Is Laser Hair Removal Permanent?

You love looking your best – but your body hair keeps you from achieving 100% confidence.  That’s why you’re interested in laser hair removal, as you’ve heard it can help you remove unwanted body hair from your face, arms, back, legs, and other areas.  But there’s one question that you need answered:

Is laser hair removal permanent?

While laser hair removal can greatly reduce the amount of unwanted hair, it’s important to realize that it’s not a permanent solution.  Most clients will need yearly touch-ups to keep body hair at bay; however, any hair that does grow back over this time will be thinned and sparse, making it easier for you to maintain a smooth and sexy hair-free look.

What’s more, laser hair removal is a solution for clients who wish to prevent ingrown hairs from constant shaving, waxing, and other hair removal needs.  Laser hair removal helps create a smooth and hair-free look without causing the irritation and bumps that often plague many people.

Laser hair removal is also a great solution for clients who have hyperpigmentation.  While previous generations of hair removal treatments – including electrolysis – made it difficult for clients with tanned skin or hyperpigmentation go through treatments.  Today’s generation of laser hair removal makes it possible for the treatment to target the pigment in the hair shaft, which causes the pigment to die and the hair to fall out.

Please note that gray or blonde hairs are difficult to treat, therefore, patients with extremely light colored body hair should seek other treatment options.

At Beaux Arts Institute of Plastic Surgery in Lanham, Maryland – also serving the greater Baltimore, MD and Washington DC areas – Dr. Nia Banks provides clients with superior results from safe, effective, and gentle laser hair removal.  What’s more, Dr. Banks’ laser hair removal services can be used on anyone, even clients with hyperpigmentation and tanned or dark skin.

As laser hair removal is not a permanent solution, clients should be prepared for yearly touch-ups after receiving full treatments; Dr. Banks usually suggests four to six treatments.  For more information about laser hair removal, contact Dr. Banks at Beaux Arts Institute of Plastic Surgery in Lanham, MD today. Just fill out the form in the top left corner or call (301) 880-7022.
