Hair grows from follicles in the skin. The hair itself is not alive and can only grow from a living, healthy follicle. Laser hair removal targets these follicles and damages them so they are no longer able to produce hair.
This type of hair removal uses a laser that targets the hair follicles. The laser uses pulses of heat to destroy the hair follicles without damaging the surrounding skin.
Some lasers can only be used on certain skin tones and hair types. Our Gentlemax Pro laser system works on all skin tones by using a special kind of laser called Nd:YAG. The Gentlemax Pro laser produces different wavelengths of laser light energy to effectively remove hair for all skin types.
