Most of us look to our favourite celebrities and super-stars to learn about the newest and hottest beauty and fashion trends. Laser hair removal has its fair share of celebrity fans and here at Skin Perfection, London, we love this treatment and the celebs that have made it so popular.
It’s well documented that Victoria Beckham is a lover of the laser. In an article in Allure Magazine she reported that she has given up the razor for the laser! She commented, “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 have been very lucky that I haven’t had to”. It’s said that her good friend Eva Longoria advised Victoria on laser hair removal and since then she has never looked back. Eva and Victoria have the perfect skin and hair types for the treatment as they have fair to middle-toned skin and dark hair. Laser works by picking up on the pigment in the hair, so the contrast between hair and skin is helpful.
Kim Kardashian is also obsessed with laser hair removal and gave good reason for loving the treatment. “I am Armenian, so of course I am obsessed with laser hair removal! Arms, bikini, legs, underarms … my entire body is hairless.” Laser hair removal can permanently reduce even the most stubborn unwanted or excess hair. Some patients who are of Asian, Indian or Arab descent can suffer with a condition known as hirsutism, where excess hair can grow on the face and parts of the body. Laser hair removal is a superb treatment for this condition as it offers a long-term solution which is fast to administer and offers no downtime and very little discomfort. A far cry from painful waxing and epilating.
Wife of superstar footballer Wayne Rooney, Colleen also loves laser hair removal. Said to take advice from Rachel Hunter, Colleen had a course of laser hair removal and has never looked back. Fair-skinned Coleen posted on Twitter that she was ‘excited’ about beginning the procedure. Generally, a course of 6 treatments is recommended with top up treatments required later-on, however, with results of 85-95% permanent hair reduction it’s well worth it.
With so many famous stars and celebrities cottoning on to the fact that laser hair removal works and is very much here to stay, it’s only a matter of time before everyone will be following suit and ditching the shaver for the laser!
