Will my hair grow back after Laser Hair Removal?
When asking the question “will my hair grow back after laser hair removal” it’s important to be aware that the treatment should never be approached in a ‘one size fit’s all’ manner and every patient is different in their response to treatment.
There are three factors which influence the effectiveness of laser hair removal and these can include the following:
- The quality of the laser device
- The skill of the clinician
- The patient’s skin tone, hair growth phase and hair colour
How does Laser Hair Removal work?
With the use of an advanced laser technology device, a fully- trained laser therapist applies a focused pulse of laser light to the area of treatment. At Skin Perfection, we use multi-wavelength technology which means that all skin types can be treated with our laser devices.
With some of the more dated technology, treatment may not be possible with darker skin tones or light, fine hair. We only use lasers which are manufactured by Cynosure, an award-winning manufacturer of medical-grade laser platforms and machinery. However, even with our advanced, state-of-the-art technology, the laser light can only target hair which is in a specific growth stage (Anagen) which means that multiple sessions are needed to achieve permanent, lasting results.
Our technicians have been fully-trained to assess your skin and hair type in a no obligation consultation. This means that any concerns with setting the technology correctly are dispersed. We know how to use our devices so that they perform optimally to deliver the fastest, most comfortable treatment possible for you.
How could I affect the results of Laser Hair Removal?
Hair grows in 3 stages:
- Anagen phase
- Catagen phase
- Telogen phase
Laser hair removal is only effective during only one of these three phases, the Anagen phase. Fortunately, around 75% of the hairs on your body will be in their Anagen phase of growth, as this is the longest cycle. Since not every hair can be targeted in one session of laser hair removal, you will notice that some of your hair will continue to regrow for a few weeks after your first session. With each subsequent session, however, more and more hair is targeted at the vital Anagen phase, which means you will see smoother, silkier skin in approximately 6 to 9 sessions of laser hair removal.
Laser hair removal targets and reduces the hairs growing ‘now’. You may experience some regrowth due to hormonal changes such as pregnancy, menopause, conditions such as PCOS or hormonal changes due to some medications. Therefore, it is important to maintain occasional ‘top up’ sessions here at Skin Perfection, London and inform us if you are undergoing any hormonal changes or taking medications, so that we can continue to ensure that you maintain the smooth skin that you love, following your treatment.
