How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Laser hair removal uses laser energy to destroy hair follicles at the root. The laser light selectively targets the melanin in the hair follicle, and the heat generated during the process damages the follicle. However, the surrounding tissue is not affected by the laser energy. When the follicles are damaged, future hair growth will be delayed because they are responsible for producing hair.
You may need 4-6 treatments to achieve significant hair reduction. Sessions are spaced 4-6 weeks apart.
What Results Can You Expect?
After your first treatment, you will notice a decline in the thickness and density of hair in the treated area. The improvements will continue until the final treatment in the series is complete, after which you should have smooth, hair-free skin.
How Long Does Laser Hair Removal Last?
Laser hair removal provides long-lasting results, but it doesn’t last forever. Your hair will grow back eventually, but once you have completed the required number of sessions, you can enjoy hair-free skin for months or even years. When hair grows back after laser hair removal, it is usually thinner and lighter than before.
How soon hair grows back after laser hair removal depends on several factors, including the treatment area.
The treatment area affects hair regrowth because hair grows faster in some areas of the body than others. The results of laser hair removal will last longer on the arms, bikini area, and legs than on the face, neck, and chest, where hair grows faster.
Skin tone, skin color, and hair density can also impact the rate of regrowth after laser hair removal.
