Hair removal is the deliberate removal of hair on any portion of the body like the bikini area, armpits, legs, abdomen, back, chest and face. Some people shave, wax or pluck the hairs while others have laser hair removal or electrolysis. Laser hair removal uses beams of laser light energy to target melanin or pigment in the hair follicles. The laser is moved on the skin surface to allow the laser to pass through and target the hair follicles. The laser heat destroys the follicle and deters future hair growth. Electrolysis uses an epilator device inserted into the skin. Shortwave radio frequencies cause existing hair to fall out and inhibit any new hair growth.
