How Long Does Laser Hair Removal Last?

Let’s face it: the last thing you want to do with your free time is shaving, waxing, and plucking. And the stubble that comes back in a day after there is a pain.

Whether you’re removing fuzz from your upper lip or shaving your legs in preparation for the beach, hair removal can be a real hassle. Perhaps that’s why laser hair removal remains one of the most popular non-surgical cosmetic procedures in the United States, as it helps minimize time spent shaving, waxing, and plucking.

But exactly how much time will you save? How long does laser hair removal last?

Laser Hair Removal Results: What to Expect

It’s a common myth that laser hair removal eliminates body hair. How it actually works is that it kills the follicles that hair grows from and slows down hair regrowth to the point where you won’t see any new fuzz for months or years. Hair doesn’t permanently go away, but it does mean that you’re able to seriously scale back your shaving and waxing efforts.

Here’s how laser hair removal works: the laser heat energy targets the root of the hair follicles and heats them up to the point where the follicle falls out. Other hair roots grow but at a slightly slower rate.

Eventually and with enough treatments, hair regrowth is significantly slowed to the point where clients can enjoy smooth, hair-free skin.
