Is Laser Hair Removal Permanent?

Jun 18, 2013

Many people with unwanted body hair wonder if laser hair removal services offered by dermatologists actually work. This video explains just how effective laser hair removal is.

Skin care centers remark that laser hair removal is approximately 98 to 99 percent permanent. The laser energy used in laser hair removal targets only hair follicles that are in an active growing state. Because hair follicles can be in any of four different states at any time, laser hair removal cannot achieve total hair growth cessation after only a single treatment. Because hormone activity may induce the creation of new hair follicles, individuals who have undergone laser hair removal may need subsequent treatment sessions as well.
