Is laser hair removal really permanent?

Men and women have been going through hair removal procedures for years some painful some irritating all of then completely inconvenient. Whether your a long term waxes that has to time every event, holiday or night out with a waxing appointment or a shaver who is asked out on a impromptu Sunday day drinking in the beautiful sun shine. Before answering you do the quick  stroke up your pins to check how stubbly they are or quick look under your armpit to see if you can get away with that new sleeveless top you’ve just bought. All of which is going to effect wether you go or how long it’s going to take you to get out!

Waxing and shaving all come with their problems, shaving burns, ingrown hairs, shaving rash, in some of you will develop folliculitis which can occur after waxing and shaving although this is common and not dangerous it doesn’t stop it being uncomfortable nor look awful.

Laser hair removal has been around for some time however compared to its contenders it’s still the new kid on the block. Also unlike its contenders it keeps evolving into a more effective version of its self giving you a better and more effective result.

How it works

Laser hair removal works through a build up of heat, this heat is delivered through laser. The laser consists of 3 separate lasers which attacks the growth in its 3 stages of growth. The Triple wavelength is passed over the area around 7-10 times this builds up enough heat to kill the hair and delay its growth Pattern. Each treatment will need to be repeated on average 6-8 times with 6 weeks in between every appointment. The 6 week break will ensure that all hair has gone through a full growth cycle enabling the laser to effectively attack all 3 stages of the hair growth. 

Once you have finished your last planned session we should have a good idea of wether you will need the odd treatment after or not, this will be based on the amount of which is growing if any at all during the 6 week break. Together with your laser technician you will assess and make the appropriate changes to your treatment plan.
