Laser hair removal is a noninvasive, cosmetic procedure done to eliminate unwanted hair from the face and body.
For some, laser treatment on the body provides permanent or near-permanent results, while others may notice a significant reduction in the amount and thickness of hair that regrows over time.
With that said, here we have answered a few of the most common questions that we often hear from our clients while getting their laser treatment in Kolkata.
Laser Hair Removal: Is It Permanent?
Hair removal from destroyed hair follicles is permanent. However, after going through laser hair removal treatment, you can expect to see some hair in the targeted area to grow back.
Over time, you can treat the area again to reduce the regrowth of the hair. Also, you can continue the treatment to eliminate all hair permanently.
Now whether the hair regrows back or not depends on a few factors including the type of hair that regrows and the skill of the person removing the hair. Therefore it is always advisable to get laser treatment in Kolkata from licensed dermatologists.
The good thing is: that most people notice that when their hair regrows after laser hair removal, the hair is lighter and less noticeable than before. This is because the laser has successfully damaged the hair follicles even if it fails to destroy it.
When the hair regrows it is possible to treat it again. So people who want to get rid of all their hair may need to undergo several sessions.
Also in some cases, the hair may be too light, short or resistant to treatment. In such cases, you can choose to use other hair removal methods, like plucking stray hairs.
Does Hair Or Skin Colour Make A Difference In Laser Hair Removal Treatment?
Skin laser treatment works best on people with light complexions who have dark hair. This is because of the pigment contrast – which makes it easier for the laser to target the hair, travel into the follicles and destroy the follicles.
People with darker skin tones may need a few more laser hair removal sessions compared to a light-toned individual.
To permanently remove the hair, the dermatologist must be knowledgeable on how to target the hair follicles and target the right type of laser. Therefore it is always advisable to choose the right laser treatment in Kolkata that works for your skin type.
Will Repeated Sessions Of Laser Hair Removal Treatment Eventually Destroy Hair Growth?
When it comes to laser treatment in Kolkata, they are generally sold in packages of two sessions or more. To get rid of your hair completely you may need a total of 12 sessions or more.
Following that, the need for touch-ups should be minimal. Some people may require semiannual treatments at first while others may not even need a touchup for 5 years or longer.
How Long Does Laser Hair Removal Last?
If the hair follicles are destroyed completely, the laser hair removal is permanent. But when the hair follicles are only damaged, the hair will eventually regrow.
Now the amount of time it takes for the hair to regrow depends on the person’s unique hair growth cycle. Some people may have their hair grow back faster compared to others. Hair that is in the resting phase will grow back more slowly than hair that is in another phase.
For most people, you can expect hair regrowth within a few months. But once your hair starts regrowing, you can opt for more removal treatments.
