Laser hair removal is a medical procedure that removes unwanted hair from various areas on the body using a laser. The treatment is performed by an experienced medical provider and is an outpatient procedure. The laser used is an intense flashing light applied to the area being treated. The beam penetrates the epidermis to reach the hair follicle where it reduces future growth. Laser hair removal is an effective means of slowing the growth process, and in some cases permanently stops new hair growth. For permanent results multiple sessions are required and results are never guaranteed. It is important to note that different skin pigments and hair colors produce different results.
