Laser Hair Removal Is Temporary or Permanent? | Lady After Treatment

Laser hair removal is booming in popularity with so many people taking part and educating themselves about the benefits as well as the technological advances making it an easy option for all skin types. 

Celebrities and influencers are promoting laser hair removal, gushing about how quick, easy and pain-less it can be!

Consultations usually take around an hour depending on how many places you’re having done and only a few minutes on areas as small as your upper lip. And with results being noticeable within two consultations, once people start with their laser hair removal journey, they realise the long term benefits it can have.

What is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal is a medical procedure that uses a concentrated laser to remove your unwanted hair.

The light energy is converted into heat, this damages the hair follicles in the skin which produce the hairs. The damage inhibits or delays the future hair growth. 

You can get this highly beneficial procedure done in all areas of the body where the hair has enough pigment to attract the light from the laser. Many women are already using laser hair removal and as the market grows men are realising it is as beneficial for them too! This combined with the updated technology allowing any skin tone from light to dark to receive treatment, means we are seeing an exponential rise in its use.  

Overall Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

The benefits of laser hair removal are extraordinary, making you have an easier experience in the efforts of having smooth skin.


Lasers can selectively target the naturally light brown to black body hairs so you don’t have to worry about the missing of any spots.

So, gone of the days where you’d be shaving and miss a patch because you were in a rush to get ready. Or even the pain of epilating became too unbearable to carry on that you were left with only part of your leg smooth!


The process is so fast and easy, with each pulse of the laser only taking a fraction of a second whilst treating multiple hairs in the same pulse you don’t have to worry about it being painstakingly long.

Long term investment

For many, a razor is a daily thought. Imagine never needing to use or buy one again and at the same time, do your part in saving the world from throw away razors! All men and women alike consider, for various reasons, the requirements to get rid of hair. When you weigh up what your options are; not needing to purchase, think or consider the need to shave or wax again it starts to become very clear. That coupled with receiving long term perfect looks it is certainly worth the investment!


Now this is where we answer the question, is laser hair removal permanent or temporary? The simple answer, not straight away but it is long term! From the beginning, most patients have permanent hair loss in their specific targeted areas after an average of three to seven sessions with very little hair expected to regrow.

For those seeking a reduction in hair due to medical (irritation) or other non-medical reasons you can choose between a permanent or temporary reduction in hair.

You could say that laser hair removal can be both temporary and permanent, and the treatment offers you the best of both worlds!
