Laser hair removal


A focused light beam (laser) is used in the medical procedure of laser hair removal to remove unwanted hair.

The pigment (melanin) in the hair absorbs the laser light that is emitted during laser hair removal. The light energy is transformed into heat, which harms the skin's hair-producing follicles, which are tube-shaped sacs. Future hair growth is inhibited or delayed by this damage.

Even while laser hair removal efficiently stops hair growth for extended periods of time, it typically doesn't remove hair permanently. For initial hair removal, several laser treatments are required, and follow-up treatments may be necessary.

Why do you need laser hair removal/reduction?

Besides the palms and soles, the skin of our bodies is covered in hair follicles. While the scalp has dense hair (referred to in medical terminology as "terminal hairs"), the remainder of the body contains follicles with fine hair (vellus hair). While females may have dense hair in the armpits, legs, and vaginal area , males may have thick hair growth across the whole surface of their bodies, particularly in the armpit, chest, back, and groyne areas.

Hormonal changes may cause thick hair to grow on other parts of the face, chest, stomach, or even hands in diseases like PCOD or thyroid imbalance. The present thick hair growth must be treated with lasers since it is the only practical alternative in order to inhibit more aggressive hair growth caused by the hormone imbalance.

Do guys require laser therapy?

Yes, of course, male patients may also require laser hair removal if their appearances and personality are negatively impacted by the growth of hair on undesirable body regions.

It is suggested that a laser hair removal therapy be used to prevent the recurrence of problems like pilonidal sinus in those who have those conditions or are being treated for them.

What equipment is used for laser hair removal or reduction?

Although there are many various laser hair removal equipment available, only the diode laser can effectively remove unwanted hair.

Another laser device used in laser hair removal is called IPL, or intense pulsed light. IPL can only be used to remove fine hair since it can only locate and target vellus hair follicles (baby hairs in common terms).

Can skin be burned or hurt during laser hair removal or reduction?

Definitely not! It is a painless and highly pleasant procedure since medical grade FDA certified equipment have an integrated cryogenic cooling system for the probe head.

Literally, you may finish the session during your afternoon break and return to your workplace to continue working.

What precautions should be taken following laser hair removal?

It is a carefree treatment as there is no special aftercare required; the only need is that you wear sunscreen often. Sunscreen use will both protect your skin and is a recommended daily skin care practise for everyone, whether or not they choose to have laser therapy.

How many sessions are needed to remove or reduce hair using lasers?

Each patient has a unique skin and hair type, much like every other patient. The needed number of treatments might vary, but for female 6-7 sessions should serve good reduction of both fine hair and thick hair follicles and 8-9 sessions for males. The doctor will be able to give you an indication of how many further sessions you might need if the hair shaft is particularly thick or there are several follicles.
