Human skin contains hair follicles (a tube-shaped sacs within the skin which produces hair) all over the body except palms, soles, lips. Permanent hair reduction with the help of a laser is USFDA approved technology. LHR uses a beam of light, which will be converted into heat and absorbed by the melanin, a pigment present in hair follicles, destroying it. The damage prevents or retards the development of subsequent hair. ANY part of the body, including the face (chin, upper lip, sideburns), chest, neck, shoulders, arms, legs, back, underarms, and bikini line.

At an urban skin and hair clinic, our experts are using Diode and alexandrite laser hair removal machines. Both of them are FDA approved. Alexandrite has triple wavelength, which makes it more suitable for treating even finer and lighter hairs.

The laser hair removal process uses high-intensity laser beams that transform into heat energy and damage the hair follicles in active growth mode that are located beneath the skin.
