Laser hair removal is permanent when the hair follicle is destroyed. When the hair follicle is only damaged, the hair will eventually regrow, this is why you need multiple treatments, to make sure that the hair is treated while in its growth phase. Most people can expect some persistent hair growth but with additional treatments the growth will diminish or subside completely. Once this happens, they can opt for more removal treatments.

Electrolysis is done by a professional who places a tiny needle with an electric current in the hair follicle. There are two primary hair removal methods with electrolysis: galvanic and thermolytic.
Galvanic hair removal chemically destroys the hair follicle.
Thermolytic removal uses heat to destroy the follicle.
Electrolysis is best for white hairs or stubborn hairs that laser does not treat. Be sure to find a professional who is highly trained and knowledgeable.
You can get electrolysis on any part of the body.
