I am a 31 year old male with a lot of chest and back hair. About how many laser hair removal treatments would it take to remove the bulk of the hair?
Men with a great deal of chest and back hair are quickly becoming our most common clients for laser hair removal. The number of laser hair removal treatments that you will need to effectively reduce your chest and back hair is usually between 5 or 6 treatments. The number of treatments required is dependant upon the growth cycle of the hair and not the amount of hair that we are addressing. Hair follicles are on different growth cycles and the lasers which are used for hair removal are most effective when they are applied to the growth phase of the hair follicle. We generally suggest a yearly touch up for laser hair removal.
