How Effective is Laser Hair Removal Procedure?

December 9, 2022 by Dr. Sandeep Bhasin

Are you undergoing hair removal procedures like shaving and waxing every month? You must be spending more time and money on this, isn’t it? Are you looking out for a long-lasting treatment? It is a human tendency that whatever treatment we opt for, we always think about whether it is effective for a long time.


Hence, this blog article focuses on explaining the long-lasting effects of laser hair removal Procedures in Delhi, in addition to setting realistic expectations about the same.

Why Do People Opt For Laser Therapy?

By regularly undergoing hair removal procedures such as shaving and waxing, people do not find long-lasting results. Moreover, once you start these procedures, you will have to repeatedly undergo them. Otherwise, the hair growth will be comparatively dense and fast. At the same time, you cannot follow these procedures, especially in sensitive areas. Above all, going through that pain every now and then is not something that anyone desires. That is where you should start thinking about a permanent solution to this problem. Laser therapy is one such hair removal treatment.

But if you ask whether it is a permanent solution, the answer is different. You should understand that hair growth is a natural process. It is not possible to stop its growth once and for all, but of course, the speed of hair growth can be stunted for sure. Hence, dermatologists describe this laser procedure as long-term hair removal rather than permanent hair removal.

What Happens Exactly in the Laser Hair Removal Procedure?

Hair follicles are present beneath your skin, from which the hair comes out. In laser therapy, the laser beam hits the skin, damages the hair follicles with its heat, and stops hair growth for a prolonged period of time. This duration will be comparatively longer than shaving and waxing.

To achieve the best results, you will have to go through around 6-8 sessions, depending upon the density of hair growth. The overall laser hair removal procedure will take 9-12 months, depending on the hair and skin type.

Hair undergoes a growth cycle that includes:

  • Resting phase
  • Shedding phase
  • Growth phase

Hair in the resting phase will regrow more slowly compared to the hair in the shedding and growth phase. In this resting phase, hair is not visible to the surgeon who conducts the laser therapy. Hence, the person must wait until the hair regrows before removing them again. That’s why laser treatment is conducted for an extensive period of time in multiple sessions.

Remember that there is no such hair removal procedure that can damage every single hair follicle. Hence, there is a fair chance of hair regrowth. Ultimately, it is your hair surgeon who will inform you about the number of sessions depending on your hair growth pattern.

You might be wondering whether it makes sense to opt for laser hair removal treatment. It makes sense provided you are ready to spend more money and time.

How Effective is the Laser Hair Removal Procedure?

Laser therapy is costlier compared to shaving and waxing, but it is worth it.

Laser treatment is comfortable and pain-free.

Laser therapy lasts for more time compared to any other temporary methods. Though the time duration varies among all individuals, laser treatment is the better choice for sure.

As already mentioned above, you will experience speedy and denser hair growth after undergoing any temporary hair removal procedures. But in the case of laser treatment, hair growth will become very less. You will notice this significant difference after your first session. You will hardly get back your normal hair growth.

If you have a light skin tone, the laser treatment will lighten your hair color. Hence, even if your hair grows, it will become unnoticeable.

Above all, laser treatment will be the ideal choice for sensitive areas such as the underarms and bikini areas. Compared to other temporary methods, it is possible to control the intensity of the laser beam. Hence, this therapy is safe to use in sensitive areas.

Does Hair or Skin Color Have Any Effect On the Outcomes of Laser Therapy?

Dark-haired people and people with light complexions may need fewer sessions compared to others. Comparatively, dark-skinned people and people with light hair may have to undergo more sessions, since their hair growth post laser treatment is comparatively higher.

Especially dark-haired people with a light complexion will achieve the best results from this laser hair removal treatment. The reason behind this statement is the pigment contrast that can easily target the hair with the laser, pass the beam into the hair follicles, and destroy the follicles successfully [1].

A research article published in 2013 revealed that laser beams that produce longer wavelengths work very well on dark-skinned people [2].

What Eligibility should an Experienced Dermatologist Have for Laser Hair Reduction to be Effective?

Only a well-experienced dermatologist can choose the right type of laser with the right intensity to target the hair effectively. The dermatologist should have a thorough knowledge of hair follicle anatomy and physiology, principles and safety measures of laser usage, an understanding of laser action in tissues, and substantial preoperative preparation to optimize the efficacy of treatment with minimized side effects.

In a nutshell, if you are looking out for a long-lasting solution to fix your unwanted hair growth issue, it’s better to opt for a laser hair removal procedure. Though this procedure is comparatively costlier, you can fix the hair removal problem within 6-8 sessions. If you turn back and see, you would have noticed spending the same amount of money in bits by selecting other temporary solutions. So, how long are you going to continue this same strategy? Think differently!
