Laser Hair Removal
During laser hair removal, a laser emits a light that is absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in the hair. The light energy is converted to heat, which damages the hair follicles. This damage inhibits or delays future hair growth. Melanin is a pigment that gives hair its color and is not present unless hair is growing. This is why several laser hair removal sessions are needed to remove all of your hair in a specific area. It is also why laser hair removal does not always work on people with white, light red, blonde or grey hair.
