Is there an effective laser hair removal treatment that works on fair hair as well as dark hair?

I would like treatment for lip and chin area but my hair is mostly fair and I have been told that laser doesn't work on fair hair.

YOU MAY BE OK...GO AND HAVE A FREE PATCH TEST AND SEE IF IT WORKS....IF YOU HAVE ENOUGH MELANIN THEN THE LIGHT WILL FIND IT AND DESTROY THE HAIR FOLLICLE..I RECOMMEND LUMENIS I.P.L...

even if the hairs is fair, there still might be enough melanin in the root of the hair for the laser to see the pigment to destroy the follicle. You will never know for sure till you get one treatment done. You have to have a patch test first to establish how your skin responds to heat, and then you can have an actual treatment done in 24 hours after. The best lasers available at the market for hair removal are Lumenis LightSheer Laser Diode and Soprano Laser (with the painless mode off). Not too many clinics have these machines as they are very expensive, but they really work. We have a LightSheer at Body Silk Clinic - more info is available on our website http://www.bodysilk.co.uk or by phone 02072835800.
