Excessive body hair on the breasts can be an embarrassing problem. Laser hair removal works by emitting pulsed beams of concentrated light under the skin and into the hair follicle, damaging it so severely that further re-growth is significantly reduced. Far less invasive than the needles used in electrolysis, this procedure still provides results of up to 90% hair loss.

One important advantage of laser hair removal is that it can be used in almost all areas of the body. Undoubtedly, the breasts can feel quite sensitive and while laser hair removal is generally not considered painful, mild discomfort can be expected. In addition, skin may become temporarily red or bumpy after treatment. Minimal after care is required; a pain relieving cream can be applied if needed and it is highly recommended to avoid tanning for two weeks after treatment. In addition, sun cream should be applied for around 48 hours afterwards in order to protect the affected area.

In general, those looking at laser hair removal can expect to undergo 6-12 treatments to achieve optimum results. In comparison to the chest or legs, the breast area is quite small and for this reason may require less work; a minimum of three procedures is usually suggested for laser hair removal to be successful. The fact that fewer treatments are needed should also help to reduce laser hair removal; prices vary from clinic to clinic and there are different methods of charging. Some will charge per length of treatment, others per amount of laser pulses used and many offer a fixed price scheme.  Discounts may also be available so it is worth doing some research. More importantly, as laser hair removal can have adverse side effects if carried out incorrectly, it is vital to ensure that the clinic and practitioner are experienced and have a good reputation.
