Laser Hair removal
Laser hair removal is a procedure that uses intense pulsed light energy targetted on the tube-shaped sacs within the skin, called the hair follicle, to remove unwanted hair. Laser hinders hair growth safely & effectively for an extended period. This damage hampers future hair growth.
The fundamental principle is that laser hair removal is selective photothermolysis (SPTL). Dark objects absorb light while light objects reflect. When the laser energy incident on the skin, the dark pigment(melanin) in the hair or skin, absorbs with much more speed and intensity than just the skin without any dark adult hair or melanin.
Melanin is regarded as the chromophore responsible for all hair removal lasers on the market right now.
Lasers localize damage by selectively heating the dark target matter, melanin, thus heating the basal stem cells in the hair follicle while not heating the rest of the skin.
