Hi doctor,

I am a 24 year old male. I have hairs all over my body. I need a natural way to permanently remove them at least from my back, arms, neck and shoulders. Will laser help?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • There are two different procedures that can be done; one is called as electrolysis and the second is laser-based hair removal.
  • The electrolysis involves treatment of each and every hair roots and could be painful. The hair loss is usually permanent with the first session.
  • The laser-based hair removal is less invasive and therefore less painful. You may require a couple of sessions to get rid of the hair completely.
