We developed body hair during the course of our evolution. Earlier, our body hair used to protect us from a variety of factors such as sunrays, rain etc. However, its importance has deteriorated over the course of time and in the modern age people are not very fond of body hair. Unwanted hair is not only considered as unattractive, but it is also considered irritating. Even though people want to get rid of excess hair, they are not very fond of temporary solutions such as shaving. This is why, people often look for ways to permanently remove body hair.
Laser hair removal is a process through which people can get rid of body hair on a permanent basis, with the help of laser. Performed by specialists, this technique will provide you with a flawless skin. These days, many skincare clinics around the world offer this unique treatment which utilizes laser. They charge a certain amount of fee for the treatment and the fee charged can vary from one patient to the other.
How does it work?
The hair pigment (melanin) absorbs the light energy produced by the laser. The energy produces a lot of heat that destroys the follicle, without causing any damage to the skin. It is a highly effective method which is recommended by dermatologists and skin experts across the globe.
How many sessions will a person need?
Depending on the profile of the patient, the doctor determines the number of sessions required to achieve a satisfactory result. The sessions are spread over a period of eighteen months and between each session there is a gap of four to twelve weeks. Before the session begins, the excess hair is shaved and skin is disinfected. Then the laser rays are allowed to pass over the area to be treated. Finally, a healing cream is applied to the skin.
There are different types of lasers. The specialist chooses the one which is most suitable to the patient.
What are the results?
As a result of this effective treatment, more than 80% body hair will disappear.
Are there any side effects?
Some of the patients may suffer from conditions such as swelling or redness, after the session is completed. Typically, the swelling or the redness disappear on their own, within a few hours
What are the limitations of this technique?
Even though this technique is very effective in most of the cases, it is not very effective in people with blond or red hair.
