You no longer have to bother with painful waxes and shaving equipment; instead, try laser hair removal. A non-invasive procedure for permanent hair reduction, laser hair removal works to remove unwanted hair by converting the light energy of a special laser into heat. As the heat enters the skin, it is absorbed by the melanin in the hair follicle. Once the temperature gets high enough in the hair follicle during its active phase, it disables the hair structures, preventing the unwanted hair from growing back.

Since hair grows in different cycles, it may be necessary to have this procedure performed multiple times for the best possible results. Patients who have had laser hair removal report that fewer hairs grow back after treatment, and those that do regrow are finer and lighter in color.
