Laser Hair Removal Treatments Improve Women’s Quality of Life

Unwanted facial hair can have a significant psychological impact on women. Research has also shown that it can also reduce their overall quality of life.

Laser therapy can help, however. In a study involving 70 women, a team of Iranian researchers found that women’s scores on a standard quality of life assessment more than doubled after they received laser treatment for their unwanted facial hair.

“Unwanted facial hair removal with laser can improve the quality of life of patients,” the study’s authors concluded.
