Does Laser Hair Removal Really Work?

Laser Hair Removal is a technique that involves the use of laser beams to remove unwanted hair. This technique is seen as the permanent solution for people who want to remove hair growing in certain locations they do not find appealing. Unlike shaving, waxing, and other temporary methods used to remove hair, laser hair removal provides a permanent solution by damaging the hair follicles located in the affected areas; and up to 3 laser treatment sessions may be required for permanent hair removal. Laser hair removal must be carried out by an experienced person due to numerous complications that may arise from misuse.

Yes - Stopped shaving after 1st treatment
5 stars5 stars5 stars5 stars5 stars

I Used to shave my underarms every day. After my first treatment, I stopped shaving. All my razor bumps are gone and my skin is so soft and smooth! I’m doing my legs next. It’s worth every penny, which wasn’t a lot of money. I went to an independent medical spa vs a laser hair removal chain. I heard they are just huge rip offs.

I had 25 treatments by 4 different laser places, American Laser Center in Atlanta Ga was one place. I have pale skin and very black course hair . It didn’t remove any of the hair but instead made the growth much much worse. The growth is Massive now.

No - Wish I Could Sue

I went to American Laser Center in Pittsburgh for treatments every (approx) 7-10 weeks from August 2006 until April 2009. I still have the hair. They said I was an ideal candidate because of my fair skin and dark hair pigment. They said that if the treatments didn’t work in 6 treatments, the warranty would cover the next 2 years of treatments. I went for each one until I exhausted the time. I figured I had put in this much effort, I may as well continue. All I wanted was the hair gone. I probably would have paid more, had it worked. I have gone through emotional and physical pain from this and lost thousands of dollars. I really wish I could at least get my money back.

No - Not worth the money
2 stars2 stars2 stars2 stars2 stars

I purchased a laser hair removal package to get rid of my under arm hair. I went religiously for over two years and had countless treatments and it didn’t work. I was told that I was an ideal candidate because I have fair skin and my hair is lighter in color. All the treatments did was make the hair slightly thinner in texture but I still have to shave every day.

I had my back zapped. It cost about $2,500. It was very, very painful and I still have hair on my back. The company went broke and so the warranty was useless.
