  • What is laser hair removal and how does it work?
    Laser hair removal uses focused light energy to target and penetrate the hair shaft and destroy the hair root. The high-energy laser light is safely absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in the root of the hair. The light energy the device gives off is converted into heat, which especially targets pigmented cells because they absorb more of the energy than surrounding tissues.This results in damage to the cells that grow hair. In addition to reducing unwanted hair, laser treatments can also address other issues, like ingrown hairs.
