Laser hair removal Chicago is an increasingly popular cosmetic procedure designed to drastically reduce hair growth in areas considered unsightly. The technique uses specially designed lasers to safely burn away leg hair. This affects not only the surface hairs but even the follicles, which are located under the skin. This halts unwanted hair growth at its source. Once the now severed hairs are shed the pores they once occupied close up, stymying future growth in that area. The result is a stubble surface that is smooth and uniform both to the eye and to the touch.
