Laser hair removal is a medical procedure that uses a concentrated beam of light (laser) to remove unwanted hair.During laser hair removal, a laser emits a light that is absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in the hair. The light energy is converted to heat, which damages the tube-shaped sacs within the skin (hair follicles) that produce hairs. This damage inhibits or delays future hair growth. Laser hair removal is used to reduce unwanted hair. Common treatment locations include legs, armpits, upper lip, chin and the bikini line. However, it's possible to treat unwanted hair in nearly any area, except the eyelid or surrounding area.

The permanent hair removal treatment will be performed by the dermatologist themselves or may be assisted by trained technicians. The treatment is non-invasive and involves the application of a probe to the correct target areas.
You will meet the dermatologist and they will assess the condition of your hair. They will collect the relevant medical history and also assess the quality of your hair to provide a fair assessment of what you can expect and how permanent hair removal can be.
The dermatologist will provide you a fair idea of the number of sessions you need and the budget involved. You can plan the schedules of your sessions also during this consultation and adjust as you go along.

It is important for you to have realistic expectations when you are going in for any cosmetic treatment. It is the same with laser hair removal in Kolkata. As shared before, it is people with darker, thicker hair and a pale skin tone who can expect the best results.
If you have darker skin and thin hair, the results achieved would not be as good. Overall, you would see a 70-100% reduction in hair growth after laser hair removal. Even the hairs that do persist, would be much finer in nature and maintenance sessions at much longer gaps may be required for some people through life. It is still however, a method that saves you more time over traditional methods, considering the long gaps between maintenance sessions (if required).
Between 2 sessions, you need to allow time for the hair to grow back so that the follicles can be targeted. Hence, you need to wait for 4-6 weeks between sessions and this time frame slightly increases as the sessions go on. After your sessions, you need to be careful about a couple of things. Look for signs of redness, irritation or changes in pigmentation. These are easily manageable and reversible, but you must inform your skin specialist for them to be able to do so. In case the body part you underwent the treatment for is exposed, please do not forget to apply sunscreen. Permanent hair removal does provide very rewarding results.
