In most cases, laser is not the complete answer to hair removal. It takes electrolysis to eliminate those white or blond hairs that remain (everybody has some) after the dark hairs are gone. For those individuals with predominately blond, white or red hair, laser is not a recommendation.

GentleLASE Hair Removal Laser Therapy
The Candela GentleLASE hair removal laser is one of five lasers that currently have FDA clearance for "permanent hair reduction". GentleLASE effectively removes unwanted body and facial hair. Traditional hair removal techniques such as shaving, tweezing and waxing, provide only temporary relief and may actually stimulate hair growth. Electrolysis, while effective, often requires years of ongoing treatments. All of these methods can result in scarring, allergic reactions, and ingrown hairs. Laser hair removal works by targeting the pigment inside the hair follicle without damaging delicate pores and structures of the skin. Because hair cycles through "growth" and "dormant" phases, and because during the "dormant" phase the follicle has no pigment, at least 2 or 3 treatments will be needed.
