“I want to talk a little bit about laser hair removal today, and one of the common questions is “How young can you be and get laser hair removal?”

We’ve got teenagers coming in, and of course that’s totally fine. There’s no real younger age limit as long as the adolescent or the minor is accompanied by their parents so that we can get permission.

A teenager or someone under the age of 18 in the State of California in most States around the country cannot authorize, or give us consent to do a treatment that’s a medical based treatment which is of course true with the laser hair removal therapy using a class 2 medical device or class 3 medical device.

So you can do it on younger people and teenagers or those younger, but first we got to make sure that the patients that are here are with their parents, and I’ve done it even in younger teenage ranges for laser hair removal in certain unwanted hair areas. It’s very effective in young people, it’s very long lasting just like it is in older people and it’s certainly very rewarding in younger patients who have unwanted facial hair.

If you have any other questions about laser hair removal don’t hesitate to contact through DrMaas.com and as always this is Corey S. Maas MDTM on Looking your Best.”
