I had some hormone tests done which showed my testosterone is relatively high. As a result, I am on medication. Is laser hair removal safe and effective for me?
If you have an underlying hormonal issue causing the hair growth, you won’t see good results from laser hair removal until you get it (your hormones) under control. Your body will be busy developing new hair and regardless of how much of the “current” hair is destroyed, it will be replaced by new hair. You will need to stop treatment and obtain medication to stabilize your hormonal levels. When the imbalance is under control, you can start your laser treatments and achieve excellent and stable results on the body. In most cases, the facial area will require “touchup” treatments every three (3) to six (6) months throughout life to remain hair free.
