While there are numerous ways to get rid of unsightly body hair, the most of them are time-consuming and only work to temporarily eliminate the hair.
For one or more reasons including the fact that it saves time, money, and the hassle associated with other hair removal techniques, laser hair removal is one of the most popular aesthetic procedures. Unwanted hair can be removed by shaving, plucking, waxing, depilatory lotions, and threading, but the results are temporary and only last a few days or weeks.
The only method for permanently reducing hair is laser hair removal. Furthermore, it's now even simpler for people with all skin types to get rid of unwanted hair permanently thanks to technological advancements.
How does removing hair with a laser work?
Targeting hair follicles with a powerful laser beam that passes through the skin is how laser hair removal works. The light is absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicle, damaging the follicles. This procedure reduces the growth of hair and frequently stops it from returning in the treated areas.
The laser does not harm your skin; it just affects the hair follicles. We employ equipment with a cooling mechanism at the tip to protect your skin and lessen any discomfort from the treatment. Additionally, the gadget may treat multiple hair follicles at once, which can considerably shorten the duration of your therapy.
In order to increase patient comfort, our doctor performs laser hair removal as an outpatient surgery. The treatment area's skin is swept over with a handheld laser instrument, which separates each hair follicle from its root. Depending on the entire size of the treatment region, the operation could take anywhere from a few minutes to an hour or more to complete.

The color, thickness, and location of the hair that needs to be removed as well as the tone of your skin will all be taken into account when adjusting the laser equipment.

How to Prepare for Laser Hair Removal
You should refrain from waxing, electrolysis, and plucking for six weeks prior to your laser hair removal procedure. This is so that the laser can focus on the hair roots that waxing or plucking have temporarily removed.
Additionally, you should avoid the sun for six weeks both before and after treatment. Sun exposure reduces the effectiveness of laser hair removal and increases the likelihood of side effects.
Recovery and Risks
Your skin's treated region will feel and appear sunburned for a day or two after treatment. Moisturizers and cool compresses could be helpful. Unless your skin is blistering, you can wear makeup the next day if your face received treatment.
Your treated hair will fall out throughout the following month. For the next month, wear sunscreen to help avoid any short-term changes in the color of the treated skin.

Although the results are not permanent, they endure longer than those of plucking, tweezing, or waxing. Most patients require many therapies. This technique should only be carried out by a qualified healthcare professional. Burning, scarring, and permanent skin discoloration are possible side effects.
