Which part of the body, could laser epilation be applied?

On the condition that protecting eyes from the direct beam with special goggles, it can be applied to hair on all body parts. It cannot be applied only around eye contours and inside ears.

Is laser epilation effective on light-color hair?

If the hair is very light coloured which means its melanin pigment is almost none, it won’t respond to the treatment as it cannot hold the lazer beam. This means, the effect of the application decreases as the hair colour gets lighter.

Does the thickness of hair have any importance on laser epilation?

Thickness of the hair is of utmost importance on the effectiveness of the treatment in laser depilation. Thick hair absorbs the beam within the shooting process in a much faster way. In general, The darker the colour of the hair is, the more efficient the treatment is.
