Laser hair removal is an established and safe method of permanent hair removal that is suitable for most areas of the body and face.
Which areas can be treated with full body laser hair removal?
- Laser hair removal can be applied to hair on your arms, legs, underarms, bikini line, back, shoulders, buttocks, upper lip, nipples, beard line and chin – pretty much anywhere!
- Laser hair removal is suitable for light and dark skin
- Laser hair removal is suitable for both men and women.
Your practitioner will always carry out a patch test before hair removal to make sure you are suitable for the treatment.
How long does full body hair removal take?
Laser hair removal treatment is safe and effective on both small and large areas of the body. The amount of treatments required depends on the parts of the body that need to be covered. Areas such as the upper lip can be treated in just a few minutes, whereas legs or back will require more time.
To achieve the best possible results, laser hair removal is carried out at different times during the hair growth cycle, so your treatment plan will depend on the kind of hair growth that you have. We estimate that each area will require 6-12 treatments with 30-90 minutes per session, depending on the area of the body. Your practitioner will answer any questions you have about the laser hair removal process during your initial consultation.
The advantages of laser hair removal
Laser hair removal is by far the most effective and efficient way to reduce hair growth permanently. In fact, it takes 6 hours of laser hair removal to keep legs smooth versus 178 days of shaving!
Most people report significant long-term hair reduction after only a few sessions. In addition, as laser hair removal destroys the hair follicle underneath the skin rather than on the skin surface, you won’t have to worry about annoying, unsightly ingrown hairs – or wait for the surface hair to regrow so you can treat it again.
In addition to the precious time you’ll save, you’ll also enjoy cost savings in the long-run. Razors, creams and waxes are increasingly costly and need to be replaced regularly. Plus, they take up a lot of room in your travel bag!
Laser hair removal is very safe and usually causes only mild short-term discomfort. It’s suitable for most people, whether fair or dark skinned and is often a better option than shaving, waxing or creams for people with sensitive skin.
