Lasers used for hair removal are absorbed by Melanin located in the hair follicles. The GentleLase & GentleYAG system, a revolutionary Alexanrite & long-pulse high energy laser emits a beam of light that passes through the skin to the hair follicles where it is absorbed. The laser energy is transformed into heat. This destroys the hair follicle leaving the surrounding skin unaffected. After a series of treatments the follicles become sterile which prevents the reproduction of further hair growth.
