Diode laser hair removal is the best option for laser hair removal, according to Dr. Lee Laris. He is especially fond of the LightSheer™. The machine heats the hair bulb and hair follicle, which damages the hair follicles so that they don't grow well. The hair will grow back thinner and weaker.
Laser hair removal takes more than one session for this reason. Multiple visits are needed to target new hair bulbs and hair follicles that are prime for hair removal treatment. Gradually the hair bulbs and hair follicles have been weakened enough by the hair removal treatment.
