Is Laser Hair Removal Permanent?

Laser hair removal is one of the most popular ways to eliminate unwanted hair from your body. It provides immediate and long-lasting results, and it’s nearly painless when performed alongside our Zimmer cooling device. Here are answers to some common questions asked about laser hair removal in Denver.

So, How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

Laser hair removal uses a unique device that sends light directly into the hair follicle. The heat energy from the light destroys the follicle, and the hair falls out in 1-3 weeks. This specialized hair removal technique can be safely used all over your body, from face and neck to arms, legs, back, and chest, as well as more for personal treatments like Brazilians and Manzilians.

Is it Permanent?

For many people, it’s virtually permanent. Because laser hair removal targets the follicle, that follicle can be damaged or destroyed.

Laser hair removal only works on follicles in the growth stage. At any given time, only 30% of follicles are in the growth stage. Therefore, 70% of the follicles are in the transition or resting phase. A destroyed follicle will not produce hair. Also note that as we age, or have hormonal changes, light vellus hair can turn dark and will require treatments.

How Long Does Laser Hair Removal Last?

Any hair follicle that is destroyed by the laser treatment will not grow back. Hair follicles that were not completely destroyed may be damaged enough that hair regrowth is lighter or thinner than before. Space treatments out over 4-6 or 6-8 weeks (depending on the area to be treated) to catch hairs that were missed in a previous treatment because they were in a resting phase.

Does my Skin or Hair Color Make a Difference?

Laser hair removal is effective on most skin and hair types. It does not work on blond, red, light brown, or grey hair. At Vasu Skin Solutions, we have two types of lasers for laser hair removal across all ethnic backgrounds. Tanned skin can cause burns during laser hair removal treatments, so it’s essential to plan for laser hair removal in advance of that summer tan.
