Laser hair reduction is a popular treatment for unwanted facial and body hair. It provides long-term hair reduction. It is important to remember that ‘permanent hair removal’ is virtually impossible to achieve.
Laser hair reduction is suitable for individuals with darker hairs. The treatment does not work on blonde, red or grey hairs. It can safely be performed on a variety of skin types. Multiple treatments are required as only a small percentage of hairs are in the anagen (early growing stage) of the hair cycle. The reason for this is the laser only targets the actively growing hairs.
Other treatment options such as creams and tablets can be prescribed to support and maintain results.
