How Long Does Laser Hair Removal Last?

Laser hair removal is a long term solution for hair removal that destroys the hair follicle. For this reason laser hair removal is known as a long-term hair removal solution rather than a permanent hair removal. Read below to find out how it works, how long it lasts and the cost of laser hair removal.

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

Laser hair removal uses laser technology to target the pigmented hair directly at the follicle of individual hairs. The light travels down the shaft of the hair to the root. The heat from the laser then destroys the follicle and hair can no longer grow from it.

For most people, laser hair removal requires 6-12 sessions depending on the body area and individual.

Is Laser Hair Removal Permanent?

Hair removal that destroys the follicle is permanent. However, people undergoing laser hair removal can expect some hairs from the targeted area to regrow. Overtime, the hair follicles diminish and reduce the number of hairs that are regrown. Whether or not your hair regrows is due to many factors including hair colour, type of hair that regrows and your own body.

Most people find when the hair regrows it is much thinner and lighter making it less noticeable than it was in the past. In some cases such as blonde or grey hair that aren’t effective with laser hair removal people use an alternative treatment such as plucking the hairs.

How Long Does Laser Hair Removal Last?

The amount of hair regrowth depends on the person's unique hair growth cycle. Some individuals have hair that grows quicker than others. Hair that is in resting phase will grow much slower than hair in another phase.

Once your laser hair removal treatment is completed you can expect your results to be maintained for many years when you follow proper maintenance.

Does Skin or Hair Colour Make a Difference?

Hair removal works best on individuals with a light complexion and dark hair. The laser is attracted to the colour of your pigment therefore the darker your hair the better laser hair removal will work on you.

People with dark skin or light hair may require more treatments to achieve their desired results. They may find that their hair grows back quicker.
