Laser hair removal provides an excellent and effective solution for people looking to rid themselves of unwanted facial and body hair. However, people with gray, white and blonde hair have been treated less successfully because their hair has too little melanin to be treated effectively. Lasers use naturally occurring melanin in the hair follicle as a target to selectively disable the follicle and prevent hair re-growth. However, lighter hair has too little melanin to provide an effective target for the laser. People with gray, white and blonde hair have not been as suitable candidates for laser hair removal …. until now! Insufficiently pigmented follicles are no longer a problem for laser hair removal!
