Know about Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is a medical procedure, used quite commonly these days to remove unwanted hairs in any parts of the body by use of laser (laser beam). In laser hair removal a laser beam is passed through skin to a single hair follicle and the intense heat that the laser beam produces cause damage to the hair follicle and prevents further growth of that particular hair in future. Laser hair removal has become very popular for removing unwanted hair in body, as it is the most effective way to get rid of unwanted body hairs, especially for fair skinned people with dark color hairs.

Laser hair removal can be very effective in reducing hairs by slowing down the growth of hairs treated with laser beams, but the removal of hairs may not be permanent. To keep the hairs from growing again, it may take several treatment sessions and even after several sessions of treatment with laser beams, the result may be only extension of hair-free period. From time to time maintenance with laser treatment sessions may be required for prolonged result. Laser hair removal is an accepted procedure by dermatologists and is commonly used these days.

What side effects may arise due to laser hair removal?

The common and non serious side effects of laser hair removal include itching, redness and swelling around the area treated with laser beams, which generally last only a day or two (less than 72 hours or 3 days). Potentially serious side effects of laser hair removal include hypo pigmentation or hyper-pigmentation, infection, sudden flare of acne or pimples and in extreme cases; it may cause burning of treated area.

What is the cost of laser hair removal?

The cost of laser hair removal depends on several factors such as size of the treated area (for obvious reason the larger the size of treated area the higher is the cost), number treatment sessions required (more treatment sessions will cost more), types of laser used for removal of hair, place where you get the treatment from (the prices may vary in different countries) and the pricing deals you may decide or bargain.

What result should you expect from laser hair removal?

The result of laser hair removal may vary from person to person. Multiple sessions can keep the hairs from growing again, but hairs can still re-grow after several sessions of laser beam treatment.

Most commonly 4-6 treatment sessions with 8-12 weeks apart are done for good result and maintenance treatment is required for once or twice a year.
