So, how long does laser hair removal actually last? This is a very important question to consider before diving in and getting laser. Afterall, if we decide to pay a pretty penny for laser, we will definitely want it to last for a long time. The answer of course is: it depends!
People usually receive laser hair removal to remove hair on either one or both parts of the body. These areas include the face and body. The amount of time laser will last will depend where the patient decides to receive the laser hair treatment.
The good news? Laser hair removal performed on the body tends to last a very long time. For some people, results can even be permanent. Even better news, any regrowth that does occur will most likely be very sparse and fine. The reason hair regrows after laser treatments is due to the way laser treatments work. Laser hair removal only removes hair that is in the active part of the growth cycle (anagen phase). There are however 3 other hair growth stages at any given time. This is why it is important to receive a series of laser treatments (6-8 for most patients) in order to make sure all hairs in the anagen stage are removed.
As far as the face is concerned, some people report that it is more likely for hair to regrow on the face after a series of laser treatments. This is most likely due to normal androgenic hormonal fluctuations and the effect they have on hair follicles. These hormones include testosterone and DHEA and can cause hair regrowth. This is especially relevant in women during pregnancy and postpartum, as well as when women begin to enter perimenopause and menopause. Therefore, it is less likely that laser hair removal will be permanent on the face. However, one can expect laser hair removal to last on the face for up to 10 years. After 10 years, some patients decide to get a few retouches over the years. Similar to regrowth on the body, any hair that does regrow on the face will more likely be lighter and finer.
While there is a chance hair may grow back after laser hair removal, laser hair removal is still considered an excellent investment. This is because any hair that does regrow will typically be finer and lighter. In addition, one can still expect results to be mostly permanent.
