What is the definition of photo-epilation or photo-thermolysis?.

“Photo” means light and “thermolysis” means destroying with heat.

Thus the act of removing hair with light.

How does it work? A gentle beam of light energy is emitted by the laser, or flashlamp light (IPL) and delivered to the skin.

This light passes through the skin to a group of hair follicles where it is absorbed by the chromophore dark melanin in the hair. The three skin chromophores are melanin, haemoglobin and water.
