How lasers work for hair removal
Laser emits a beam of light that hits pigment, melanin, in hair follicles. Due to its dark color melanin absorbs light and becomes inactive. As skin possesses light tone so it does not absorb laser. Modern lasers carefully target the hair only while keeping the surrounding skin intact.

Substitutes of laser hair removal
Electrolysis has been used by people who want to get rid of their extra hair for more than 135 years. IPL is another substitute of laser that is incorrectly referred to as â€œlaser hair removalâ€, possibly due to the fact that it also releases light. According to a study conducted in ASVAK laser centre in Turkey, laser treatment is more reliable, faster and less painful than electrolysis.
Repeated sessions are necessary for long term removal of hair. There are multiple factors that determine the number of sessions needed. Some of these factors are area of body under treatment, skin tone, sex, and coarseness of hair. Usually 7 treatments are needed at a minimum and the patient needs to wait for eight weeks before the next session of treatment.
A combination of light tone skin and dark coarse hair is considered to be the best for laser treatment. However, modern lasers also work on people who have dark complexion and dark black hair. With the use of state-of-the-art technology, now laser can target hairs which have very small quantity of melanin or do not have it at all.
It would be quite interesting to know that hair removal laser is also a good treatment for the ingrown hairs. Many surgeons use lasers for the treatment of pilonidal cysts.
