With the required number of courses of procedures, the effect is durable.
From practice , we observe patients who have stable effect when hair is no longer growing or single hairs grow, but not in all areas where laser hair removal was performed. It's all very individual .
Health and beauty!
Unfortunately, today there is not a single laser method that would allow you to forget about extra hair forever. But diode laser hair removal came closest to solving the problem. Its fundamental difference from depilation is that it destroys not the hair itself, but the follicle from which it grows. Therefore, the effect of it lasts a very long time. If you undergo a course of procedures, over time, only 10% of the follicles can recover. This means that several fine hairs may grow in the laser-treated areas, which will have to be removed about once a year or less. For most patients, the result lasts 5-10 years and more depends on many factors, it is better to consult a specialist.
In short: no, because the laser does not kill hair forever, but only puts them into sleep mode. How long the laser will last - no one will tell you for sure, but they can grow again from the slightest hormonal jump (pregnancy) + prophylaxis is needed every six months and until the end of life)
I'll tell you my story about efficiency: I went to the armpits and a bikini for half a year (6 times), as a result, he just lightened my armpits, and 15% went away from the bikini, which is why I was very disappointed with the result. The master honestly told me only 6 times that at least I paint them with paint, all the same, they are not dark enough for me and only electrolysis will help me. Indeed, after 6 procedures, all my hair REALLY went away
In connection with the above, I advise the girls to find an electrolysis specialist in their city, but the cost will be the same as the laser, but you will be sure that the hair will go away, and will leave forever, and also do not repeat my sad experience of throwing money down the pipe
Elena is absolutely right. Laser hair removal, in principle, does not belong to the methods of hair removal forever, despite active advertising and informational confusion on the Internet. Therefore, even the question itself is incorrect. Laser hair removal has been developing very actively in recent decades and has significantly advanced in technology, and several types of laser are already used in hair removal! You can read more about the theory of laser hair removal at the link https://electra.in.ua/opisanie-protsedur/lazernaya-epilyatsiya/. As for practice, so far the results and the durability of the effect are not so unambiguous. Everything is very individual. As you know, the laser is most effective on thick, absolutely black hair and does not work at all on thin and unpigmented hair. In the case of all intermediate states, hair is removed partially (thinned out) and (or) temporarily. The temporary period can be from 1.5 months to several years. This means additional and regular correction will be required.
Depends on your hair. One session is not enough for anyone. There are times when 3 sessions are enough, and sometimes 7 sessions are not enough. Also, remember that laser hair removal is a temporary hair removal method . And as you correctly wrote in the post above, only electrolysis is truly effective. And according to the FDA, only electrolysis is the only permanent hair removal method in the world.
Well, as for the fact that laser hair removal is enough for 5-10 years - for my practice of laser hair removal, nobody has had enough for 5 years. The longest term is 1 year. Of course, there are advantages to laser. But I'll tell you about this later in other posts.
Laser hair removal has been on the market for a long time, so it was possible to conduct research and find out how durable and effective this method of hair removal is. The study lasted 18 months, during this period the hair follicles could go through several cycles of growth and falling asleep. However, during this time nothing of the kind happened, which confirmed the complete destruction of the bulbs in the case of diode laser hair removal. However, it should be noted that in any tissue of the human body, including the skin, there are stem cells. They, under certain circumstances, can give rise to the formation of a new hair follicle. In women, this can happen due to a sharp drop in female hormones and the growth of male hormones. In this case, the appearance of single hairs in hormone-dependent areas is possible. These include, in particular, the pubic region, the labia, the white line of the abdomen, the areola, and the upper lip. In general, during the observation of patients for the entire period of the existence of laser hair removal (which is about 10 years), a number of patients may experience the growth of single hairs. But in most cases, if hair removal is done with modern devices, the skin remains smooth for many years - from 5 years or more.
Very much depends on the specific skin and the characteristics of hair growth in a particular person. Of course, with long-term exposure and regular visits to the salon, you will see the effect, but, in my personal experience and my requirements for the area where I did, the effect is zero, a little longer than after wax or sugar, but grow less right the first time doesn't start. I'm sure you will find someone who adores this method for getting rid of hair the first time. There is simply no comparison with the effect of electrolysis.
