What Is The minimum Age For Laser Hair Removal?

Question: How old do you have to be to have laser hair removal?

Answer: The minimum age for laser hair removal is 18 years old.

At this present time we do not know whether this age range will be change until after the 1st October 2010.

This is because after this day the laser industry will not be regulated by the Care Quality Commission, an independent regulator of the

health care services in England.

However, your local council to where the clinic is regulated may still stipulate that the minimum age must be 18.

Depending on what area your hair growth is you could try Applisonix as this

is available for any age group as it uses ultrasound energy and is not a laser.

I hope this helps

What Is The Minimum Age For Laser Hair Removal

Hi my daughter is just 6 years old and is getting teased at school for having really hairy legs. I certainly don't promote such a procedure

for a child so young but on the other hand I hate seeing my child so upset and now she is refusing to wear shorts in the summer, it's heart

breaking!

I was wondering what the minimum age for ipl hair removal is for future

reference if the teasing persists or gets worse. I really don't want her to have any body issues or not feel confident.

Although we tell her to ignore what they say its very difficult fir her as she is very sensitive.

Many thanks

Janice

Reply Hi Janice, The Minimum age for having laser hair removal is 18. We are unable to obtain insurance in order to carry out

treatments upon minors. Often the skin can still be considered as baby skin before the age of 18, this means that it could be prone to

adverse reactions.

We offer a number of alternative methods to laser, such as an alkaline wash called Hair V go.

This helps to reduce the hair growth, but with a less harsh product. I can understand why you want your daughter to do laser, as I also

want my 10 year old to do it too. However, the age of 6 is honestly too young for your daughter to do laser as she will soon be going

through hormonal changes, when the menstrual cycle begins.

Hormones can promote more growth, making the treatment more ineffective.

If you are local to one of our branches then give us a call about the Hair V Go product range or google alkaline wash treatments for hair

reduction and find a salon near your area.

I hope this helps

What Is The Minimum Age For Laser Hair Removal

by Bianca
(Australia)

I am a 14 year old girl. I have really dark black hair and dark brown skin. Do you think laser hair removal is ok at my age?

Reply Hi Bianca, To be honest I do not know what the rules and regulations are for laser hair removal in Australia, but in my clinic

we do not treat anyone under the age of 18 years old.

As you are only fourteen years old, you are quiet young, your hormones are probably still settling down, and also alot of the time your

skin may still be classified as baby skin, which would mean it may be far more sensitive to the laser and more prone to react.

I do recommend that you consult someone in Australia who would be able to help you. I think you are far too young to get laser hair removal

done, as you should be around the age of 18, by which time your body should be more prepared and your hormones normally would have settled

down.

Laser Hair Removal Under 18 Years Old Need help

by Hannah
(Bromley Kent)

I am 17 years old and I have got dark hairs on the side of my face. I have quite a lot of hairs and it needs to be treated asap. I am white

British and I really need to get rid of these hairs. I am willing to pay any amount and i am able to get an adults consent.

Answer Hi Hannah as you are only 17 years old you will not be able to have laser until you reach the age of 18. As soon as you are

18 years you can come in for a consultation and patch test but before then you are not allowed to have laser hair removal treatment as the

laser industry licence will not cover any clinic.

If you do want to get treatment the only procedure is electrolysis hair

removal
which is available for under 18 year olds.

14 Year Old Wanting To Do Laser Hair Removal

by Charlotte
(Singapore)

I am 14 this year and have underarm hair, leg hair and arm hair. I really want to do the laser hair removal to remove it. No matter how

expensive it is, I would save money to do it. But I saw at some pages (which I can't remember) that said that the laser hair removal is not

permanent.

Is it true?

If it is, is there some other way that is permanent? I have done waxing on my underarm many times so it doesn't really matter if it's

painful. And is a 14 year old able to do laser hair removal?

Thanks Charlotte

Reply Hi Charlotte, I understand that you are 14 and want to start doing laser but you have to be a minimum of 18 years old to

start.

Laser hair removal is not permanent, but you will get a good reduction so long as you are not suffering from any hormone imbalance, or

taking any medication that can trigger more hair growth.

I have many clients who are undergoing underarm, full legs and arm hair removal treatment; they have seen really good results. Sometimes

even up to 90% reduction of hair growth off these areas.

I myself have had underarm laser done but do not need to have any more treatments because I only have two hairs which keep returning, which

I am currently treating with electrolysis.

Again with my legs I have seen really good results, the arms do take slightly longer to treat, you do require around 12 sessions, due to

the way the hair follicles are situated. But if you are suffering from any hormone imbalance such as PCOS, then that is an issue where you

will be developing new re-growth.

Laser is normally a permanent reduction.

Laser Hair Removal At Age 14

by anna
(england)

can i have laser hair removal done at the age of 14?? if not please tell me what age i need to be !! thanks x
( i am a girl by the way)!

Hi Anna

There is a statutory minimum age for laser hair removal and that age is 18 years. I'm afraid no establishment in the UK will treat you

because you are so young. I would wax the area and then when you are 18 years old treat the hairs with laser.

Quick Painless Hair Removal

How old do i have to be to get the laser treatment done?

Reply The minimum age for laser hair removal is 18. Depending how much hair you want removing you could have electrolysis hair removal or continue waxing (if you do) until you turn 18.

Laser Hair Removal Side Burns

How old do you have to be to get laser hair removal on your side burns ?

Reply

By law you have to be over 18 years of age to undergo laser hair removal treatment. We follow strict guidelines set by the Care Quality

Commission and since they have been decommissioned our local authority has followed those guidelines not to treat anyone under the age of

18.

If you are under 18 years old then you could have electrolysis hair

removal
or continue with threading or waxing until you are 18 years old.

Age For Male IPL

by rupert
(england)

Hi I'm 15 year old teenager and I was wondering how it will affect the hair inbetween my eye brows and if it will work.


Thank you

Hi Rupert,

Laser hair removal can be done on people with all skin types so long as their

hair growth is dark and thick enough. However it will be difficult for you to find a salon which will agree to do laser on any individual

before the age of 18. The reason for this is because your skin can still be classified as baby skin until you reach 18 and therefore laser

will be too sensitive for you.

Also teenagers tend to be going through a number of hormonal changes which can affect the results they see from laser. So although you may

see a reduction from laser treatment, you may see it return as you

go through a growth spurt over the next few years.

In regards to the results you can expect from laser, laser can be effective on any part of the body. The face tends to be slightly more

hormonal so it therefore takes more sessions to see results here.
On average you will require around 6 - 12 sessions of laser to see optimum result. You will find that your hairs will become finer and

patchier. Also some people find that hairs take several weeks to reappear after a substantial amount of sessions.

In order to see the best results your hair-growth must qualify as suitable for laser, it needs to have a dark hair colour and be slightly

thick. If you have blonde hair this treatment will not work for you. Also if your hairs are too fine it may mean that you will see no

difference at all. Most males tend to have thicker hairs so often they have a good chance at seeing effective results from an early stage.

You are only 15 years old, if you are unhappy with the growth on your mid-brow you should consider either waxing it away or threading as

the results can temporarily last around 2 - 3 weeks before your hairs come back. Then once you are 18 you can schedule a consultation with

a therapist and they will advise you as to whether you should consider laser or not.

Thanks
