When Will Hair Grow Back After Laser Hair Removal?


Once you make the decision to ditch razors and undergo laser hair removal, you understandably never want to look back. While laser hair removal can certainly provide long-lasting results, some men and women do experience a regrowth of hair at a subsequent point. Fortunately, hair growth after laser hair removal is usually much finer, slower, and more sparse than it originally was. Furthermore, touch-up laser hair removal treatments can help keep your skin consistently smooth and virtually hair-free. At Beautiful Skin Denver, our team of aesthetic specialists performs laser hair removal with the advanced Harmony XL PRO® laser for the most comfortable, efficient, and effective experience possible. Read on to learn more about what you can expect after laser hair removal, including when you may notice new hair growth and what you can do about it.

How does laser hair removal work?

The Harmony XL PRO laser delivers targeted energy to destroy active hair follicles, rendering them unviable. During treatment, the cutting-edge IN-Motion™ system ensures that the laser is continuously moving for the most complete treatment possible, and built-in cooling technology enhances client comfort and prevents overheating of the skin. Common treatment areas for laser hair removal include:

  • Face
  • Chin
  • Neck
  • Back
  • Abdomen
  • Underarms
  • Legs
  • Buttocks
  • Pubic area

Am I a candidate for laser hair removal?

Modern technology makes laser treatments safe and effective for a wide range of skin types, though there are some clients who may not qualify for laser hair removal. Generally speaking, the best results from laser hair removal are achieved on clients with fair skin and dark hair. During your initial consultation for laser hair removal in Denver, we will evaluate your skin tone and determine if you may be a good candidate for treatment.

How many laser hair removal sessions will I need?

Many clients notice a reduction in their hair growth after the first laser hair removal appointment, but a complete round of treatment typically involves a series of about 6-8 sessions. This allows all hair follicles to be treated during their active stage, as dormant hair follicles will not respond to treatment. Clients with particularly stubborn and/or coarse hair growth may require additional treatment sessions to achieve their desired outcome. It is important for clients considering laser hair removal to understand that it is not always possible to stop hair growth completely. However, the vast majority of clients who are considered good candidates for laser hair removal experience a dramatic reduction in the rate, thickness, and density of their hair growth and – in some cases – a long-term pause in growth altogether.

Will hair grow back after laser hair removal?

Some clients experience new hair growth after laser hair removal, which can occur from several months to several years following treatment. Hair regrowth after laser hair removal is almost never as thick or dense as the client’s original growth. Still, we understand the desire to restore your original outcome. With a repeat round of touch-up laser hair removal, most clients are able to further reduce or stop hair growth and enjoy additional years of smooth skin.
