Laser hair removal is a permanent hair removal measure that is commonly used at present. It is based on the principle of photothermal action that penetrates directly into the surface layer of the skin and keeps the hair follicles at a certain temperature, which helps to inactivate the hair follicles and the surrounding stem cells, not only to achieve permanent hair removal, but also to make the skin more polished and delicate.

The temperature of the skin will rise during the treatment, which may result in slight damage to the stratum corneum, easily causing slight redness and stinging of the skin, which usually disappears soon after the application of the restorative solution.
