Tired of shaving, waxing and tweezing hair after hair off your body? Sick of them coming back every now and then? Well, you’re not alone. All of us go through this dilemma of having unwanted body hair and trying different methods to get rid of them.
But luckily, more long-lasting solutions like laser hair removal are gaining popularity. You can rid the body of any unwanted hair for once and all. If you too are looking for a Laser Treatments Clinic in Abu Dhabi or elsewhere then here’s what you need to know before making an appointment.
It Works Best on Dark Hair & Light Skin!
Laser wavelengths don’t really target the hair but a pigment called melanin found inside them. Since the contrast between the color of hair and that of the skin is what allows a laser device to easily identify its target, a laser hair removal achieves the best results on a light-colored skin with dark hair.
Hairs are loaded with a pigment called melanin, which is found in highest concentration in dark hair. This can be easily detected by a laser light, making it easier to get rid of them. However, this does not mean that lighter hair, such as blonde or gray, cannot be successfully treated with laser. You’ll simply need a higher number of sessions to get rid of your hair completely.
You’ll Need Several Treatments
You can’t walk into a dermatologist’s clinic all hairy and then expect to come out clean and smooth. No, that’s not how it works.
Laser hair removal isn’t a one-time treatment, in fact, you will be required to make multiple appointments with your dermatologists before you can achieve optimal results. Typically, six to eight sessions are needed before all hair follicles are killed. Experts suggest you remain consistent with your appointments and space them evenly every four to six weeks.
You May Experience Some Irritation
Once you have had your laser treatment, you may experience some redness and irritation in the treated area. This is perfectly normal. Using ice packs cool compresses can help you overcome most of this. Just ensure you stay out of the sun and drink plenty of water and the irritation will dissipate in a few days.
You May NOT Lose All Hair
It may happen that even after multiple laser sessions, some fine hair remains on your body. It isn’t always the case, but it does happen for some women. However, you don’t have to worry about them so much because, with most hair gone, the few that remain behind are easier to manage. They are also not very noticeable so there’s usually no reason to worry.
