Permanent Hair Reduction
Laser hair reduction is a cosmetic procedure that uses pulsed laser energy to reduce unwanted hair from a targeted area, while leaving surrounding skin unharmed. Common areas on which laser hair reduction is performed are the chin, upper lip, chest, underarms, back, bikini line and legs.
Although there are many temporary treatments, including tweezing, shaving, using depilatory creams and waxing, to reduce unwanted hair, patients seeking more permanent and less irritating/painful methods are frequently good candidates for laser hair reduction. Through what is a safe and usually painless procedure, hair can be reduced from nearly any area of the body (the eye area is an exception because of the possibility of serious eye damage).
