How Many Months Can Laser Hair Removal Last?
It’s no secret that at-home hair removal methods — like shaving and plucking — require constant effort and upkeep, with many people needing to shave daily (or even more often) to keep their skin smooth and silky. Not only that, but shaving and other DIY hair removal methods often lead to stubble, ingrown hairs, razor burn, and other issues. At GLANZ Aesthetics in Doral, FL, Dr. Linette Rivera offers advanced laser hair removal as a long-term solution for getting softer, smoother, virtually hair-free skin patients can feel confident about. In this blog, Dr. Rivera answers one of the most common laser hair removal FAQ: “How long does laser hair removal last?” Keep reading to find the answer.
Is laser hair removal permanent?
Laser hair removal aims to achieve a significant, long-lasting reduction of hair growth in the areas treated. While some patients experience a complete stoppage of growth, others may have a few stubborn follicles that continue to grow. In other cases, patients may have virtually hair-free skin for several months or even years and then notice sporadic hair growth, sometimes referred to as “stragglers.” Even when hair growth does not stop completely, most laser hair removal patients experience a dramatic improvement in terms of rate of hair growth, density of growth, thickness of the hair, and other aspects, often lasting for 1 – 5 years or longer.
Can laser hair removal be repeated?
Absolutely. Following your initial round of treatment, which may include 4 – 6 sessions, laser hair removal can be repeated in the future to address stubborn follicles, stragglers, or new growth.
What causes hair to regrow after laser hair removal?
There are many factors that may cause the spontaneous reappearance of hair after laser hair removal, like hormone fluctuations, age, genetics, and others. For example, some women undergo laser hair removal at a relatively early age and enjoy many years of silky smooth skin but then notice new hair growth after having children, which may be related to hormonal changes associated with pregnancy. Once the woman has given birth, a repeat round of laser hair removal can often help to restore her initial results.
Where can laser hair removal be used?
Laser hair removal is popular among both men and women and can be used virtually head to toe, helping patients get the clear, smooth skin they desire. Popular treatment areas for Doral, FL laser hair removal patients include:
- Upper lip
- Male chest
- Intimate areas (bikini line, etc.)
