Default Is laser removal permanent?

Okay, I don't know much about laser removal but would like it done on facial hair. Will it be permanent? I hear that sometimes hair can grow back in quicker..so does this mean that laser hair removal just slows the hair from growing back, but it will still grow back?

I'd like to know the answer to this one too. I'm new to laser removal and want to know if you pay once and never have to go back!!

Mostly it is permanent hair removal but some tend to get back hair too but very lightly instead of being that thick and dark.

From what I understand from this forum, it should be permanent if your hair is dark enough for the treatment to be effective.

Ok, I've had it done and this was my experience. I had it done on the peach fuzz on my lip and under my arms. It was not permanent for my lip, because the hair was too light. The hair on my lip grew back with 6 months. It took over a year for any hair to grow back under my arms. It just came back as a few stray hairs. They told me when I got the treatments this could happen. They said, "just come back for a touch up if it does." So, you just go back to have any stray hairs treated in a single session if they come back. It does not require repeated visits.

How long should you leave it from shaving or plucking to make sure that you get an effective treatment? Would a few weeks do it?

For the initial consult: I would wait at least a week after shaving to go to my first appointment. Plucking I'd wait longer because that actually removes the root. You could call and ask the tech doing the treatment what they require.

Once you are actually in laser treatment, they discourage you from shaving. It isn't necessary, because as soon as the hair reappears you should go back for a treatment. They don't allow plucking during the treatment.

That's a good point, mom. Plucking while going through the treatment would be a bit like cheating yourself out of what the laser is supposed to be doing for you.

Hey, yes! Well said Molly. I hadn't thought of it that way, but you are cheating yourself out of the benefit of the treatment by removing the hair beforehand.
