How Long Does Laser Hair Removal Last?

Are you tired of the hassle that comes with shaving and waxing? Do you want to be able to throw on shorts or a sundress without really worrying about body hair?

If that’s the case, you’re probably a good candidate for laser hair removal!

This treatment uses laser light energy to target and destroys hair follicles at the root. Once these follicles fall out, the hair grows back in, but at a much slower pace. Eventually, and with enough treatments, hair regrowth slows down to the point where it might feel like that hair is never coming back/

But is laser hair removal really permanent? And if not, how long does laser hair removal last?

Is Laser Hair Removal Really Permanent?

Laser hair removal isn’t permanent, although it can certainly feel that way. 

That’s because laser hair removal can cause hair follicles to take anywhere from six to twelve months to grow back to noticeable levels. This usually occurs anywhere after six to twelve treatments, depending on how your body responds to laser hair removal.

Once you’ve reached this regrowth stage, you’ll only need occasional laser hair removal treatments to maintain your silky-smooth skin.

Will My Hair Grow Back After My First Laser Hair Removal Treatment?

Yes, your hair will grow back after your first laser hair removal treatment – but it won’t regrow as quickly as when you shave or wax. 

That’s why your second laser hair removal treatment is usually scheduled anywhere from three to six weeks after your first session.

Am I a Good Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?

You’re a good candidate for laser hair removal treatments if you have fair-to-medium skin, as it’s difficult for the laser to target hair follicles against dark skin tones.

At What Age Can I Get Laser Hair Removal Done?

Clients can get laser hair removal treatments as young as 14 (with parental approval).

*Individual results may vary.
