Laser Hair Removal: Procedure, Benefits, Recovery And Cost

Laser hair removal is one of the most commonly done cosmetic procedures that uses a concentrated beam of light (laser) to remove unwanted hair. If methods such as shaving, tweezing, or waxing to remove unwanted hair are not working for you, laser hair removal can be an option worth considering. In this procedure, a laser emits a light that is absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in the hair. The light energy is converted to heat, which damages the hair follicles that produce hairs. This damage destroys the hair and inhibits future hair growth.

Laser Hair Removal Benefits

Laser hair removal is the most effective method for removing unwanted hair from the face, leg, arm, underarm and other areas. There are many benefits for this procedure some of which are as follows:

  • Lasers can target dark, coarse hairs while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged.

  • Each pulse of the laser just takes a fraction of a second and can treat many hairs at the same time. Laser treats small areas such as the upper lip in less than a minute, and large areas, such as the back or legs, in an hour.

  • Most patients have permanent hair loss after an average of three to seven sessions of laser hair removal.

  • There are only a few minor side effects of laser hair removal which also tend not to last more than a few days.

  • Laser hair removal is a seamless and painless procedure as compared to other methods such as waxing.

Laser Hair Removal Recovery

After laser hair removal, you might notice redness and swell for the first few hours. Following are some useful tips for you to follow for a quick laser hair removal recovery: 

  • To reduce any sort of discomfort, apply ice to the treated area.

  • In case of a skin reaction immediately after laser hair removal, your doctor may apply a steroid cream to the affected area.

  • Avoid sun exposure after the treatment.

  • Wear sunscreen to help prevent temporary changes in the color of the treated skin.

Laser hair removal results vary significantly and are difficult to predict. Most people experience hair removal that lasts several months but in some cases, it might last even for years, Thus, you might need maintenance laser treatments for long-term hair reduction.
