Rather than pulling the hair out by the root, or shaving it off at the skin, laser removal destroys the hair follicle, preventing any new hair growth, one hair at a time.

"Laser hair removal is based on wavelengths used to heat up a certain part of the hair follicle to destroy it thus decreasing hair growth," explains Kellett. That may sound painful, but while there might be some discomfort and a few side effects, it is generally pain-free.
