What is Laser Hair Reduction?
Almost our entire body is covered with hair. Most of it is fine and pale, however, we almost all have darker, coarse hair in places we wouldn’t want or expect. It may be a question of aesthetics or hygiene; in any case, this excess body hair is often considered as embarrassing and bothersome, especially in places like legs, bikini line, neck, arms and armpits, chest and back.
Laser hair reduction is becoming more and more mainstream with women as well as men; it is one of the most popular aesthetic treatments in practices all over the world. No one really wants to have more discomfort, ingrown hair and irritated or infected skin, which is the usual consequence of shaving, plucking, waxing ... and it has to be repeated over and over again.

How does Laser Hair Reduction work?
Laser hair reduction is a much faster and more efficient procedure than most other possible treatments. Laser light targets hair follicles and eliminates or significantly impedes hair from growing back.
The deep penetration of Nd:YAG laser ensures it reaches even the deepest follicles, while its low absorption in all skin types makes sure the surrounding tissue is preserved. This guarantees safe, fast and effective hair removal, even in the darkest skin types, without the epidermal damage other light-based treatments inherently cause.
The procedure is quick and largely pain-free and you will be able to return to your normal activities immediately.

What can I expect after my Laser Hair Reduction?
Because hair grows in cycles and not all of body hair is in the same stages at a time, it takes a few treatments for a significant reduction. The outcome also depends on hair quality, number of hair follicles, different metabolism and hormonal level of each individual, but it usually takes only four to six treatments to remove the majority of hair.
