Pipe Dream or Reality? Is there a permanent hair removal method?
For so-called permanent hair removal, you can use the salon laser hair removal method. The costs of this treatment are relatively high but it offers long lasting results.
Laser sends light impulses to growing hairs. The melanin, which is responsible for the pigmentation in the hair, absorbs the light, which is converted into heat and directed towards the hair follicle. That encourages the hair to enter its resting phase. Between sessions, it sheds naturally and new growth is inhibited. Since only hairs in the growth stage can be treated this way, a number of sessions are required to reach a complete hair removal, depending on body part, hair density and hair type.
In contrast to shaving or epilating you can significantly reduce hair growth over time with laser. You can expect at least six sessions, four weeks apart. However, a guarantee of completely permanent hair removal does not exist even with laser. It can still come to isolated regeneration of hair roots after some years, so that 1 to 3 other laser treatments are necessary. Generally, laser is less effective for fair hair with a low level of melanin.
