Laser hair removal is not a new technology that's out there right now. Laser hair removal that's been around for about 12 - 15 years at this point.

But, what it does, it actually is a light filtration that bypasses the top layer of the skin and kills the follicles from underneath. And what they try to do is, kill the Anagen stage or the growth stage.

So, what does that mean to you? You have to come once for every four to six weeks. You need approximately six to eight treatments. Some people need touch-ups.

Also, when you're dealing with the human body, there's the hormone factors that you have to keep in consideration. There's also dormant hair follicles. So, you should get about eighty percent clearance from your six sessions.

I would say, make sure you go to a professional. Just don't go by price when you deal with this. Same thing when you get your hair cut, you don't just go, "Oh, they have scissors". Make sure you actually research where you're going, to the best place, that will give you the best results available.

One of the greatest things about laser hair removal is that, it actually makes your skin smoother. And, it gets rid of any ingrown hairs. I always tell people, they're like, "When should I do laser hair removal?" And actually, also if you're on a budget. I always say, if it effects your everyday life, that's when you say, "You know what? I'm going to make sure that's not there".

So, if it's on your face, or you get ingrown's on the bikini area, like I did. So, I'm just fessing up here, everybody has problems with it. Just take care of it and make yourself feel a lot better.
