Most of the science fiction movies show that laser is hazardous, and it can burn hair on your skin. Due to this misconception, most of people get frightened of laser treatments. However, laser treatment is a very simple process. The laser is used to send light through the pigment of the hair in the area that receives treatment. This light converts to heat, which damages the hair follicle and bulb. In some cases, the hairs will pop out right when the treatment is being performed. In other cases, the hairs will fall out in the days that follow the procedure. Since the hair follicle is damaged, it will not grow back.
Laser treatment can be used on any part of your body. The procedure is typically used to remove unwanted hair in the armpits, legs, arms, bikini line, upper lip, chin. The treatment cannot be performed around the eyes, so it is not possible to use for eyebrows and eyelashes.
