You did it – you took the plunge and committed to laser hair removal treatments to kiss unwanted hair goodbye. And after multiple sessions, you’re thrilled with the smooth, hair-free results. 

But as time passes, you notice a few stubborn hairs creeping back in. Don’t worry, this is completely normal! 

While laser hair removal aims to provide permanent reduction, maintenance is needed due to hair growth cycles. This is where laser touch ups come in, and at Ethos Spa, we’re here to get your glow back on track.

What Are Laser Hair Removal Touch Ups?

Laser hair removal touch ups, also known as maintenance sessions, are follow-up treatments that target hairs that have regrown after the initial round of laser sessions. They help maintain the smooth, hair-free results achieved through the main laser hair removal treatments.

Touch ups are usually needed because laser hair removal does not completely eliminate all hair follicles in an area. The hair growth cycle means dormant follicles can become active again over time and produce new hair growth. Touch ups target these newly activated follicles.

Why Are Touch Ups Important?

Consistency is key when it comes to laser hair removal results. Skipping touch up sessions can allow newly grown hairs to become more dense, coarse, and numerous. Staying on top of maintenance ensures your skin remains free of unwanted hair regrowth between main treatments.

Touch ups are quick, easy, and more affordable than starting the hair removal process all over again. They provide a way to protect your investment in smooth, hair-free skin.

What Are The Benefits of Laser Touch Up Treatments?

  • Precision targeting of stray regrowth
  • Fast sessions with minimal discomfort
  • Maintain the look and feel of hair-free skin
  • Avoid the hassle and cost of restarting the process
  • Customized to your specific areas of re-growth
  • Increased confidence from consistent smooth skin

Laser Hair Removal Touch Up FAQs

We know you likely have questions about our laser hair removal touch up services. Here we answer some of the most commonly asked questions:

What does ‘laser hair removal touch up’ mean?

A touch up is a follow-up laser session that targets hairs that have regrown after initial treatments. Touch ups help maintain smooth skin.

How often should I get laser hair removal touch ups?

Most patients need a touch up every 6-12 months. Your provider will advise on the ideal schedule.

Does laser hair removal affect tattoos?

How much does a laser hair removal touch up typically cost?

The cost varies but is generally less than an initial session, ranging from $50-$150 per area.

Why might my laser hair removal treatment not be working?

Reasons can include improper laser type, power settings that are too low, or not enough sessions. 

What happens if I stop my laser hair removal treatments early?

Any hairs that were not permanently damaged by the laser may eventually regrow.

How long should I wait between laser hair removal sessions?

Most patients need to wait 4-6 weeks between sessions for the hair follicle to enter the next growth phase.

Can I use hair removal cream before my laser treatment?

No, creams can interfere with the laser targeting the hair properly. Avoid using them prior.

How should I prepare for my first laser hair removal session?

Avoid plucking/waxing for 6 weeks pre-treatment. Come with clean, shaved skin. Avoid sun exposure.

Which type of laser is best for hair removal?

Nd:YAG and Alexandrite lasers work best for most skin and hair types. 

How many sessions are typically needed to completely remove hair with laser?

Most patients need 6-8 sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart for optimal permanent hair reduction.

If my laser hair removal treatment doesn’t hurt, is it still effective?

Not necessarily. Our lasers are designed for comfort. Lack of pain doesn’t mean lack of results.

Does laser hair removal increase the risk of cancer?

No, when performed properly by a trained aesthetician, laser hair removal does not increase cancer risk.
