Laser Hair Reduction

Lasers provide with a quick, safe, non-invasive, and the easiest way to bid goodbye to unwanted body hair. Laser technologies that are used for hair reduction cause thermal damage and destroy the hair follicles preventing the hair from growing back.

To achieve a smooth, silky skin opt for the advanced laser hair reduction technologies at Dermaworld Skin Clinics in Delhi. Laser is an effective, efficient, and relatively pain-free method as compared to other traditional hair removal techniques.

Waxing is a painful exercise and often leaves with post-burn sensation, the razor can cause cuts, ingrown hair, and both of them do not provide with long-lasting results. Full body laser hair, has many advantages, as it can be used in almost all parts of the body.

How do Lasers work?
The laser light that is targeted into the skin is converted into the heat that damages the hair bulb and hair follicles. The cooling mechanism also helps to cool down the temperature of the skin during the treatment. The melanin pigment present in the hair follicles absorb the laser light and the hair follicles are destroyed. Lasers deliver with precision, and this selective targeting of the hair leaves the surrounding skin undamaged. This makes the treatment minimally invasive. The pulse delivered by the lasers can target many hair at a fraction of a second. This treatment is suitable for all skin types and provides with the best results without any hassle. Modern advanced lasers focus on the pigment of the hair, rather than on the surrounding skin.

NOTE: Regular sessions are recommended, because each hair is at different stages of growth cycle, so regular laser sessions help to make sure that every hair present in the skin is targeted and destroyed.

Pre-treatment precautions

  1. Avoid sunbathing, tanning, and sun exposure as much as possible before the treatment
  2. If there is any tanning, wait till it fades away, before one starts the treatment
  3. Do not perform waxing, epilating, electrolysis, and tweezing before laser treatment. The lasers target the hair root, that is removed temporarily by these methods
  4. One should avoid application of certain creams and ointments before the treatment
  5. Do not get chemical peel treatment prior to laser treatment
  6. Avoid the application of perfumes, moisturizers on the area being treated before the appointment.

* A small patch test must be performed prior to the treatment. This helps to determine that the skin does not suffer from any reaction from the lasers.

* The pregnancy and breastfeeding women are not advised to opt for laser hair removal treatment. The researches and studies do not prove the safety of the laser hair removal for such candidates.

Frequently Asked Questions

Laser technology is one of the most popularly performed techniques to remove unwanted body hair and provide safe, effective, and long-lasting results. The laser heat damages the dark pigment present in the hair follicles, and no damage is caused to the outer skin layer. The treatment must be performed by a trained laser specialist under the supervision of a dermatologist to achieve safe and optimum results. This method also reduces the risks of developing skin rashes, cuts, razor bumps, and ingrown hairs caused by waxing, shaving, etc.

The cost of laser hair reduction treatment depends on the following factors:

  • The target area (legs, face, thighs, underarms) of the body
  • Density or thickness of the hair follicles
  • Number of sessions provided to remove hair
  • Skin tone of the patient
  • Location of the clinic
  • Experience of the doctor
  • Type of laser technology used during the treatment

The growth of hair takes place in three-stages: anagen, catagen, and telogen. The lasers must target the hair root at the anagen phase to achieve long-lasting and best results. One can see visible results from the very first session, and depending upon the target area, the number of laser sessions are recommended. For face areas like upper lips, chin, sides of the face, about 3-7 sessions are recommended. For areas like legs, back, chest, about 5-8 sessions are recommended as the hair present in this area are dark and hard. The sessions are performed at an interval of 4-6 weeks, depending on individual hair growth.

Yes, shaving is performed before laser hair reduction treatment. The laser beam damages the stem cells of the hair follicles, and if the surface hair is long, it can cause burns on the skin. Hence, it is suggested to perform shaving before the treatment and during the session. One must not perform waxing, plucking, and epilating both before and after laser sessions.

Laser hair reduction provides long-lasting results as compared to traditional hair removal treatments. During the treatment, the laser beams damage the melanin and cells present in the hair follicles. The treatment does not cause bleeding or cuts. The numbing cream is also applied at the target area, and the laser beam feels like rubber band snatching on the skin, and the pain is also manageable. After the treatment, ice is applied to cool and manage the pain. One must always apply sunscreen after treatment to protect the skin from sun damage.
