Laser hair removal is considered the most effective in getting rid of uncomfortable hair on almost any part of the body. The procedure is based on selective thermolysis. As a result of exposure to laser radiation, the hair follicle, absorbing laser light through melanin, heats up to about 60 degrees Celsius and is destroyed. In this case, there is no damage to the skin due to the minimal heating of the tissues adjacent to the destroyed follicle.
