In order to reduce unwanted hair, laser hair removal is used. Bikini lines, armpits, upper lips, chins, and legs are common treatment locations. Nonetheless, unwanted hair can be treated almost anywhere except the eyelid or surrounding area. It is also not recommended to treat tattooed skin.
The color of the hair and the type of skin influence the success of laser hair removal. Basically, the pigment of the hair should absorb the light but not the pigment of the skin. In order to avoid damaging the skin, the laser should only damage the hair follicles. The best results are achieved when hair and skin colors contrast, for example, dark hair and light skin.
When hair color and skin color are similar, the risk of skin damage is greater; however, advances in laser technology have made laser hair removal more accessible to people with darker skin tones. Gray, red, blond, and white hair colors don’t absorb light well, making laser hair removal less effective. Laser treatment options for light-colored hair are, however, always improving.
However, laser hair removal does not usually result in permanent hair removal, even if it delays hair growth for a long period of time. In the beginning, multiple laser hair removal treatments are needed, and maintenance treatments may also be required in order to maintain the desired results.
Two to six laser hair removal treatments are usually required to experience the most effective results. Depending on the location, there will be a different interval between treatments. It might be necessary to repeat the treatment in four to eight weeks on areas where hair grows quickly, such as the upper lip. Treatment may be required every 12 to 16 weeks for areas where hair grows slowly, such as the back.
During the laser hair removal procedure you will wear goggles to protect your eyes from damage. If the site needs to be shaved again, an assistant might do so. To reduce discomfort during treatment, your doctor may apply a topical anesthetic to your skin.
In this procedure, the doctor will press a hand-held laser instrument against your skin. To protect your skin and minimize the risk of side effects, you might be given a cooling device or a cool gel depending on the type of laser.
Laser beams pass through your skin to reach hair follicles when the doctor activates the laser. As a result of the intense heat from the laser beam, the hair follicles are damaged, which inhibits hair growth. There will probably be a sensation of cold from the cooling device or gel, as well as discomfort, such as a warm pinprick.
A small area, such as the upper lip, might only require a few minutes of treatment. The treatment of a large area, such as the back, may take more time.
With laser hair removal, the effects last for a long time. As the hair grows back, it can take weeks or months, and with each subsequent session, it takes longer and longer. Even after the hair grows back, it is much thinner and sparser than before. As time passes, you’ll find that you have practically no hair left. One of the biggest benefits of using laser technology is that you can get rid of unwanted hair all over your body to save time and improve your appearance and self-confidence. With laser hair removal you avoid the risk of painful and irritating ingrown hairs that plague other hair removal methods. The procedure involves no scarring or painful side effects to bother you in the days that follow, unlike some other hair removal options.
