Underarm Laser Hair Removal

Getting to the root of the problem

Throw your hands in the air like you just don’t care! Underarm laser hair removal is THE ticket to smooth, hairless armpits. With tank top season just around the corner, it’s a great way to feel more confident in your skin.

If you’re interested in laser hair removal for your underarms, you’ve come to the right place. We’ll explain exactly what it’s like to experience underarm hair removal at SEV Laser, so you’ll know if it’s the right service for you.

How Does Underarm Laser Hair Removal Work?

Laser hair removal is a permanent hair reduction method. It works incredibly well on the underarms since the hair there tends to grow thicker and darker than elsewhere on the body.

It relies on incredible technology that gives long-term results. The laser’s light is able to penetrate down to the hair follicle, where it can distinguish between the skin and the root of the hair. It damages the follicle itself without harming the surrounding skin, which terminates the follicle’s ability to regrow hair.

What Can I Expect at My First Appointment?


The first laser hair removal appointment is always the most intimidating, so our goal at SEV Laser is to make you as comfortable as possible.

Prior to your appointment, we will have you sign a consent form that also details all of the pre-care and contraindications for laser hair removal. We’ll ask you to come in without any deodorant on since it can interfere with the laser.

Then, when you come for your appointment, your nurse or laser technician will again confirm that you’re a good candidate for the service. Then, you’ll lie back, and she’ll get started!

The underarm treatment area is usually quite self-explanatory. We will ask you to lift up your arm and, using a skin-safe pencil, we will draw a border around the area of hair growth. With that done, we’ll start zapping the skin. Once we finish one side, we’ll move on to the other side, and it’s over before you know it!

Following the appointment, we ask that you avoid deodorants, sun exposure, as well as intense exercise and saunas for a couple of days. Other than that, there’s no downtime, and you’ll be able to resume your normal day-to-day life.

Why Laser Hair Removal is Best for the Underarms


The underarm area tends to respond incredibly well to laser. Because of the color and texture of the hair there, the laser has an easy time pinpointing the follicle, and results tend to be excellent.

Underarm laser hair removal also has some big benefits over other hair removal methods. As anyone who has shaved their underarms knows, it’s really hard to achieve total smoothness. Often, you still end up with a bit of a shadow, or missed spots because of the concave shape of the armpit.

As for waxing, it can be extremely painful, even compared to laser. It also often leads to ingrown hairs, which laser hair removal can actually resolve. You also have to wait for the hair to grow out between appointments, while laser allows you to shave in between. As for cost – a laser hair appointment is only a touch more expensive than a waxing appointment, but the difference is that after full a series of sessions, you’ll have long-lasting results. With waxing, the hair grows back, so it’s a lifelong commitment.

Why Men Should Try Underarm Laser Hair Removal

There are so many great reasons for men to try underarm laser hair removal! First of all, the results from laser are long-lasting, making it a one-off cost that saves you a lot of time, money, and hassle in the long term. That can’t be said for shaving or waxing.

While hair laser removal for men is a little painful, most patients tolerate it without any issue. Comparatively, it’s a lot less painful than either waxing or electrolysis. Laser also has the benefit of not causing bumps and ingrown hairs, which is a big issue for many men who shave on a daily basis.

We’ve Got Answers

Does Laser Hair Removal Help Lighten Underarms?

Laser hair removal is not a skin-lightening treatment. That said, it can make the underarms look lighter by eliminating dark hair from the root. If you have hyperpigmentation from ingrown hairs, laser hair removal will prevent their recurrence and give your skin time to return to its normal skin tone.

Is Underarm Laser Hair Removal Permanent?

Laser hair removal is considered a permanent hair reduction method. Most patients will see a dramatic and lasting reduction in every body part treated. In our experience, the underarms are especially responsive so results are consistently excellent. That said, hormonal fluctuations can lead to some regrowth so you may need the occasional touch-up in the years to come.

Does Underarm Laser Hair Removal Hurt?

Pain levels vary from person to person, but usually, our clients are often surprised to discover that underarm laser hair removal doesn’t hurt as much as they expected! The zap of the laser feels like a very mild sting. Plus, at SEV, all of our machines are equipped with a cooling feature that eases the sting immediately after each pulse.

Is Laser Hair Removal Safe For Underarms?

Yes! Laser hair removal is approved by the FDA as safe and effective, and that includes underarm treatments. As long as your treatment is carried out by an experienced, accredited professional like our staff at SEV and you follow all necessary pre-care and aftercare instructions, there is no need for concern.

How Many Laser Treatments Do I Need For Underarms?

The precise number of treatments 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.
