Laser Hair Removal

It is a procedure in which laser beams are used to stun the hair cells deep inside the skin, which causes them to slow down their growth and eventually makes them inactive, so that hair growth is inhibited.

If you’re not happy with shaving, tweezing, or waxing to remove unwanted hairlaser hair removal may be an option worth considering. Laser hair removal is one of the most commonly done cosmetic procedures. It beams highly concentrated light into hair follicles. Pigment in the follicles absorb the light. That destroys the hair.



How does it work ?

Diode lasers use the principle of selective phot thermolysis to target specific chromophores in the skin, usually melanin or blood. The lasers damage the chromophores by selectively heating them while leaving surrounding tissue unharmed. When treating unwanted hair, for example, the melanin in the hair follicles is targeted and damaged which results in the disruption of hair growth and regeneration. A diode laser can be complemented by cooling technology, or other pain reducing methods which improve treatment efficacy and patient comfort. Hair grows in several phases (anagen, telogen, catagen) and a laser can only affect the currently active growing hair follicles (early anagen). Hence, several sessions are needed to kill hair in all phases of growth

How many sessions are needed ?

Mostly 6- 10 sessions depending on density, thickness, area etc. Men usually need 8 sessions. More may be required if hair growth is very dense.

What are side effects of this treatment ?

Itching, pink skin, redness, and swelling around the treatment area or swelling of the follicles (follicular edema). Burn is extremely rare. It was more frequent in the older generation of lasers. The new generation of Lasers has a very low risk.

What about the maintenance ?

To maintain, we may need 1 or 2 sessions per year, depending on thickness and density. Sometimes, 1 session every 18 months may be enough.
