Laser Hair Removal
A laser produces a beam of highly concentrated light. Different types of lasers produce different colors of light. The color of light produced by a particular laser is one of the keys to its effect on hair follicles. The light emitted by the laser is well absorbed by the pigment located in hair follicles. The laser pulses for a fraction of a second, just long enough to vaporise the pigment, disabling numerous follicles at a time to eliminate or significantly impede the hair’s re-growth. Importantly, highly specialized laser equipments have special contact-cooling system which is perfect for a woman’s sensitive skin. It protects and cools the upper layer of the skin before, during, and after each pulse while directing the laser energy to the hair root. The combination of this aggressive skin cooling and other key laser parameters allows safe and effective treatment of all skin colors.
What you can expect
The length of a laser session maybe a few minutes to an hour or more, depending on the size of the area being treated. Laser treatment itself may cause a slight tingling sensation. Most patients tolerate the procedure well. But because some areas of the body are more sensitive than others, topical anesthesia can be an option. The appearance of the treated area immediately after a laser session will vary from patient to patient depending on the extent of treatment and skin type. Immediate after-effects, if any, are minor. They may include redness and swelling, which disappear in a short period.
