Laser hair removal uses light emitted from a medical laser to stop hair growth. It's based on the principle of light being attracted to and absorbed by the melanin (pigment) contained within the hair follicle. The light damages the hair follicle, gradually making it unable to regrow hair, which leads to permanent hair removal. An average of six to ten treatments are needed.
