Laser hair removal is one of the most commonly done cosmetic procedures that uses a concentrated beam of light (laser) to remove unwanted hair. If methods such as shaving, tweezing, or waxing to remove unwanted hair are not working for you, laser hair removal can be an option worth considering. In this procedure, a laser emits a light that is absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in the hair. The light energy is converted to heat, which damages the hair follicles that produce hairs. This damage destroys the hair and inhibits future hair growth.
