Laser hair removal is just one of the ways men and women can reduce the amount of hair they have on the face, legs, arms, underarms, etc. People who are tired of shaving and waxing can find that the amount of time they use to get rid of unwanted hair is dramatically reduced after laser hair removal treatments. Similar with other cosmetic procedures, it is important to understand the treatment so you are satisfied with the results.

Patients are often drawn to laser hair reduction when they are tired of shaving, waxing, and plucking. These methods are not permanent, with hair growth occurring within a day to six weeks. For a longer lasting method, laser hair removal is recommended. Although several treatments are needed, hair growth can be stopped for up to six months.

Men and women with sensitive skin will be happy to know that laser skin removal is safe for them. The procedure is fast and the pain is minimal. Many people compare the pain to being snapped with a rubber band. Pain can be minimized by using numbing cream before the procedure starts. If you have tried electrolysis you may want to find something less painful that provides extended results – something offered by laser hair removal treatments.

If you have light skin with dark hair you will see the best results. There are lasers available that can help stop growth in blonde hair but it still does not work as well as those with dark hair. It is best to speak with a professional cosmetic surgeon that has experience working with these lasers and owns the equipment. Do not even consider getting laser hair removal treatments in a run down clinic with a doctor who rents the necessary equipment when an appointment is booked for the procedure. A professional cosmetic surgeon can discuss the price and advantages laser hair removal provides to men and women. They will also discuss if you are an ideal candidate.
