How does Laser Hair Removal work?
Technically speaking, the hair growth occurs in three cycles- Anagen (active cycle), Catagen (dormant cycle) and Telogen (fall-out cycle). When the laser beam is concentrated on the hair follicle, the pigment absorbs the light and gets vaporized at the right time destroying the stem cells forming the hair. This takes place without damaging the structure or pores of the skin. Laser Hair Removal creates maximum impact when the follicle is in the Anagen stage and each follicle must be treated individually to ensure maximum hair removal.
How are the sessions decided?
Since laser affects only the active phase hair, multiple sessions are required to get the desired results. The number varies for every individual as per their skin and hair type, the presence of hair follicles, hormonal status and other factors.
Will I be informed about the number of sessions beforehand?
Yes, you would be. On an average 6 to 8 sessions are required for visible permanent hair reduction. However this may differ and an estimation of number sessions required would be informed.
Is Laser hair removal better than Electrolysis?
Laser Hair Removal has many benefits when compared with the traditional method of Electrolysis. Firstly, Laser Hair Removal is quick and painless. The chances of permanent hair reduction are high. In Electrolysis, the process is time consuming, causes a reasonable amount of pain and discomfort and above all, there is a risk of picking up infections or getting scars.
Most importantly, Laser Hair Removal helps to remove the follicle permanently but in electrolysis the chances of the hair growing back is significant. A study conducted in 2000 at the ASVAK Laser Center in Turkey comparing laser and electrolysis for hair removal on 12 patients concluded that laser hair removal was 60 times faster, less painful and more reliable than electrolysis.
Does Laser Hair Removal hurt?
No. Laser Hair Removal is a conveniently painless procedure with much better output than other hair removal processes like waxing, threading or electrolysis. parts.
During the very first session, it feels like a nudge with a pencil, and so when laser hair reduction for armpit is done, it feels like nudge of 8-12 pencils or a rubber snapping against your skin.
Also, the laser equipment used at Radiant comes with cooling technology which cools down the exposed part right after it is zapped. The discomfort, if any, associated with laser hair reduction varies considerably between individuals. Skin type, laser equipment used, the thickness of the unwanted hair, the body part, and one’s ability to tolerate pain is the major factor that decides on the feel of laser hair removal by the individual. For people with very less tolerance to pain, the doctor can recommend on numbing cream application but preferably only for smaller body parts.
How many sessions do I need?
Normally, all areas of the body require six to eight sessions on an average. But the number of sessions can vary in different types of skin and hair depending on number of hair follicles at the target site, ethnic background, hormonal balance, metabolism and skin sensitivity.
Body hair grows, rests and falls off in cycles that span 1 to 3 months. Laser treats only the hair in active growth phase and at any point of time up to 30% of hair is in active phase. Considering your hair growth cycle, initially it is recommended to undergo a series of 6 to 8 sessions with a spacing of 1 to 3 months interval. These treatment sessions are usually followed up with a detailed evaluation by the in-house cosmetic dermatologists at any of our clinic to determine how much hair reduction is achieved with the ongoing sessions and advise necessary medicines to get optimal results.
What are the benefits of Laser Hair Removal in the long run?
Laser Hair Removal is a scientifically proven technique that helps to prevent hair growth in the most effective manner. If performed rightly (as done by our expert dermatologists here), the scope for re-growth of hair is extremely minimal. It saves a lot of time, energy and above all money compared to the results of the conventional processes. So, This is a sensible solution to resolve your unwanted hair problem.
Pregnant and lactating women and individuals in stage of puberty are advised against laser hair removal as the body undergoes major hormonal changes during these stages.
Since it involves laser, will there be any radiation?
No, radiations are not a part of laser hair removal. Ideally there are two forms of radiation – ionizing radiation, non ionizing radiation. What we do here is ‘non-ionizing’ radiation and that too with equipment which is FDA approved for your skin. The ionizing radiation is usually found in X-rays so it is entirely different.
I heard that laser hair removal is expensive, is it true?
No, this is a common myth; because laser hair removal is such a revolutionary technology with fabulous benefits, people assume that it must therefore be incredibly expensive. However, you would be surprised to know how cost-effective laser hair removal is when you compare it to the traditional methods of hair removal.
For example: A person spends up to Rs. 100 per session on underarms waxing and so approximately Rs.200 per month. Since this is a temporary hair removal procedure, one needs to continue this month on month to maintain smooth hair-free underarms. So, 15 years down the line, you would have spent Rs. 36,000 on just underarms waxing and that’s quite a big amount when compared to Rs. 15000 approx., one has to invest in one-time laser hair removal.
