Laser Hair Removal is the most performed treatment in the US and over the past few years has become very popular in SA as well.
It is essentially a laser treatment where highly concentrated light is beamed into the hair folicle. The intense heat of the laser damages the hair follicle, which inhibits future hair growth.
This treatment is specially effective in the small areas of unwanted hair such as armpits, face, arms, bikini lines, legs etc. but it's performed successfully on all parts of the body.
The treatment length depends on the area, a small area such as upper lip can take a few minutes, while a leg can take about an hour.
Laser hair removal removes approximately 80% of the pigmented hair and final results are obtained after 4-8 sessions depending on the area.
Periodic maintanance treatment may be required.
Prices can vary, approximately R300 for upper lip; R400 for underarm; and R2,000 for legs.
