They work best on people with dark hair and light skin, but thanks to advances in these devices they are suitable for anyone.
How does laser chin hair removal work?
Laser chin hair removal works by sending light to the hair follicles that is absorbed by the melanin pigment.
The light then turns into heat, which damages the hair follicles and causes the hair to not grow back.
This technique may also help prevent hair from growing below the surface of the skin.
This process only takes about 5 to 10 minutes since this area is smaller than other parts of the body such as the chest or legs.
