How permanent is laser hair removal?
Are you tired of the hassle and pain of shaving, waxing, or using hair removal creams? Do you dream of having smooth, hair-free skin without constant maintenance? Laser hair removal may be the solution you're looking for. But how permanent is it, really? In this blog post, we'll explore the efficacy of laser hair removal using the Candela Gentlemax Pro system.
First, let's discuss how laser hair removal works. During the procedure, a highly concentrated beam of light is directed at the hair follicles, which absorbs the light and damages the follicle. This damage inhibits future hair growth, resulting in smoother, hair-free skin. The Candela Gentlemax Pro system is one of the most advanced and effective laser hair removal systems on the market, using a combination of two wavelengths to target hair follicles in all skin types.
So, how permanent is laser hair removal using the Candela Gentlemax Pro Plus system? While it is considered a permanent hair reduction method, it's important to understand that it may not completely eliminate hair growth. The FDA defines permanent hair reduction as "the long-term, stable reduction in the number of hairs regrowing after a treatment regime." In other words, laser hair removal can significantly reduce the amount of hair that grows back, but some hair may still grow in the treated area.
The number of sessions needed for permanent hair reduction varies depending on factors such as skin type, hair colour, and thickness. Most clients require a series of 8-12 treatments spaced several weeks apart to achieve optimal results. After the initial treatments, maintenance sessions may be needed to further reduce hair growth.
It's also important to note that the efficacy of laser hair removal can be influenced by hormonal changes, medications, and other factors that affect hair growth. For example, pregnancy or menopause can cause changes in hair growth patterns, and certain medications can stimulate hair growth. It's important to discuss any medications or medical conditions with your laser hair removal provider to determine if they may affect your results.
In conclusion, laser hair removal using the Candela Gentlemax Pro Plus system is considered a highly effective and permanent hair reduction method. While it may not completely eliminate hair growth, it can significantly reduce the amount of hair that regrows in the treated area. With proper treatment and maintenance, laser hair removal can provide long-lasting results and a smoother, hair-free appearance.
