Laser hair removal is one of the only non-invasive hair removal procedures that guarantee either permanent/near-permanent results or a reduction in thickness and regrowth of hair in some other areas, such as the face. The outcomes one achieves with laser hair removal depend on several factors, including the hair growth phase at which the hair is being exposed to the treatment. Hair growth occurs in four stages (anagen, catagen, telogen, and exogen). Anagen is the stage at which hair is initially growing, and it is during this phase that the laser treatment is able to vaporize the hairs that are at the root and the surface of the body.
Since every area of our body has hairs that are at different stages of their lifetime, several sessions are required to ensure that every single one has been vaporized. In between sessions, hair can be spotted at the treated areas, these are ones that have yet to be treated. Once the sessions are done, regrowth of hair on the body is unlikely, and if it does occur it will be extremely fine hair. On the face, the results may lack lifetime permanency, however, hair will not grow back for long periods of time, up to 10 years or more.
The reason that hair might grow on the face as opposed to the body has to do with hormonal fluctuations, more specifically, the androgens that restimulate hair follicles and cause hair to grow back in certain facial areas. As a woman goes through menopause, the levels of estrogen drop in their body, and this might also cause hair regrowth on the face as well. The best way to prevent these mentioned regrowths is by regular touch-ups that will ensure that the permanent results are seen reside.
