same time, treatments will be spaced out several weeks apart to ensure a complete treatment. By targeting all of your stubborn areas of growth at once, you can achieve smoother, silkier skin sooner and finally free yourself from the hassle of constant shaving, waxing, and plucking.
