Hair is a boon when it is at desired place, but a bane when at undesired place. Our lifestyle has changed. We may not mind spending hours per week to remove unwanted hair in the past, but now we simply do not have that much time. We want to get rid of unwanted hair — and we want it fast.
Although, cosmetic clinics have been using lasers for skin tightening and laser skin rejuvenation, hair removal is by far the most popular cosmetic use of this concentrated light. Is it a hype, or lasers are really good at this job? Let us examine.
How laser hair removal permanently removes hair?
Traditional hair removal procedures target hair — and it is absolutely logical. But what makes laser hair removal a stand out procedure is that its main target is hair follicles — the root of the hair. When laser light is applied to the desired area, it projects a beam which is absorbed by the pigment (the darker matter) in hair follicles, while the surrounding skin tissues remain intact. This absorbed heat of laser imparts the ability of follicles to grow hair. In this way, it helps you in getting rid of your excess hair.
How permanent the results are?
The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have approved laser hair removal for the permanent reduction of hair. It may leave tiny, difficult to notice hair, but an overwhelming majority of people is very satisfied with the results and regards it quite permanent. Even if some hairs grow after few years, you will need considerably fewer laser sessions to get rid of them.
How many laser sessions are needed for permanent hair removal?
Laser hair removal is a permanent hair reduction technique. It means each sitting for your laser treatment will shed some more hairs permanently. It requires multiple sessions to effectively treat the required area. The average is five sessions. Actually, our hairs grow in cycles. When some hairs are in their growth state, some are in dormant state. Laser can target only those hairs, which are in their growth state. That’s why multiple sessions are needed. You will be requested to come for laser therapy after 4-6 weeks. The exact number of sessions depends on the area under treatment and your unique hair growth ability. Your dermatologist will guide you after consultation.
Are there any side effects of this procedure?
Lasers in good hands are nothing less than a miracle. Laser hair removal is a seasoned and safe procedure. However, laser in wrong hands can be dangerous. To avoid any unwanted side effects, it is necessary that you choose an experienced and qualified dermatologist and a reputed clinic for your therapy.
