The laser has become an effective surgical instrument commonly used for a number of procedures. One of the most popular is the usage of laser for the quick, gentle removal of unwanted hair. The laser works by emitting a pulsating beam of light, of a certain wavelength to particular areas on the skin. The light passes through the skin, and gets absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicle and shaft. Once absorbed by laser light, the follicles are weakened from future growth, and eventually die off. Laser hair removal has come a long way since 1998- when the first laser for hair removal got FDA clearance. Previously laser were very slow and painful and worked only on people with very dark hair and very light skin. But, today it is effective on all skin colors.

When considering laser hair removal, remember that laser is not for everyone and their right use requires great training, skills and experience. So, it is best to have a laser-trained dermatologist like Dr. Meet, perform the procedure. For great results, the hair pigment must be darker than the surrounding skin pigment. Laser hair removal is easier to perform on light skin.
