What is Laser Hair Removal?

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. But the good news is that these lasers can reduce your hair making it unnoticeable to the eye.

How does laser hair removal technology work?

Laser hair removal is a medical procedure that uses a concentrated beam of light (laser) to remove unwanted hair.

During laser hair removal, the laser emits a light that is absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in the hair. The light energy is converted to heat, which damages the tube-shaped sacs within the skin (hair follicles) that produce hairs. This damage inhibits or delays future hair growth. Although laser hair removal effectively delays hair growth for long periods, it usually doesn’t result in permanent hair removal. DCD helps ensure that Gentle Hair Removal treatments are as comfortable as they are effective to achieve the desired hair reduction.

Unlike traditional Laser Removal, which can feel like hot bursts on the skin, with Cryotherapy technology, the head of the machine remains cold – painlessly cooling the skin for a split second during the blast of light. Now you can – for the first time – enjoy a virtually painless hair removal treatment.

How should I prepare for a treatment?

Instructions to prepare yourself for laser hair removal. These include

  • Staying out of the sun.
  • Avoid any sunless skin creams that darken your skin.
  • Avoiding other traditional hair removal methods like Plucking, waxing etc.
  • Trimming and shaving is recommended the day before laser treatment.

How Many Laser Hair Removal Sessions Do You Need?

Everyone has a different amount of hair, and everyone’s hair grows at a different rate. To get rid of all your unwanted hair in a given area, we need to schedule multiple sessions in accordance with your hair growth cycles. The laser’s heat destroys hair follicles that are in their active growth “Anagen” stage, stopping their hair growth ability permanently.

How long is the treatment session?

Treatment duration differs according to the treated area, and can be as short as 15 minutes for the small areas, and less than 90 minutes for the full body.

How safe is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is safe and effective for most people. Patient might have a minor feeling of discomfort that is largely neutralized by the DCD technology.

Are there any side effects?

The most common side effects of laser hair removal include:

Skin irritation, temporary discomfort, redness and swelling. Any signs and symptoms typically disappear within several hours. The DCD techniques sideline most of these possible side effects.

Is Laser hair removal really permanent?

In short, no. Laser hair removal works by heating the hair follicles to stop new hairs from growing. This puts the hair follicles in a state of dormancy for a long period of time — much longer than with shaving and waxing. When the hairs do grow back, they’ll be lighter, finer, and fewer in number.

Although the procedure is often touted as a form of “permanent” hair removal, laser treatment only reduces the number of unwanted hairs in a given area. It doesn’t get rid of unwanted hairs completely.

Laser hair removal is a highly recommended solution for permanently getting rid of unwanted hair. The treatment can eliminate up to 90% of hair in the target areas, with multiple sessions leading to long-term hair loss.

Are there any factors that can affect the result of the treatment?

  • 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)
