The appeal of throwing away your razors, tweezers, and painful waxing supplies is convincing enough to try laser hair removal. There is something incredibly satisfying and appealing about having smooth, soft, hairless skin without undergoing all the work to achieve it.


When patients come to M Spa Face & Body in Webster, TX, for their laser hair removal treatment, they often want to know if they can expect permanent results. The answer is complicated. Everyone has approximately 5 million hairs on their bodies, each of which are independent of each other. Our hair also goes through phases of a growth cycle. A laser hair removal treatment must catch these hairs in the correct stage for the laser energy to effectively damage the follicles and prevent them from growing. In this blog, we’ll explain how laser hair removal works and what to expect from your results.

How Laser Hair Removal Stops Hair Growth

M Spa Face & Body now offers advanced laser hair removal treatments with Cutera Excel HR™ Laser, a new non-invasive laser technology that delivers customized treatments. Our laser removes unwanted hair from the legs, face, arms, chest, and bikini line. The laser hair removal technology works by transmitting energy into your desired location, changing the temperature of the hair follicles to the point where they become damaged. During the next one to two weeks, the hairs in the target area will begin to shed away.


Removing an area of unwanted hair will require several laser hair removal sessions. After each appointment, you’ll notice the hairs in the area become finer and sparser. After you’ve completed a full treatment regimen, you’ll enjoy significantly reduced hair in the targeted area.

How Many Laser Hair Removal Treatments Will You Need?

The number of hair removal sessions you will need depends on several factors, including the size of the treatment area, hair color, skin tone, and how thick or coarse your hair is. Since each individual hair is in a different growth stage, most patients require between three and six appointments to achieve their desired results. Therefore, we recommend scheduling your treatments four to six weeks apart to catch the hairs when they are in the correct growth phase.

Are Laser Hair Removal Treatments Permanent?

Laser hair removal permanently and significantly reduces unwanted hair. While results vary from person to person, they can last anywhere from 12 months to two years. After that, you may require touch-up treatments to maintain your smooth, hair-free skin.
