What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is a procedure where laser light energy is absorbed by the dark color of hair and destroys the hair follicle. It does not affect the surrounding skin so the treatment is safe and comfortable. Most people will require 5 to 6 treatments to achieve permanent hair reduction. Unfortunately lasers will not work on fine hair or blond and grey hair.
