How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

Laser hair removal works by using concentrated beams of light to target and destroy hair follicles. The pigment in the hair absorbs the laser's energy, which heats and damages the follicle, inhibiting future hair growth. This process selectively targets dark, coarse hairs while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged. Multiple treatment sessions are typically needed to achieve optimal results, as hair grows in different cycles. With each session, the hair becomes finer and lighter until it is significantly reduced or eliminated.

The Science

Behind Laser Hair Removal Results

Targeting Hair Pigment

Laser hair removal relies on the principle of selective photothermolysis, where specific wavelengths of light are absorbed by the melanin (pigment) in the hair. This absorption of light converts to heat, which then targets and damages the hair follicle. The precision of this process allows the laser to focus on dark, coarse hairs while sparing the surrounding skin from damage. The effectiveness of the treatment depends on the contrast between the color of the hair and the skin, making it most efficient on darker hairs and lighter skin tones.

Disrupting Hair Growth Cycles

Hair growth occurs in cycles: anagen (growth phase), catagen (transitional phase), and telogen (resting phase). Laser hair removal is most effective during the anagen phase when the hair is actively growing and connected to the follicle. Since not all hairs are in the same phase at the same time, multiple treatment sessions are necessary to catch each hair in its anagen phase. Over successive treatments, the laser effectively reduces the number of active hair follicles, leading to a noticeable decrease in hair growth and density.

Achieving Long-Term Hair Reduction

The goal of laser hair removal is to achieve long-term hair reduction by damaging the hair follicles to the point where they can no longer produce new hair. With each session, the treated hairs become finer, lighter, and fewer in number. While some follicles may eventually recover and produce new hair, these hairs are typically much less noticeable. Maintenance treatments may be required to sustain results, but many patients experience significant and lasting reduction in unwanted hair after completing their initial series of laser sessions.

Who Is A Candidate For Laser Hair Removal?

A good candidate for laser hair removal is someone with a contrast between their skin and hair color, typically light skin with dark hair, as this allows the laser to effectively target the hair pigment without affecting the surrounding skin. Ideal candidates are those seeking a long-term solution to reduce unwanted hair in areas such as the face, underarms, legs, bikini line, back, or arms. Individuals with realistic expectations, in good overall health, and who are willing to commit to multiple sessions for optimal results are well-suited for laser hair removal. It's important for candidates to avoid sun exposure and follow all pre- and post-treatment care instructions to achieve the best results.

This Treatment Is For You If...


Individuals seeking a long-term solution for unwanted hair can benefit significantly from laser hair removal. This treatment targets hair follicles to reduce hair growth, offering a more permanent result compared to traditional methods like shaving or waxing.

Individuals who Desire Long-Term Hair Reduction


Those looking to save time and effort on their hair removal routine will find laser hair removal particularly appealing. With fewer sessions required over time, you can reduce the frequency and hassle of daily or weekly hair removal.

People Who Want to Save Time on Hair Removal


People with sensitive skin who experience irritation from shaving, waxing, or plucking can benefit from the less abrasive nature of laser hair removal. This method reduces the risk of ingrown hairs and razor burn, providing a gentler alternative for smooth skin.

Those with Sensitive Skin


Patients Who Seek a Precise Treatment

Individuals wanting precise and targeted hair removal will appreciate laser hair removal's ability to focus on specific areas. Whether it's the face, underarms, legs, or bikini line, the laser can be directed to treat small or large regions with accuracy.

This Treatment Is Not For You If...


Those with very light blonde, red, grey, or white hair may not achieve optimal results from laser hair removal. The laser targets pigment in the hair, and light or grey hair lacks the necessary contrast for effective treatment.

Individuals with Very Light or Grey Hair


Individuals with a recent tan, whether from sun exposure or self-tanning products, may not be ideal candidates for laser hair removal. The increased melanin in tanned skin can lead to complications or reduced effectiveness of the treatment.

People Who Tan or Use Self-Tanner


Pregnant women are generally advised to avoid laser hair removal due to the lack of sufficient research on its safety during pregnancy. It's best to postpone treatments until after childbirth to ensure the well-being of both mother and baby.

Those Who are Pregnant or Nursing Mothers


Those with Certain Skin Conditions

People with specific skin conditions, such as active eczema, psoriasis, or severe acne, may need to avoid laser hair removal. These conditions can increase the risk of adverse reactions, and it's crucial to consult with a healthcare provider before proceeding.
