Laser hair removal is a specialized procedure that removes excess unwanted hair from any part of the body, except the area closest to the eye. It can be applied to both women and men, providing long-lasting, risk-free results. It is a technique that is performed with intense light applications on the most superficial layers of the skin, destroying the hair by the action of heat selectively, without damaging other structures and preventing future growth. When the beam of light reaches the hair, the light energy applied is absorbed by the melanin it contains, becoming heat. As the laser only acts on the dark areas by melanin, is not efficient for white hair or very light. Increasingly younger people are deciding for laser hair removal, oscillating ages mainly between 20 and 50 years. It is not recommended for people with very dark skin or newly tanned, pregnant women and children under 14 years.
