What is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal uses technology in which a beam of light is applied to unwanted hair on various parts of the body. This light is a specific wavelength that targets the melanin—the pigment in the hair that gives it color, in the hair follicle.

When the light enters the follicle, it is converted to heat energy that destroys or inactivates the follicle, preventing the hair from growing again.
