Top 5 benefits of lower arm laser hair removal

Hair on the lower arm area can be an issue for some people, most people have a light, downy growth here which is hardly noticeable, if this hair is light in texture and colour we would never recommend removing this with laser as it would not respond to treatment. However, if you have a thick, dark growth in this area you may feel like you want to hide your arms in case someone might notice. If you feel this way laser may be able to help you reduce this hair so that you feel more comfortable wearing short sleeved tops or vest especially in the summer months. The underarm is probably one of the most popular areas for people to treat with laser, here are the top 5 benefits of laser hair removal on the lower arm.

Constantly feeling at the back of your mind that you need to hide your arms away can get you down. Because your arms are almost always on show if the skin is irritated from waxing or shaving you may feel the need to hide your arms because of this. After laser you won’t need to hide your arms any longer.

Laser will start to work after your first session and any irritation you may have after you shave will begin to improve after session 2-3. Most people would need between 6-8 sessions on their arms, the amount of sessions will depend on the density and colour of your hair, in most cases the lower arm will be quickest to reduce as hair in this area tends to be thicker than the upper arm. If the hair on the upper arms is much lighter in colour we would recommend just treating the lower area as this lighter hair may not respond to treatment.
