It is important to understand not everyone would be considered a ideal candidate for laser hair reduction treatments as lasers work directly on color targeting pigmentation of both the hair and skin. This is why laser reduction treatments may be limited to showing only a reduction in the coarseness of hair on people with light complexions and dark hair. Once the pigmentation of the hair and skin becomes lighter, laser no longer recognizes the hair and the finer lighter hairs will still remain. Laser hair reduction treatments are not recommended for areas of the body with tattoos. Laser will reduce the colouring of your tattoo by 75%.
