What is LASER HAIR REMOVAL?

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.

HOW EFFECTIVE IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL FOR UNWANTED HAIR

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.

RISKS & SIDE EFFECTS FOR LASER HAIR REMOVAL

At La Derma , we only use treatments which have been assessed & approved by top regulators in India & across the world. Also our doctors make sure that any risks / side effects associated with the Laser Hair Removal is clearly communicated beforehand.

Laser Hair removal does not generally have side effects. It is completely safe and a long-tested method. The machines used are USFDA approved. However, under rare circumstances it may lead to:

  • Inflammation & irritation: it may cause temporary redness & swelling, but even when they occur, they generally disappear within a few hours.
  • Skin Color changes: Laser hair removal may lead to lightening or darkening of the skin, but this is again very rare. The pigmentation changes may be temporary or long term.
  • Excessive hair growth around the treated area may happen again in rare cases.

These are the reasons why you should ensure that you hair removal is performed only under the supervision of a really good skin specialist. They can ensure the minimization of these risks and also put you at ease regarding how to handle them, given the minimal chances that they do occur.

PREPARING FOR LASER HAIR REMOVAL :CHECK-LIST

Make sure that you know about the pre-treatment ''Dos And Don'ts'' for the Laser Hair Removal. Ask your doctor for the preparation checklist if available.

Unwanted body hair is a secondary sexual characteristic and the hairs appear after you have attained puberty. You must therefore be post-pubertal to go ahead with laser hair removal.

There are no absolute lifestyle changes that you need to take before going ahead with laser hair removal. However, some things that would help with the avoidance of any unwanted side effects are:

  • no blood thinning supplements like aspirin to be taken for 2 weeks before a treatment session
  • no smoking means lesser chances of bruising etc.
  • check with your specialist if any of the products in your skin care routine can interfere with the treatment results.

The most important thing is to not shave or wax before you come for your treatment session. The hair needs to be visible

AFTER CARE FOR LASER HAIR REMOVAL

For better results, our expert will suggest some after-treatment care which needs to be followed properly.

Specific after-care is required only in case you see redness or feel mild burning sensation. Skin-calming agents prescribed by your dermatologist can be used given the small chance that these occur.

Permanent hair removal with lasers is a time-tested and effective technique, performed under the guidance of specialist doctors.
