Laser hair reduction

What is laser hair reduction?

If you have areas of unwanted hair that cause you distress, or are just too much effort to manage by shaving, plucking or waxing, laser hair reduction could be the answer.

Intense pulsed light therapy (IPL) and laser therapy are two methods that can achieve hair reduction. They can be used on large and small areas of hair on the body or face anywhere except near your eye.

About laser hair reduction

During laser hair reduction, the beam from the laser or IPL device is focused onto the area of skin that has the unwanted hair. The hair follicle absorbs the light and heats up, destroying the hair with the aim of preventing re-growth.

An individual treatment of IPL or laser therapy will thin out the hair to start with. So, for the best results, a series of treatments is usually required.
