08 October 2012Research has revealed laser hair removal is top of the list for women who want to undergo cosmetic surgery. In an article for the Daily Mail, novelist Nicholas Coleridge claimed British females are becoming increasingly obsessed with “extreme grooming” and the way they look.He pointed out that research shows 60 per cent of people aged between 16 and 24 would have plastic surgery if they could afford a procedure. While the majority of those questioned revealed they would go for laser hair removal, liposuction and a tummy tuck were also high up on the list. Laser hair removal is a gentle way of permanently removing unwanted hair and uses special machines to focus light that penetrates the epidermis of the skin and destroys the pigment of the hair. This instantly removes the hair and hinders further growth. “We’re not just weight-obsessed – in a recent survey 30 per cent of women said they felt under pressure ‘to look good at all times,” Coleridge stated.
