7 FREQUENT QUESTIONS ABOUT LASER HAIR REMOVAL ANSWERED
Laser hair removal is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that removes unwanted hair with a help of laser light. The light emitted by the laser damages the hair follicles and removes unwanted hair. This also prevents or delays hair growth in the future.
Full-body laser hair removal is best done in a medical setting and by an experienced and licensed physician. Laser hair removal is not suggested to get done at home as it needs specific instruments and experience. To remove the unwanted hair, the physician will first clean the area where the unwanted hair needs to be removed, then a cooling gel is applied to the area and the unwanted hair is removed using a laser.
Laser hair removal is a completely safe non invasive procedure. However, it may cause some temporary side effects like redness in the area where the unwanted hair is removed, itching, and in some cases, there might be rashes. But all these are temporary side effects and get resolved in a few days.
When you are looking for laser hair removal treatment, it’s normal that you will have some questions. Here we answer the 5 frequently asked questions by our patients who come for laser hair removal treatment in Dubai.
1.Does laser remove hair permanently?
The short answer is no, the laser does not remove hair permanently. But what it does is, by affecting the hair follicles it removes the unwanted hair. As the hair follicles are affected, the area where the laser hair removal is done will take a very long time for new hair to grow. It might take months and in some cases years for new hair to grow. Even though laser hair removal is not a permanent option, it is much better than waxing and shaving.
2.How many sessions does it take to remove hair through laser?
On average, it takes somewhere between 2 to 6 sessions to remove hair completely through laser. The interval between each session is based on any temporary side effects and the location of hair removal. Once the hair is completely removed, it takes months or even years for the hair to regrow. And when it regrows, it will be very minimal.
3.What are the negatives or side effects of laser hair removal?
As laser hair removal is a noninvasive procedure similar to botox and non surgical nose jobs, it has very minimal negatives. Some of the temporary and rare side effects are redness in the area where the hair is removed, itching, rashes, blistering and change in skin colour. These are temporary side effects and get resolved within a few days without any medication.
4.What is the best age for laser hair removal?
The best age for laser hair removal is above eighteen. This is because, during the teens, there will be lots of hormonal changes happening in the body. And this may lead to unwanted hair growth, and all these hormonal changes settle down after the age of eighteen. So for best results, the best age for laser hair removal is above eighteen.
5.When will I see the result after laser hair removal?
You will likely see results immediately after the first sessions. However, the results might from patient to patient. On average, you will see around a 10% to 20% reduction in hair thickness after the first session. To remove the hair completely and get better results it will take anywhere from 2 to 6 sessions.
6.What precautions should one take before or after laser hair removal?
Before coming for laser hair removal, the patient should wax, bleach, or remove hair using any other hair removal method, 2 to 6 weeks prior to laser hair removal. However, if needed, shaving can be done in between sessions.
