Hair generally grows all over the human body, some fine and barely noticeable, with other areas having thicker, more prominent hair. Laser hair removal is the deliberate removal of body hair using the technology of laser Removing hair through laser is the most effective non-surgical treatments. Laser hair removal treatment is a very effective treatment for removing unwanted hair for a long term.

How does Laser Hair Removal work?

Energy from the laser is picked up by the pigment in the hair follicle, causing destruction to the root. During laser hair removal, a 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 hair. 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 laser hair removal. Multiple laser hair removal treatments are needed for initial hair removal, and maintenance treatments might be needed as well. Laser hair epilation is most effective for people who have light skin and dark hair.

Why People Prefer Laser Hair Removal Over Other Solutions?

Unwanted hair has become a nightmare for women who are quite concerned about their clear skin and beauty. Even men don’t like to have hair under arms, on legs and chests. When it comes to removing hair, you normally opt for razor, wax, threading, and depilating creams or gels; while we all know very well that all such things provide a temporary solution. Laser Hair Removal is a permanent solution to unwanted hair and causes no pain.

Laser Hair Removal Sessions

Laser hair removal usually requires a series of two to six treatments. The interval between treatments will vary depending on the location. On areas where hair grows quickly, such as the upper lip, the treatment might be repeated in four to eight weeks. On areas of slow hair growth, such as the back, the treatment might be every 12 to 16 weeks.

Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

Minimal Side Effects

There are only a few minor side effects of laser hair removal, and those which do occur tend not to last more than a few days.

Cost Effective

Once you begin your journey with laser hair removal, you will no longer need to spend your money on regular expensive wax treatments, depilatory creams, razors or other methods of hair removal. It may be more cost up front, but over your life, you will save a huge amount by no longer having to spend on these procedures. You will also save yourself a great deal of time that would otherwise be spent shaving or waxing.

No Ingrown Hair

Unlike waxing, threading and epilating, you will not have to put up with painful and unsightly ingrown hair. Neither will you have to tolerate razor burns or irritation. Laser hair removal can even improve ingrown hair.

No Waiting For Hair Growth

You don’t need surface hair for a laser hair removal treatment. In fact, you are encouraged to shave soon before your session to prevent you scorching any of the surface hair. This means that while you are waiting for the laser hair removal to work, you can remain fuzz-free, unlike with waxing and other hair removal methods where you must have long enough surface hair before a session.


Laser hair removal specifically targets hair right down at the follicle. This is a particular benefit over intense pulsed light (IPL) hair removal as the use of the laser makes it more suited to treating people with dark skin tones. The precision also means you should get results sooner.


Treatment times are fast, although speed will depend on the size of the area being treated, and you are likely to see results within the first few weeks. You can also think of the time you will save by not having to shave or have regular waxing.


Most patients can achieve permanent hair loss within 3 and 7 sessions, so laser hair removal is very successful.

Instructions for Laser Hair Removal Treatment

Your doctor will offer specific instructions to prepare for laser hair removal. These might include:

  • Staying out of the sun. Follow your doctor’s advice for avoiding sun exposure, usually up to six weeks before getting treatment of removing hair through laser hair removal treatment, and use a broad-spectrum sunscreen daily.
  • Lightening your skin. Your doctor also might prescribe a skin bleaching cream if you have a recent tan or darker skin.
  • Avoiding other hair removal methods. Plucking, waxing and electrolysis can disturb the hair follicle and should be avoided at least four weeks before treatment.
  • Avoiding blood-thinning medications. Ask your doctor about what medications, such as aspirin or anti-inflammatory drugs, to avoid before the procedure.
  • Shaving treatment area. Trimming and shaving is recommended the day before laser treatment. It removes hair above the skin that can result in surface skin damage from burnt hair, but it leaves the hair shaft intact below the surface.

Expectation from laser hair removal treatment

Laser treatment for removal of hair usually requires a series of two to six treatments. The interval between treatments will vary depending on the location. On areas where hair grows quickly, such as the upper lip, the treatment might be repeated in four to eight weeks. For each laser hair removal treatment you’ll wear special goggles to protect your eyes from the laser beam. Laser Hair Removal has been FDA-approved for permanent hair reduction – meaning that individuals enjoy significant long-term hair reduction over time.

During Laser Hair Removal Treatment

During your laser hair removal session, a gel or numbing lotion is normally applied to the treatment area for added comfort. A hand-held laser device is then directed at the unwanted hair. Some individuals may experience a sensation of tingling or a slight sting during this process, but most of the people find these sensations easily tolerable for their laser hair removal treatment.


What Are the Side Effects Of Laser Hair Removal?
A huge benefit of laser hair removal is that the side effects are minimal. You may encounter some discomfort during the procedure while the hair are literally being zapped, which may prickle, but it should not hurt.

Is Laser Hair Removal Painful?
No, laser hair removal is not painful. You may encounter some discomfort throughout the procedure – this has been described by many as feeling as though a rubber band is being snapped against your skin, but you should not find it painful.

Will Hair Grow Back After Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is a form of long-term hair reduction. While it can result in the inhibition of hair growth, results won’t necessarily be permanent, and you may need an occasional maintenance session to keep on top of it. However, many people have found laser hair removal to be very successful, finding hair growth reduced by up to 80% and the hair that does grow is often thinner, slower and less noticeable.
