What areas can it treat?
Smooth, flawless legs are usually what you imagine first when someone mentions laser hair removal. But this treatment may also be applied to other areas of the body as long as it’s covered in hair. Laser hair removal can be done on the legs, face (including lip area), neck, chest, back, underarms, arms, stomach, and bikini area. This treatment addresses unwanted hair from any parts of the body, in the goal of leaving it smooth and hair-free.
Is it permanent?
Lasers work by directing concentrated light into the hair follicles to stop the hair’s ability to grow without damaging the skin’s surface. During the procedures, it will remove most of the hair in the first few sessions. You may have a few pieces of hair growth but are barely noticeable. However, with the recommended number of sessions, laser treatments can permanently get rid of hair and completely stop hair growth in the targeted areas.
