For many men and women, unwanted hair has a very negative impact on self-esteem. Unwanted hair, particularly when on the face, can cause patients a high amount of unease. Areas of unwanted hair requiring repeated shaving, such as underarm hair, bikini line hair, and leg hair, have long been sites of other therapies utilized in an effort to remove hair in these regions. For decades, treatments such as waxing, tweezing, or electrolysis, have been utilized. While each of these procedures has its own benefits, none of the aforementioned procedures offers true permanence. Electrolysis, while an accepted procedure for decades, can be painful to some patients, particularly in areas like bikini lines and face. Laser hair removal treatment is a much better option.
