Laser hair removal is a medical procedure that utilizes a concentrated beam of laser directed at the hair follicle to effectively destroy it.
If you find yourself tired of the repetitive routines of shaving and waxing to remove unwanted hair, laser hair removal may be a worthwhile solution for you.
What are the benefits of Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal offers several benefits for those seeking a solution to unwanted hair. Here are some key advantages:
- Precision: The laser targets the hair follicles while minimizing damage to the surrounding skin, ensuring accurate and precise treatment.
- Speed: Each pulse of the laser can target multiple hairs simultaneously, and the procedure itself is quick, taking just a fraction of a second per pulse.
- Predictability: With an average of 7-10 sessions, patients can expect a significant reduction in hair growth, leading to long-lasting or even permanent results.

How often does a patient need to undergo laser hair removal?
The frequency of laser hair removal sessions depends on factors such as hair and skin type, as well as the specific area being treated. Typically, treatments are scheduled every 4-6 weeks. The number of sessions required to achieve the desired permanent hair reduction can vary, but around 10 sessions are often needed to see optimal results.
Does laser hair removal procedure cause pain?
The procedure generally causes minimal discomfort. Each pulse of the laser may create a slight tingling sensation, but it is generally well-tolerated. Compared to other hair removal methods like waxing, laser hair removal is considered less painful.
What are the risks and recovery associated with laser hair removal?
After the procedure, the treated area may resemble a sunburn for a day or two. Applying moisturizers and cool compresses can help alleviate any discomfort. Makeup can typically be applied the day after treatment, especially for facial areas.
What preparations should be made before laser hair removal?
To ensure the best outcome and minimize any potential complications, it is important to follow these preparations:
- Refrain from waxing, tweezing, or bleaching the targeted area for at least one month before treatment.
- Avoid tanning or exposing the targeted area to the sun for 2-4 weeks prior to the procedure.
- Do not have any dermal peels on the targeted area one week before treatment.
How should the treated area be cared for after the procedure?
- You may face some swelling and redness and may last for about 48 hours.
- Use a soothing gel twice a day for three days following the procedure.
- Clean the treated area with a gentle skin cleanser three days after the procedure.
- Use a face and body scrub twice daily for one week.
- Apply SPF to all treated areas to protect them from sun exposure.
- Avoid excessive physical activities that may cause sweating or friction on the treated area.
