About Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is a cosmetic procedure that uses a concentrated beam of light (laser) to remove unwanted hair. It works by targeting the pigment (melanin) in hair follicles, damaging them and inhibiting future hair growth.

How it Works

  1. The laser emits light that is absorbed by melanin in the hair.
  2. This light energy is converted into heat, which damages the hair follicles.
  3. Damaged follicles are unable to produce new hair or the hair grows back finer and lighter.
  • Precision: Lasers can selectively target dark, coarse hairs while leaving surrounding skin undamaged.
  • Speed: Each pulse of the laser takes a fraction of a second and can treat many hairs at once.
  • Predictability: Most people experience permanent hair reduction after several sessions.
  • Less ingrown hairs: Reduces the occurrence of ingrown hairs, a common problem with shaving and waxing.

Laser hair removal can be used on most areas of the body, including:

  • Face (upper lip, chin, sideburns)
  • Legs
  • Arms
  • Underarms
  • Bikini line
  • Back
  • Chest
  1. Consultation: Your doctor will assess your skin type, hair color, and medical history to determine if laser hair removal is suitable for you.
  2. Preparation: You may need to shave the treatment area beforehand and avoid sun exposure for a few weeks before and after the procedure.
  3. Treatment: The practitioner will apply a cooling gel to the skin and use a handheld laser device to deliver pulses of light to the treatment area. You may feel a slight stinging sensation.
  4. Aftercare: You’ll be given instructions on how to care for your skin after the procedure, which may include applying soothing creams and avoiding sun exposure.

Candidates for Laser Hair Removal

  • Light skin and dark hair
  • All skin tones
  • Individuals with unwanted hair growth
  • Individuals seeking a long-term hair reduction
  • Not for white or grey hair
  • Not for Individuals with unrealistic expectations

Advancements in laser technology now allow for safe and effective treatments for people with a wider range of skin tones, including darker skin. Multiple sessions are usually required to achieve optimal results, as hair grows in cycles. The number of sessions will vary depending on the area being treated and individual factors.
