The dark pigment in the hair follicles absorbs the heat from the laser resulting in destruction of the follicles and preventing the hair from re-growing. The hair follicle must contain some color pigment to be destroyed, the darker the hair the better the reduction. The GMAX can also reduce lighter colored hair better then any IPL system. As a general rule the hair must be darker then the surrounding skin.
