How does laser hair removal affect hair?

The target of laser hair removal and destruction of the hair follicle is to selectively heat the cells in the hair follicles in order to damage them. The energy absorbed by the hair follicle is transformed into heat and it destroys the stem cell so that it cannot grow again. The laser beam applied to the skin within milliseconds is absorbed by the color pigments in the hair follicle without damaging the skin cells. All hair removal lasers delay the growth of the hair and make the hair become weaker and decrease the growth speed.
