After a laser hair removal session, it’s common to see hair shedding from the treated areas. This process can take up to two weeks post-treatment. However, what happens if the hair doesn’t fall out after laser hair removal?
How does laser work?
First, it’s crucial to understand that laser hair removal isn’t an instant process. The laser works by targeting the pigment in hair follicles, damaging them to prevent future growth. This damage causes the hairs to shed over a period of time, but it doesn’t instantly remove them. Please do not expect to see instant hair removal like you would get with waxing, as its a totally different concept.
What happens if the hair doesn’t fall out after laser hair removal?
If the hair doesn’t seem to be shedding, there could be a few reasons for this.
- It might be that not enough time has passed post-treatment for the hair to shed.
- Or it could mean that the laser wasn’t able to effectively target the hair follicles because it wasn’t in the right growth phase yet, so the laser couldn’t treat it. But don’t worry if you attend regular treatments this hair will be captured during your next session.
If you notice hair not shedding a couple of weeks after your treatment, it’s important not to forcefully remove it by waxing or plucking. This could disrupt the natural hair growth cycle, which could affect the success of future treatments.
The best course of action is to consult with your laser hair removal expert. They can assess your progress and adjust your treatment plan if necessary. Visiting a reputable clinic, such as a leading laser hair removal clinic in London, ensures you’re in the hands of experienced professionals who can provide personalised advice and treatment.
