What is Laser Hair Removal?

Safe and effective hair removal from the face, arms, legs, bikini line and back is possible using laser hair removal, which uses a highly focused beam of light (a laser).

The laser emits light at a narrow wavelength during the operation, which the hair follicle pigment absorbs. Because the heat damages the hair follicles, no new hair will grow. Safe and effective because no additional skin tissue is destroyed throughout the process.

Key Advantages

Accuracy: lasers can destroy only the hair follicle, sparing the surrounding skin. Precision reduces skin irritation and discomfort by targeting only the areas that need hair removal.

Long-lasting results: Laser hair removal is preferable to other ways since the effects persist significantly longer than shaving and waxing. After multiple treatments, laser hair removal can permanently reduce hair growth for smoother, hair-free skin.

Time-saving: Laser hair removal can treat greater body areas quickly. Since they don't have to shave or wax, this saves time.

Minimal side effects: Regarding potential complications, laser hair removal is a low-risk, non-invasive process with few, if any, downsides. Mild redness or swelling in the treated area is common but usually disappears within a few hours.

Versatility: Laser hair removal can be done on legs, underarms, bikini line, face and back. Its adaptability makes it a popular alternative for people seeking hair removal in various places.

Is Laser Hair Removal a Good Fit for Me?

Laser hair removal relies on your skin and hair type, medical history, and preferences.

  • The best candidates for laser hair removal have light to medium complexion and thick, dark hair. People with lighter hair colours, including blonde, red, or grey, may not be suitable candidates for the operation because the laser targets the pigment in the hair follicle.
  • Month Two: take 5mg once weeklyWhether or not laser hair removal is viable for you may also depend on your health. Skin cancer or current infections in the treatment area may prevent the procedure.
  • Laser hair removal may not benefit pregnant women or those using light-sensitive drugs.
  • Before removing laser hair, consult a licensed technician or physician to assess your skin and hair type, medical history, and suitability.

Frequently Asked Questions

Blistering, crusting, scarring, and other skin texture changes are rare but possible side effects of laser hair removal. Greying of treated hair or excessive hair growth around treated regions are also rare side effects, especially on darker complexion.

After receiving treatment, you will most likely notice an improvement right away. Individual responses will naturally be different. Results vary depending on hair colour and thickness, area treated, laser type, and skin tone. After the first session, you should see a drop of hair density of 10–25%.

Unwanted hair is more receptive to being cut off during its anagen phase. Other phases, such as the catagen (transition) or telogen (resting) phase, may be partially responsive to laser and IPL therapies. Hair follicles that remain after laser hair removal may have been successful in surviving the initial treatment.

Hair follicles are the intended target of the laser light used in laser hair removal. You might not feel the heat, but it will feel like a rubber band is snapping on your skin. After the operation, you can feel like you got a mild sunburn and have some redness and irritation.
