How Long Does Laser Hair Removal Last?

If you don’t want to bother with daily shaving or waxing, laser hair removal may be the ideal alternative for you. Laser hair removal is fast, effective, and long-lasting. However, it is an investment that requires time and money, so clients generally want to know how long it will last before starting the procedure. 

At Balanced Aesthetics, we offer the most advanced laser hair removal technology to facilitate quick and comfortable treatments.

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. 

Why Does Hair Continue to Grow After Laser Hair Removal 

Hair growth continues because of the hair growth cycle. Your hair goes through several phases in a growth cycle – anagen (active), catagen (transitional), and telogen (resting). However, the laser energy only works on hair in the active phase of growth. 

The hair growth cycle is different for each hair. As a result, some hair will stop growing because of the damage to the follicle, but hairs that are not treated will continue to grow.  

Are You a Good Candidate for Laser Hair Removal? 

Thanks to advances in laser technology, laser hair removal is now possible for most skin types. However, the procedure works best on people with dark hair and light skin. 

If you are looking for a long-term solution to the problem of unwanted hair, laser hair removal can give you silky-smooth skin. Although hair may grow back after treatment, the results can last for years.
