Laser hair removal is a cosmetic procedure that uses a powerful laser or intense pulsed light (IPL) to remove unwanted hair.
This is a heavy laser hair removal method that is a great option for people with thicker hair. This treatment method has the longest wavelength of light.
This laser hair removal method uses deeper beams of light and is suitable for people with medium or coarse hair.

Almost everyone who has unsightly body hair they would like to have permanently reduced is a good candidate for laser hair removal. Although the results of the procedure will depend on the amount of hair in the area and the patient’s skin type, laser hair removal is a safe and effective way to remove unwanted hair.
Laser hair removal is actually laser hair reduction (LHR) treatment and it works by the destruction of the hair follicles thereby disabling hair production for a variable duration of time. The laser emits a beam of energy that is absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in the hair. The energy fired by the Laser is converted to heat, which damages the hair and inhibits or delays future hair growth and the capacity to re-grow. In 5-6 sessions, it drastically reduces hair growth, thus resulting in permanently smooth, soft skin.
After a laser hair removal treatment, the patient may experience slight redness and bumps at the treatment area which usually resolves within a few hours. The discomfort caused to the skin can be alleviated by applying an ice pack, cooling gel, or using a special cooling device along with a laser instrument. If the person witnesses an immediate skin reaction, it can be relieved by using a topical steroid cream on the affected skin area. For skin crusting, an antibiotic cream may be applied. It has been seen that darker pigmented skin absorbs maximum laser and is subjected to more discomfort which lasts for long.
Most people need somewhere from 4 to 6 sessions for optimal results, and it’s encouraged that you come back for maintenance treatments once a year or so.
No, laser hair removal generally does not require any real downtime. Immediately after having laser hair removal, your treated skin will be red and swollen. Despite this, most people return to their everyday activities.
With the higher success rates of this treatment, it is not surprising that the recovery is almost instantaneous. The hair from the treated area doesn’t shed out immediately but takes a day or two. Some patients experience no regrowth for months, and some even have reported not seeing any kinds of hair regrowth for over a year. The hair that grows back is generally a lot lighter and finer.
