Significant reduction of unwanted body and facial hair can be achieved with laser therapy.  The lasers target melanin pigment within hair follicles, unfortunately this means that only pigmented hairs can be treated.  Because the laser targets hair in its active phase of growth, 5-6 treatments are typically needed for marked reduction.  However, noticeable reduction is usually noted after 2-3 treatments.  Coarse dark hair responds best.  We use the Alexandrite laser for lighter skin tones and occasionally the ND:Yag for darker skin tones.  Great for armpits, bikini area, upper lip, or anywhere else you are bothered by unwanted hair.
