Laser treatment will permanently reduce hair growth with noticeable reduction after the first couple of treatment sessions. We use the term hair reduction rather than permanent hair removal since hormonal changes, ageing and other medical factors, can affect future hair growth. Most people however, experience almost permanent hair removal from a full course of laser treatment.
