Laser Hair Removal is a system whereby light of a specific energy band is pulsed on to the skin to be treated; the light is selectively taken up by the pigment melanin which is concentrated in the hair shaft and root. The energy delivered is converted into intense heat which damages the hair root without affecting the surrounding skin.
Practically any area on the face and body can be treated, from large areas like the back and legs to the smallest such as the nostrils, ears and eyebrows. Laser works best on dark hair as the target for the energy, and may have to be used during the course of your program. Since these systems use light and not any other type of radiation, they are safe in pregnancy.
