How Long Does Hair Removal Last?
Lets face it, shaving is a drag – especially when you shave the night before yet wake up with itchy, prickly hair. Waxing is painful and a chore, even though the results are a bit longer lasting. If you have had enough, maybe now is the time to consider laser hair removal In Surrey.
How does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Laser hair removal works by damaging the hair follicles under the skin, preventing it from growing back. To accomplish this, a laser, or focused light is used. When properly targeted, the hair follicle will no longer be capable of producing new hair.
How long does it last?
The problem is that a single treatment may not properly hit and target every single hair follicle. When treatment is undergone, not all hair is at the same point within the natural hair growth cycle. This results in many hair follicles not being damaged, and hair growth continuing for these spots. The follicles that are damaged generally no longer produce hair, although in some cases they may be repaired.
To make Laser hair removal more effective and longer lasting, several treatment sessions are needed. For some individuals, this can be as few as 3 or 4 visits, but for others, it may take 8 or even 10 visits. After this, it is recommended to continue to have maintenance visits 1-2 times a year depending on how well your body reacts to the treatments.
So well laser hair removal is permanent in some ways, it is still not without effort. However, the time commitment is much less then constant shaving, and the results much longer lasting and widespread. If you are tired of the razor, and dread wax, then consider having laser hair removal.
