Laser hair removal treatments with a class IV laser will yield significant permanent hair reduction for most people, male and female.
Some people are fortunate to see excellent results after only 3-4 treatments and others may need 10 or more, although rarely.
Certain factors in an individual can affect the success of the treatment such as age, sex, hormone levels, pigment levels in the hair, the number of hair follicles present and certain medical conditions. Female patients with hirsutism may find regular treatments are necessary.
Some areas of the body may also respond at different rates. So whilst 6-8 is may be enough on say underarms, an area with finer hair such as the forearms may require more sessions to achieve good results.
Our laser hair removal price list shows some of our most popular areas for laser hair removal, but prices for any other body area are available upon request.
