Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is a medical procedure that uses a concentrated laser to remove unwanted hair. During laser hair removal, a laser emits a light that is absorbed by the pigment in the hair. The light energy is converted to heat, which damages the hair follicles. This damage inhibits or delays future hair growth. Although laser hair removal effectively delays hair growth for long periods of time, it does not result in permanent hair removal. Multiple laser hair removal sessions are needed and constant maintenance might be needed as well.
Side effects of laser hair removal vary with skin type, hair color, and pre-treatment and post-treatment care. The most common side effects of laser hair removal include:
