Laser Hair RemovalA post shared by Anil Shah MD (@shahaesthetics) on Jun 5, 2018 at 3:21pm PDTLaser Hair Removal works by targeting melanin in the hair follicle area. Melanin is what gives hair its color. Eumelanin provides black or brown pigment while, pheomelanin provides blonde and red pigment to the hair follicles. It is for this reason that lasers target darker hair follicles. Therefore, people with blonde, red or grey hair would not be ideal candidates and would have to seek alternative options.For more information about the Science of Laser Hair Removal, please click here.
