What is laser hair removal?

It is the process of removing hair through exposure to pulses of laser light that destroy the hair follicle preventing hair regrowth. This method of hair removal has been around for about 20 years before it became commercially available in 1996.

How does laser hair removal work?

Diode Laser hair removal is a non-invasive procedure that makes use of a concentrated laser light beam to remove unwanted hair. 

During the treatment, a laser emits concentrated light that is absorbed by the melanin (pigment) in the hair. The light energy converts to heat, which then damages the tube-shaped sacs in the hair follicles skin that produce hair. 

This damage delays and inhibits future hair growth.

The average person needs about 8 – 12 laser hair removal treatments in my experience depending on the technology and laser used. Laser hair removal is most effective for people with light skin and dark hair as the absorption of the laser light is at its optimum.

Is laser hair removal painful?

With the correct device, laser hair removal should be completely pain-free, at least my experience was. There are different lasers in the market, so when it comes to the sensation or pain-scale, I cannot say for sure. I know some cheaper options either don’t work or have been uncomfortable experiences for some.

Again, does laser hair removal hurt?

What we do know is that for most people laser hair removal does not hurt and at the skin clinic / salon I visited, I only felt a warming sensation as the laser moved across my skin, in fact I kind of found it soothing.

How long does laser hair removal last?

So, is laser hair removal permanent? The short answer – it might be. 

Laser hair removal damages the hair follicles so that it cannot produce any more hair (regrowth). However, it only destroys them indefinitely. Hormonal changes, pregnancy, certain medication and a few other factors may cause the hair to grow back over time. This does not mean it will, but the human body is forever changing as we age, and certain factors could possibly stimulate hair regrowth. 

This is rare and if it does reappear, it’s not to say it will be as if starting from scratch, so definitely still worth the investment and a cheaper long term solution.
