Areas for Hair Removal
Facial Hair Removal
Many women suffer from unwanted facial hair, particularly in the upper lip and chin. Laser hair removal is a safe, quick and effective solution for those who are interested in facial hair removal. Because the areas being treated on the face are typically smaller, laser facial hair removal tends to be relatively quick, taking anywhere between 10 and 15 minutes per session.
Laser Body Hair Removal
Laser body hair removal is usually a more involved procedure than facial hair removal due to the larger surface area. Not all hairs grow at the same rate, as some hairs are in a resting cycle while others are still growing. Therefore, more than one session may be needed to ensure that the laser treats all body hair in its growth cycle.
Laser hair removal of the bikini line or pubic area is a relatively quick procedure, taking 15 to 30 minutes per session. This area of the body may require four to eight laser treatments in order to become hairless.
Thick or excessive chest hair can be a problem for some men. Laser hair removal of the chest area is an effective solution for many men facing this issue. It may take four to six sessions to remove completely, each session lasting approximately one hour. Laser hair removal may not last forever, but the chest will be smoother for a longer period than other methods such as shaving or waxing.
A back with excessive hair can be a source of embarrassment for some men. Laser hair removal of the back is often the best solution for this difficult-to-reach area of the body. Laser hair removal treatments can remove back hair in a series of treatments. Each session lasts approximately one hour and generally takes five to eight sessions for hair to be removed.
Laser hair removal of the legs is a more convenient solution to smooth silky legs. Each session takes approximately one hour for both legs, and after about four to eight sessions your legs will be silky smooth.
Most women shave their underarms on a daily basis. This can be tiresome and annoying for some, especially when dealing with the constant stubble. Laser hair removal is an excellent alternative, and because the area is small, the laser treatments are completed very rapidly.
Most patients are very pleased with the reduction of unwanted hair and smooth, silky skin. While results may vary, touch-up treatment sessions are typically needed only once a year or less. However, most patients experience long-lasting, beautiful results.

Risks And Side Effects
There is little to no risk in laser hair removal. Typically a cool topical numbing cream is applied to the surface area prior to treatment. This reduces any discomfort from the laser. Most patients describe the feeling to be like a rubber band snapping against the skin.
Afterwards the treated area may feel slightly tender but no significant discomfort is involved. It is advised to stay out of the sun and avoid hot baths or saunas for the first 24 hours following your laser hair removal procedure.
