Laser hair removal from the back is a technique that progressively destroys hair.
Today, all phototypes can be treated, from light to dark skins. The hair, as for them, must be brown or black. To be effective, the laser beam needs the melanin contained in the hair. It is melanin that transforms the laser energy into heat to destroy the hair. When it contains little or no melanin, as is the case with red, very light blond, white or grey hair, laser hair removal is not effective.
In men, the back is an area that can be extremely hairy. In some cases, comments from the people around you can even lead to complexes. Thus, back hair does not have the same characteristics depending on its location:
- Top of the back: they are pigmented and thick;
- Lower back and sides: they are light and fine.
In all cases, the doctor should avoid removing hair from the areas of fine hair to avoid stimulating the hair. It is possible to depilate the back completely or only part of it, such as the shoulders or lower back.
