What is laser hair removal and how does it work?

Laser hair removal is a procedure where a specific beam of light bypasses the epidermis (surface skin) and targets the hair follicle, disabling the reproductive cycle of the hair without hurting or burning the skin. As the follicle gets destroyed, the hair shaft becomes weak and limp, and eventually after several treatments the follicle dies and no hair grows.

What the laser does; (science bit) the light emitted by the laser is absorbed by the pigment (colour) in your hair and the light is converted into heat and delays hair growth.
