Laser Hair Removal
Grooming is a very important part of our cosmopolitan culture. Removal of excessive unwanted hair makes a monthly visit to the salon compulsory. However, a safe, painless and long term solution for unwanted hair is now available i.e. Laser Hair Removal.
What are the shortcomings of traditional methods of hair removal?
The traditional methods of hair removal like waxing, threading, epilation or shaving have many shortcomings. The hair tends to return quickly, and it may lead to the formation of bumps due to ingrown hair as well as pigmentation due to the damage to the overlying skin. The laser removes hair with gaps between sessions as long as 3 months apart. Once the laser sessions are completed, the hair growth is negligible. In fact, laser hair reduction is the best treatment to eliminate the chances of ingrown hair as well as pigmentation which may occur after waxing.
How does laser hair reduction work?
Laser hair removal selectively targets the melanin in the roots of the hair. When the roots absorb the laser energy, they get heated up and get burnt. This destroys the growth plate of the hair, causing permanent hair reduction. After even a single session, the hair grows back thinner and sparser.
Is laser hair removal safe?
Laser hair removal in Bangalore at Dr. Dixit Dermatology is a safe treatment as the rays used in the laser target only melanin. In order to increase the safety of lasers, newer technologies like Super Hair Removal have been invented. In Indian skin, the diode and Nd YAG lasers are safer.
Note: Lasers are very popular nowadays to get smooth hair-free skin. The laser targets the hair follicles at the anagen phase to make the skin hair free, Hence the treatment is known as laser hair reduction, as hair can come back after a certain period of time (due to hormonal imbalance), and maintenance sessions are recommended to achieve best outcomes.
