In which areas is the result better?
The legs, underarms and bikini area are areas where the results from Laser hair removal are usually more immediate. The face may need a little more time due to some hormonal burden. Also the results are more immediate in women as men have a greater amount of androgens.
How many sessions are needed for laser hair removal?
The number of sessions needed usually ranges from 6 to 7, sometimes more sessions may be needed in the facial area, the final number of sessions needed is also determined by the color of the skin and hair, as well as its thickness.

Is it a safe method and how long does it take?

How is the skin after laser hair removal?
