What is Laser Hair Removal Therapy?

Laser hair removal is a medical procedure that uses a laser beam — an intense pulsating beam of light — to remove unwanted hair for men and women, both. The laser beam is a high-capacity light, emitted through an extreme optical amplification process.

During the laser hair removal treatment, a laser beam passes through the skin to an individual hair follicle. The hair follicles are destroyed, so there are rare chances of further development of hair on treated body parts. The intense heat damages the hair follicle, which inhibits future hair growth.

Laser hair removal proves to be most effective for the people who have light skin type with dark hair. If you have been feeling irked with regular shaving, tweezing, and waxing, you can certainly go for this treatment. Though laser hair removal effectively slows down the hair growth, but it doesn’t guarantee permanent hair removal. After some time, the hair may surface again. It typically takes several laser hair removal treatment sessions to provide an extended hair-free period. Periodic maintenance treatment sessions may be needed as well.

Which body parts is Laser Hair Removal Treatment for?

Laser hair removal can be used to remove unwanted hair from these areas –

  • legs
  • armpits
  • upper lip
  • chin
  • bikini line

It’s possible to treat unwanted hair in nearly any area.

The effects & benefits of Laser Hair Removal Therapy

Hair color and skin type influence the success of laser hair removal. For example, laser hair removal is most effective for people who have light skin and dark hair because the laser beam targets the pigment (melanin) in the hair. People who have darker skin can also attempt laser hair removal, but the laser beam may also affect the melanin in the skin.

Laser hair removal isn’t generally effective for white, blond or gray hair — although treatment options for lighter hair continue to be investigated.

Accuracy – With the deployment of the laser beam, it becomes convenient to target the desired hair follicles, without damaging the color and texture of surrounding skin. Though, you need to affirm the expertise and credentials of the dermatologist or the doctor performing the treatment. Even a small area over your skin can be treated with the help of the laser beam. Moreover, the doctor can predict the result and the number of required sessions after examining your skin and hair type.

Quick – Laser therapy is known for its speed. The fast laser beam can kill the tissues of unwanted hair in a petite time.

Less painful – In comparison to the traditional and other coexisting hair removal procedures, this one is less painful. Patients usually claim no pain during the treatment.

Are there risks?

Laser hair removal doesn’t guarantee permanent facial hair removal or body hair removal. Some hair may be resistant to the laser treatment or may grow again after treatment — although the new hair growth may be finer and lighter in color.

The most common side effects of laser hair removal for men and women include:

  • Skin irritation. Temporary irritation, crusting or scabbing is possible after laser hair removal.
  • Pigment changes. Laser hair removal may darken or lighten the affected skin, usually temporarily. Skin lightening primarily affects those who have darker skin, especially if an incorrect laser is used at an incorrect setting.
  • The treated skin on your body may look as if it is sunburned. This side effect will surface one or two days after the treatment, and may reside there for a few more days.

Rarely, laser hair removal may cause blistering, scarring or other changes in skin texture.
