Laser epilation, in its most general definition, is the process of removing unwanted hair using a laser device. In principle, laser beams are absorbed by the melanin pigment in the hair follicles and converted into heat energy. The heat energy in question causes the destruction of the hair follicles and prevents the regrowth of the hairs. Laser epilation gives a more permanent result compared to other hair removal methods such as depilation, and can also be applied in a wider area. However, it shows some differences according to the skin color and hair structure of the person who has the procedure. In addition, there may be temporary side effects such as mild redness or tenderness on the skin after the procedure.

Laser Hair Removal Stages
As it is known, laser hair removal consists of a process. This process can be summarized in 5 main sections as follows.
- Consultation phase: First of all, the person should consult a specialist and get detailed information about the process before having laser epilation. In this consultation, you will be asked questions about the condition of your hair, your skin type, and it will be evaluated whether the procedure is suitable for you.
- Preparation phase: Before laser epilation is applied, the hairs must be shortened or trimmed. This allows the laser beams to reach the hair follicles more accurately. Also, your skin may need to be cleaned and cooled before the session.
- Process phase: During laser application, laser beams are sent to the hair follicles with the laser device. By targeting the melanin pigment, laser beams produce heat energy in the hair follicles and destroy it. This process may cause a slight burning sensation and short-term mild pain during the procedure.
- Post-procedure care phase: It is very important to follow the care rules after the procedure. It is possible to experience temporary side effects such as slight redness or swelling on your skin after laser hair removal. These side effects usually go away within a few hours or a few days. After the procedure, it is recommended not to expose your skin to sunlight, not to take a hot shower or bath, and not to do heavy exercise.
- Session process: The time period between two sessions may vary depending on the person’s skin type, hair structure and other factors. However, the number of sessions to be treated and the duration of the sessions may vary depending on the condition of the unwanted hair.

Number of Sessions Required for Effective Laser Hair Removal

In general, an average of 6-8 sessions are required to completely remove the hair of a person in the desired area. However, some people may need more or less sessions under the influence of the factors mentioned above. In addition, the permanence of laser epilation depends on the frequency and intervals of the sessions and the power of the applied laser.
