Is there any Permanent hair removal from body ?

hello doctor ...I m 24, male. I have hairs on my chest , shoulder and back. I have heard of permanent removal of hairs by laser technique. Can u pls advice hw reliable it is and what is the approximate money i would have to shell out for the treatment in chennai or delhi. How many sitting i would have to take. Also please suggest other means of getting permanent rid from these hairs, if any, which is less expensive than laser. Thanks in advance.

Hello Rohan,
Its Laser Hair Reduction, not PERMANENT hair REMOVAL.
after a certain time, the hair comes back but is finer and lesser than pre-treatment status.
You may require many sitings (10-12), but even then they wont vanish completely. SLowly the frequency of sessions will decrease. The approx cost will be around 60-70 K.
There is no way for getting rid of body hair completely and permanently.
