The most common question that patients ask during their laser hair removal consultation is “How long will the hair be gone after my sessions are complete?” There are many factors that contribute to significant hair reduction with laser hair removal, including the type of laser used, the patient’s skin and hair color and existing medical conditions.
The best candidates for laser hair removal are individuals with light skin and darker hair color. Patients with darker skin may require more treatments to achieve the desired results. Some basics facts to keep in mind about hair growth:
• The hair grows in three stages: the growing stage, the transition stage and the sleeping stage.
• The length of each hair cycle is different on every part of the body.
• All hair follicles are in different stages at all times.
• The patients age, gender, ethnicity and genetics all contribute to hair growth.
Individuals with darker skin and those with faster hair growth cycles may experience regrowth before other laser hair removal clients.
