What is Laser Hair Removal?

Permanent hair reduction with a laser involves the use of a single wavelength of light . Melanin in the hair follicle is targeted, heating and damaging the follicles in the active growth cycle.

Only hairs that have color can be treated. White, grey and red hair do not respond to light treatment.

The best candidate has light skin and darker hair as this tends to yield the greatest outcomes. Fairer skin and red hair will respond to a lesser degree. Laser can treat all skin types along with all body sites including arms, legs, face, bikini, back and neck.
