There are so many options when it comes to body hair removal but all of them have their ups and downs. You can easily and quickly get rid of your body hair by shaving but it’s a guarantee that the hair will be back after about 2-3 days. You might opt for waxing as the hair is uprooted from the root and it won’t grow back for a couple of weeks but do you really want to go through all that pain associated with waxing? Or you can choose laser hair removal in Dubai.
What you need to know about laser hair removal
A laser is pulsed on the skin while emitting a beam of light which converts into heat as it passes through the skin. The melanin pigment in the hair follicle and shaft absorbs the heat and this hinders growth. White and grey hair do not respond to the laser hair removal treatment due to their lack of pigment. Thanks to technology all skin shades from Caucasian to African to Asian can be treated for laser hair removal. However if you have tanned skin you need to wait till it fades in order to get the procedure done. This minimizes the risk of blistering and skin discoloration. Laser hair removal can be performed anywhere on the body apart from the eye lashes.
People who’ve gone through the procedure describe it as the feeling you feel when a rubber band is snapped against your skin or a sharp buzz. Smelling the scent of singed hair is normal during the procedure. The area may become sensitive and pink or swell and tender but this fades away quickly.
The hair will begin to grow again after about two weeks but this is not a reason to worry about because they usually fall out within a couple of days. You will need several treatments in order to get rid of the hair permanently. This is because hair grows in cycles.
