Unfortunately, permanent hair removal — whether on the body or the face—is impossible. Somebody holds the view that there's no one method that'll remove all unwanted hair permanently. "Rather, the correct term is ‘permanent hair reduction," and, "The majority of hair growth is driven by hormones, so if the balance of hormones changes, this can lead to stimulation of hair follicles resulting, in new hair growth." The statistics show that laser hair removal is one of the useful ways to remove unwanted hair. So let’s talk about 10 things to learn about this way.

Don\'t wax

You will be instructed to shave a few hours before your first treatment, but make sure you don't pluck or wax because the laser needs to target pigment within the hair follicles.
