Don’t we all just hate unwanted facial and body hair? The traditional methods of hair removal like shaving and waxing don’t seem to be helping much because they cause pain and harm to our skin. However, there’s good news for you. Cosmetic care and procedures have evolved to a new level. Now, you don’t need to visit a spa every week to wax out the body hair.
Laser hair removal can help you get rid of unwanted hair so you don’t have to shave them every week. It is becoming a popular treatment because of its effectiveness. We can say this confidently because of the satisfaction and smiles we have seen on the faces of people who had the procedure.
What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is a simple and speedy procedure in which pulses of laser light are delivered to hair follicles to remove the unwanted hair. The laser beam destroys the hair follicles.
Who is the Ideal Candidate?
Laser hair removal treatment works best on people with lighter skin tone and darker hair because such hair is easily detected due to the high amount of melanin in it. Lasers work their best on dark hair. However, lasers are able to detect dark hair on dark skin tones as well.
How it is Performed?
The treatment area is cleaned using cotton swabs. Topical numbing cream is applied so you don’t experience any discomfort. However, general anaesthesia or local anaesthesia are not used because the procedure does not involve any significant pain that is unbearable. Your laser therapist will use a handheld device to carefully deliver the pulses of the laser beam into the skin.
The laser causes controlled damage to the roots by heating them. As particles of lasers are absorbed by melanin (Melanin naturally exists in our skin that gives color to our skin and hair) in the hair follicle, it gets destroyed. It prevents the hair to grow out of the same root in the future. Your therapist will make sure that lasers don’t cause damage to the surrounding tissues, but only selected hair follicles.
What Should I Expect after Treatment?
Laser hair removal is a quick procedure to produce desired results. The treated hair will fall out within the month of treatment. However, the treated skin may appear sunburned. Cool compresses and moisturizers will help you to escape the discomfort. You may experience blisters or redness but these effects would subside within a day or two.
Although blisters are rarely formed after the treatment they are more common in people with darker skin tones. If blisters appear, avoid wearing makeup. Scarring or itching are some side effects, but they are also temporary. Your skin color may change temporarily, so you should use a strong sunscreen to limit it.
