Hair removal is easier than ever before and the results can be near-permanent. Laser treatments were made available for hair removal after 1998 and are growing in popularity. Laser hair removal works by exposing the hair follicles to pulses of laser light that destroy the follicle.
The science behind laser hair removal is called selective photothermolysis (SPTL). SPTL matches a type of light wavelength to the type of tissue to be targeted. Specific wavelengths of light can be used to damage hair whilst having little-to-no effect on surrounding tissue.
In the experienced hands of a practitioner like Dr. Perhez Jaffer, laser hair removal can achieve long-term results.
