Laser hair removal significantly reduces hair growth by using heat energy. The laser works by using a light source to target and selectively heat the hair follicle, destroying the stem cells and delaying its future growth. Further hair growth will be slower and hair will be finer. Generally 6-10 treatments are required for significant hair reduction.
Laser hair removal only works on hairs that have pigment in them. Therefore, patients with red, grey or white hairs may be harder to treat, or untreatable.
