Neck Laser Hair Removal

Getting to the root of the problem

Laser hair removal for the neck has become more popular in recent years. It’s a fantastic long-term solution for unwanted hair, whether you’re a woman dealing with unusual growth or a man who is sick and tired of constantly shaving easily-irritated skin. Back-of-the-neck laser hair removal is a great option for those who want a cleaner hairline!

However, the neck is also a sensitive area so it makes sense if you have questions. Will it hurt? How long does it take? We’ll answer all of these questions and more on this page!

How Neck Laser Hair Removal Works

Fundamentally, laser hair removal works by damaging the hair follicle so it will stop growing hair. The light from the laser machine pinpoints the hair follicles and damages them without touching the surrounding skin, leading to long-term smoothness.

What Can I Expect at My First Appointment?


When you come in for your first appointment, you’ll probably be surprised by just how quickly it goes by! At SEV Laser, we use the latest technologies, so neck laser hair removal takes just around 5 minutes. However, please note that your first appointment might be a little longer. Your laser technician or registered nurse will take the time to answer your questions and  give advice. They’ll also confirm that you’re a good candidate for laser hair removal.

There are some contraindications to keep in mind, so make sure to check them in advance of your appointment. If you’re a little nervous, don’t be afraid to ask as many questions as you need. At SEV Laser, our goal is to make sure you’re as comfortable as possible during the treatment.

If you’re wearing any makeup or lotions, your technician will also give you a face wipe to remove them. To cover your eyes, she’ll give you a pair of protective goggles, as well. Then, you’ll be ready to start! Your service provider will use a skin-safe pencil to draw quadrants over your neck. This allows them to work methodically and ensure they don’t miss a single hair.

Finally, the laser treatment can begin. Each zap of the laser will sting a little bit, a pain that is comparable to waxing or tweezing. Most of our clients tolerate it well enough, but we can always take a break if needed. Once we’ve treated the entire neck area, we’ll give you aloe vera to soothe the skin and sunscreen to protect it from the sun.

Target Areas for Neck Laser Hair Removal


We actually offer two different types of neck laser hair removal: Front of the neck and back of the neck. Front of the neck laser covers the neck from base to top. It’s the perfect hair removal solution for women dealing with hirsutism or for men who are tired of shaving their necks.

Back of the neck hair removal is more popular with men, who often combine it with back laser hair removal. It helps create a nice border between the hair and the neck, and helps you go longer between visits to the barber.

How Many Sessions Will I Need?

You will likely need between 6 to 12 sessions to see results, although precise numbers do vary. We usually see around 10%-25% percent reduction in hair growth after each session, which is why it takes multiple treatments to achieve total clarity.

For the laser to effectively destroy the ability of a hair follicle to regenerate, the follicle itself needs to be in an active growth stage. During your treatment, only a percentage of your hairs will be in that stage, and hairs that aren’t won’t be affected as dramatically.

We recommend that our patients come in every 4-6 weeks. This gives the skin enough time to recover and also ensures that many new follicles move into an active growth stage.

Why Laser Hair Removal is Best for Neck and Back of Neck


The neck is a very sensitive area that is prone to bumps, irritation, and ingrown hairs. The greatest benefit of trying laser hair removal for the neck is that, with time, it can help the skin heal and become incredibly smooth.

There are many other benefits to laser hair removal when compared to other hair removal options.

First of all, unlike shaving or waxing, it’s a long-term solution. You’ll never have to double-check for hairs on your neck before leaving the house or constantly scheduling your hair removal sessions. This one-off cost can also save you a significant amount of money if you usually opt for professional waxing.

Finally, while neck laser hair removal is admittedly a little uncomfortable, a single session takes less than 5 minutes. It’s much faster and more tolerable than electrolysis, which is the only other long-lasting hair removal option.

We’ve Got Answers

How Much Does Neck Laser Hair Removal Cost?

At SEV, laser hair removal from the neck costs between $25 and $50 per treatment. Our prices vary based on location.

Is Neck Laser Hair Removal Safe?

Yes! Laser hair removal is approved by the FDA as safe and effective, and that includes neck treatments. Make sure that your treatment is carried out by an experienced, accredited professional like our staff at SEV and follow all necessary pre-care and aftercare requirements.

What Are the Side Effects of Neck Laser Hair Removal?

Neck laser hair removal can lead to some minor skin irritation in the days following treatment. That tends to subside very quickly. In between treatments, some clients experience ingrown hairs around the ten-day mark, as some hair starts growing back. This stops being an issue with repeated treatments.

How Many Sessions Will I Need?

The precise number of sessions differs from client to client based on a whole range of factors. That said, most of our patients achieve their desired results within 6 to 12 treatments. Hormonal fluctuations can induce some regrowth so you may need the occasional touch-up to maintain your results in the years to come.
