Want to get rid of unwanted hair? Here’s the best solution. Remove unwanted hair from any body part via an effective yet easy technique. Becoming an extremely popular technique for various purposes, the laser hair removal is the treatment that inhibits or delays the growth of unwanted hair through the beam of light. A myth about laser hair removal is that it permanently removes the hair, however, it is otherwise. It just delays or slows down the process of hair growth. The procedure involves the use of a concentrated light beam that the pigment in the hair absorbs. After absorption, this light transforms into heat damaging the hair follicles which hair growth takes place due to.

Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

Having hair-free skin itself is a great benefit of laser hair removal treatment. Its other benefits include

  • Predictable to remove hair permanently after up to seven sessions
  • No skin damages
  • Takes a few seconds to work
  • Targets coarse and dark hairs only
  • Targets many hairs simultaneously
  • Treats an area of a quarter size every second

Ideal Candidates for
Laser Hair Removal

Since the light beam solely targets the pigment of the hair and not of the skin. Thus, it best works when the skin color and hair color are contrasting. Dark hair on light skin is the contrast that will have the best outcomes. This hair-removing treatment is suitable for all skin tones.

On the flip side, hair color, and skin color with little contrast may not produce successful results, and laser treatment for such a contrast has an increased risk of causing skin damage. Light hair colors such as blonde, white, gray, and red are not good at absorbing light so laser is not very effective for people having light hairs. Skin with tattoos is also not suitable for this treatment.

Laser Hair Removal Pre-Procedure Guidelines

The moment you make up your mind to have a laser hair removal treatment, begin taking care of a few things to let your treatment work the best. These few things are as follows:

Laser Hair Removal Procedure

The laser hair removal procedure intrinsically begins prior to the actual procedure. Before initiating the procedure, the technician trims your hair to be removed via laser to a few millimeters above the skin. Then, the technician applies a topical numbing medicine 20 to 30 minutes prior to the procedure. Taking your hair and skin color, hair thickness, and hair location into account, the laser equipment is adjusted accordingly. You and your technician are supposed to wear eye protection to protect your eyes from any adverse waves. Your area to be treated is cooled down with the help of a cooling device to let the laser beam get into the skin thoroughly.

The procedure begins as the technician gives a pulse of light to the treatment area. You will just be observed for a few minutes so it can be gauged that the settings used are the most suitable without causing any bad reaction on the skin. As the technician activates the laser, the light beam passes through your skin to the hair follicles damaging them in order to inhibit further growth. The procedure is quite discomforting as you may feel a warm pinprick or a cold sensation because of the cooling device.
