Is laser hair removal really permanent?


Laser hair removal is a popular and effective method of removing unwanted hair growth. At Skincenters we work with the Lutronic Clarity 2. This is a fiber laser which works with two wavelengths (alexandrite & ndyag) to safely treat any hair and skin type. The laser emits a concentrated beam of light which is absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in the hair follicles. As a result, the hair follicle is also destroyed along with it and thus no new hair growth can take place at that location.

Is laser hair removal really permanent?

In permanent hair removal, the hair follicles of existing hairs are completely destroyed and a hair reduction of 80-90% can be achieved after a certain number of sessions. Lasered hairs can therefore not come back, but this does not mean that new hairs can never grow again from new follicles. Often these hairs are much thinner and lighter than the hair growth before the treatment was started. So you will also definitely never go back to the original hair growth. 

To continue to enjoy the lasting results and to outsmart new hairs, we recommend a maintenance visit once a year. The possible new hairs can also be removed completely using the Clarity 2 laser and you can enjoy another year with your smooth legs, armpits, bikini, etc!
