How does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Laser hair removal makes use of laser technology that is based on the principle of selective photothermolysis. It is a minimally invasive procedure that uses specific light wavelengths to thermally damage the hair follicles. Here the term “selective” means the laser light won’t affect the skin's outermost layer- the epidermis.
When laser light hits the targeted hair follicles, the melanin (coloured pigment) in the hair absorbs the light. This light energy gets converted into thermal energy which effectively damages the hair follicles and inhibits future hair growth. The hair follicles only get damaged by heat if they are actively growing. At a particular instant, every hair follicle does not fall under the same phase of the hair growth cycle. That’s why, multiple laser hair removal sessions are needed after every 4-6 weeks to heat damage all the unwanted hair follicles and achieve optimal results.
Initially, after a laser hair removal session, the hair grows lighter and thinner in diameter, thereby not giving the impression of excessive hair growth. Hirsutism patients would need touch-up sessions once or twice a year after getting significant hair reduction by laser.
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 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 removal in Bangalore is the best treatment to eliminate the chances of ingrown hair as well as pigmentation which may occur after waxing.
