What is the Laser hair removal procedure?

During the surgery, it uses light which targets the pigment in individual hairs. The concentrated light travels from the shaft of the hair and then they reach the hair follicles. This destroys the hair follicles and due to this, the hair will not grow back.

Your hairs usually grow in hair cycle which involves three phases growing, resting and shedding of hairs. When the hairs are removed they need to be in a growing phase otherwise, they will not be removed easily. You have to wait if the hairs are in the resting phase. The treatment usually takes different sessions for two to three months.

Before the treatment, you should avoid sun exposure for at least six months. Cover yourself properly so that you don’t tan on your skin as it will become difficult to treat the area properly. Avoid plucking, waxing, or shaving your hairs for six months, before the treatment.

Is it permanent or temporary?

The removal of hairs with this treatment is permanent. However, people who choose this option can expect some hair growth in the targeted area. After some time, you can treat the area again so that it reduces the number of hairs that will grow again. Whereas in some cases, it is even possible to prevent the hair growth completely.

When the hair grows back, they are mostly light in color and due to this, they are less noticeable. This happens because the laser damages the hair follicles instead of destroying them.

The hair regrowth depends on numerous factors. It includes the type of hairs that grow again, from where you are getting the treatment, and the experience of the doctor.
