Does Laser Hair Removal Remove Hair Permanently?

Laser hair removal in Calgary is a long-lasting form of hair removal that damages or destroys the hair follicle, leaving you with smooth and soft skin.

But the question remains: does it remove hair permanently? Let’s look at some commonly asked questions about laser hair removal in Calgary:

Does laser removal completely remove hair?

Yes it does. After the first session, you will have zero hair on the area of the treatment. Hair growth will occur again between 3 to 8 weeks after the session. The number of hairs that grow will significantly reduce as time goes on.


But, does it remove hair forever?

Complete hair removal depends on many factors, such as the type of hair that regrows, your body type and age. It also matters where you get your laser hair removal in Calgary, as the professional will have an impact on treatment.

However, over time, it is possible to completely remove the hair on the targeted area. It will require several sessions, and yearly touch-ups to ensure that you remain hairless.

In many cases, you will experience zero hair growth after completing your sessions. Even if the hair does regrow, most people find that it is lighter and less noticeable than it was before.

Sweet, what does the treatment feel like?

You will experience a mild stinging sensation over the treatment area. If you’re receiving treatment in a sensitive area, your expert will apply a gel to help smooth it over.

What should I expect post-treatment?

You shouldn’t shower or bathe immediately after laser hair removal. You shouldn’t exercise or conduct activities that make you sweat either as your skin is exposed. Doing so, may increase the growth of bacteria and cause an infection in the treated areas.

Book me in!

Not so fast, before your treatment, you should shave the hair off. Not all of it, just the top layer, leaving the hair follicle in the skin ready to be lasered out.

By providing answers to these questions, we hope to make your laser hair removal a fun, relaxing and easy process. More importantly, you can enjoy a hairless body for years to come!
