Laser Hair Removal

In this proccess a laser is used to "kill" the hair root.
It can be performed anywhere that hair grows, excluding the eye area. But it works best on people with dark coarse hair and light skin. It generally works poorly on blondes and redheads, African Americans, or people with dark tans.
Laser hair removal should only be performed by a licensed professional. It is semi-permanent, and multiple sessions usually produce the best results. The more sessions you have, the more long-term hair removal you will experience.


LASER HAIR REMOVAL - HOW TO DO IT
First of all, you want to find an experienced practitioner, preferably Board Certified in Dermatology. The atmosphere should be clean and professional. Check if any staff members are Registered Nurses, or Board Certified Doctors. Generally the more professional the place, the better. Make sure the practitioner is a lisenced professional, as this is not required in some states.

LASER HAIR REMOVAL VERSUS OTHER METHODS
Laser hair removal is faster and cheaper than electrolysis, but less permanent. You will probably experience some hair regrowth in time. But it is longer lasting than either shaving or waxing, thought more expensive. Be prepared to pay upwards of $1000 for a series of laser treatments.
If you undergo laser hair removal you may experience skin redness and irritation, comparable to a bad sunburn. This is worse in some people and better in others. Blisters and burns may also occur, but are rare. Another rare side effect you may also experience is skin pigment change, which may last up to a month.
