Women develop excessive body or facial hair due to higher-than-normal levels of male hormones. Male hormones are called androgens, and they include testosterone. All females produce androgens, but the levels normally remain low. Certain medical conditions can cause a woman to produce too many androgens, causing male-pattern hair growth and other unwanted male characteristics, such as a deep voice.
Excessive or unwanted hair that grows on a woman’s body and face is called hirsutism. All women have facial and body hair, but this hair is usually very fine and light in color.

Melanin and its importance:
This is because the black pigment or melanin is absent in hair that is gray or white. The presence of melanin enables the hair to absorb the laser rays extremely well. Since nerves, blood vessels and other structures within the skin do not possess melanin no harm is caused to them.
Method of hair removal:
The laser probe is placed on the surface of the skin. The rays that are passed are then absorbed by the melanin present in the papilla of the hair. Thus, the hair follicles present in this region are destroyed due to the severe heat generated in the area by the laser beam.
