How Permanent is Laser Hair Removal?
If you’re tired of getting rid of unwanted hair by waxing, tweezing, and bleaching, you should know that you have another option. Laser hair removal is a safe and effective way to remove unwanted hair from your face and body.
The best part is that it’s not time-consuming or tedious like most hair removal methods. Below, we’ll further discuss how laser hair removal works and whether or not it’s permanent.
How Laser Hair Removal Works
Laser hair removal uses highly concentrated light energy to target the pigment in your hair and destroy your hair follicles without harming your surrounding skin. You can use it to get rid of unwanted hair from your face, bikini area, chest, arms, or anywhere else where you have body hair that’s bothering you.
While your laser hair removal treatment plan will depend on your area of concern and particular hair, most patients enjoy optimal results after 7 treatments. You’ll see up to a 30% reduction in hair loss after each treatment.
Fortunately, laser hair removal causes minimal pain and discomfort, especially when compared to waxing and other painful hair removal solutions. During the treatment, you may feel like you are being snapped by a rubber band. To help minimize your discomfort you will be given a prescription for a topical numbing cream.
Is Laser Hair Removal Permanent?
In many cases, hair removal can offer a permanent solution for clients who are bothered by unwanted hair. However, everyone is different; some patients may never need hair removal treatments again, while others – due to hormones or just getting older – may need to undergo touchups to continue to enjoy sleeker and smoother skin.
When your hair does grow back, however, it will be thinner, finer, and fewer in number. We encourage you to return for as many additional treatments as you’d like.
Am I a Good Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?
If you are tired of shaving, tweezing, bleaching, or have decided your last painful waxing session is your LAST painful waxing session, then you may be a good candidate for laser hair removal. We use the Candela Gentle MaxPro for our laser hair removal treatments, which are safe and effective for all skin types.
However, it’s important to note not everyone will be a good candidate for this treatment. Patients with lighter hair may not see great results from laser hair removal, as this technology targets the darker melanin pigment contained within the hair follicle. We also discourage this treatment if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
Our Nurse Practitioner will meet with you to determine if laser hair removal treatments are right for you.
