Health and Wellness

Laser Hair Removal

Prior to starting the procedure, hair is trimmed down to a few millimeters above the skin’s surface before applying treatment in that area. Everyone’s bodies are different; as a result, there is an adjustment of equipment according to the individual’s skin color and the location of hair on their body.

The Procedure of Hair Removal:

Patients are given a pair of goggles to protect their eyes from the harmful beams of lasers during treatment. An anesthetic material is applied to the skin to ensure that it the skin does not feel irritated during the procedure. Your doctor or professional will use a hand-held laser device that will be pressed to your skin gently. A cooling gel may also be applied to protect the skin.

Skin Hair Removal

Tiny sacs on your skin are called follicles and this is where hair originally grows from. Intense laser beam destroys these follicles. A cold sensation may be felt on your skin. Some patients feel a little discomfort during their laser treatments, while others do not. It only takes a few minutes to treat the entire upper lip area, however it may take a long time to treat larger areas such as the back.

What to Expect After the Procedure?

The hair removal process is not painful. However, you might notice some redness and swelling for the first few hours after the treatment. When the treatment is over, applying ice to the treated area is recommended. Some women have a skin condition that triggers a skin reaction immediately after the treatment. To prevent this, the doctor or professional should apply a steroid to the area of treatment to prevent the skin from forming a reaction.

When the treatment is complete, it is recommended that women avoid direct sunlight and/or get minimum sun exposure. It is also recommended that you wear sunscreen prior to going out. The skin will heal on its own after the procedure. In some cases, blisters may form on the skin. Some women may also experience hair shedding after a few days or weeks of the treatment.
