WHAT IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL?
Laser hair removal is a non-invasive procedure by which unwanted hair are removed from any part of the body by utilizing a long pulsed laser.
The laser parameters are carefully defined by studying the anatomy of the hair follicle and precisely matching the laser light and pulse duration to the follicle size, depth and location to inhibit the re-growth of the hair.
Laser hair removal is performed by a specially-trained laser technician or a doctor, who directs the light of a long pulsed laser onto the skin. The laser works by destroying hair that are in their active growth phase at the time of treatment. Since other hair will enter their growth cycle at different times, several sessions are necessary to destroy all of the follicles in a treatment area.

IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL PERMANENT?

WHAT ARE THE PRECAUTIONS DURING THE TREATMENT?
Following precautions are expected from a patient during the course of the entire treatment:
- No waxing or removing hair with the root with any other way
- After treatment is completed, aloe vera should be applied to soothe the skin
- Exfoliating and/or scrubbing gently in the shower with a loofa after the treatment may help speed up the shedding process of hair
HOW MANY LASER TREATMENTS SESSIONS WILL I NEED AND HOW FREQUENT?
The number of treatments depends on the skin and hair colour, density and coarseness of the hair, as well as the specific area to be treated. On an average, 5-7 treatments, scheduled 4 to 6 weeks apart will approximately reduce hair growth by 70 -90%.
Additional session might be required to eliminate the hairs that came out of the dormant phase and are now active.
