Which areas can be treated with laser hair removal?

Virtually any area of the skin where a person has unwanted hair can be treated with laser hair removal. The most popular treatment areas include the upper lip, chin, sideburns, full face, underarms, arms, hands, chest, back, shoulders, bikini area, lower legs, and feet. For men earlobes and upper cheeks.

Who’s a good candidate for laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is best suited for people with dark hair. Most shades of brown and black hair respond very well to laser hair removal. People with light hair, particularly those with grey or blonde hair, can still get laser hair removal, but the effectiveness may vary due to the lack of pigmentation. People with red hair may be laser hair removal candidates, but it depends on the shade of their hair and level of pigmentation.

How many laser hair removal sessions are required?

This can vary based on the size of the area being treated and on the individual. Most people need to have 6-8 hair removal sessions to achieve a permanent result.

How often are laser hair removal sessions scheduled?

Laser hair removal sessions are generally scheduled 6-8 weeks apart. The amount of time between treatments is important because it allows the hair to be removed during its various growing cycles.

Is laser hair removal permanent?

Laser hair removal can permanently reduce the amount of hair regrowth, but there may still be a small amount of new roots that are not mature enough to be detected by the laser and may grow in the future. Most clients enjoy dramatic long-term reduction in hair growth in the treated area, and if needed once in a great while they come back for a touch-up.
