Definition


Laser hair removal is an depilatory technique that is called "permanent" in the sense that the treated hairs do not grow back, contrary to classic hair waxing. This method consists of destroying the hair follicle through absorption of the laser's light, without damaging the surrounding skin cells: this is what is called selective photothermolysis. Laser hair removal generally requires 5 to 6 sessions for definitive results, though this varies according to the areas treated.
