It’s high time you should get to know about laser hair removal treatment.
But there are certain things that you should know before getting your laser treatment done.
What Is Laser Hair Removal Treatment?
It is a permanent, painless, fast and highly safe procedure for removing all the unwanted hair from your body making it smooth and hairless. It is a common cosmetic procedure. With the help of advanced laser systems and devices, a beam of laser light is concentrated into the hair follicle. Thus the pigment in the follicles absorbs light that destroys the hair. The growth of hair follicles gets inhibited without damaging or disrupting the skin’s surface.
Which All Body Part Can Be Treated?
Laser treatment is used to remove unwanted hair from the face, leg, arm, underarm, bikini line, and other areas.
What Are The Benefits?
Benefits of laser hair removal include:
- Precision: It is highly targeted, thus the surrounding skin is not damaged.
- Speed: The laser pulse takes the only fraction of seconds to treat the many hairs in a very small time.
- Predictability: The hair loss is permanent for patients who have attended three to seven sessions.
Non-invasive: It is safe for all skin types and there is no risk of allergies.
Different Types Of Lasers
- Diode: It is very effective for light and dark skin.
- Alexandrite: It is f patients who have light-to-olive complexions.
- Nd:YAG: This laser can be used on all skin types, including tanned skin. It is less effective for light or fine hair.
Does It Hurt?
It basically feels like a rubber band snapping your skin.
Things To Do Before The Treatment
Laser hair removal is a medical procedure that requires a lot of care and training to perform. If you are planning to undergo laser hair removal done, there are things you should do before that.
You should limit plucking, waxing, and electrolysis for six weeks before treatment. Before and after six weeks of treatment, you should also avoid exposing yourself in the sun. Sun exposure makes laser hair removal less effective and makes complications after treatment. You should shave off the hair before going for the treatment. It is very important to get a test patch on your skin by the doctor on the very first appointment.
Be careful about your eyes. The lasers are very dangerous for your eyes. Any medication that is photosensitive should be stopped one week prior to the treatment.
How Long Does It Take?
Everybody has different types of skin, so the number of sessions it takes varies per individual. Laser removal works depending on the active growth of hair. Different parts of the body have different growth rates, it depends on the spot you’re getting the treatment done. On the whole, it takes around eight sessions for permanent hair removal.
What To Do After The Treatment?
Avoid exposing to the sun and use sunscreen. Do not shave after the treatment and do not apply perfumes and deodorants.
