In brief: Laser Hair Reduction

There is no fixed age at which you are no longer a candidate for permanent laser hair reduction.
If you are old enough to have unwanted hair you wish to be rid of and you have no contraindications to treatment, such as pregnancy, sun tan, grey or blond hairs, you are able to be receive treatments. If under 18 yrs old, a parent will need to sign consent for your laser treatments.

In brief: Yes

You have to be able to consent for laser hair removal so you need to be 18.
If parents want to do it on a teenager, they would need to be there. For teenage girls, i recommend that they have their period for two years regularly before beginning laser hair removal. This ensures that hormones are working the way they are suppose to.
