Laser hair removal is a very convenient way to permanently eliminate or reduce unwanted hair on the body or face. With laser hair removal in Los Angeles, CA, the results are superior to waxing, electrolysis and razors; it leaves the skin soft, smooth and silky and it does it with minimal downtime and minimal discomfort.
Who is a good candidate for laser hair removal?
- If you have unwanted hair on your face or body
- If you are looking to an alternative to shaving or waxing
- If you have light skin and dark hair
Those people with light skin and dark hair find the process to be more successful than those with dark skin and light hair. Dark hair absorbs the light from the laser better and light skin is a better transmitter of the laser effect to the hair follicle.
