Is Laser Hair Removal Permanent?


Typically speaking, laser hair removal is permanent in the long run. However, people who undergo this treatment once shouldn’t be disappointed if some hair in the targeted area grows back.

It is possible to treat the area again to reduce the number of hairs that regrow. In some cases, it is possible to eliminate the hair altogether!

Most people find that if the hair does regrow, it is lighter and less noticeable than before. This is because the laser may damage the hair follicle even though it has failed to destroy it.

Whether or not hair grows back depends on a number of reasons; including the type of hair that regrows and the skill of the person removing the hair.

If a hair follicle is damaged but not destroyed, the hair will eventually grow back after one session of laser hair removal. It can be difficult to destroy every single hair follicle, so most people will see some hair regrowth.

When hair regrows it is possible to treat it again. This is why we always suggest having several laser hair removal treatments for permanent laser hair removal!

For some people, hair may be too light, too short, or resistant to treatment. In these cases, a person might choose to use other forms of hair removal methods, such as plucking away stray hairs or lightly shaving them.
