Laser Hair Removal Glossary


Lasers for removing unwanted hair on the face, legs, arms, underarms, bikini line, back, chest, etc. can selectively target dark, coarse or even brown hairs. 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, gray or light red 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 30 minutes
