Using a focused light beam, laser hair removal removes unwanted hair (laser).
The laser light emitted during laser hair removal is absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in the hair. The tube-shaped sacs that produce skin hair are harmed when light energy is transformed into heat. The development of new hair is slowed or prevented by this injury.
Laser hair removal often doesn’t eliminate hair, even though it effectively and temporarily slows hair growth. Several laser treatments are required for initial hair removal, and further sessions can be needed in the future.
All skin tones can benefit from laser hair removal, although those with fair skin and dark hair see tremendous success.
Laser hair removal benefits
Laser hair removal works well on the face, thighs, chins, backs, arms, underarms, bikini lines, and other areas.
The following advantages of laser hair removal:
Precision. Lasers can target dark, coarse hairs while protecting the surrounding skin.
Speed. Each pulse of the laser, which lasts only a fraction of a second, can cure several hairs at once. A quarter-sized region can be treated by the laser once every second. Smaller regions, like the upper lip, can be treated in under a minute, whereas more extensive areas, like the back or legs, may take up to an hour.
What to Do in Advance of Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal involves more than just “zapping” unwanted hair. It’s a medical procedure that could be hazardous and calls for training. You should carefully verify the credentials of the physician or technician administering the treatment before getting laser hair removal.
Six weeks before your laser hair removal procedure, you should refrain from waxing, electrolysis, and other hair removal methods. This is necessary for the laser to concentrate on the hair roots that waxing or hair removal is temporarily removed.
You should also limit your exposure to the sun for six weeks before and after treatment. When laser hair removal is exposed to the sun, it works less effectively and is more likely to have side effects.
Over a few days to a few weeks, your hair will fall out gradually. There is a chance that the hair will appear to be sprouting. Numerous treatments are typically required
because of the natural cycle of hair growth and loss. The most satisfactory results are obtained when laser hair treatment is applied to hair follicles that are just beginning to grow.
The results are highly flexible and improbable. Most people undergo hair removal for several months or even years. However, laser hair removal cannot ensure complete hair removal. Usually, when hair grows back, it is more delicate and lighter in color.
