Laser hair removal is a medical procedure that uses a concentrated beam of light (laser) to remove unwanted hair. During laser hair removal, 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 tube-shaped sacs within the skin (hair follicles) that produce hairs. This damage inhibits or delays future hair growth.
The time required for a session depends on the body part being treated. For example, the upper lip session may take 20 minutes, whilst legs may take up to 3 hours.
The level of discomfort varies between individuals and the different areas being treated. Some people feel nothing, some feel a heat sensation, and some have likened the sensation to mild stinging or the flicking of a rubber band. Generally the coarser or thicker the hair, the greater the sensation.
Side effects are rare which may include acne, inflammation or hair follicles, pigmentation, paradoxical hair growth, allergy etc.
