Laser hair removal is a type of laser treatment meant to permanently remove hair regardless of follicle depth. The laser used in treatment is a long-pulsed dye laser which releases rapid pulses of energy that penetrate the skin and target dark hair follicles.

Although laser hair removal is not usually considered permanent, studies have shown that areas, where the hair is removed by lasers, can generally remain hair-free longer than by most other methods. Lasers most effectively disable hair that is in the anagen or active growth phase. Lasers emit a powerful beam of light that is absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicles. The laser pulses for a fraction of a second, just long enough to vaporize the pigment while minimizing damage to the surrounding skin. The hair follicles absorb the laser energy impairing the ability to grow new hair.
