Is your body laden with hair growth and you’re desperate to get rid of it? You may have come across many traditional methods of hair removal like shaving, epilators, waxing and threading, but none of these seem to solve the problem of hair growth permanently, unlike lasers. The use of lasers for hair removal has been studied for a number of years. In this procedure, laser light is absorbed by melanin in the hair shaft, damaging the follicular epithelium.
A clinical study evaluated the use of the Diode Laser for hair removal. A study was performed on 100 patients, all of whom had temporary hair loss and 89% had permanent hair reduction. With the gradual use of laser therapy, hair was seen to be thinner and fewer than earlier.
How Laser Hair Therapy Performed?
Laser hair removal is the most convenient, non-invasive method for permanently reducing or removing unwanted facial or body hair. It leaves the skin looking smoother and silkier than waxing, electrolysis or razors and is a gentle technique that can treat larger areas effectively with minimal discomfort and with no downtime. Age, ethnicity, medication, hormone levels and body area affect the length, coarseness and color of body hair, which in turn will influence the results of any cosmetic laser treatment. Today, laser hair removal is one of the most common aesthetic procedures performed in India and all over the world.
A consistent use of laser therapy has shown to cause permanent hair reduction without damaging the epidermis, regardless of skin type.
When an appropriate energy source from laser is directed at the skin, light is primarily absorbed in the hair shaft melanin. Heat is generated and diffuses to the surrounding follicular epithelium. A similar principle applies to laser treatment of vascular lesions, where the heat generated after absorption by haemoglobin is transferred from the blood to the vascular endothelial cells.
The Perfect Candidate for Laser Hair Removal-
- Has unwanted facial or body hair that makes you feel embarrassed.
- Has dark hair and light skin, so laser hair removal is the best technique.
- Is looking for an alternative to waxing, electrolysis, shaving and bleaching.
Benefits of Laser Hair Removal-
Darker hair will absorb more of the laser light and lighter skin allows more transmission of the laser light into the hair follicle.
- Laser hair removal is safe for all parts of the body, including the face, but a protective eye cover is usually used.
- Permanently removing or reducing hair on the legs can save time, money and aggravation on shaving and waxing.
Laser Hair Removal Procedure-
Before your laser hair removal treatment, eyes are covered, to prevent injury to your corneas or retinas. The hair that will be undergoing treatment will be trimmed to minimum length. The skin is massaged with a cold gel or special cooling equipment. This will also make the treatment more effective by facilitating laser penetration through the skin.
Then, a low-energy laser beam is adjusted to your skin color and to the color, thickness, and location of the hair to be removed. A test treatment will first be done by directing a test pulse light to the treatment area. This low energy beam is then passed through the active hair growth follicles one by one, rendering them inactive, instantly and permanently.
After the hair removal session, ice packs, cold water or anti-inflammatory creams may be given, to soothe the treated areas. For best results, three to eight treatment sessions are recommended initially.
