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 tube-shaped sacs within the skin (hair follicles) that produce hairs. This damage inhibits or delays future hair growth.
Laser hair removal permanently reduces hair growth up to 80% so that you can stop shaving or waxing altogether – it is a virtually permanent treatment. In-Salon laser hair removal is the only treatment that comes close to permanent long-lasting hair reduction because it attacks the hair deep in the follicle destroying the hair.
