It's daunting to know there are so many LHR clinics available today, so how do you tell the experienced from the inexperienced when it comes to using medical grade equipment? Has your laser hair removal therapist ever mentioned the below tips...?

#5 - Troublesome hair removal areas

When surveyed, the majority of women believed they were one of the few with troublesome nipple, facial and snail trail hair growth - when in fact we treat these concerns daily

#6 - Stress slows laser hair removal results

When you stress your body produces more of the hormone androgen, which can cause hirsutism ( hair on a woman that matches a male hair pattern, you know the ones we’re talking about those odd ... and annoying chin hairs gggrrrrrr) Androgens also increase oil production which can lead to oily skin, acne and other related skin problems such as worsening of cold sores, psoriasis, seborrheic dermatitis and dehydration.

It's also aging's best friend. When you stress you frown which causes frown lines and wrinkles. Chronic stress deprives your skin of the blood and oxygen it needs to be healthy, causing it to lose its elasticity and break more easily and eventually your skin will take on a dull aged appearance.
