Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is a highly effective way to remove unwanted hair from various parts of the body, including the face, arms, legs, bikini area, back and more. Here are some of the benefits of laser hair removal:

  • Long-lasting results: Laser hair removal provides long-lasting results compared to other hair removal methods. Most people experience a significant reduction in hair growth after just a few sessions.
  • Precision: The laser targets the hair follicle directly, leaving the surrounding skin undamaged. This makes it an ideal method for removing hair from sensitive areas.
  • Speed: Laser hair removal is a quick procedure that can treat large areas of the body at once. This makes it a time-efficient method for hair removal.
  • Reduced hair growth: Over time, laser hair removal can reduce hair growth significantly. This means that you will need fewer touch-up treatments in the future.
  • You will need minimum six treatments or more as a protocol to see reduction in hair growth.

    The Process of Laser Hair Removal Laser hair removal involves the use of a highly concentrated beam of light that targets the hair follicle. The heat from the laser damages the hair follicle, which inhibits future hair growth. Here's what you can expect during the treatment:

  • Consultation: Before the treatment, you will have a consultation with a licensed laser hair removal technician. They will assess your skin type and hair color to determine the best course of treatment and ask you to shave the area before you come for your treatment.
  • Preparation: Before the treatment, and a cooling gel will be applied onto the shaved skin.
  • Treatment: During the treatment, the technician will use a handheld laser device to target the hair follicle. You may feel a slight discomfort, but the procedure is generally painless.
  • Post-treatment: After the treatment, you may experience some redness and swelling in the treated area. You can apply ice, aloe gel or aqua-hot to the area to reduce any discomfort.
  • And here's what to do after your treatment and between sessions:

  • Do apply an ice-pack on the treated area to reduce pain, discomfort or irritation.
  • Do apply aloe vera gel or calming creams for 3 days after the treatment.
  • Do wear loose clothes to avoid friction on the treated area for 48 hours.
  • Do keep treated area clean and dry for 48 hours.
  • Do drink plenty of water.
  • Do use at least SPF 50 sunscreen with Zinc for at least 2 weeks.
