Laser Hair Versus Electroylsis
Laser Hair Removal
Thank you for your question deepseteyes. Laser hair removal can lead to permanent hair reduction after a series of six to eight treatments. Those with light skin and dark hair are the best candidates for laser hair removal. Both laser hair removal and electrolysis provide long-term results, neither is associated with scarring. I am not familiar with pricing for electrolysis; pricing for treatments will likely vary from one region to another. Products containing salicylic acid and/or benzoyl peroxide can irritate the skin. For my patients I recommend avoiding such products for a few days before and after any type of treatment such as lasers, electrolysis, chemical peels, etc. Please consult with a doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!
