Laser Hair Removal / Reduction

Laser Hair Removal in Lucknow

Are you tired of plucking, shaving or waxing? Do you get acne-like breakouts or razor bumps when you get rid of unwanted hair? If so, consider laser hair removal.

Dermatologists use lasers to remove unwanted facial and body hair safely and effectively. Thanks to technological advances, most people can safely have laser hair removal.

Removing unwanted hair can take six sessions or more. Afterwards, laser hair removal treatment is permanent on most body areas. Due to hormones, it's not permanent on a female's face.

You can repeat Laser hair removal when the hair regrows.


What is Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is a treatment to remove unwanted hair from your body. It’s non-invasive, which means it doesn’t need any cuts in your skin. People may get this treatment on any part of their body, while the most typical areas are:

  • Face
  • Underarms
  • Bikini area, or any areas that grow pubic hair
  • Back
  • Chest
  • Legs

Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

Lasers help remove unwanted hair from the face, leg, chin, back, arm, underarms, bikini line, and other areas. Benefits of laser hair removal include:

Precision. Lasers can selectively target dark, rough hairs while leaving the surrounding skin unharmed.

Speed. Each laser pulsation takes a fraction of a second and can treat multiple hairs simultaneously. The laser can treat an area around the size of a quarter every second. Small zones, such as the upper lip, can be treated in smaller than a minute, and big areas, such as the legs or back, may take up to an hour.

Predictability. Most patients have permanent hair loss after an average of three to seven sessions.

Side Effects of Laser Hair Removal

For a day or two afterwards, the treated area of your skin will feel and look sunburned. Cool compresses and moisturizers may help. If your face is treated, you could wear makeup the following day unless your skin is blistering.

Over the subsequent month, your treated hair will drop out. Wear sunscreen for the next month to help prevent temporary differences in the colour of the treated skin.

Blisters are rare but are more potential in people with darker complexions. Other possible side effects are redness, swelling and scarring. Permanent scarring or differences in skin colour are rare.

Dos and Don’ts for Laser Hair Removal

There are specific actions that you should take before and after the procedure is carried out. The same is valid for things you shouldn't do if you want to see results and minimize the chances of experiencing adverse side effects.

Laser Hair Removal Pre-Procedure Dos & Don'ts

Firstly, before you experience laser treatment, you must not expose the treated region to the sun or a sun mattress. Therefore, sunscreen of SPF 30, or preferably a complete sunblock of SPF 50, should be used whenever sun exposure is inescapable.

You must avoid waxing, plucking or bleaching the hair for six weeks before the procedure. Preserving the root or the pigment of the hair is critical for the success of the laser treatment.

You are shaving the area to be treated the day or night before your appointment is essential. Doing this will prevent thermal injury of the skin's surface as there won't be hair to absorb the laser's energy. It will allow the laser to target directly to the hair follicle. It will also let the skin heal if the surface is cut whilst shaving.

Laser Hair Removal Post-Procedure Dos & Don'ts

Immediately following the procedure, the area may show erythema (some swelling and redness) around the follicles, which looks similar to large goose bumps.

About 2 or 3 weeks after a laser hair removal treatment, 15 to 20% of the treated hairs will fall out. During the healing time, an area is treated delicately. Do not scratch or rub. If a crust forms, let it fall off on its own. Use a thin layer of aloe vera ointment on the treated area several times daily to keep it moist. Pat the spot dry. Do not shave the place if it is swollen or crusting.

Apply ice when swelling appears. Wrap the ice in a clean, smooth cloth. Discomfort or stinging may be reduced with Paracetamol. Don't take Aspirin or Ibuprofen, as these medicines may react to the laser light. If you need to apply cosmetics on the area, you must use and remove them delicately. Excess rubbing can open the procedure area and increase the chance of scarring. Avoid strenuous exercise and sports for two days following the therapy for laser hair removal. Walking is encouraged, though.

Avoid hot showers, steam baths or saunas, and don't swim in extremely chlorinated water for two or three days. Don't use bleaching creams, lotions or perfume products for 24 to 48 hours. Avoid exfoliating or peeling for one week. Try to avoid wearing tight garments for two or three days. And if there are signs of infection like tenderness, pus or fever, contact the clinic. Post-treatment skin care instructions must be observed to prevent any complications.

Does Laser Hair Removal Hurt? For most people, laser hair removal treatment does not hurt. However, it all relies on your threshold for pain. Most say it feels like splintering a rubber band against the skin. But you may encounter minor discomfort if you're overly sensitive to pain.

Is Laser Hair Removal Safe?: The answer is yes. The USFDA approved it as a safe way for hair removal in 1997. However, laser hair reduction is only safe when a licensed technician conducts the procedure.

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?: Laser hair removal applies using laser pulses. These pulses emit rays into the skin, eliminating the hair's root and follicle. When destroyed the root and follicle are, hair can no longer grow.
Targeted hair must be during an operational growth phase for this approach to work. However, individual hairs generally grow at different rates. Therefore, it takes several procedure sessions to capture every hair in the growth stage and produce optimal outcomes.

How Long Does Laser Hair Removal Last?: Some individuals see permanent results, while others may need a touch-up treatment every six to twelve months. Results vary depending on hair type and skin type. Proper preparation and aftercare can also impact how long the results last.
