Because it is a laser system, the treatments can’t be done around your eyes. But aside from that, virtually all other areas are ideal for hair removal.
The laser light impulses are attracted to the dark follicles of your hair that lie beneath the surface of your skin. Because only the follicles are targeted, no surrounding tissues are damaged. Over time and with multiple treatments, those follicles do fall out. Each time they grow back, they come back lighter and finer.

But for thicker hair, you might need even more. It’s best to wait a full hair cycle, which is usually about 4-5 weeks, before coming back for a follow-up session. You don’t have to wait until the hair completely grows back or gets to a certain length. The laser targets the follicle, not the hair.
