Will laser hair removal remove a full beard?

Hi there,

Laser hair removal is a good option for dark facial hair.  At our practice, we use the GentleYag for patients with darker skin types.  Most patients need 5-6 sessions for improvement.  After the 5-6 sessions, most patients need touch up sessions every 2-3 years.  The cost of laser hair removal sessions vary from practice to practice.  It is best to schedule a consultation in order to determine the fees.  It is best not to wax or pluck the hairs out 6 weeks prior to your first laser hair removal session.

Hope this helps!
