The treatment 

To start, your specialist may need to trim the hair in the treatment area. A cooling gel may be applied, as well. The laser’s settings will be modified so that the area of the body, hair thickness, hair color, and skin color are taken into account. The laser penetrates into your skin and targets a few follicles. Based on the response to the test, the practitioner will proceed or reevaluate.
