About Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is a cosmetic procedure, which is highly preferred by women but can be performed on men too. Patients who are not happy with shaving, tweezing or waxing for the removal of unwanted hair refer to laser hair removal. Laser hair removal is one of the most common done cosmetic procedures all around the world. Laser hair removal can be performed on various parts of the body like face, arm, leg, bikini line and other areas. Most patients achieve permanent hair loss between 3 to 7 sessions.

Laser Hair Removal Procedure

Before the start of the procedure the patient’s hair around the area to be treated will be trimmed to a few millimeters, so it’s just above the skin. Then the doctor will adjust the laser device, depending on the patient’s skin color, thickness, and location of the hairs. The outer layers of the patient’s skin will be protected with a cold gel or special cooling device to help the laser light penetrate the skin. Then the doctor will give a pulse of light to the area to be treated and watch the area for several minutes to be sure that everything is good and to prevent any bad reactions. Each pulse can treat a great amount of hairs at the same time. The upper lip can be treated in less than a minute and larger areas of the body like the back or legs can take up to an hour.  Once the procedure is completed the patient will be given ice packs, cream or cold water to ease any discomfort.
