Comments:   I don't think it is true that 1 session will help make so much difference in hair reduction. I can tell by experience. You need to shave for the laser treatment and shaving twice or thrice may actually increase hair growth insead of reducing it. If you go for laser treatment you have to follow through completely ie take as many sessions as it takes for hair reduction. Also get this done from a known professional who has a few references otherwise you may end up damaging your skin.

Comments:   hi tina, maybe things differ from person to person. i had a lot of hair on my lower back and stomach, which was often visible when i wore jeans. i tried waxing, but i developed a horrible rash, so i just let the hair be. then recently i decided to try laser. the back is pretty expensive, so i opted for just a single session, and the hair on my back has reduced dramatically. now very few hair comes, and i wax my back regularly. also, you need to shave after laser only if you intend to go for another session. my back was shaved once, at the laser clinic itself, and after that i didnt need to shave. now i wax my back once in two months, and very little hair is left. i;m pretty sure that different people's hair reacts differently.

Comments:   Laser treatment is failure in my case . I had 6 sessions but after 2 months I got the facial hair again. Better check your testosterone level , correct it by an endocrinologist and then go for laser treatment if u have any. becas correcting the adrenal glands would weaken the roots of the hair and there by it would fall out automatically

Comments:   I agree with this article, there have been a lot of improvements in laser therapy in recent years, especially for those with darker skin. The way the laser works is it seeks out the dark pigment, so there needs to be a good contrast between the colour of your hair and the colour of your skin. The fairer your skin the better really - wear sun block and wait for your skin to be as light as possible. I had a few sessions in 2000 on a very low setting in case of skin damage, after 3 sessions I lost 40% of hair and felt great. Lasers are better now, the darker and thicker the hair the more it responds- the hair on my face was very fine so took longer. I had spots and scars on my face from infected hair follicles and once the hair had gone the spots went to! Sometimes the hair is weakened not killed off and you may get a break out of spots in the place where you had treatment, but if you have another session this sorts the problem out. I definitely recommend it. Make sure to have a nurse do the treatment, not a beauty therapist as you can be burnt by the laser (it happened to me recently with an inexperienced therapist who used too high a setting! but the scars healed well and you can't see them now). You can do in between the eyebrows and the ends of the brows but not underneath the brow because of the risk of eye injury. You need a really good set of goggles for this and the therapist will ask you to hold them in place tight against your eyes. Keep your eyes shut! I have had treatment on my breasts because I had ingrowing and infected hairs and was getting scars (yuck) I needed quite a few sessions to get rid of these hairs but it was worth every penny and worked out cheaper than electrolysis which I also tried but which didn't seem to work. There are lots of places which offer this treatment, but in my extensive experience the best places are laser therapy centres staffed with nurses, not beauty salons with a laser machine, you don't get hard sell off a nurse. It was explained to me that hair grows in cycles and not all hairs are growing at any one time, so only the growing hair gets treated. I was told to expect to do "top up treatments" every year or so, but so far I have only needed to have a couple of sessions every 3-4 years.
