Statistics Show Less Frequent Hair Removal – Laser Effect?

hair removal frequencyA survey looking at the frequency of female hair removal treatments in the UK has found that women could be going less frequently for hair removal treatments. 

In 2013, the average hair removal treatment was every 3.8 weeks but in 2015 women went every 7.2 weeks, considerably less frequently.

The reasons for this are not stated. As the data is based on ‘visits’ for hair removal and the vast majority are understood to be waxing, it is possible that more women are managing treatment at home between sessions.

However, it is also suggested that many women who previously had waxing every 3-4 weeks no longer need it as they’ve had laser hair removal, giving them longer lasting results, so that they do not need to have hair removal appointments as frequently, if at all.

Laser hair removal is different. Shaving or sugaring take the hair away at the skin’s surface. Waxing rips hair out from the follicle so that it has to completely regrow, giving longer lasting results. But laser hair removal works by completely destroying the hair follicle so that the individual hair can’t regrow. That means that results are going to last much longer. As a course of treatment progresses and more follicles are ‘destroyed’, so less hair comes through between treatments.

By the end of a course, the majority of hair has been eliminated, so that only an occasional shave is needed to get rid of any strays.
