Laser hair removal permanently reduces the amount of hair growth by killing the hairs at the follicle. The latest treatments have greatly reduced the discomfort of the procedure and have improved the amount of hair reduction and procedure time. Because the laser energy is naturally attracted to dark colors, the best candidates for laser hair removal are those with very light skin and dark hair. Those with darker skin will benefit less because the darker pigment in the skin will absorb some of the laser light energy. To avoid burning or ineffectiveness, patients with darker skin may choose a different method of removal such as electrolysis. Laser hair removal usually does not work for those with light colored or red hair. Also, blonde or gray/white hair is less responsive due to lack of ample pigment in the hair. There is little to no downtime to this procedure and it treats larger areas effectively because it disables more than one hair at a time.
