Laser hair removal is a procedure that uses a laser that emits a gentle beam of light that passes through the skin where it is absorbed by the pigment of the hair follicle. The laser energy is transformed into heat that damages the hair follicle, which inhibits future hair growth and leaves the surrounding skin unaffected.
Laser hair removal is used to remove unwanted hair. Common treatment locations include upper lip, chin, underarms, legs and bikini line. However it is possible to treat unwanted hair in almost any area.
Laser hair removal is most effective for people who have light skin and dark hair because the laser beam targets the pigment in the hair. Although laser hair removal effectively slows hair growth, it doesn’t guarantee permanent removal. Laser hair removal is not effective for blonde, white or gray hair. Vellus hair or “peach fuzz” also will not respond to laser hair treatment.
