How Permanent is Laser Hair Removal

The question is laser hair removal permanent is the most popular question I am asked. It is confusing when some places advertise Laser Hair Removal as permanent hair removal, and others say something different. What is the truth?

The answer is that Laser Hair Removal is a hair reduction treatment that does not guarantee permanent results. It is misleading to say it is permanent as causes of hair growth, such as hormones, are unpredictable and could stimulate hair growth.

This means you may require maintenance sessions after a course of treatment for long-term hair reduction. Saying this, when hair regrowth happens, it is usually finer and lighter in colour.

Why do people get hair laser removal?

Because laser hair removal is currently one of the most effective hair removal methods available, unwanted hair can be highly upsetting and affect self-confidence. Laser hair removal can be a life-changing experience for people who are suffering from unwanted hair or ingrown hair. Are there any negatives to laser hair removal.

What are the benefits of laser hair removal?

Hair reduction is not the only benefit of laser hair removal. Other benefits include reducing ingrown hair, smooth skin, and feeling confident and happy. Because it is a long-term solution, laser hair removal is also cost-effective. In the long term, you will also save money and time.

Keep in mind that while Laser hair removal works on all skin tones, it works best on people with light skin tones and dark hair. People with darker skin tones can be carefully treated but need more sessions. The lighter the hair colour is, the harder it is to treat with a laser.  Laser hair removal doesn’t work on white/grey hair as there is no melanin.
