LASER HAIR REMOVAL(LHR) TREATMENT

LASER HAIR REMOVAL(LHR) TREATMENT

  • Laser Hair Removal (LHR) is, in fact, a misnomer.
  • The proper term is Laser Hair Reduction
  • This is because no laser can permanently remove all the hairs that are targeted.
  • The good news is that lasers can reduce the hair enough for it to be unnoticeable to the eye.

Laser light of a certain wavelength is specifically absorbed by the pigment Melanin. This pigment is present both in our hair as well as skin, eyes and other areas. Skin hair has a high concentration of Melanin, it absorbs more of the laser light, which is then converted into heat energy that travels down to the hair bulb below the skin.

The heat generated is just enough to destroy or weaken the hair bulb, which results in decreased/no hair production. Repeated sessions are required at an interval of 4-6 weeks. This is because all the hairs are in different parts of the hair cycle. This means not all the hairs are at its optimum condition to be targeted by the laser at a certain given time. A minimum of 6-8 sessions is required for long-lasting results.

Not all patients are ideal candidates for LHR. This is why a careful assessment is important prior to starting treatment.

The following factors affect the outcome of LHR:
  • Colour of the hair (darker is better)
  • Thickness of the hair (thicker is better)
  • Location of hair (certain areas are more resistant to treatment)
  • Hormonal imbalance (conditions like PCOS affect results)
  • Treatment regularity (patients must come for regular sessions)
  • Type of laser used (the doctor will determine which is the ideal laser for each patient)
  • Medications (which may cause hair growth. Eg. Minoxidil)
THE MOST COMMONLY USED LASER TECHNOLOGIES IN THE WORLD ARE:
  • Long-pulsed Nd:YAG
  • Alexandrite
  • Diode

In our clinic, we use Long-Pulsed Nd:YAG as this is the safest and most effective laser for the skin type in our region. The Candela GentleYAG Pro hair removal systems are the most popular devices in the world because of its safety profile, efficacy and patient comfort.
