What is Laser Hair Removal?
The “removal” of hair with light-based technologies has been steadily improving over the last decade. Men and women are looking for methods to reduce the presence of unwanted, dark, terminal hair from many areas on the body.
Laser Hair Removal is a process in which unwanted hair is removed by a laser that emits a gentle beam of light at the source of hair growth.
How Does The Laser Work?
Lasers target melanin pigment in the hair in an effort to destroy the hair follicle. Hair follicles produce hairs of various thickness and colors. Dark hair contains the pigment melanin which serves as the target for energy delivered by the laser. The laser emits a specific light beam that is selectively absorbed by the pigment located in the hair follicle.
The laser energy is absorbed by the pigmented hair shaft and is then transferred to the surrounding follicle. This causes thermal destruction of these hair follicles and disrupts their ability to regenerate, resulting in permanent hair reduction. The laser light eradicates hundreds of hair follicles in seconds.
