Is laser hair removal permanent?
Laser hair removal has fast become one of the most effective options for permanent hair reduction. No laser clinic can claim 100% hair removal, as some hair will always strive to grow back. Re-growth can be affected by hormones and other biological factors which can vary from person to person.
Will laser hair removal get rid of ingrown hairs?
Laser can decrease the chance of experiencing ingrown hairs. When there is no hair in the follicle, there is less chance of an ingrown hair occurring.
Can all hair colours be treated with laser hair removal?
Using our medical grade equipment, our fully trained laser technicians can target most hair colours, with the exception of grey, pale red, white and white blonde.
