Laser Hair Removal
Unwanted hair can be a nuisance. The options for hair removal are smelly hair removal creams, sharp razors or burning wax. Laser hair removal is a hi-tech way of removing hair permanently.
How does laser hair removal work?
The laser heat is led through the hair into the hair follicle which is destroyed and rendered useless in producing new hair.
Does laser hair removal hurt?
No anesthetics are required and I’d describe the sensation as a warm sensation on the skin.
How many laser hair removal treatments will I need?
The number of laser hair removal treatments you will require for optimal long-term benefits depend on the area you wish to have treated, the hair density and your hair growth cycle. Age, ethnicity, weight, hormones, diet, medication and metabolism all play a part in your hair’s location, thickness and resilience.
Laser hair removal slows the growing capacity of follicles in the hair growth cycle at the time of the treatment. Since some hair follicles may enter their growth cycle after your treatment, 3-4 more treatments on an interval of 1-3 months may be required to deliver optimum results.
Do I need to take any special precautions before and after laser hair removal treatment?
It is completely safe so no special precautions are needed. However, it is important not to remove hair 4 weeks before treatment to ensure that as many hair follicles as possible contain hair and can be destroyed by the light.
Since tanning takes place by accumulation of melanin in the skin, it is also essential to avoid tanning before and during the treatment sessions, otherwise, their skin will also absorb the heat which makes treatments less effective.
Generally, no post treatment is necessary but people with sensitive skin will benefit from using a soothing cream for a few days. It is also recommended that you use a sunscreen with SPF 20 for a few weeks following laser hair removal treatment.
