Laser Hair Removal

Laser Hair Removal


Laser hair removal is the procedure which  uses  lasers or an intense pulse light as technology to remove unwanted hair on the face & body. During laser hair removal a beam of laser or intense light is passed through skin to each hair follicle reaching to its base from where the future hair grows. This leads to permanent prevention of hair growth.

Thus Laser hair removal not only effectively slows hair growth but also leads to permanent hair reduction. This does not completely remove hair permanently. Hair reduction that occurs near about 80% is permanent. Multiple laser hair removal sittings are required to do that. It depends upon thickness & blackness of the hair and  the color of the skin.
