ARE THE RESULTS PERMANENT?
Many people have the misconception that the laser treatment grants us permanent hair removal. But the the answer is no. What actually happens is that the treatment involves exposing the follicles to heat which results in inhibition of new hair from growing. The hair follicles become dormant for a long time. They do grow but this time around, the hair is much thinner, lighter and lesser. So the procedure only delays the regrowth time and results in a reduced growth.It doesn’t guarantee riddance from the unwanted hair. The method is considered best for people with light skin and dark hair.
