How does Laser Hair Removal work?
Laser Hair Removal is a modern form of hair removal, far superior to traditional methods such as waxing or shaving. Laser hair removal treatments work by targeting hair follicles through pulses of energy that pass through the skin’s surface and into the inner dermal layer. The laser destroys hair follicles at the root, in a matter of minutes with minimal (if any) discomfort. Once the laser destroys the haor follicle at its root, it will take far longer to growth back than if you were to use more conventional hair removal techniques such as shaving or waxing.
