Laser Hair Removal: How Long Does it Last?
If you’ve been considering getting laser hair removal, you may have a lot of questions, especially if you don’t know much about the procedure and how it works. As a matter of fact, one of the most common questions people ask when it comes to this procedure is how long the results last. Here at Wellsprings Medical Spa, our team of specialists want to answer this question and provide you with additional information on this revolutionary procedure.
While we wished the answer to this question was simple, the amount of time your results will last will entirely depend on how often you get the treatment done as well as how many treatments you’ve had done. In general, results from laser hair removal will last much longer than its alternatives (shaving, waxing, etc.) but the length of time these results will last relies on how committed you are to getting rid of your unwanted hair.
The answer to how long the results will last also depend on where you are getting the treatment done. Some parts of the body grow hair faster than others, so this will have an effect on the results as well.
On average, laser hair removal results will last for a few months. With the right amount of spaced out treatments, however, results can last anywhere up to two years prior to the last treatment you had done. That’s a really long time without unwanted hair!
Does Hair/Skin Color Affect LHR’s Longevity?
While the tone of your skin and hair can affect the initial results you receive from LHR during treatment, post-treatment results will last for the same amount of time, as the hair (regardless of your skin colour + hair colour) will often grow at the same speed no matter what.
We advise against getting this procedure if you have a lack of contrast between your skin+hair, as the results may not be as effective as you want them to be. This usually means people with fair skin & blonde/grey hair, or those with dark skin & dark hair.
Although this information may come as unfortunate news to many, technology is advancing more and more every day and specialists are coming out with laser hair removal devices that work on your hair regardless of your skin + hair colour.
