What is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal is a medical procedure to remove hair by using a concentrated beam of light, also known as laser. The procedure is carried out by emitting the light from the laser into hair follicles, which absorbs this light and converts it into heat.

The heat damages the hair follicles and stops or delays the growth of hair from the particular area.
