Hii LASER hair reduction is a method of removal of unwanted hair. This can be done on any area of the body as well as the face. There are various laser hair reduction system available in the market like diode system, ND:yag system,Erbium system, as well as IPL system and many more. Any system is is helpful is reducing the hair by 90-95 % completely. Atleast 8-9 sessions are required to completely reduce hair by 95%. Each session is done at a gap of 3-4 weeks each. The response depends on the type of skin that you have and also the darkness of hair. in case of females, we need to rule pf hormonal disturbances due to various conditions like polycystic ovarian syndrome.In such cases you can require a few more sessions. If chosen the right system,or the right skin type,operated by a trained person then laser system is not associated with any side effects. But otherwise few side effects like hyperpigmentation, minitiarisation of hair follicles can occur. Otherwise you can go ahead safely with laser system.
