Do you have excess body or facial hair that you’d like to get rid of once and for all? Does the constant shaving irritate your skin and leaves you with painful ingrowing hairs? You most likely have already heard of laser hair removal, which the latest and most popular way of permanently reducing your unwanted hair. And the benefits are far more than simply just removing hair. But are laser hair removal results permanent? What is the truth and what should you expect from laser hair removal?
How laser hair removal works?
Laser works be emitting a concentrated light of beam. The heat generated by the laser travels straight to your hair follicles enabling them to produce more hair. However for your treatment to be effective your hair has to be reaching a specific growth stage. Now this where it gets more complicated as not all your hair is growing at the same speed. So to be able to capture all hair cycles you would need to attend regular treatments at every 4-6 weeks for a minimum of 8 treatments.
Are laser hair removal results permanent?
From a medical point of view it is illegal to claim that laser will permanently destroy all you hair for good. However the accurate explanation for laser is that it provides permanent hair reduction.
Usually our patients at Skin Perfection, are delighted with their laser hair removal treatments. Although great results of sometimes up to 70% or more of the hairs reduced after eight to eleven sessions, some patients will be likely to take another course of top ups that they may need to have through out the year just to keep on top of any little re-growth that you may have.
Over the past 10 years we have seen patients who went 5-6 years without having any maintenance sessions. And even then could only present a few fine hair. While other patients come back for regular maintenance after every 6-7 months or a year. But in terms of the amount of hair it is never as much and as thick as it was before they ever started their hair removal treatments.
