Laser hair removal is a safe method of removing unwanted hair. It works by focusing a laser beam at the base of the hair follicle, halting hair growth. Laser hair removal can be used on any part of the body, including the nose and other common problem areas: face, bikini area, legs and underarms.
Laser hair removal is different to the Intense Pulsed Light System (IPL) which uses less powerful diffused light waves. Many professionals choose laser hair removal as it is considered the highest quality, most safe and effective way to remove unwanted hair on visible areas.
Depending on the area being treated, lasering can take between 15 and 60 minutes. The area will need to be treated every 4 to 6 weeks for approximately 8 months to achieve the best results. The skin may appear red or swollen immediately afterwards, however this should reduce over 24 hours.
