As children approach their teenage years, many changes occur in their bodies, including hair growth in new places. While some kids may embrace this newfound hair as a sign of growing up, others may find it embarrassing or uncomfortable. 

Some people use shaving and waxing for unwanted hair growth, while others opt for laser hair removal. But can a 12-13 year-old teenager get laser hair removal

Let’s find out!

Laser hair removal uses a concentrated light beam to target and destroy hair follicles. The laser emits a specific wavelength of light that is absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in the hair. The heat from the laser damages the hair follicle, preventing future hair growth.

The effectiveness of laser hair removal can be affected by hormonal changes that occur during adolescence, particularly in preteens around 12. These changes can increase hair growth and thickness, which may make laser hair removal less effective. In addition, because hormonal changes can also impact the pigment in the skin and hair, it can be more difficult to target the hair follicles with the laser. 

Also,it’s important for a child to fully understand the procedure and be mature enough to handle it before undergoing laser hair removal.

Most expert dermatologists at laser hair removal clinic recommend waiting until the teen is through puberty, before taking up laser hair removal . It is also important to ensure that the treatment is administered by a trained, certified, and experienced dermatologist and that the procedure is age-appropriate and supervised.

Therefore, it is also better to consult an expert dermatologist before taking your teen for laser hair removal. The dermatologist will assess and discuss the risks and benefits of the procedure before deciding.
