Dealing with unwanted hair is a hassle no one looks forward to – after all, there's plenty of other things we'd rather be doing with our time! 

When you consider that the average woman spends one entire day each year shaving, it's no surprise long-term solutions like laser hair removal continue to be popular.

This treatment uses light beams to disable the cells involved in hair growth, for long-term results (hello, silky smooth skin). But for the treatment to work, you'll need more than one session. In fact, here at Caci we usually recommend between 6-8 treatments, depending on a variety of factors including the area being treated and your hair type.

So, if you're wondering how it all works and how many treatments you'll need, keep reading to find out everything you need to know.

The hair growth cycle and laser hair removal

Our hair goes through a constant state of growth, transition and shedding throughout our lifetime. What's important to note is that throughout the cycle, individual hairs are in different stages of the process.

Laser hair removal gets rid of unwanted hair by targeting a light beam through the treatment area to the hair shaft and follicle. This generates heat, which loosens the hair and disables the cells involved in hair growth, giving you long-term results.

For best results, however, you'll need multiple treatments in order to target as many of the hairs during the growth cycle as possible. At Caci, we take the guesswork out of it with our laser hair removal plan Freedom, which comes with an exclusive guarantee* so you can rest assured you're in safe hands with us.

Joining us on a Freedom plan means you get a personalised schedule of treatments designed to ensure you get the best results possible. As well as this, you'll receive special membership discounts and rewards on our beauty therapy services and the option of a weekly, fortnightly or monthly payment plan to suit your budget.

For more information, and to find out whether laser hair removal is right for you, we'd highly recommend booking a free consultation at your nearest clinic.
