How Laser Hair Removal Works
Laser hair therapy uses pulse of light that targets melanin in hair follicles. Due to its dark color melanin absorbs light. The surrounding tissues are light in color so they do not absorb light and the laser effects only the hair follicles. The best combination for laser hair removal is light colored skin and dark colored hair.
