Is Laser Hair Removal Permanent?

Let’s face it: shaving and waxing are annoying. You’ve got better things to do with your time. But that doesn’t mean you want to forgo having silky-smooth skin. Rather, you want to find a solution that gives you the hair-free skin you want, without the hassle and inconvenience of shaving. If that sounds familiar, laser hair removal may be your answer. This exciting treatment targets hair follicles at the root, causing them to fall out and grow back a lot more slowly. Over time, hair follicle regrowth is so slow, you can go months without seeing hair. But that info may leave you with this important question: “Is laser hair removal permanent?” 

Laser Hair Removal Isn’t Really Permanent

Laser hair removal can’t lead to a permanent stop to your hair regrowth. But before you despair, keep this in mind: laser hair removal can slow down follicular activity to the point where months can pass by before you need to schedule a new appointment. Laser hair removal is also a great option for reducing the number of hairs that regrow at the targeted site. What’s more, any hair regrowth is a lot lighter and finer, so you don’t need to worry about keeping dark, unsightly stubble at bay. It usually takes about 6 to 12 laser hair removal treatments – spaced three to six weeks apart – to see the above results.

What Areas Can I Treat with Laser Hair Removal?

Today’s laser hair removal technology has made it possible to treat a wide variety of areas. Popular treatment spots include:
  • Legs
  • Bikini area
  • Underarms
  • Chest
  • Back 
  • Shoulders
  • Face (eye area excluded)
  • And more
Laser hair removal works best on candidates with medium to light skin tones, as it’s easier for the technology to target darker hair follicles against these complexions.   “I could not have been happier by my choice of Dr. Brenman and his team.
