Is laser hair removal permanent?
We like to refer to laser hair removal as “permanent hair reduction.” With each treatment, your hair follicles are targeted with pulses of light emitted from the laser.
At various times some of your hair follicles are dormant and some are active. The active follicles are targeted each treatment and then do not grow back the same way. Some of your dormant hair follicles may become active between treatments and then get treated in your following session. After six to eight sessions, most of your hair follicles should be treated.
Some clients see almost complete hair elimination and some clients see a reduction of hair so that what remains is just a fraction of the prior levels of hair growth which get treated in annual or semi-annual touch ups at a greatly reduced rate.
