Laser Hair Reduction Treatment in Delhi

Laser Hair Reduction

Laser hair reduction is one of the most popularly performed painless methods that use advanced lasers to remove unwanted body hair. Laser energy at a specific wavelength is targeted on the skin, which is then absorbed by the dark pigment present in the hair follicles. The laser energy inhibits the growth of hair by damaging the active cells present in the hair follicles and results in a hair-free smooth skin.

Frequently Asked Questions

The treatment results are long-lasting. The patient may require maintenance sessions once a year after the area has been fully treated. The laser targets and destroys the hair follicles, but the hormonal changes and weight gain can result in new hair follicles growth.

There are basically two types of radiation. One is ionizing radiation, and the other one is non-ionizing radiation. The laser hair reduction techniques use non-ionization radiation and this treatment is also FDA approved. The ionization radiation is used in other medical imaging techniques like ultraviolet rays, X rays, etc. and these rays are completely different and are not used by the hair removal laser machines.

  • Stop threading, plucking, waxing, epilation for 4-6 weeks before the treatment.

  • Avoid sun exposure for about 1-2 weeks before the treatment and also during the laser sessions

  • Share medical history with the doctor and also about the health problems, medications, and allergies, pacemakers or keloidal tendency prior to the procedure

  • Avoid the application of products that can increase the risk of skin irritation such as chemical peels or skin exfoliation treatment

  • Avoid consuming blood-thinning medications for a few days before the treatment

Wearing protective eyewear is a must for both the patient and the laser technician. Laser can cause damage to the eyes. That's why doctors do not recommend using lasers around the eyes.

No. One must not pluck or wax the hair as the hair follicles will be eliminated and laser would not have anything to target in the next session. If required, one can shave the body hair though.

A good candidate for laser hair reduction

With advancements in technologies a broad range of lasers is available that make it possible to treat almost all kinds of hair whether thin or coarse, dark or light. The best results can be seen in people with light skin and dark colored hair.

If an individual has dark hair and dark skin tone, then the laser is adjusted according to the skin type so that it only targets the hair follicle pigment and does not cause any damage to the upper skin layer.

An individual with light blond or grey hair color is not an ideal candidate for laser treatment (as there is no pigment present in the hair to be targeted by the laser).

Mechanism of action of lasers

Lasers use selective chromophore techniques that target dark melanin pigment present in the hair follicle. The amplified light sent by the laser that penetrates in the target area is termed as ‘photo’ and causes the production of heat (thermo) that enters into the skin and is absorbed by the dark pigment present in the follicles. This treatment also works on the mechanism of selective photo-thermolysis. The laser instrument allows selective laser light to enter into the hair follicles through the skin. Selective laser light aims at damaging the targeted hair follicles and not the surrounding tissues or skin. Once the laser damages the hair follicle then its tendency to grow will be stopped. About 5 to 8 sessions of lasers are recommended to achieve optimum results.

Aftercare

  • Don’t go to the gym and also avoid performing sweat-producing activities after treatment for about 1-2 days.

  • The skin becomes sensitive after the laser treatment, so apply a moisturizer to ensure early healing.

  • Avoid applying makeup and cosmetics in the treated area for a few days.

  • Avoid direct sun exposure and sunbathing.

  • After laser treatment avoid plucking, waxing or dying the hair.

  • Use aloe vera gel or ice to soothe the treated skin.

  • Avoid using self-tanner lotions.

  • Don’t take hot showers for about 24 hours.

  • Drink plenty of water.

  • Clean the treated area with a mild cleanser.
