How Long Does Laser Hair Removal Last?

Shaving away unwanted hair is such a futile experience when you really stop to think about it. For example, in the summertime, you can shave your legs and get ready for shorts and bathing suits one morning, only to have to spend time a day or two later repeating the process! Waxing is only a little bit better. Once you wax your upper lip, brows, or face, you know it’s only a matter of weeks before you are back in line at the spa or salon waiting to do it again. Is laser hair removal really a better way? We think so! Read on!

What Is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal is a non-invasive and non-surgical alternative to shaving and waxing. It uses concentrated light energy to heat and damage the hair follicles causing them to enter into a state of dormancy. This damage inhibits or delays future hair growth. Areas that can be treated include the back, bikini area, legs, face, chest, underarms, and arms.

Hair removal treatments usually take an hour or less, depending on the area of the body being treated. Patients commonly need up to 8 treatments spaced a month apart. With each treatment, the hair will thin and become finer in texture. Eventually, the hair will stop regrowing, leaving the area hair-free.

Laser hair removal can be permanent if you are committed to your treatment plan. The key to making it permanent is to complete the full series of treatments, including occasional maintenance treatments. Because hair follicles will eventually heal after a long period of time, it is possible to see some hair regrowth. Hair that regrows will be finer, lighter, and fewer in number. For this reason, occasional maintenance sessions will need to be scheduled once or twice each year to keep the results permanent. 

Laser hair removal treatments are convenient (less than an hour each), effective even after the very first treatment, and comfortable. There is no downtime and clients can immediately go about their busy days after each treatment. Scheduling your maintenance treatments once or twice each year is a commitment that won’t take much time out of your busy life and makes permanent hair removal an amazing thing!
