Laser hair removal

Laser hair removal is a great solution for permanent hair reduction, therefore it does not permanently remove all the hair from the targeted area. It works the best on dark and thick hair, therefore you are a good candidate.

Laser hair removal is a viable option to remove hair under the chin. A series of treatments is required to achieve maximum reduction of hair. Good luck.

Laser hair removal on chin

Laser hair removal on the chin is successful for thick, dark hairs. If you have a dark skin type, you need to make sure a 1064 laser is used. It will take 6-10 treatments to be effective and touch ups as well.

Laser hair removal

Laser hair removal targets the pigment of the hair segment that is in the hair follicle. At any given time, approximately 70% of hair follicles will be in the active or "growth" phase - and these are the ones that will be essentially permanently destroyed by an excellent hair removal laser - without injuring the skin, when well performed.  8 weeks later, of the remaining 30% of surviving hair follicles, approximately 70% of those 30% can then be destroyed to yield 90% removal, and so on. With our system, the Nordlys Hybrid, it is best if the area is freshly shaven so that the energy absorption from the hair removal devise, is concentrated at the follicle. This type of devise works best with darker hair on lighter skin.  Hope this helps!
