Armpit Laser Hair Removal: Cost, Information, and Everything Else
Armpit hair is perhaps the top reason why most women would want to opt to have hair removed from their bodies. And the three most used techniques for hair removal are, in no particular order, shaving, tweezing, and waxing. While there’s no disputing the effectiveness of these methods, these methods are just temporary and come with their own disadvantages.
Many women can spend numerous hours shaving their pits throughout their entire lifetime. But as the blade continually touches the skin, shaving can cause the armpits to darken or cause unsightly marks. That is why most people choose to wax or tweeze the hair out. But tweezing can cause “chicken skin syndrome” on the armpits while waxing just hurts a lot. So what else is there to choose? We suggest armpit laser hair removal.
Stay Hair-Free with Laser Hair Removal
To repeat for dramatic effect, shaving can cut or darken your skin, tweezing can cause skin to look like that of a chicken (and just takes too much time), and waxing just hurts too much. Worst of all, these are just temporary so hair ultimately grows back within a couple of weeks, which means you’ll need to do everything again. Ditch the razor, tweezers, and hot wax and switch to the only hair removal solution you’ll ever need: armpit laser hair removal.
Laser hair removal offers a permanent solution for reducing unwanted hair from your underarms. This is a good alternative for people who have sensitive skin that are prone to darkening, scratching, or ingrown hairs from shaving, or hurts too much or bleeds when waxing. Unlike other treatments, laser hair removal does not cause unsightly ingrown hair, skin bumps, or darkening of the underarms. All you get is baby smooth, hair-free underarms that you can flaunt whenever you want.
Indy Laser Center offers you a quick, permanent solution for reducing the growth of unwanted hair on the underarms. With armpit laser hair removal, having to worry about hairy underarms is a thing of the past. No need to plan your life or outfits around your shaving or waxing plans. You can wear whatever you want, with confidence.
How Long Does the Entire Treatment Take?
Every armpit laser hair removal session typically doesn’t take up too much time for either male or female because the underarm region is not too large. Treatment sessions don’t take up more than 10 minutes – that’s it. And it takes about 5 to 10 sessions to complete the entire treatment. Once the entire treatment is completed, you can now enjoy your baby smooth underarms, with no darkening, lumps, or ingrown hair.

Frequently Asked Questions about Armpit Laser Hair Removal
Does armpit laser hair removal hurt?
Similar to the pubic region, the skin around the underarms are also extra sensitive, which makes undergoing laser treatment in this area kind of terrifying. But countless people who have tried laser underarm treatment have said that there isn’t too much pain. The sensation that you might feel during treatment can be likened to a small rubber band snapping on the skin. So there really is nothing to worry about. However, if at some point the pain does become unbearable, make sure that you tell your medical aesthetician immediately so the laser settings can be adjusted.
Will the treatment be affected by darker skin?
Fair skin and dark hair is the most ideal for laser treatment – but this doesn’t mean darker skin can’t be treated. There are different types of lasers that can be used to treat other skin types.
Can the treatment cause darker skin?
No, it does not. While the laser can feel a bit hot, it does not burn the skin to the point where it causes darkening. In fact, it’s considered one of the best treatment methods for underarm hair because it doesn’t cause darker skin, as opposed to shaving where friction can cause darkening of the skin.
Can laser treatment get rid of dark skin?
Unfortunately, the treatment itself cannot lighten the skin since lasers only target pigmentation on the hair and not on the skin. But there is good news. Since most dark underarms are caused by friction while shaving, not having to shave all the time means reduced friction. Over time, skin will lose the pigmentation and will return to its original state.
Does laser treatment stop your underarms from sweating?
Unfortunately, it does not. The hair follicles and the sweat glands are two different entities. The laser during treatment only affects the hair follicles, but not the sweat glands. But while your underarms may still sweat, there will be noticeably less odor because there is no more hair to absorb the sweat.
Will laser treatment remove ingrown hair?
Yes, it can. The energy from the laser reaches the hair follicles to effectively remove all hair, including ingrown hair.
Am I still allowed to undergo laser hair removal even if I have a rash?
When your skin has an inflammation or rashes on the skin, the best thing you should do is to postpone laser treatment and instead seek medical treatment to treat your current skin condition. It is not advisable to shine laser on irritated skin as it may aggravate the condition and make it worse.
I feel some numbness on the treatment area. Will this reduce sensation? Is this permanent?
Any side effects felt after the treatment is only temporary and usually disappears after 24 to 48 hours. If some symptoms do appear, do not hesitate to tell your practitioner about what you are feeling so they can give you an ointment or cream to reduce the symptoms.
Preparing for Your Appointment
- Prior to treatment, make sure that you shave your underarms 12 to 24 hours before your scheduled appointment. Long hair can get singed during the treatment, which can be painful when they fall on your skin.
- Scrub the area gently or use a mild exfoliant to remove any buildup of dead skin, but not too much that the skin might get too sensitive during treatment.
