Medical Grade Laser Hair Removal

The laser energy is absorbed by the pigment (melanin) and transmitted down the shaft, disrupting the growth mechanism when it reaches the root. The light energy is then transformed to heat energy the heat then affects the hair follicles to prevent future hair growth.
