For many people, body hair is far more than just a cosmetic problem. In some cases, facial hair or hairy back can have devastating impact on self-esteem. However, conventional methods of hair removal such as plucking, electrolysis or waxing are painful, time-consuming and always of limited duration only. Shaving stresses the skin, leaves stubble and must be repeated constantly.
The only real alternative is treatment laser or flash lamp.
