What is Laser Hair Removal?

Hair follicles are responsible for the production of new hairs. Laser hair removal involves the use of a laser to remove unwanted hair from the face or body. The light that the laser gives off is absorbed by the melanin (pigment cells) in the hairs and when this energy is converted to heat, it targets the roots of the hairs and affects the hair follicles so that new hair growth is prevented. Laser hair removal is commonly used for treating the underarms, face, arms, legs, and bikini area for women or the chest and back for men. The hairs shed and the number of hairs on the treated areas is reduced while the hair follicles remain in a state of dormancy.

The three main benefits of this procedure are its precision, speed, and predictability. Laser treatments selectively remove hairs without harming the surrounding skin, can treat large areas in a short amount of time, and the results are long lasting.

How Can You Prepare for Laser Hair Removal?

The first step is to have a consultation with the experienced team at Avebelle Cosmetic Clinic. They will help you determine whether laser hair removal is suitable for you. Although it is safe for all skin tones, ideal candidates for this procedure are typically patients with dark, coarse hair and lighter skin tones, as there is a reduced risk of burns.

It may not be advisable for patients with light-colored or fine hair because there isn’t enough pigment for the laser to target, and there will be an increased risk of scarring on darker skin tones. For six weeks before your laser hair removal treatment, you should avoid sun exposure, tanning lotions, plucking, waxing, electrolysis, or other hair removal methods. Exposure to sunlight before or after laser hair removal will reduce the effectiveness of the treatment and make complications more likely.

Laser Hair Removal Procedure Details

The level of discomfort experienced varies from individual to individual, but laser hair removal is usually well-tolerated. The sensation is sometimes described as being like static electricity or rubber bands snapping. Appropriate eye protection will be provided. The hairs on the treatment area need to be shaved the night before your treatment. The amount of time a laser hair removal treatment takes depends on the size of the surface area being targeted. It may last for up to forty minutes on average.

Results and Recovery from Laser Hair Removal

The skin usually looks and feels similar to sunburn, but the minor swelling and redness resolve on their own within a few days. Hairs will continue to shed throughout the course of the following month and the results will gradually show. Ice packs, anti-inflammatory creams, and cold water can help to ease the discomfort after laser hair removal. It will be important to avoid sun exposure and heat because they can trigger post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation on laser-treated skin.

Apply broad-spectrum, SPF 50 sunscreen daily. Patients will also need to avoid bleaching the hair or using strong products such as retinoids and alpha-hydroxy acids. To significantly reduce hair, patients may need to book six to ten additional sessions, spaced four to six weeks apart.
