Laser hair reduction is a non-invasive technique that uses highly concentrated light to penetrate hair follicles. The intense heat of the laser damages the hair follicle to inhibit future hair growth. Laser hair reduction is effective for most parts of the body.
Because laser hair reduction only affects actively growing hair follicles, it may take several treatment sessions to provide significant hair reduction. Additionally, while laser hair reduction effectively slows hair growth, it doesn’t guarantee permanent hair removal. Periodic maintenance treatments may be needed.
Some hair could be resistant to the laser treatment or grow again after treatment — although the new hair growth might be finer and lighter in colour.
Laser hair reduction costs may be based on the expertise and qualifications of the person performing the procedure, the type of procedure used, time and effort the procedure or treatment requires, and the type of Laser.
