Well, I won’t keep you waiting and ramble on and on. The answer is YES and NO. But this answer confuses you further. Doesn’t it? Well, I am going to clarify everything in a moment.
Laser hair removal in Abu Dhabi and elsewhere works its magic by heating up the follicles of hair. It puts the hair follicles in a state of dormancy for a long duration and prohibits it from growing further. Most women are able to get rid of unwanted hair for life but for others, the hair grows back within a few years but the new growth is lighter, finer, and fewer in number. That’s a catch for sure. The procedure is often touted as a permanent hair removal option but the results can vary from person to person. Regardless, it’s a much better option than shaving, epilating and other hair restoration methods and is cost effective in the long run. It is important that you choose a board certified dermatologist for getting the procedure done.
Laser hair removal in Abu Dhabi makes use of a high-heat laser beam that heats up and damages the hair follicles. They are found just below the skin. Once, the follicles will be destroyed, the hair production will be temporarily disabled. By contrast, other hair removal methods remove the hair from the surface. Hence, your hair grows back right after. These methods don’t target hair-producing follicles.
Earlier, laser hair removal worked for people with darker hair colors and lighter skin tones but today laser can work for people with dark skin tones as well. Lasers target the melanin found in the hair, hence, if you have light colored hair, it won’t work effectively. Even if some hairs aren’t removed, the lightening of their color can reduce the appearance of hair on the skin.
Over all, it is a quick process. The dermatologist will take less than an hour to laser off the hair, all over your body and smaller areas (upper lips, chin) take a few minutes. The dermatologist may or may not use a topical anesthetic depending on your pain tolerance.
You cannot expect to be hair free in a single session. Follow-up treatments are necessary to get the most out of laser hair removal in Abu Dhabi or elsewhere. The exact number varies with each individual depending on the thickness and density of hair. Normally, these sessions are spaced six weeks apart. On average, people get 5 to 7 sessions. After each session, you’ll notice that hair becomes less and less noticeable until your skin becomes silky soft.
Depending on your individual needs and hair growth rate, you may need one or two maintenance sessions every two years. The maintenance sessions only last a few minutes because you are not targeting your entire body but focusing on a few patches which require your attention.
Although laser hair removal in Abu Dhabi or elsewhere isn’t exactly permanent for everyone, it’s certainly the best option for hair removal. Most of the dermatologists recommend laser for getting rid of unwanted hair.
