Is laser hair removal permanent?
One of the most common questions we get: ‘Is laser hair removal permanent?’
It is not permanent…. however, hear me out we cannot call it permanent as your body always develops new hair follicles albeit at a much reduced rate. We do permanent hair REDUCTION. Which means you barely need to look after it, a lot of our clients are on yearly maintenance appointments to ensure the hair doesn’t grow through. It is better explained with the process.
The process of laser hair removal?
The skin absorbs the laser heat in the hair follicle. The hair follicle is the root where the hair is attached, this is where the hair is anchored into the dermal layer of the skin. Traditional hair removal like shaving and plucking just remove the hair itself and so the hair follicle just produces another hair in its place.
With laser hair removal the follicle absorbs the heat, and the follicle is destroyed meaning a new hair can never grow from there again. Your body does develop new hair follicles over time, but it takes a long time. Which is why our clients only need annual appointments to keep on top of the new hair follicles. Many of them never shave or treat their hair with traditional methods again.
