What is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser Hair Removal is a non-surgical minimally invasive procedure that removes unwanted hair through a laser that emits an intense beam of light.


As this beam is passed through your skin, the hair follicles in the area absorb this light.The intense heat of this light damages the hair follicles and retards their capacity to grow hair in future.This treatment is very effective for people who have dark hair and light skin.

How long does the treatment take?

Treatments last between 15 and 60 minutes depending on the area to be treated, the colour and density of hair. You will see the results from the first treatment

How many sessions will I need?

To see complete results you need to take 6 to 8 treatment sessions. These will be spaced about 4 to 6 weeks apart and you’ll soon notice a reduction in hair growth after each treatment.

What does the initial consultation involve?

The treatment is completely individualized; at your free consultation, the specialist laser hair practitioner will consider your skin and hair type and desired result and develop and personalized treatment plan for you. Laser hair removal may not be suitable for some people with hormonal disorders. This will be fully explained at your consultation.

Why consider laser hair removal?

Plucking, tweezing, shaving, waxing and sugaring can now be a thing of the past with laser hair removal which permanently removes hair from the required area quickly and safely. Laser hair removal can also be an option for people who suffer from excessive or abnormal hair growth, which may affect a person’s self-confidence.

How Laser Hair Removal Works?

Laser hair removal is more of a hair reduction treatment than a hair removal procedure. It slows down the hair growth effectively. The procedure works as follows:

  • You will be asked to wear protective eye shields to avoid any kind of injury to your retina or corneas.
  • The hair in the targeted area will be trimmed down to a few millimeters so as to reduce discomfort
  • A cool gel will be applied on the outer layer of your skin. A special cooling device may also be used. This makes it easier for the laser light to penetrate through your skin.
  • The laser beam will be adjusted according to your skin type, the color and thickness of your hair and the location.
  • A test pulse light will be directed to find out how you will react to the treatment. In order to do this a laser beam of low-energy will be passed through your skin. Observations will be made on how many of your hair follicles will absorb this light and if you come across any kind of adverse reactions.
  • Once the test is successful, the laser beam will be directed to the area that is to be treated.
  • In each treatment session, the hair follicles that are in the active phase of growth will be immediately disabled.
  • After the completion of the procedure, an ice pack or an anti-inflammatory lotion or cream may be applied to soothe your skin in the treated area. This will take care of any discomfort that you may face.

As laser hair removal works on the hair follicles that are in the active phase of growth, multiple sessions may be needed in order to achieve the desired results. However, the results will start showing right from the second session. The hair that grows back after this session will be very light in color and very fine too.

Side Effects of Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal gives you no side effects such as burns, nicks, cuts and in-grown hair that other methods such as shaving, waxing, tweezing, sugaring and plucking can give you. The only side effects you may come across, may include slight redness, mild bruising and a little bit of swelling. It is always better to go for a consultation session during which you will get a fair idea of the kind of results you can expect from laser hair removal.

Cost of Laser Hair Removal

Although the cost of one session of laser hair removal may be significantly more than a session of professional waxing, laser hair removal can work very cost-effective in the long run. This is because after a couple of sessions, you will need no more hair removal treatments as you will be free from unwanted hair. It is very important to follow the instructions of the laser technician or doctor carefully so as to make the maximum benefit out of laser hair removal.
