How Laser Hair Removal Works

Laser hair removal is a medical procedure that uses a concentrated beam of light to remove unwanted hair by damaging the hair follicles. The lasers used in this process emit a light that is absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in the hair, converting light energy to heat that damages the hair follicles. Typically, a series of laser hair removal treatments is needed to achieve optimal results, and maintenance treatments may be required for long-term hair reduction. It is strongly recommended to have this procedure done by a certified professional to avoid risks and complications.

You may also experience mild discomfort after the procedure, such as redness and irritation similar to a mild sunburn.

How long will laser hair removal last?
