Unwanted hair is a common problem for domestic patients and medical tourists alike. They may have unwanted hair on the chin, upper lip, cheeks, back, abdomen, bikini line, feet or toes. Many factors contribute to unwanted hair growth: genetics, medicine, hormones and endocrine disorders like polycystic ovarian syndrome. Various treatment methods can remove unwanted hair, but none of them are permanent solutions. Laser hair removal is the only treatment that produces fast, long-lasting results.
Laser hair removal is a common aesthetic procedure among medical travelers. While many tourist destinations offer this service, the procedure is most popular in Argentina, Costa Rica, Mexico and South Korea. The laser treatments are always approved by a doctor and tailored to individual patient needs. Most people require three or four treatments for optimal results.
