Laser Treatment for Hair Removal


1. What is laser hair removal?

Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation or Laser hair removal is an advanced, fast, safe, and non-invasive cosmetic procedure that employs a focused, high-energy laser beam to methodically kill stem cells located in hair follicles. The laser targets and destroys unwanted hair without damaging the surrounding skin, leaving your skin smooth and hairless.

The laser technology is safe and effective for all skin tones, hair colours, and skin types.

2. How does laser hair removal work?

Laser hair removal works by using a laser that emits low-level heat, which destroys the hair follicles to remove unwanted body hair. The laser targets the pigment in your hair follicles, which causes them to stop growing and fall out naturally.

3. Who can opt for laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is an excellent option for anyone with unwanted hair. Some types of hair removal are better suited to certain body areas. Still, as long as your doctor has determined that you can safely undergo laser treatments and you’re not pregnant, there’s no limit on who can choose this method of removal.

However, pregnant and breastfeeding women and young people (going through puberty) should avoid it since they may be experiencing major hormonal changes during these phases.

Laser hair removal is both safe and effective. In fact, it’s one of the safest, most effective, and least invasive cosmetic procedures available today.

Safe because it doesn’t use heat or chemicals, but rather light to target dark pigment in the hair follicle, causing it to absorb energy and destroy – without harming skin!

Laser hair removal may cause redness and swelling, or the treated region may be painful for a few days. This is determined by the coarseness or thickness of your hair and the size of the region being treated. However, these side effects are transient and should disappear in a few days or weeks.
