There is actually no such thing as permanent laser hair removal. So if somebody tells you they can do that, I would run away. Most places will tell you that there is a permanent hair reduction that can be done with laser these days. It's really great. A lot of people do get 100%, but we certainly can't guarantee that. It works best on dark hair. It does not work on blonde or gray hair unfortunately and it's a pretty quick and painless procedure these days. I would only go to somebody who's a licensed and experienced laser technician because we are using lasers to heat up the skin, to kill that hair follicle and so you could be burned if not used by the right technician. We also can do both light and dark skin people with the multiple lasers that we have. It's a very quick procedure these days. It can be done on the lunch hour. We usually suggests a course of three to six treatments to get as much of the hair follicle destroyed as we can and you can do almost any area, nothing is off limits. You would not be surprised if men and women have unwanted hair that they just don't want to have to deal.
