How Laser Works
Laser fires a concentrated beam of light, which is specifically absorbed by melanin pigment in your hair follicles. This leads to heat production in hair follicles, leading to its destruction.
Laser Hair Reduction Procedure
- Waxing, bleaching or threading should be avoided 4 weeks prior to laser sitting
- Don’t shave the area at least 48 hours prior to laser treatment.
- During the procedure, you will be given protective glasses to wear. After applying gel to the area to be treated laser beam will be given, you will feel slight warmth.
- Apply cool packs or wet compresses after the procedure, followed by a good SPF sunscreen.
- Avoid sun exposure before and after the procedure for at least 1 week
Permanent Hair Reduction Vs Permanent Hair Removal
Permanent hair removal is a misnomer because laser treatments will permanently reduce the total number of hair but they will not result in a permanent removal of all hair. So permanent hair reduction is right term to be used.
Side Effects of Laser Hair Reduction
The modern lasers are usually safe when performed under guidance of a experienced dermatologist. However, some minor side effects may occur after laser hair removal treatments in the form of itching, redness, and swelling around the treatment area. These side effects are usually self-limiting and don’t need any medication.
A detailed medical history followed by a clinical examination is a must so as to first ascertain the cause of unwanted hair growth. If you have excess hair growth over face and body with or without irregular periods, acne or hair loss it can mean hormonal abnormality and you might need to get hormonal tests done before laser.
