Laser hair removal remains one of the most popular cosmetic laser procedures today. It is a non-invasive gentle technique that removes undesirable hair from most parts of the body. It replaces waxing, shaving, bleaching and electrolysis with minimal discomfort and no downtime. Laser hair removal requires multiple sessions because it only affects actively growing hair, and not all hair follicles are active at the same time. Although blond or grey hair is less responsive, and individuals with dark skin may not respond as well, good results still can be achieved with the appropriate laser device.
Recently home laser devices have been developed to compete with medical lasers, however they are significantly less effective than medical lasers and the level of discomfort is much higher. Despite the slightly higher cost per treatment, medical lasers are more effective with superior long-term results and still remain the gold standard in the treatment of laser hair removal.
