Laser hair removal is not permanent. Laser hair treatment involves heating the hair follicles, which, in turn, makes the hair follicles dormant for a long period — much longer than waxing or shaving. Even though laser hair removal procedures are advertised as a type of “permanent” hair removal treatment, laser hair removal treatments only reduce the number of unwanted hairs on a given area of the skin: they do not permanently remove unwanted hair. While you cannot remove 100 percent of all hair follicles, laser treatment can reduce the number of hair-producing follicles by 75 to 90 percent.
According to research, laser treatments are most effective in patients with dark hair and light skin tones; however, they can be used successfully on all skin types. Also, for laser treatments to be effective, the American Association of Dermatology recommends that procedures need to be performed by a board-certified dermatologist.
