Underarms laser hair removal for women in Geneva: how does it work?With the bikini line, underarms laser hair removal is one of the most requested body areas by women. And that is not surprising: 9 out of 10 of them remove hair from this area to maintain their skin soft, clean and without any hair on a daily basis.
It is a guarantee of comfort, hygiene, and self-confidence, but it also represents a daily constraint. Permanent laser hair removal will tackle the hair pigment and remove each hair bulb at the root. Would it be the ideal method to get rid of those unsightly hairs on your underarms finally?
Underarms laser hair removal: is it really advantageous?
The underarms represent a sensitive and somewhat capricious area: the skin is thin, but the hair is thick and grows in both directions. No conventional hair removal technique is perfectly suited to this body area. So, daily, women must choose between the rapid hair regrowth after using a razor, the pain produced by waxing, or the irritation caused by electric hair removal.
With laser hair removal in your Geneva centre, you will simplify your life and get real comfort and peace of mind.
In addition to making you save time, laser hair removal will be perfect for getting rid of ingrown hairs or pimples associated with more traditional hair removal techniques. Your skin will remain beautiful and soft every day.
You will also gain the feeling to be clean every day. Gone are the days when you refuse an unexpected invitation to go to the swimming pool with a friend. You will no longer feel embarrassed at the idea of dancing, swimming or playing with children spontaneously. With permanent laser hair removal, you will gain self-confidence in all circumstances. In your Epilia laser centre, the first session is a free consultation aiming at informing you about the laser hair removal technique and answer all your questions. Our practitioner will study your project and the areas to be treated in order to establish a diagnosis and determine the number of sessions adapted to your phototype and hair type. Therefore, do not hesitate to contact us on +41 22 321 20 00 or make an appointment online.
The treatment starts between 24 and 48 hours before the session with an important step: shaving your underarms. Ideally, your hair should be neither too long nor too short for guaranteeing good laser efficiency and for our laser assistant to work under good conditions.
On the D-day, you will be received by your practitioner who will provide you with protective glasses that you must wear during each session and throughout the treatment. Put them on, sit comfortably in our armchair and let us guide you.
The practitioner will begin to scan the body area to be treated. Since your underarms is a small zone, you will be surprised by the duration of the treatment, which will only take a few minutes.
After the laser session, the laser assistant will apply a soothing cream. Then, hydration should be continued at home in the days following the session. It is also important to avoid exposing the treated area to the sun the following week. With underarms, this advice is easy to follow all year round: this area is naturally protected from the sun. All that will be left for you to do is to regularly exfoliate your skin to eject the hair bulb following your treatment.

Rest assured: the treatment is very quick and our laser centre in Geneva is equipped with a machine that cools the skin and has an anaesthetic effect, which helps you handle the pain you may feel in an efficient way.
