Laser hair removal is now probably the most famous way of hair removal and the most requested cosmetic procedure. Many physicians have been using laser for hair removal for it applies damage or destruction to hair follicles. But is laser hair removal permanent ?
Before we answer the question “Is laser hair removal permanent”, we might need to know first what is laser hair removal.
How does laser hair removal work?
Body hair (or any dark tissue in your body for that matter) contains a substance called melanin. Melanin absorbs more laser (infrared light with very short wavelength) than any other molecules in the human skin. So the purpose is to make the melanin in the hair absorbs enough heat energy from the laser beam, without affecting the skin (which is light and hence low in melanin). And that’s why laser hair removal works better for light-skinned people with darker hair. The hair absorbs the laser and gets burned, but is that all? How different is it then from any other hair removal method?
In addition, more importantly, is laser hair removal permanent.
The purpose of laser hair removal, in fact, is not to burn the hair, but to kill the follicle; the gland responsible for hair production in the first place. Logically, if you demolish the factory of hair, the hair will never grow back. Well that is true, however, one comes to think; how achievable is that?
In most cases regrowth of hair is expected after some time at the area treated; that’s because there usually are some follicles that survived the fire, they might be damaged, but not destroyed. Experiments show that hair starts to regrow within a few months after the procedure, yet it’s much thinner and lighter; and that’s because most of the follicles were killed, and that’s when you’d want to undergo another stage of laser hair removal, or start using another more intensive, and maybe –unlike laser hair removal procedures- painful methods; like electrolysis.
In a nutshell; laser hair removal is not 100% permanent, yet it can safely be considered a long-lasting procedure for hair removal, that damages, if not destroys, hair follicles.
