Armpit laser hair removal will permanently eliminate hair growth and the need to shave and irritate underarms.
Today, armpit smoothness is considered a social norm. The presence of hair complicates the hygiene of the underarm area. This leads to the growth of bacteria, which, in combination with sweat, cause an unpleasant odor. Frequent shaving and the use of deodorants often cause inflammation and irritation in the armpits.
The laser treatment takes only 10 minutes and is the optimal solution to the problem of unwanted hair, and therefore to hygiene. The action of a laser beam on the hair follicle leads to their selective destruction. After 4-8 epilation treatments, hair growth stops. You no longer need to shave your armpits and you can more easily control sweat odor.

Preparation for laser hair removal for armpits
Do not visit the solarium or sunbathe in the epilation area for at least two weeks.
The day before, 1 day before the armpit laser hair removal treatment, you must carefully shave the hair in this area. Try to avoid cuts and irritation. To do this, use shaving foam or soapy water. The movement of the razor should be against the direction of hair growth. This will reduce irritation and the risk of ingrown hairs. After shaving, treat your skin with an alcohol-based lotion or chlorhexidine to avoid skin irritation during your visit.
Recommendations after the treatment
The laser treatment has no rehabilitation. Redness of the skin is possible, which disappears within a few hours. No special care is required after the treatment. It is recommended not to take a bath, do not wipe the skin with lotions containing alcohol in the first days after the treatment, and do not sunbathe for 3 months. In case of sun exposure, use SPF 30+ within three months after the treatment.
After laser hair removal you will achieve complete cessation of hair growth in the armpit area and forget about cuts and irritation in this area. Your skin will look smooth and flawless. Feel free to show off the beauty of your hands in open top dresses.

Frequently Asked Questions
How many laser hair removal sessions will you need?
Armpit laser hair removal requires 4 to 8 sessions to completely stop hair growth. In the armpits, already after the fourth treatment, a significant decrease in hair growth is observed. Therefore, in most cases 6 armpit hair removal sessions are sufficient.
You can remove no more than 20-30% of hairs in one treatment, which are only in the active stage of growth. In order to remove the remaining 70-80% of the hair, repeated visits are required. As the dormant hair follicles become active, they can be destroyed during the next laser treatment.
You should also remember about fluctuations in hormonal levels, since this is a hormone sensitive area. Fluctuations in the hormonal background can lead to the appearance of new hair, therefore, after the course of treatments, it is recommended to undergo supporting treatments with an interval of 6 to 12 months.
Is it harmful?
Armpit laser hair removal is safe for the body. Laser radiation selectively affects the hair and does not affect deeper tissues. The laser beam is infrared radiation that heats only the hair follicle and cannot cause pathological processes in the skin or deeper tissues.
The axillary region contains lymph nodes, sweat glands and deep vessels. If you have any discomfort or feel an enlarged lymph node, it is strongly recommended to inform the specialist about this before the treatment. Laser hair removal does not have a negative effect on these formations, but in some cases, heating of the inflamed lymph node is undesirable.
Does it hurt?
In the armpit, the skin is delicate and rich in nerve receptors. Leaseir laser hair removal uses contact cooling, which is by far the most effective method.
Everyone is familiar with the situation when, after contact with a hot surface, relief immediately comes if you lean your skin against something cold. This is due to the fact that cooling the skin to low temperatures slows down the conduction of nerve impulses to the brain along the nerve endings.
The same principle is incorporated in the Leaseir laser, which cools the skin with a sapphire crystal to 0 °C and makes epilation comfortable and safe.
In the case of a low pain threshold, we can offer local anesthesia. This is true for the first treatment, when this is the first laser treatment. You will be able to determine your pain threshold and avoid discomfort. As a rule, patients note the treatment as comfortable and do not use anesthetic in subsequent treatments. Tell your doctor during your consultation if you would like to use anesthesia during your first treatment.
How old can you be doing?
The hair removal treatment has no age limit. It can be done at any age.
During puberty, sex hormones stimulate hair growth in hormone-sensitive areas. Hair removal during puberty is not contraindicated and will give good results. But exposure to sex hormones can lead to new hair growth.
If we are talking about adolescence, it is better to postpone the treatment until the end of puberty, when there will be no sharp fluctuations in sex hormones in the body and it will be possible to achieve a permanent cessation of hair growth.
Can the treatment be done during pregnancy?
Hair removal during pregnancy and breastfeeding is not recommended for several reasons:
- During pregnancy and breastfeeding, the melanin content of the skin increases, which can lead to burns.
- The skin increases its fluid content, which increases pain during the treatment and increases the risk of skin burns.
- Changes in hormonal levels during pregnancy can lead to increased hair growth.
It is recommended to interrupt the hair removal course if you are pregnant. You can resume treatments after breastfeeding is over and your menstrual cycle is restored, when hormones are restored and hair removal is effective and predictable.
Can it be combined with botulinum toxin for hyperhidrosis?
Yes, but subject to certain rules.
Botulinum toxin is effectively used to reduce sweat production during hyperhidrosis - increased sweating. Botulinum toxin blocks the transmission of nerve impulses to the sweat glands, which leads to a decrease in sweat production. This solves the problem of excess perspiration.
Laser hair removal is not recommended in this area during the first two weeks after the injection of botulinum toxin. Laser exposure can reduce the effect of the injection treatment. After this period, when the drug has reliably reacted with the nerve endings, laser hair removal will not have a negative effect.
You can also correct hyperhidrosis in our clinic. Get a consultation with our specialist at Venus Clinic, Kiev.
Can waxing be done in between treatments?
Yes, you can wax and shave your hair in between laser treatments.
It is not recommended to do wax depilation 2-3 weeks before depilation. The complete absence of hair after pulling them out by the roots will reduce the effectiveness of the treatment and lead to unreasonable material costs on the part of the patient.
Can I use deodorant during the treatment?
Yes, you can use deodorant when doing laser hair removal in the underarm area. This does not affect the treatment. Even on the day of the treatment, there are no restrictions on the application of deodorant. Before epilation, the specialist will cleanse your skin of deodorant residues.
Can the treatment be done for ingrown hair?
Yes, laser hair removal is an indication for ingrown hair. It is one of the most effective methods of treatment and prevention of ingrown hairs. Epilation from treatment to treatment will reduce the amount of hair in the armpit. As a result, the risk of ingrown hairs will decrease with each subsequent laser treatment.
How does this affect sweating?
During armpit hair removal, the laser acts selectively on the hair and has no effect on the sweat glands. The treatment does not lead to either increase or decrease in sweat production. Laser hair removal reduces hair growth. This indirectly reduces the unpleasant odor caused by bacteria growing on the hair. Hair is an excellent habitat for bacteria. In the presence of sweat, a warm environment and lack of oxygen, bacteria give off an unpleasant odor. Less hair means less bacteria. Therefore, it would be more correct to say that laser hair removal of the armpits does not lead to a decrease in sweat production, but to a decrease in unpleasant odor.
