Reduction of Unwanted Hair Growth
Laser hair reduction is an effective way of reducing the unwanted hair on the body with the help of pulses given out of the laser light that destroys the melanin in the hair follicle.
A hand-held device applies flashes of light to the skin in the treatment area. A cooling gel is applied to the target area. Patients may feel a tingling or stinging sensation, but discomfort is generally minimal.
Treatments can last anywhere from 10 minutes to an hour, depending on the size of the treatment area. On average, 7-8 or more sessions are needed. Since facial hair is hormonal, it may take longer. There is no fixed interval between sessions as it differs depending upon the growth of each person.
Precautions to be taken before and after the laser:
Don’t wax or thread and come for your session as no hair root will be present to kill. Your session may go to waste. Though shaving is fine. Waxing or threading in between sessions is fine but when you come, the growth must be maximum.
