Does hair grow back after Laser Hair Removal?

NO, is the short answer. Laser hair removal does not cause hair to grow thicker; in fact, the opposite is true, laser hair removal causes hair to grow thinner and finer.

Laser hair removal is one of those innovations that people who want to remain body hair free are always grateful for.

After all, when you have a procedure that can free people from having to wax or shave regularly, you know it's going to be insanely popular.

Laser hair removal as a technique and procedure has been around for a few years now, but there are still quite a few misconceptions about it. These misconceptions can range from hair growing back after pregnancy. It is not suitable for darker skin and even for hair growth that is thicker after laser hair removal.

Hair growth after a series of laser hair removal treatments

The goal of laser hair removal is ideal, no hair growth at all. This ideal scenario is the sum of many different factors, such as the effectiveness of the treatment, the person's body reaction, etc.

In fact, people who have successfully completed their laser hair removal series often say that hair growth is extremely minimal to none at all.

An occasional laser hair removal may be needed every few months to speed up small growth, but it's still much better than having to shave daily.

Hair grows back thicker after laser hair removal

So where does the idea that hair gets thicker after laser hair removal come from? This is a misconception. Laser hair removal will not make hair grow back thicker or denser. In fact, those who have undergone treatment claim the opposite effect; each treatment is expected to show a 10-25% reduction in growth. Not only that, but there is also a significant reduction in hair density; thickness and even growth rate per subsequent session.

Clinical studies have shown that users of IPL laser hair removal begin to see less hair after just three sessions. That's about a month and a half.

After 4 - 6 treatments, hair regrowth begins to become finer and lighter. After 6 treatments, hair follicles have been deactivated and will stop all types of hair growth.
