Laser Hair Removal

laser-hair-removal

Unwanted hair can be an inconvenience for many due to aesthetic or hygiene factors, this can be removed with the help of laser hair removal treatment from any part of your body. Unlike the conventional treatments for hair removal, laser treatment is long lasting and a permanent solution. Our centre uses Nd YAG laser machine for this treatment. Laser technology has made a revolutionary change in the field of cosmetology, with the introduction of this advanced laser machine.

Laser hair removal in details

It is a medical procedure that uses a laser — an intense, pulsating beam of light — to remove unwanted hair.

During laser hair removal, a laser beam passes through the skin to an individual hair follicle. The intense heat of the laser damages the hair follicle, which inhibits future hair growth.

Laser hair removal is most effective for people who have light skin and dark hair.

Although it effectively slows hair growth, it doesn’t guarantee permanent hair removal; 80-90% hair reduction happens. It typically takes several laser hair removal treatments to provide an extended hair-free period. Periodic maintenance treatments might be needed as well.

bookingLaser hair removal is used to remove unwanted hair. Common treatment locations include legs, armpits, upper lip, chin and bikini line. However, it’s possible to treat unwanted hair in nearly any area — except the eyelid or surrounding area.

Hair color and skin type influence the success of laser hair removal.

For example, it is most effective for people who have light skin and dark hair because the laser beam targets the pigment (melanin) in the hair. However, advances in technology have made laser hair removal an option for people who have darker skin.

The most common side effects of laser hair removal include:

  • Skin irritation. Temporary discomfort, redness and swelling are possible after laser treatment. Any signs and symptoms typically disappear within several hours.
  • Pigment changes. This might darken or lighten the affected skin, usually temporarily. Skin lightening primarily affects those who have darker skin, especially if an incorrect laser is used at an incorrect setting.

It is not recommended for the eyelid or surrounding area, due to the possibility of severe eye injury.

What are the Preparations

The consultation with our specially trained dermatologists.

  • Review your medical history, including medication use
  • Discuss risks, benefits and expectations, including what laser hair removal can and can’t do for you
  • Take photos to be used for before-and-after assessments and long-term reviews

bookingAt the consultation, be sure to discuss a treatment plan and treatment costs. The doctor will also offer specific tips to prepare for laser hair removal.

For example:

  • Stay out of the sun. A tan increases the risk of side effects, such as skin lightening. If you have a tan — either from sun exposure or sunless tanning products — wait until the tan fades completely before undergoing laser hair removal.
  • Avoid plucking, waxing and electrolysis. These hair removal methods can disturb the hair follicle and interfere with laser hair removal. Shaving is OK, however, since it preserves the hair shaft and follicle. In fact, shaving might even be recommended. Some studies suggest that shaving before laser hair removal improves results.

Before the prodecure, the hair in the treatment area might be trimmed with a pair of scissors. You might also be fitted with special goggles to protect your eyes from the laser beam. The doctor might apply a topical anesthetic to your skin to reduce any discomfort during treatment.

During the procedure

The doctor will press a hand-held laser instrument to your skin. Depending on the type of laser, a cooling device on the tip of the instrument or a cool gel might be used to protect your skin.

When the doctor activates the laser, the laser beam will pass through your skin to the tiny sacs (follicles) where hair growth originates. The intense heat from the laser beam damages the hair follicles, which inhibits hair growth. Some discomfort in the skin is possible, and you’ll likely feel a sensation of cold from the cooling device or gel.

Treating a small area, such as the upper lip, might take only a few minutes. Treating a larger area, such as the back, might take several hours.

After the procedure

You might notice redness and swelling for the first few hours after this treatment.

To reduce any discomfort, apply ice to the treated area. Your doctor might also suggest an aloe gel or other type of cream or lotion, as well as over-the-counter pain relievers. If you have a skin reaction immediately after laser hair removal, the doctor might apply a steroid cream to the affected area.

After the treatment, avoid sun exposure — both natural sunlight and tanning beds. When your skin has healed, use sunscreen whenever you’re in the sun.

You might also prepare yourself for possible hair shedding in the first few weeks after treatment. Don’t mistake this for hair regrowth.

Laser Hair Removal Treatment Result

Results of this treatment vary greatly from person to person.

bookingUsually 6-8 sessions are required to get a desirable result. Some cases it has gone up to 10-12 sessions. Any remaining hair will definitely be lighter and softer and controlled by occasional maintenance.
