About laser hair removal
This noninvasive laser treatment uses gentle beams of light to get rid of hair. The hair's melanin (the part that gives hair its color) absorbs the light, which turns into heat. The heat damages the follicle (but not the surrounding skin or tissue) and prevents it from producing more hair.
