Does Laser Hair Removal Get Rid Of Unwanted Hair Permanently?
When compared with other forms of hair removal like waxing and threading, Laser Hair Removal has been surrounded by a lot of doubts.
For example, when asked about it, a lot of people wonder if Laser Hair Removal is a permanent solution for getting rid of unwanted body hair.
In this article, we’ll help you clear this doubt, but before we do that, let us get to know the process of Laser Hair Removal a little better.
What is Laser Hair Removal?
Backed by cutting-edge technology, Laser Hair Removal or Laser Hair Reduction is a long-term solution for those who wish to get rid of their unwanted body hair.
Compared to the likes of waxing or threading, it’s a lot more effective, comfortable, and pocket-friendly in the long run.
That’s because you’ll be saving up for those countless trips you’d otherwise have to take to the salon for your frequent waxing or threading sessions.
Wondering how Laser Hair Removal does its magic? Wonder no more, because we’re about to tell you just how the magic happens.
How Does It Work On The Skin?
Simply put, the laser does its magic by targeting the roots of your hair follicles. When exposed to the laser, the melanin present inside your hair follicles absorb its light, thereby heating up the follicle.
We know what you’re thinking. “Won’t my surrounding skin get damaged because of the laser?” Worry not, because the laser just reacts with the hair follicles, and not your surrounding skin.
Which brings us to another thing you won’t have to worry about if you opt for Laser Hair Removal, i.e. ingrowth!
Just the thought of them is enough to bring back some painful memories of dealing with them post your waxing session at the salon.
But with Laser Hair Removal, you can wave those pesky little bumps goodbye, as you say hello to the smooothest skin of your dreams!
So now that you know a fair bit about Laser Hair Removal and how it works on your skin, let’s get to the big question you’re here for, i.e. is Laser Hair Removal a permanent solution for hair removal?
Is Laser Hair Removal Permanent?
The short answer is, no! We know you’re confused, but allow us to explain.
After you’re done with your first Laser Hair Removal session, the roots of your hair follicles get destroyed by the laser.
This means that you may see hair growth in the days following your first session, and feel like the laser didn’t work properly.
But don’t worry, because those are just the dead hair roots coming off, and they may fall off on their own in the next 15-20 days.
Sessions are scheduled a few weeks apart, and typically, you’ll start to see visible results after your 2nd or 3rd session.
Moreover, over the course of your sessions, the density and frequency of your regrown hair will come down drastically, making them almost invisible to the naked eye.
So in a nutshell, you will achieve upto 90% hair reduction with skinnsi’s Laser Hair Reduction procedure, in an average of 6-8 sessions.
To summarize, when compared to waxing, threading, and shaving, Laser Hair Reduction is not a permanent, but a long-term solution for getting rid of unwanted body hair, with upto 90% hair reduction in an average of 6-8 sessions.
What To Expect After You Get Laser Hair Removal Done?
Like we mentioned above, you will get upto 90% hair reduction in an average of 6-8 sessions of Laser Hair Removal, with a minimum gap of 4 weeks between each session.
However, touch-up sessions may be needed later which will be done once in the next 3-4 months after your last session, depending on your residual hair growth.
Usually, our Laser Hair Removal sessions last for about 2-3 hours for full body sessions, 1.5 hours for half body sessions and anywhere between 30 to 60 minutes for specific body parts.
While you can go on with your day right after your session, we recommend you follow these tips to make the most of every session.
First up, say yes to sunscreen! It’s not just beneficial during your Laser Hair Removal sessions, but even otherwise when it comes to protecting you from the harmful effects of the sun.
Also, we also recommend that you say no to hot water baths for 24 hours after a session.
Skin reactions are unlikely after Laser Hair Removal sessions, but in case you do get them, don’t worry, because we’ve got you covered! Just apply some calamine lotion or moisturizer 3-4 times a day if you have any discomfort or redness.
