Is Laser Hair Removal Permanent?

Men and women who want to remove unwanted hair can find a longer-lasting alternative to shaving, waxing, depilatory creams, and other temporary solutions. Although laser hair removal is not a permanent solution for unwanted hair, the results can last from months to years. 

That's because laser hair reduction targets the hair follicle in its active growth phase (also known as the anagen stage). The laser's heat passes through the skin and is absorbed by the hair follicle, disabling it and impeding its re-growth. 

When the hair eventually grows back, it is often finer, lighter in color, and less noticeable. Maintenance treatments can produce even longer-term hair reduction—a convenient option since laser hair reduction is a non-invasive treatment requiring little to no downtime. 

Various factors affect how long your hair reduction results will last, including:

  • The skill of your laser technician
  • Your hormones
  • The hair's density and growth phase
  • Where the hair is located 

Hair on the body tends to respond better to the treatment, while facial hair often requires more treatment sessions. Laser hair reduction results also vary depending on your hair and skin type. In most cases, the treatment works best on dark, coarse hair. 

Our experienced laser technicians are happy to discuss laser hair reduction options with you and assess whether the treatment is right for your goals. To learn more, [consultation]request a consultation[/consultation] at our or call us at [phone] to schedule an appointment.
