Laser Hair Removal Glossary


Lasers are useful for removing unwanted hair on face, legs, arms, underarms, bikini line, back, chest, etc. Lasers can selectively target dark, coarse hairs while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged. Each pulse of the laser takes a fraction of a second and can treat multiple hairs at the same time, as for the older method, Electrolysis is single hair removal. But is still beneficial for white light hair.

Small areas – such as the chin can be treated in less than 5 minutes.

Medium areas – (underarms) can be treated in less than 15 minutes.

Large areas – such as the lower legs, may take up to an 30 minutes
