You may well have stumbled upon a recent article in allure magazine where Victoria Beckham was gushing about the perks of laser hair removal. In a recent interview, the former Spice Girl and current wife of David Beckham reported that she’s given up the razor for good and now relies on lasers to keep her legs smooth. She said, “I don’t shave my legs. I got laser, which is amazing. You can go back for little touch-ups if you do see little hairs appearing. But I’ve been very lucky that I haven’t had to. That was one of the best tips that Eva Longoria ever gave me.”
Victoria Beckham makes an ideal candidate for laser hair removal because she has fair skin and dark hair. Lasers work by targeting the darker pigment of the hair follicle, so this contrast is very helpful. While the latest lasers are more forgiving of tan skin tones, the procedure may not be right if you have very dark skin or very light hair.
Generally a course of 6 treatments is recommended with top ups required in the future but with results of 85 -95% permanent hair reduction you won’t be disappointed. If you are unsure about your suitability please call us for advice and a no obligation consultation and patch test.
