How does laser work?
The light from the laser is absorbed by pigment in hair and blood vessels. Heat is produced in the pigment. This causes irreversible damage to hair follicles, preventing the follicle from
producing hair. In the case of small blood vessels the laser causes the vessel wall to break down resulting in its destruction and disappearance.
How many treatments are needed?
The number of treatments varies but typically 4-6 treatments are needed which are spaced out every 4-5 weeks.
What parts of the body can be treated?
