Laser Hair removal

Laser hair removal is a procedure to permanently remove unwanted body hair by using the light energy from a laser. Unwanted hair is a common problem in women and men. Methods like shaving, waxing, and tweezing only give temporary results and are generally carried out on relatively small areas.

Laser hair removal treatment can be used to permanently treat and remove small and large areas of unwanted hair from the body. Best results occur in those with light skin and dark hair, and hair removal works better on coarse hair rather than fine hair.

Laser hair removal is performed in a physician's office or laser hair treatment facility. Depending upon the size of the area, duration of the procedure can range from one hour to several hours. Keep in mind that multiple sessions may be necessary.

A numbing lotion will first be applied to the targeted area. During the procedure, a laser is used to dispense a fine intense beam of heated light that removes the hair follicles, but preserves the skin in the surrounding area. Unlike electrolysis, which requires the removal of each hair follicle, the laser scans a wide area of the body in the removal process.

Patients return home immediately following the treatment. Normal activities can be resumed immediately; however, exercise, Jacuzzi use, and sun tanning are not recommended for at least 24 hours. No waxing or depilatory creams can be used after laser hair removal.

After the procedure, patients are often advised to gently cleanse the treated area with a mild soap. Your doctor may prescribe a specific lotion that should be used after treatment. An antibiotic ointment and other topical lotions may be required in certain situations.
