Does Laser Hair Removal completely get rid of hair?

         In today’s beauty trend, girls want to be beautiful and have clean skin but have hair as an obstacle. Some people rely on plucking or shaving methods because they are easy. The thing that follows is the inflammation of the skin. Also, using hair removal chemicals may cause inflammation and irritation. Girls now prefer laser hair removal until the hair follicle is destroyed and permanently eliminated.

There are 2 methods for permanent Hair Removal

       1. The electrolysis method uses the needle inserted into the hair follicles individually and releases the electric current to destroy the hair roots. This method is painful and time-consuming because they must insert the needle into the hair follicle individually. The risk of scarring is relatively high because inserting the needle into the hair root is a random insertion method without knowing where the hair root is. This method may leave scars after treatment.

The light can destroy specific hair roots since the hair follicle area has a color-creating cell called Melanocyte, which acts as a light conductor or a light energy absorber to the hair follicle area
