Permanent Laser Hair Removal
Almost every one of our clients asks "Why isn't permanent laser hair removal completely permanent?"
Though laser hair removal has been approved by the FDA for permanent hair reduction, don't let this mislead you, Laser will not eliminate 100% of the hair, it will result in a long-term and effective reduction of hair growth.
In order to completely understand you will need to understand the hair growth cycle.
The quick and easy answer is that laser is only effective during initial growth phases and only certain hairs will be affected by a treatment at any certain time, and to be 100% percent effective you need to catch every single hair in its initial growth stage (which is very difficult to do).
If you are interested in learning the details keep reading and I will help you discover the details.
So what does all of this mean to you?
In simple terms, the hairs that are in the root stage (anagen hairs) on the day of treatment will be treated successfully and be permanently disabled.
The reason is that the laser only targets the blood supply and the cells in the area. The hairs treated in any other phase will NOT be permanently disabled.
