SUITABLE FOR ALL!

Both men and women seek laser hair removal to get unwanted hair removed.

How Does it Work?

Laser hair reduction is a non-invasive procedure, by which unwanted hair are removed from any part of the body by utilizing a long pulsed laser.

The primary principle behind laser hair removal is selective photothermolysis (SPTL), the matching of a specific wavelength of light and pulse duration to obtain optimal effect on a targeted tissue with minimal effect on surrounding tissue. Lasers can cause localized damage by selectively heating dark matter or melanin. Hence, it targets the hair follicle, while not heating the rest of the skin. Dark objects absorb light, so laser energy can be absorbed by dark material in the skin, but with much more speed and intensity.

THE ROOT OF THE PROBLEM

Hair grows in cycles, and many factors influence its growth, Age, ethnicity, medications, hormones levels, and even location of the hair on the body influence the length, coarseness and colour of hair.

  • Anagen is the active growing phase in which the hair bulb is intact. The hair grows in both directions, upward and downwards
  • Catagen is the regression phase when the lower part of the hair stops growing but is not shed, and the body absorbs the lower third of the follicle.
  • Telogen is the resting phase. The hair bulb is no longer present and is now a club hair which will fall out or be pushed out of the follicle by the new anagen growing hair.

HENCE, LASER NEEDS MULTIPLE SESSIONS TO TARGET ALL HAIR. 6-8 SESSIONS OVER A PERIOD OF 8-12 MONTHS ARE RECOMMENDED

LASTING REDUCTION

The US : FDA has approved the process as "Permanent Reduction" which means that one shouldn't expect laser to remove every single hair from an area. Some might need touch up treatments once or twice a year after the initial set of treatments for any new growth the body may develop.

HAIR LESS BUT NOT CARELESS

Following precautions are expected from a patient during the course of the entire treatment.

  • No waxing or removing hair from the root by any other way.
  • After treatment is completed, aloe vera should be applied to soothe the skin.
  • Exfoliating and/or scrubbing gently in the shower with a loofa after the treatment may help speed up the shedding process of hair.

WILL THERE BE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?

There are no lasting side effects of laser hair removal on a healthy body. However , one might experience the following immediately after the treatment:

  • Normal itching during the treatment
  • Temporary Redness
  • Temporary Swelling
  • Pain, Tingling or Feeling of Numbness

HOW ABOUT REDUCING THE DENSITY OF THE HAIR AND NOT COMPLETELY REMOVING THEM?

Yes, This can be achieved. Please contact our doctors who will help you with the process and consult accordingly.

 

FAQ'S
Que.What is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal is a non-invasive procedure by which unwanted hair are removed from any part of the body by utilizing a long pulsed laser.

The laser parameters are carefully defined by studying the anatomy of the hair follicle and precisely matching the laser light and pulse duration to the follicle size, depth and location to inhibit the re-growth of the hair.

Laser hair removal is performed by a specially-trained laser technician or a doctor, who directs the light of a long pulsed laser onto the skin. The laser works by destroying hair that are in their active growth phase at the time of treatment. Since other hair will enter their growth cycle at different times, several sessions are necessary to destroy all of the follicles in a treatment area.
