Laser Hair Removal

Laser Hair Removal treatments abroad

Laser hair removal is an option for those who don't want to spend time shaving, waxing, or tweezing unwanted hair, or who want a more permanent hair removal solution. Laser hair removal is non-invasive, safe, and fast. Laser hair removal can also be used to treat ingrown hairs. The mechanism behind laser hair removal is called selective photothermolysis or SPTL.

This principle is all about matching the wavelength and pulse duration of the laser to target melanin in the hair follicle, without damaging the surrounding tissue. The treatment works best on patients with dark hair and light skin, but new technology is continuously increasing the efficacy of laser hair removal for dark skinned patients. Depending on the size of the laser spot (usually they are between 5 and 20 mm in diameter), and the size of the area being treated, laser hair removal can take anywhere from not much longer than a minute for the upper lip, to more than an hour fest.

Hair growth happens in several different phases, and laser hair removal only targets actively growing hair follicles. Because of this, several treatments are usually needed to reduce hair growth in the long term - usually around 7 treatments is a minimum. Depending on the specific equipment and procedure, between 3 and 8 weeks is usually needed between sessions. Before the laser treatment begins,hair in the target area is trimmed down to a couple of millimeters in length. Cooling gel is then applied to the area, which serves two purposes - it protects the outer layers of the skin, and lets the laser penetrate the skin more easily.

The technician will then begin treatment. Post procedure, ice packs, lotions, or creams may be administered to help with any discomfort. After treatment, short term side effects such as itchiness, redness, and swelling is normal on the treatment area. These usually disappear with a few days. In rare cases, skin can be burned or blistered. There is also a risk of infection if treated hairs are pulled out rather than left to fall out naturally.
