Laser epilation (hair removal)

Laser epilation is an effective way to get rid of body hair as it removes hair permanently and does not damage the skin. It can be done on all areas of the body and has no age limit. Laser hair removal targets the hair follicle and its pigment (which gives the hair its colour). The darker and denser the hair, the more effective the laser procedure.

    Armpit laser hair removal is the long-term removal of unwanted hair on the armpits. This is one of our most desired procedures as it will eliminate the need to regularly shave your armpits or remove hair in other painful ways. With the help of a laser beam, the hair is removed with the follicle, which subsequently leads to the loss of unwanted hair.

    Armpit laser hair removal at Confido Aesthetic Medicine Clinic is performed only by personnel with higher medical education.

    How does it work?

    Armpit laser hair removal is a hair removal procedure that directs a laser beam of a specific wavelength at hair follicles. It is proven to be safe and highly effective, allowing you to get rid of unwanted hair for a long time. It is almost painless; during the procedure, the patient does not experience any pronounced discomfort and pain.

    To achieve maximum results, a course of 6-10 procedures is recommended.


    Smooth and groomed armpits will give you a sense of confidence and comfort. The procedure is indicated for both women and men. Laser hair removal does not affect the level of sweating; however, during this procedure, the follicles that store odour are removed (they cannot be removed by any other means), which will significantly reduce discomfort from the smell of sweat, and the skin will acquire a healthy and beautiful appearance. As a result of laser hair removal, hair falls from the follicles painlessly and the result lasts for several years.

    About the procedure

    The procedure is performed quickly and does not skin. Laser hair removal is practically painless; in most cases, this procedure does not require anaesthesia. If the patient’s skin is highly sensitive, the Confido Aesthetic Medicine Clinic specialist will use a special anaesthetic before the procedure.

    Description of the procedure

    During the procedure, the patient wears special protective glasses in order to not harm the eyesight. The skin is cleansed of impurities and the products of the sebaceous glands. Confido’s Aesthetic Medicine Clinic specialist treats the areas with a laser beam. After the procedure, the health worker, if necessary, will prescribe remedies to treat the armpits and a repeat procedure.

    The effect

    The laser affects only the hairs in the active growth stage. After the procedure, they fall out. Inactive hair follicles can resume growth over time, so it is recommended to undergo several treatments to achieve the maximum long-term effect. Part of the hair will fall out immediately after the procedure, the other part within the next two to three weeks. With 6-10 laser hair removal procedures, you will get rid of 90% of unwanted armpit hair.

    What do you need to know before the procedure?

    It is recommended to attend a specialist consultation at Confido Aesthetic Medicine Clinic before the procedure. For three weeks, stop all types of hair removal by pulling in order to avoid damage to the hair follicles (sugaring, tweezers, wax, etc.). Two weeks before the procedure, limit your exposure to the sun and do not visit the solarium. The hair on the armpits should be shaved 24 hours before the procedure (hair length should not exceed 1-2 mm).

    What will happen after the procedure?

    Avoid sports for the first 24 hours and other intense physical activity that can cause you to sweat profusely. For the first two to three days, do not use deodorant, avoid visiting baths, saunas and water centres. Limit your exposure to the sun for the first 14 days, skip a visit to the solarium. Do not use other procedures to remove unwanted hair; if urgently needed, you can use a razor.

    The first procedure will free you from around 20% of armpit hair. After 8-10 procedures, up to 90% of unwanted armpit hair will disappear for a long time.

    Comparative analysis with other procedures Using other underarm hair removal methods can cause allergic reactions, skin irritation and ingrown hairs. Unfortunately, no other methods give as long-lasting an effect as laser hair removal and are often very painful. Confido Aesthetic Medicine Clinic experts advise you to remove unwanted hair with the laser hair removal method.
