Yes Laser Hair Remover works by sending a laser beam to the hair follicle with enough energy to permanently disable the root without affecting the surrounding area. The result is permanent hair reduction.
Simple to use, laser hair removal is suitable for unwanted face or body hair and features two treatment modes, one treats individual hairs, the other scans larger areas treating up to 60 hairs* in just a few seconds. Now with advanced LCD display, making permanent hair reduction easier than ever.

Laser hair removal explainedSkin and hair contains a natural pigment called melanin. The level of melanin in your skin is the primary determinant of your skin colour, and is responsible for causing skin to tan during sun exposure. Both skin and hair follicles contain different concentrations of melanin. Lasers work by delivering an intense beam of light made up of a single wavelength. Yes Laser operates at a wavelength that selectively targets the melanin in the hair follicle, causing the hair follicle to absorb the laser energy. The laser energy absorbed results in the rapid heating of the hair follicle. This heat destroys the cells responsible for hair growth. If adequate heating is achieved, the follicle is permanently disabled resulting in permanent hair reduction. The skin remains unaffected as it is essentially transparent to light in this wavelength range. It is only possible to treat a hair follicle when there is a hair present and the best results are achieved when the hair is actively growing. For permanent hair reduction six treatments are recommended over a six month period. Occasional touch up treatments may be required for stubborn hairs.

What you should expect to feelYou may feel individual hairs being treated, which is like a mild pin prick, and a slight warming of the area being treated. However, most people dont feel anything.
