How does Laser Hair Removal work?
The medical grade laser emits wavelengths of light which is absorbed by the pigment melanin (colour) of the hair. The laser will cauterize the blood supply at the root effectively destroying the hair without affecting the skin or surrounding area. Laser hair removal works best on pale skin with dark coarse hair.
