The easiest hair to remove with a laser is dark, coarse hair on light skin. People who have darker skin and lighter hair will face difficulty because the laser will not be able to target the pigment in the hair. People who have red blonde or gray hairs will not have results that are as people with darker hair.

Laser hair removal treatment kills almost all the hairs it targets but it is very common for the laser to miss some hairs in the treatment area. If you find that the laser has missed some hair then you can go over and get it removed by laser.

Before you go for your Laser hair removal treatment there are a few things you need to take care of so that the process goes smooth. Make sure you steer clear of sun exposure for up to six weeks, as most of the doctors recommend. Sun exposure and tanning may increase side effects. You should also not try tweezing. You can shave as it preserves the hair shaft and follicles. After your procedure, try to avoid too much exposure in the sun and always remember to slap on some sunscreen before you head out into the sun. That kept aside, laser hair removal is a great method for hair removal.
