How Long Does Laser Hair Removal Last?

Most people have unwanted facial and body hair that they frequently remove through shaving, waxing, and other means. The downside to this regular hair removal ritual is that it can be a time-consuming process and only delivers very short-term results.

Thankfully, there is a more long-term solution to that age-old problem: laser hair removal. It’s a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that has fast grown in popularity in recent years, and it offers virtually immediate results.

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

At Premier Vein & Body by Schwartz, located in Kansas City, we use the Sciton Profile laser hair removal system to eradicate unwanted facial and body hair. The system consists of a handheld device that emits pulses of intense, focused energy in two wavelengths.

The dual-wavelength energy works by targeting the pigments in hair follicles. Once absorbed by the hair, the follicle dies off and sheds. Thanks to the dual wavelengths, your laser aesthetician can customize the treatment according to specific skin and hair types.

One fact to keep in mind is that hair grows at different times on the body. As such, laser hair removal can only target follicles in the active growth stage; each client will need several treatment sessions to achieve optimal results.

The Sciton Profile laser hair removal system boasts a computer-controlled scanner, enabling the Sciton Profile laser hair removal system to deliver uniform coverage for a more comfortable and effective treatment experience.

How Long Will My Laser Hair Results Last?

Laser hair removal offers long-term results compared with shaving, waxing, plucking, and other methods. Most people who have laser hair removal notice visibly sparser hair in treated areas after just three treatment sessions.

The majority of laser hair removal patients require six to eight treatment sessions to enjoy optimal results, with each treatment session scheduled around four to six weeks apart.

Hair grows at different lengths, and it’s virtually impossible to remove all unwanted hair from a specific treatment area in just one session. All unwanted hair is typically gone six to eight months from the first treatment session.

From that point, patients that had laser hair removal treatments can enjoy near-permanent results. Laser hair removal doesn’t guarantee permanent results; however, some people find their unwanted hair never grows back.

For those who do experience hair regrowth, the hair that returns is often finer and lighter in color than the hair that was initially there.

Benefits Of Laser Hair Removal

Arguably one of the most significant benefits of laser hair removal is how there’s no need to regularly shave, wax, pluck, or treat unwanted hair. It’s an effective treatment option for people of all skin types and shades.

A Comfortable Hair Removal Solution

Another advantage of laser hair removal compared to alternatives is there is little to no discomfort. The Sciton Profile laser hair removal system keeps the skin cool as unwanted hair follicles are targeted.

In comparison, shaving can cause rashes and even bleeding, resulting in blemished skin. Waxing is painful, as is plucking, and hair removal creams can sometimes cause unwanted side effects.

Precise Treatment Area Targeting

The Sciton Profile laser hair removal system only targets intended treatment areas. It doesn’t damage surrounding hair or skin – an ideal solution for treating intimate areas.

A Long-Term To Permanent Solution

Laser hair removal can be a permanent solution for removing unwanted hair if follow-up sessions are scheduled. We advise each patient on the frequency required and formulate a tailored treatment plan for each client.

Multiple Treatment Areas

One selling point of laser hair removal is how it can target several areas on the body:

  • Face (except around the eyes)
  • Chest
  • Back
  • Shoulders
  • Neck
  • Bikini Area

Am I A Candidate For Laser Hair Removal?

You could be an ideal candidate for laser hair removal if you’re looking for a long-term method of eradicating unwanted body hair. The Sciton Profile laser hair removal system works well on all skin types and tones.

Candidates for laser hair removal should also have realistic expectations of the treatment as it offers long-term results when combined with follow-up treatment sessions.
