Laser hair removal is accomplished by using pulses of laser light to get rid of the hair follicles of unwanted hair. Laser hair removal is widely practiced in clinics and is widely accepted by dermatologists as an effective hair removal treatment.

How does it Work?

Lasers target the area of each individual hair’s follicle while leaving the surrounding tissue untouched. The melanin (a compound that provides pigment) in hair is the key to effectively killing the hair strand. Since dark objects absorb light much more effectively, only brown or black hair can be removed because of the selective absorption of the photons of laser light.

What Areas of the Body is Laser Treatment Most Used On?

Laser hair removal is suitable for the following areas: Face, underarms, arms, legs, bikini area, areola, chest and back. In men, the back is a popular area for laser hair removal, whereas face and bikini area are most common in women. Laser hair removal can be performed anywhere on the body except around the eyes as this could lead to damage of the persons vision by harming the nerves around the eye.
