Laser Hair Removal Wants and Needs

“You can’t always get what you want, but if you try sometime, you just might find you get what you need.”

– Mick Jagger and Keith Richards from the 1969 album Let it Bleed 

What do you want from laser hair removal?

  • You want it to be fast
  • You want it to last
  • You want permanent
  • You want high tech
  • You want to be satisfied
  • You want soft, silky skin where the hair was
  • You want the latest and the newest in everything
  • You want your hair removal choice to be the one that accomplishes all this for an indefinite period

Laser is the only hair removal method that fulfills all of these “wants” on your want list.

People say it can become addictive. Some girls said that they could never have a boyfriend before they had laser hair removal. Parents bring in their teenagers who have been harassed and teased. These kids are especially appreciative.

Read these refreshingly frank real life laser hair removal success stories who had it done six months previously. These stories flesh out the long-term outcomes after having laser hair removal. This is what you can expect down the road after your sessions are completed. They describe exactly how permanent their laser hair experience actually was.

What do you really need when it comes to hair removal?

  • You need long lasting results
  • You need it to involve minimal pain
  • You need a great price
  • You need it to work
  • You need it to be quick and easy
  • You need it to be done safely in an experienced doctor’s office
  • Experience is a large part of what you need

What exactly do you mean by the words, permanent laser hair removal?

Laser is FDA approved for permanent hair reduction. About 15-20 % of your hairs that are treated by the laser will be removed with each treatment. It requires, on the average, between four to six treatments to reduce your hair permanently.

After laser hair removal, some regrowth of fine, soft hair may occur. This vellus hair is seen in newborn babies. Touch ups may be required. Many times, it’s just to pick up a few “stragglers”. Most say there is very little regrowth.

Once a laser kills a hair follicle, that hair will not regrow. However, hair grows in cycles. New hairs that the laser could not see because they were not active can grow. That’s why multiple sessions are necessary.

How much laser hair removal maintenance is required?

The number of touch ups or maintenance depends on:

  • Your skin tone
  • Heredity
  • Color of your hair
  • Coarseness of your hair
  • Hormones
  • Strength of the laser treatment
  • Wavelength and type of laser

Can laser hair removal fulfill both your wants and needs?

It depends.

On what?

On you.

Unlike other methods of hair removal including plucking, tweezing, waxing, shaving and electrolysis, laser hair removal is the most modern method of getting rid of unwanted hair. The laser accurately pinpoints the root of the hair follicle and permanently removes it from your body.

Laser hair removal is the only long term and proven method for easily eliminating your unwanted hair. For many people, you can have your cake and eat it too. Many people can get both what they want and what they need.

Celebrities adore laser hair removal. These well known celebrities include Kim Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian, Lilly Ghalichi, Hoda Kotb, Karina Smirnoff  and Alyssa Milano.

Laser hair removal is on fleek!

It is becoming more affordable and remains currently popular. It has remained in vogue since its inception. Its reputation is growing.

Laser hair removal is trending now. For many people, it’s the greatest thing since Apple invented the IPhone, ITunes and the IPad. The next thing you know, they’ll bring out the ILaser.


With laser hair removal, what you want may not be what you need. Mick Jagger told us that in 1969.

Is laser hair removal permanent?

Yes, it is permanent reduction. In that regard, it is a permanent hair removal solution. However, it usually means that it requires some maintenance to stay hair free. Maintenance may not be what you want.

Laser hair removal gives you what you need. It is:

  1. Effective
  2. Precise
  3. Cost efficient
  4. Quick
  5. Easy
