Is Laser Hair Removal Permanent?

Is Laser Hair Removal Permanent?

Laser hair removal treatments deliver permanent results. This treatment aims to destroy the hair follicles that produce unwanted hair and, in doing so, slows and eventually disables hair growth altogether. Once you undergo the necessary number of treatments required for your treatment area, you can expect to live hair-free permanently.

Laser Hair Removal Frequently Asked Questions

How Does It Work?

A series of treatments can help permanently eliminate hair in your area of concern. Laser hair removal uses laser energy to heat the hair follicles that are producing unwanted hair in your treatment area.

By heating the hair follicle, the laser damages it and renders it unable to produce and grow more hair. Since there are hundreds of hair follicles per treatment area, you may need several sessions to achieve your hair-free goals because not every hair follicle is in an active state of growth at the time of treatment.

How Many Areas Can I Treat?

The sky is the limit when it comes to removing unwanted hair from your face or body. Wherever you have unwanted hair, our laser treatment can effectively eliminate it. Some patients have one area concern others want to treat multiple areas. With time and a commitment to the process, you can eliminate unwanted hair anywhere on your body.

What Are the Most Common Treatment Areas?

The most common treatment areas that patients choose to treat during their sessions include the:

  • Legs
  • Arms
  • Bikini area
  • Underarms
  • Face
  • Upper lip
  • Back
  • Chest

If you want to treat an area not listed, inform us during your initial consultation so that we can determine whether or not this laser will help meet your needs.

How Long Does Each Session Take?

It doesn’t take long for the laser energy to target, heat, and destroy your hair follicles. For that reason, treatments are quick and only take a few minutes to complete. Once they’re over, you can resume your normal daily activities.

You can expect your treatment to take as few as 10 minutes for smaller areas and 45 minutes or less for larger areas. The total treatment time will depend on how many areas you choose to treat and the size and location of those areas.

Is It Painful?

This treatment is painless. Unlike waxing and plucking, which do cause a significant amount of pain, this treatment is completely comfortable. You won’t need any numbing cream to make it through treatment, but instead, you can lay back and relax as a technician performs the necessary processes to help target your unwanted hair and help eliminate it for good.

What Kind of Laser Do You Use?

We use the Aerolase laser at our office, which has been voted the number one laser for hair removal. This laser can perform many different skin care treatments and address different concerns, hair removal being one of them. It is such an effective option because it can treat any skin type and tone.

It uses innovative technology that effectively treats your area of concern without any pain. It works on all different skin types and delivers some amazing, noticeable results. When you schedule treatments at our office, you can rest in the fact that you’ll be treated with the best laser treatment in the industry that has become the gold standard for laser hair removal.

The Aerolase Process

This particular laser is so effective because it generates heat and directs it to your hair follicle. That heat is then sealed within the follicle, which helps increase the temperature to effectively destroy it. It uses a professional-strength 808nm diode laser to target each of your hair follicles.

After treatment, the hair follicles will shrink in size, and the disabled hair will slowly fall out. Any remaining hair will appear very light in color and soft in texture, and eventually, those follicles will lose the ability to re-grow hair permanently.

The Aerolase Difference

Not only does this laser system use innovative technology to deliver quick, efficient, and comfortable laser hair removal treatments, but it can also treat far more patients than other hair removal treatments currently on the market. In the past, laser removal treatments were typically reserved for those with light skin and dark hair.

Most lasers need that type of contrast to deliver the most effective results. However, the Aerolase laser has the ability to treat fair skin and lighter hair as well as tan skin and darker hair. Regardless of your skin type or color, we can help you reach your hair-free goals in quick, comfortable, and effective treatment sessions.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

Different areas of the body require different treatment plans. If you choose to address areas of the face, such as the upper lip, you can expect to undergo four treatments with one week between each. If you want to address unwanted hair on your legs, you will need to plan on six to eight treatments with one week between each.

For areas like the back, plan on four to eight treatment sessions with a week between each. If you want to treat your bikini zone, underarms, or arms, you will need to schedule approximately four to six treatments with one week between each to achieve optimal results.

Can I Combine Treatments?

We know that you lead a busy life, and you don’t have time for multiple appointments throughout your week. For that reason, we offer same-day services so that you can undergo a laser hair removal treatment as well as other cosmetic or anti-aging services like fillers and Botox injections, among others.

During your consultation, be sure to alert us of any additional treatments you are interested in so that we can add them to your treatment plan and help you achieve all of your aesthetic goals in one quick appointment.

What Are the Benefits of Hair Removal Treatments?

If you’ve been considering laser hair removal but have been putting off scheduling an appointment, there’s no time like the present. Once you do, you’ll love your results and wish that you had begun this process sooner than you did. It offers so many different benefits, which is why so many patients have turned to this treatment to finally reached their hair-free goals.

They Remove Unwanted Hair

After you undergo the necessary number of treatments to effectively eliminate your unwanted hair, you won’t have to worry about shaving, waxing, plucking, or using messy depilatory creams again. You’ll be able to enjoy hair-free skin, and you’ll no longer have to deal with nicks, cuts, razor burn, or ingrown hairs.

They Save You Time and Hassle

Once you eliminate unwanted hair for good, you’ll have plenty of extra time. You won’t have to spend any more time shaving, waxing, or plucking. You’ll never again have to experience an awkward or embarrassing situation out in public where you realize that you forgot to shave.

Additionally, you won’t have to plan your outfits around whether or not you shaved your arms or legs. You won’t have to pack a razor when you go on trips but instead can enjoy all the benefits of hair-free living.
