How fast does hair grow?

Generally, hair on the scalp grows faster than body hair. It takes about a month for hair on the body to grow its maximum length. But, hair on the scalp grows up to more than five inches in a year. Hair also grows faster in men than in women. Various causes affect hair growth like genetics, hormonal imbalance, medicine intake, and diet. However, the speed of hair growth slows down as you grow older.

The growth of hair is a complicated process that begins at the root of the hair follicle. The hair strands depend on the blood for nutrients and slowly rise above the scalp. The sebaceous glands help moisturize them and keep them healthy.

What are your options for removal?

The most common body parts on which people undergo hair removal are hands, legs, armpits, and face. There are many options for hair removal. They usually last around a few months, while some give permanent results.

Shaving and waxing only yield short-term results. However, if you want long-lasting or permanent hair removal, you might want to consider one of the following options:

Electrolysis

This treatment involves passing shortwave radio oscillations through flimsy needles inserted into the hair follicles. This method destroys the follicles and stops further hair growth. Only a certified electrologist or a dermatologist will perform this treatment properly. Electrolysis is the most effective solution for long-term hair removal. However, you might require numerous follow-up sessions.

Some people may require follow-ups every week or so. Besides, electrolysis is highly expensive compared to most hair removal treatments. But electrolysis works on all parts of the body and suits almost every skin type.

People often experience side effects like soreness, irritation, or pain on the skin. Moreover, in very rare cases, you may suffer infections or keloidal scars.

Laser Hair Removal Treatment

This treatment too offers permanent results. They too destroy the hair follicles to prevent hair growth. This treatment uses a high-heat laser beam to do so. The laser hair removal can also be done on any part of the body, except in and around the eyes. However, this method works best on fair-skinned people who have dark body hair.

Laser treatment too, like electrolysis, needs several follow-up sessions to achieve lasting results. However, this depends on the span of the area of hair removal. You may need up to six sessions for the complete procedure. The laser removal is also very expensive and costs about $200 per session.

However, this treatment lasts for many months, or even years. Often, the hair regrows thinner and lighter in shade. But even this treatment does not assure permanent hair removal.

Similarly, laser treatment also comes with a few side effects such as irritation, soreness, redness, or even pigment alteration. In rare cases, it causes skin blisters or scars.

Prescription Creams

As mentioned earlier, electrolysis and laser hair removal treatments are very expensive. If you want to avoid burning a hole in your pocket, you may consider prescription creams. However, make sure to consult your dermatologist before using them.

The most common ingredient in these creams is eflornithine. You should apply the cream twice a day for a month to the desired area. It reduces the enzymes on the skin which cause hair growth.

However, this treatment only lasts for a couple of months. After that, you might have to redo the process again. The price of the cream for one month’s use is only around $50. Moreover, this treatment is most suitable for facial hair removal in women. It may also cause side effects like inflammation, rashes, or even acne.

Laser hair removal procedure

Laser hair removal is very popular around the world. It involves using a hot laser to destroy hair follicles on the skin. This hinders further hair growth. However, it takes around 6 sessions to show considerable results. But laser treatment is painless and enhances the texture of your skin too.

Following are the steps involved in laser hair removal:

  • Firstly, the doctor will cut your hair to a minimum height
  • Around half an hour before the treatment, the doctor applies medicine on the skin to make it numb
  • The doctor may alter the laser beam to suit the thickness and texture of your hair
  • He will ask you to wear spectacles to protect your eyes from laser damage
  • Then, he applies a gel on your skin so the laser beam can penetrate easily
  • After the procedure, he may offer you cold-packs or anti-inflammatory medicines for your comfort
  • The next session occurs in around six weeks from the procedure
  • The doctor may ask you to take the sessions till your hair stops growing completely

What are the pros and cons of Laser Hair Removal?

Following are the pros of using laser hair removal treatment:

  • Works on almost all parts of the body for pain-free hair removal
  • Removes multiple hair follicles in fractional time
  • Especially affects thick and dark hairs
  • Does not permit the risk of ingrown hair
  • Does not affect other parts of the skin
  • Leaves your skin soft and radiant
  • Listed below are the cons of laser hair removal:
  • Even a single session costs a lot
  • Requires multiple sessions to achieve the desired result
  • Often causes temporary hyperpigmentation

Electrolysis vs. Laser Hair Removal – which is better?

Electrolysis and laser treatments are quite similar in their results. Moreover, they both involve destroying the hair follicles to halt hair growth. However, laser removal removes multiple hairs at a time. But electrolysis treats one hair at a time and takes a lot of time. On the other hand, electrolysis requires fewer sessions than laser treatment for better results.

However, electrolysis is a more painful treatment than laser treatment. It also needs more post-treatment care and causes more side effects than laser removal. Hence, on a comparative basis, laser hair removal is more effective and needs negligible care after treatment. But it is a bit expensive.

Is laser hair removal permanent?

Although laser removal destroys the hair follicles, sometimes the hair grows back. You can undertake a few more sessions to drastically reduce hair growth or even stop it completely. However, this depends on your hair type and the experience of your dermatologist.

Most often, it is difficult to destroy all the follicles. So the hair may grow back. But you can reduce it with multiple follow-up sessions.

Is laser hair removal safe?

Laser hair removal treatment is mostly very safe. To avoid complications, do not undertake laser treatment around your eye area and when you are pregnant. Moreover, if you suffer any harsh side effects due to laser treatment, consult your doctor immediately. But this happens very rarely. The treatment does not assure permanent hair removal. So, ensure follow-up sessions to stop hair growth fully.

Having said all that, body hair growth is completely human. You need not worry about having them. However, if you wish to enhance your appearance, you may resort to hair removal.
