Procedure for Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal works when hair is in the growing stage. Hair generally grows in cycles. Therefore, patients need a series of four to six sessions of laser hair removal, spaced approximately a month apart for maximum results.

The patients need to shave the areas to be treated a few days before the laser hair removal treatment. Your aesthetician may apply an anesthetic cream on the day of the hair removal procedure, although it is not always necessary. On the basis of the type of laser, the practitioner may apply a spray, gel, or cool laser tip to make the treatment more comfortable.

On the basis of a quick, comprehensive evaluation, your laser hair removal technician will adjust and use the laser on different test spots. The technician will adjust the power, pulse frequency, and size of the laser to optimize the treatment as per the comfort of the patient.

With the help of a hand-held laser, the technician will focus the laser energy on the hair follicles. Most patients report little or no discomfort during the laser hair removal procedure which may vary in length on the basis of the size of the treated area.

Convenient and Effective Treatment

For example, a technician can treat an entire back through laser hair removal by achieving optimum results in just an hour.

The treatment is more efficient than tweezing or shaving on a regular basis. You may find at-home self-treatment cheaper but it takes more time and effort in removing hair as compared to laser hair removal. Moreover, shaving and tweezing do not provide permanent results as you get with laser hair removal.

With laser hair removal, you get satisfying results without any pain associated with other hair removal treatments such as waxing. People who get waxing done often complain of repeated burning sensations. On the contrary, a laser hair removal treatment involves minor discomfort.

Laser hair removal ensures excellent results with minimal risk of having any skin irritation as found with hair removal creams or depilatories. The primary active chemical found in depilatory creams can cause mild to severe irritation by melting away skin cells. Hair removal creams do provide good results, but they are only temporary.

Body Hair Removal with Laser

Body hair removal with the laser is a more involved procedure as compared to facial hair removal, since it involves a larger surface area. The patients may require multiple laser treatments to effectively remove body hair. The treatment duration may vary for an individual laser treatment. Generally, treating a larger body surface area involves more time for laser hair removal.
