Most of you may have tried every method there is to tame your neck hair from shaving to waxing, and even depilatory cream.

Apparently, the newest incarnation of laser hair removal, can help you with that.

Dr. Tina West of the West Institute outside Washington D.C. breaks down your hair removal options.

First and foremost, it is not actually hair removal, it is reduction. It's not a cure-all for any excess hair but, you would see a huge improvement.

Dr. West used the brand new LightSheer Duet for the procedure.

The LightSheer Duet is a state of the art laser used for hair reduction.

It allows for large treatment spot size and it's up to five times the speed of earlier laser hair reduction technology. 

“Men are oftentimes seeking lunchtime treatments that are now possible with more efficient laser hair reduction that is fast and painless, without the extra time previously required for numbing creams,” says Dr. West.

“The big advantage of laser hair reduction compared to other methods of hair removal is that the laser is the only technology that changes the way the hair grows back, causing it to grow back finer and more slowly.” 

As it turns out, laser hair treatments work best on fair skin and dark hair.

This is because the less melanin and the more pigment in your skin, the better the laser will work. 

This means it may be best to wait until the cooler months so you can get a few treatments done before swimsuit season circles back.

This also means you should tackle this while in your younger years as gray or white hair does not respond to the laser.

Watch this clip that answers all your questions on laser hair reduction, even for women.
