Laser Hair removal is a gentle non-invasive treatment of removing unwanted hairs by using Long Pulse Nd: YAG laser specifically designed for this purpose.
Laser beam (a focused beam of 1064 nm wavelength) gets absorbed in the melanin of the hair follicle (the growth centre of hair) and increases the temperature up to 70°C and destroys the follicular cells permanently.
All parts of the body can be treated with hair removing laser. In women the most common areas for treatment are upper lip, chin, sideburns, underarms, arms, legs and bikini line. In men, the most common areas are shoulders and back, beard area and sometimes ears.
It has been shown to improve the low confidence level especially young females with excessive hairs due to hormonal problems such as polycystic ovarian disease (PCOD). They can move around with enhanced feeling of social and mental well being. As for men no hairs on chest & back makes them more masculine.
In general it takes 4-6 sittings to reduce hairs by 60-80%. But the overall results depend on hormonal imbalance, skin type, colour of hair & skin and individual hair growth pattern. The need of multiple sittings is due to the fact that laser hair removal is most effective for hair which is in the anagen phase. Anagen is the growth phase of hair. Since hair grows in cycles, not all of the hairs are in anagen at any given time. Additional sessions are necessary to catch all of the hairs when they are in anagen.
Coarse dark hair on light skin is easiest to treat. Finer hair and hair on darker skin is harder to treat and may require more treatments. It’s important to note that laser does not work on grey and very fine and vellus hair.
