Does laser hair removal really remove body hair?

Say goodbye to unwanted hair, shaving, and waxing with the latest laser technology.

Do you feel insecure about your beauty due to a hairy body?

Trust the laser technology to get rid of unwanted hair and the feeling of insecurity. The laser removes 95% of hair.

Myths about laser treatment

Some myths and rumours about laser hair removal technology must be clarified and freed from ambiguities as follows;

  • It is a myth that laser does not entirely eradicate hair. But the fact is that continuous six sessions, as your doctors recommend, are essential for permanently and thoroughly removing every strand of hair.
  • The rumour that hair regrows is unacceptable because it happens with only 1% of people having coarse hair. However, dermatologists suggest 2-4 more sessions for the expiration of coarse hair.
  • Another myth is that laser hair removal is not for sensitive parts. In contrast, the laser works for every part of the body with a difference in intensity. For sensitive areas, the aestheticians reduce the laser intensity.
  • The laser does not burn the skin; it only burns the hair. Furthermore, it does not scar the body.
