Laser hair removal is safe for people of all ages. However it is un-advisable for teenagers to undergo laser hair removal as their system of hair growth is not fully developed. Young people that are not finished growing will develop new hair as they grow.
The laser can only remove what is present and does not prevent hair follicles from regenerating.
If you start laser hair removal at a young age, more treatments will be required to maintain the results which can be more expensive in the long term.
It may be advisable to wait a few years before beginning treatment to get the maximum benefits.
If you are in any doubt we offer a free consultation with our qualified nurses before any treatment is started.
