What Is Laser Hair Removal and How Does It Work?

Laser hair removal is an aesthetic procedure designed to effectively and safely reduce or remove unwelcomed actively growing hair from various body parts. It helps anyone with excessive hair abstain from hair growth.

In a laser hair removal treatment, a medical-grade laser light is focused on the targeted undesirable hair follicles. This laser beam generates thermal energy that gets absorbed by melanin under the skin surface in the targeted hair follicles. The heat destroys the hair follicles and inhibits future hair growth. The lasers only work at the hair follicles that are in the active growth phase of the hair growth cycle. Therefore, multiple laser sessions are needed every 6-8 weeks to ensure all the targeted hair follicles get thermally destroyed.

When to Consider Laser Hair Removal?

If confused about when to uptake laser hair removal treatment, it’s recommended to see instances that indicate the need to undergo laser hair removal. This includes:

  • Tired of traditional hair removal methods- Waxing and shaving are tedious, discomforting hair removal options. So, if there is a need for more sustainable and prolonged treatment, laser hair removal is the ideal choice.
  • Having proper contrast between hair and skin- The success of laser hair removal treatment depends upon how well is laser light absorbed by the targeted hair follicles. Those having dark hair and light complexion are the best candidates for the treatment.
  • Being healthy without any active medical problems or skin issues- An individual seeking laser hair removal must have good general health and no problems that could interfere with the treatment's effectiveness and outcome.
  • Holding realistic expectations from the treatment outcome- Laser hair removal does not work to cease future hair growth rather it ensures delayed hair growth. Therefore, individuals must not get disheartened to see finer and sparse hair growth after laser hair removal. 

Preparation for Laser Hair Removal

Before the laser hair removal session, the candidates must:

  • Avoid direct sun exposure and sun-protect the skin from damage.
  • Avoid waxing or plucking, as it can uproot the hair follicles. Shaving or trimming hair is necessary beforehand.
  • Do not consume blood thinners for a few days leading to the treatment.
  • On the day of the treatment, the area to be treated must be thoroughly cleaned and numbing cream may be applied to avoid any discomfort.

Laser Hair Removal Session

During laser hair removal in Bangalore, a handheld laser device is pressed onto the skin of the targeted area. The laser fitted with a cooling device or a cool gel may be used to protect the skin from laser heat damage and reduce the risk of side effects or complications. When the laser beam hits the hair follicles, the candidate will experience slight discomfort like a warm pinprick sensation of a hot rubber band snapping against the skin. This is relieved by a cooling sensation coming from a cool gel or cooling device.

Results, Recovery, And Aftercare

The recovery is almost instantaneous. The hair from the treated area does not shed just after the treatment but takes 1-2 days. Some candidates report no hair regrowth for a few months and some have had no hair regrowth for over a year. The hair that grows back is often finer or lighter. During recovery, the candidates are advised to avoid strenuous activities, hot showers, saunas, and hot baths for 24 hours. Keep their skin sun protected for up to 6 weeks or for as long as recommended.

However, just any treatment comes with some side effects, the common side effects of laser hair removal include minor skin irritation, slight redness, and mild swelling that lasts for only a few days.
