Get rid of unwanted hair

There are a variety of options for permanent hair removal. One of the most common ones is laser hair removal. This is a fairly simple and gentle procedure. However, you may not know all of the facts about laser hair removal.

5 most important facts that will help you to make a decision on whether or not permanent hair removal is right for you.

  1. Laser hair removal is used for the quick, gentle removal of unwanted hairs. The laser works by sending a pulsating beam of light across the desired area. The light passes directly through the skin, and is absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicle and shaft. Once absorbed by laser light, the hair is destroyed from future growth.
  2. Laser hair removal requires multiple sessions in order to produce optimal results. This is because hair grows in cycles. Not all of the hairs are in the growth phase at any given time. Additional sessions are necessary to ensure that you catch all of these phases.

    Body Part Min No of Sessions Interval between sessions
    Face 6 sessions 2-3 months
    Upper lip  6 sessions 1,5-2,5 months
    Chin 5 sessions 2 months
    Arms 4 sessions 2-3 months
    Back  / Chest 4 sessions 2-4 months
    Underarm 6 sessions 2-3 months
    Bikini 4 sessions 2-2,5 months
    Legs 4 sessions 2-3 months
  3. Laser hair removal cost generally depends on the area where the treatment is required. The cost is directly proportional to the surface area of the skin to be treated. This means that treatment for your legs will be more costly than your face.
  4. Immediately after treatment with laser hair removal, mild reddening may occur at the place of treatment. This will go away within 24 hours. The laser treated hairs will shed within 1-2 weeks after laser hair removal treatment.
  5. Light skin makes laser hair removal much easier to perform. Lighter skin allows for fewer treatments and better, faster results. Darker skin is very much treatable too but results are slower and more sessions are required. If you do have darker skin, it is best to seek out very experienced aesthetician. Laser hair removal should be individualised for each client.

Dos and Don't of laser hair removal?

Dos

  • Do consult a qualified and experienced aesthetician. Regulations for laser hair removal have not kept up with the demand and consumers should be cautious of non-trained and poorly trained technicians practicing these procedures in spas/salons.
  • Do ask questions. What kind of lasers do they use? What kind of training or experience do they have? Can you speak with one of their clients? If the person performing the procedure can't answer these simple questions, you should walk away.
  • Do undergo a skin consultation and test patch test. If there are any apprehensions as to how the laser may interact with the skin, ask for a skin test to ensure there will be no adverse side effects.
  • Do ensure the aesthetician has experience with different skin types. People of a darker complexion may experience unusual lightening of the skin if an incorrect laser or IPL is used at an inappropriate setting.

Don'ts

  • Don't tan before or after a procedure. Tanning prior to a treatment can interfere with the absorption of laser light and may cause unusual lightening of the skin. Artificial tanning lotions should also be avoided because the perceived darker pigmentation may also interfere with the absorption of the laser on the skin causing unusual burns and bumps.
  • Don't seek laser treatments for blonde or white hairs. Since the laser responds to darker pigmented hair follicles, laser treatments are not as effective in treating lighter hairs. Patients with this type of hair should consider other methods of hair removal.
  • Don't undergo laser procedures if you take light sensitive medication. Some medications may interfere with laser procedures, making the skin more susceptible to burning and scarring. To ensure that your medication won't interfere with the procedure, consult a physician before undergoing any laser treatment.

Hair in unwanted places can be a big headache for many people. The growth of body hair generally differs from person to person for many reasons, but what seems to bring it all together, is a fear of hair growth and that everyone wants more effective way get rid of this hair, with a minimum of pain and money
