Is laser hair reduction permanent?
A lot depends on your genetics. Certain people respond faster and require less treatments while others have more resistant hair follicles will require full course of treatment.
At MD Laser & Cosmetics, we do not require you to commit to a course. Based on the result of first treatment, we can determine number of treatment required to achieve result.
One of biggest misconceptions about laser hair removal is to assume that once you completed your laser hair removal treatment it is 100% permanent and hair will never grow again. One can still grow new hair but it will not be as thick as prior hair. Certain medications and medical conditions, i.e. Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, hypothyroid will cause one to produce excess hormone DHT, causing continuous hair growth.

Laser hair removal is very different from waxing. Waxing simply pulls the hair from the hair follicle during removal process, while leaving a healthy hair root and another hair will start growing soon after.
