Is laser hair removal permanent?

Laser hair removal is one of the most commonly done cosmetic procedures in the U.S and is also getting popular in India. Once considered a women’s thing, today there is an increased demand for permanent hair removal for men. Therefore, a lot of men in India are also opting for laser hair removal.

Laser hair removal is certainly an option worth considering. If you are bothered by regular plucking, tweezing, waxing or shaving unwanted body hair, laser hair removal is a relief. Often touted for providing permanent hair removal, the treatment actually can provide up to 90% hair reduction! If you have been wondering whether the treatment provides permanent hair removal, here’s your answer. It does last much longer than waxing and shaving but the hair does grow back, only finer, and fewer in numbers.

How long does it last?

One of the reasons why the hair removal is not permanent is because of the hormonal changes that our body goes through. These changes can trigger new hair growth. With laser hair removal, you can get rid of your body hair and can also opt for facial hair removal. The treatment targets hair follicles through laser beam. The pigments in the hair follicles absorb the light which destroys them and damages the hair follicles. By destroying the follicles, hair production gets temporarily disabled. The result is not permanent because the hair follicles tend to heal and leads to new hair production. A minimum of eight treatment sessions is recommended to reach ninetypercent permanent hair reduction.

Our bodies go through different stages of hair growth. Laser hair removal only treats the hair follicles that are currently growing. Therefore, to ensure best results, the treatment takes place in various sessions. With each session, you will notice fewer hair follicles. Overall, it is a quick process and the time taken depends on the area of hair removal. Although laser hair removal is not actually permanent, it is the most effective process to slow down your hair growth. The hair that gets regenerated gets lighter in texture and color. However, the rate of reduction varies from person to person.

Despite the high rate of success, there can be side effects from laser hair removal. To ensure best results with minimum risk, consult a credible cosmetologist.
