Laser hair removal is the process of hair removal by means of exposure to pulses of laser light that destroy the hair follicle.
It target a specific chromophore with a laser to partially damage basal stem cells inside the hair follicles. This method proved to be successful, and was first applied in 1996. In 1997 the United States Food and Drug Administration approved this tactic of hair removal.

How Does Laser Hair Removal Treatment Work?
Laser hair reduction is a non-invasive procedure, by which unwanted hair are removed from any part of the body by utilizing a long pulsed laser.
The primary principle behind laser hair removal is selective photothermolysis (SPTL), the matching of a specific wavelength of light and pulse duration to obtain optimal effect on a targeted tissue with minimal effect on surrounding tissue. Lasers can cause localized damage by selectively heating dark matter or melanin. Hence, it targets the hair follicle, while not heating the rest of the skin. Dark objects absorb light, so laser energy can be absorbed by dark material in the skin, but with much more speed and intensity.
Hair grows in cycles, and many factors influence its growth, Age, ethnicity, medications, hormones levels, and even location of the hair on the body influence the length, coarseness and colour of hair.
- Anagen is the active growing phase in which the hair bulb is intact. The hair grows in both directions, upward and downwards
- Catagen is the regression phase when the lower part of the hair stops growing but is not shed, and the body absorbs the lower third of the follicle.
- Telogen is the resting phase. The hair bulb is no longer present and is now a club hair which will fall out or be pushed out of the follicle by the new anagen growing hair.
