One of the issues that can affect the overall appearance of a person are unwanted hair on the body. These are present both in men and women. While men tend to feel masculine with their presence, women generally do not like any locks that are not on the scalp. Some men want the brushy appearance of their body hair to be lessened to appear better.
Laser hair removal is the perfect solution for both the sexes. The treatment works perfectly in removing the hair permanently. Unlike the commonly used treatments, it does not cause ingrown hair or infections. Let’s learn more about the laser hair removal Dubai to better understand.
The treatment process
The treatment process is pretty simple. The laser is set a specific wavelengths in order to target the dark matter in the follicles which is the melanin. As the laser heats up the melanin, the follicle shrinks and eventually loses its ability to reproduce hair. The settings are such that the skin tissue nearby is minimally affected by the laser and the energy is absorbed by the follicles.
For the purpose numbing down any sensations of pain, a cooling gel is usually applied to the area to be treated. In order to fully remove the unwanted hair, usually six to seven treatment sessions are needed. This number can vary in individuals though.
Is everyone a candidate?
Laser hair removal is almost for everyone. People with darker skin tones traditionally were ruled out as candidates but with advancements in laser technology, they can get the treatment with the right machine being used. People with white hair cannot benefit from the treatment since there is no melanin in the hair.
Women that are pregnant or lactating are also advised against the treatment. Currently there is no evidence of ill effects of the laser on the mother or the child, not enough research has been conducted to take a definitive position on the matter.
How does it benefit both genders?
Women typically want to remove the unwanted body hair completely. This can be easily achieved by laser hair removal. Men mostly like to have hair on the body that are not very thick in appearance. Since not all the follicles stop reproducing hair after the first sessions, a lighter appearance of the body hair can be achieved.
What are the main benefits of laser hair removal?
As mentioned above the treatment removes the hair permanently which does not happen with other treatments. At the same time, the procedure is more or less pain free which is again not the case with the more traditional methods of body hair removal.
The risk of infections is almost absent with laser treatment. The sessions only last for a few minutes so they do not take an awfully long time to deliver results. Usually there is no downtime with this treatment and you can get back to work soon after the session is completed with necessary caution. Side effects too are pretty mild and temporary.
