Why laser hair removal

Why laser hair removal

Are you tired of shaving, plucking, or waxing? Do you get razor bumps or acne-like breakouts when you get rid of unwanted hair? If so, you may want to consider laser hair removal.

Dermatologists use lasers to remove unwanted facial and body hair safely and effectively. Thanks to advances in technology, most people can safely have laser hair removal.

Removing the unwanted hair can take 6 sessions or more. Afterwards, laser hair removal is permanent on most areas of the body. Due to hormones, it's not permanent on a face.

Laser hair removal can be repeated when the hair regrows (usually once a year).

What you can expect from LASER EPILATION

Laser hair removal is a aesthetic medical procedure that uses a concentrated beam of light (laser) or IPL (intensive light power) to remove unwanted hair.

During laser hair removal, a laser emits a light that is absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in the hair. The light energy is converted to heat, which damages the hair follicles within the skin that produce hairs. This damage inhibits or delays future hair growth.

Although laser hair removal effectively delays hair growth for long periods, it usually doesn't result in permanent hair removal. Multiple laser hair removal treatments are needed for initial hair removal, and maintenance treatments might be needed as well. Laser hair removal is most effective for people who have light skin and dark hair, but it can be successfully used on all skin types.


The principle of action of LASER EPILATION

Laser hair removal is used to reduce unwanted hair. Common treatment locations include legs, armpits, upper lip, chin and the bikini line. However, it's possible to treat unwanted hair in nearly any area. Skin with tattoos should not be treated.

Hair color and skin type influence the success of laser hair removal. The basic principle is that the pigment of the hair, but not the pigment of the skin, should absorb the light. The laser should damage only the hair follicle while avoiding damage to the skin. Therefore, a contrast between hair and skin color — dark hair and light skin — results in the best outcomes.

The risk of damage to skin is greater when there is little contrast between hair and skin color, but advances in laser technology have made laser hair removal an option for people who have darker skin. Laser hair removal is less effective for hair colors that don't absorb light well: gray, red, blond and white. However, laser treatment options for light-colored hair continue to be developed.

What happens during laser hair removal?

Before the treatment, the area to be treated will be cleaned. Some patients receive a numbing gel. Numbing the area to be treated helps when a small area will be treated and the skin is very sensitive. It takes about 30 minutes for a numbing gel to work.

To perform the procedure, the skin is held taut and the skin is treated with the laser. When the doctor activates the laser, the laser beam will pass through your skin to the hair follicles. The intense heat from the laser beam damages the hair follicles, which inhibits hair growth. You might feel discomfort, such as a warm pinprick, and you'll likely feel a sensation of cold from the cooling device or gel.

How long your treatment lasts depends on the size of the area being treated. Treating the upper lip takes minutes. If you are having a large area like the back or legs treated, your treatment may last more than an hour.

What are the possible side effects?

The most common side effects are minor and last 1 to 3 days. These side effects include:

•          Discomfort

•          Swelling

•          Redness

How you prepare?

•        Staying out of the sun. Follow your doctor's advice for avoiding sun exposure before and after treatment. Whenever you go out, apply a broad-spectrum, SPF50 sunscreen.

•          Lightening your skin. Avoid any sunless skin creams that darken your skin. Your doctor might also prescribe a skin bleaching cream if you have a recent tan or darker skin.

•          Avoiding other hair removal methods. Plucking, waxing and electrolysis can disturb the hair follicle and should be avoided at least four weeks before treatment.

•          Shaving treatment area. Trimming and shaving is recommended the day before laser treatment. It removes hair above the skin that can result in surface skin damage from burnt hairs, but it leaves the hair shaft intact below the surface.


Hairs do not fall out immediately, but you will shed them over a period of days to weeks. This may look like continued hair growth. The repeated treatments are usually necessary because hair growth and loss naturally occur in a cycle, and laser treatment works best with hair follicles in the new-growth stage. To remove the hair, most patients need 4 to 8 laser treatments. The color and thickness of your hair, area treated, type of laser used, and color of your skin all affect the results. You can expect a 10% to 25% reduction in hair after the first treatment.

How long will the results of laser hair removal last?

Results vary significantly and are difficult to predict. Most people experience hair removal that lasts several months, and it might last for years. But laser hair removal doesn't guarantee permanent hair removal. When hair regrows, it's usually finer and lighter in color.

You might need maintenance laser treatments for long-term hair reduction.

Does laser hair removal hurt?

Some discomfort may be felt during laser hair removal, but it is typically not perceived as painful. Individual sensitivity may vary, but modern high-quality lasers use cooling systems to minimize discomfort during the procedure. A slight tingling, pinching, or sensation of warmth may be experienced during the session, but most people find it quite tolerable.

However, it's important to understand that laser hair removal requires reaching a certain temperature to effectively destroy the hair and its roots. Therefore, it is unrealistic to expect not to feel anything during the procedure, as achieving the necessary level of heat is crucial for successful hair removal.

When choosing a salon for laser hair removal, it's important to trust an experienced professional who achieves good results. They will properly set up the equipment and use the appropriate technique to ensure maximum comfort and effectiveness. During the procedure, the specialist can adjust the parameters to find the optimal balance between comfort and efficacy.

If you don't feel any sensation during the procedure, it's possible that hair growth may not be halted or the desired results may not be achieved. Therefore, it's important to communicate any discomfort or concerns with the professional during the session. It's also your responsibility to follow their guidance to achieve the best possible outcomes.

Overall, when performed correctly by a skilled professional, laser hair removal offers an effective and relatively painless experience.
