Laser permanent hair removal is very popular because of its speed and efficacy.
Smooth skin – laser hair removal
Generally speaking if women don’t have any hormonal dysfunctions and/or diseases but just want to be beautiful by removing some unwanted hair, permanent hair removal with laser could be the best option.
Many celebrities choose laser permanent hair removal for unwanted hair as it is considered the highest quality, most safe and effective method for removing all hair from visible body areas.
LASER HAIR REMOVAL advantages
Effective for permanent hair removal in all needed areas of the body – face, leg, arm, underarm, bikini line, abdomen, back.
Very precise method of permanent hair removal – lasers can selectively target unwanted hair leaving the surrounding skin undamaged.
Best speed for permanent hair removal – each pulse of the laser takes a fraction of a second and can treat many hairs at the same time. Small body area (upper lip, chin) can be treated in less than a minute, and large area (legs, back, abdomen) could take up to one hour.

LASER HAIR REMOVAL disadvantages
After laser procedure women could have some redness in the skin which is completely normal and generally settles within 24 hours. Protecting your skin from the sun is essential to avoid any darkening caused by increased pigment in the skin called hyperpigmentation.
Very rare some women could experience side effects after laser sessions. The following is the list of possible complications:
Redness and/or irritation;
Itching during procedure;
Pain, tingling or feeling of numbness (in case of equipment with cold spray);
Crusting/scab formation (on ingrown hairs);
Purpura or bruising (purple coloring of the skin) on tanned areas;
Temporary pigment change (hypopigmentation or hyperpigmentation).
