Laser hair removal Albuquerque, NM – How does it work?

Heat emitted by the laser targets the color in the hair follicle known as melanin. Permanent hair reduction involves heating the root of the hair. By heating the root of the hair, we can destroy the cells that produce it. The root of the hair acts like a “lighting rod” for the laser. The heat of the laser travels down the follicle and destroys the root.
