Does hair grow thicker after laser? A common myth surrounding laser hair removal is that hair grows back thicker after treatment. But unless you understand how laser works this is aimed only to scare you away from the procedure. However, this is simply not the case. Laser hair removal does not cause hair to grow back thicker. Instead, it aims to reduce the thickness and density of hair over several sessions.
How does laser hair removal work? And how does the hair grow after?
Laser hair removal works by directing concentrated light into the hair follicle, inhibiting the hair’s ability to grow without damaging the surrounding skin. This process targets the melanin (colour) in the hair follicle and will lead to permanent reduction of hair.
Does hair grow thicker after laser?
During the course of your treatments, you might notice hair appearing thicker or darker for a brief period. This happens when the hair is shedding from the follicle after treatment. Once the hair sheds, the results will start to show.
Remember, consistency is key in laser hair removal. It’s not a one-time treatment but a process. Typically, you’ll need multiple sessions to see significant results. And this is because the laser can only target hairs during their “anagen” growth phase.
Take your time to choose the best Clinic for you
For those seeking a long-term solution to hair removal, it’s essential to choose a trusted clinic to ensure a safe and effective treatment. The best laser hair removal clinics will provide a thorough consultation and professional service tailored to your skin and hair type. While laser can not cause thicker hair growth, wrong settings applied to your skin type, can in rare cases over stimulate hair production or leave you with scars, pigmentation and even burns.
