Why laser hair removal ?
To get rid of monthly waxing or threading sessions. Also to avoid damage caused to the skin by pulling of the wax strips and friction caused by threading or pigmentation caused by shaving. Laser is a painless procedure without causing any trauma and discomfort.
2. Scared of the word LASER ?
The name might sound intimidating but it is actually very simple. Energy from laser is taken by the pigment in the hair follicle causing destruction upto the root. The destroyed hair follicle cannot produce hair anymore.
3. Confused about which laser to use?
There are mainly three types of lasers used: Diode, Alexandrite and Nd YAG.
Diode : best laser and used in all skin and hair types.
Alexandrite : acts fastest and best for light to olive colored skin types.
Nd-YAG : long pulsed laser which works on dark or tanned skin and thick hair.
4. Why TRIPLE WAVELENGTH LASER?
Newer machines have the advantage of using all the above wavelengths in a single laser. It can target hair at all the depths in your skin and can be used for thick or thin hair and light to dark skin!
5. Are you the ideal candidate for laser hair removal?
If you have thick and dark hair with fair skin, yes. With the triple wavelength machine any skin and hair type can take the advantage of laser hair removal.
6. When will you see the best result?
Everybody’s skin is different. So, the amount of sessions it takes varies from person to person. Laser hair removal targets your hair only in its growth phase of the hair cycle. Hair becomes finer and thinner and the frequency of hair growth reduces with each session. Different body areas require different number of sessions. But on an average, it takes 6-8 regular sessions for best results.
7. Does laser cause cancer?
No. These are target based lasers which means only the melanin in hair gets affected by the energy, sparing other structures in the skin.
8. Are there any other side effects and when to avoid laser?
Apart from redness, there is no side effect with triple wavelength world class laser.
Avoid laser sessions if you are pregnant or suffering from any viral or fungal infection.
8. Can you wax or thread in between the sessions?
Intact hair roots are mandatory for the laser to work. Avoid waxing or threading as it removes your hair along with the roots.
TAKE A NOTE: IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO KNOW THE TECHNOLOGY AND TO GET IT DONE UNDER TRAINED DERMATOLOGISTS.
