Why you should choose laser treatment?
Most people are always pondering if laser treatment is a superior method of hair removal compared to the more traditional methods of razor, ready-made wax strips or waxing at the salon. Well, it is considered superior to the other methods, especially when it’s done by one of the best dermatologist in Dwarka, because, one, it is a more permanent method of hair removal, two, it’s definitely more cost effective, and three its time saving.
All these three factors are what’s pushing more and more women to opt for laser treatment in the recent times. And since it tends to stop your hair growth permanently or at least slow down the rate of hair growth considerable, you can go on for long periods of time without having to worry about shaving or waxing.
This will also save you the cost of multiple trips to the salon, for waxing and therefore is considered a worthwhile investment in the long run. With laser treatment, you will be saved the hassle and embarrassment of walking out with underarm stubble or a fluffy moustache on days when you just don’t feel like going through the trouble of removing your body hair.
What does laser treatment involve?
It’s a type of treatment where dermatologists use laser light to target a pigment known as melanin in our skin, which is buried deep within the hair follicle. When this pigment is heated up using laser light, it tends to damage the root of the hair follicle either completely or partially. This will then either eliminate your hair growth or dramatically reduce the rate of growth.
This treatment of damaging the root of the hair follicle cannot be achieved with a single session and will require multiple session of treatment in order to achieve the desired result. But you will be amazed at the end of it, how smooth and flawless your skin feels.
Is it equally effective in everyone?
Laser treatment can be carried out on everyone and for all skin types. But since it targets the pigment called melanin, it works well on those with light skin and dark hair. Because these people tend to have small amounts of melanin which is buried deep within the hair follicle. In those with darker skin, there is more melanin, which is present even in the top layers of the skin, so these top layers get heated during the laser treatment, it can sometimes burn the skin, and be less effective.
It must also be stated that laser treatment works best in some areas of the body, such as the legs, underarms and bikini, than in other areas such as the arms and face. This is due to the difference in the texture of the hair, as the latter contains thinner, softer hair, which is difficult to treat.
How often should laser treatment be done?
In order to complete your treatment with laser, you will mostprobably need between 5-10 sessions. Its, again dependent on the areas of your body which you want the treatment for. For your under arms and legs, it’s going to take fewer sessions than for your arms and face. Once the treatment has been completed, hair growth may be completely eliminated in some areas, but you may have certain areas where there is slow hair growth, and these will require occasional, additional sessions in order to clear them up completely.
Initially your sessions will be placed about once a month, or sometimes a little sooner like once in 2-3 weeks. And then it will slow down to about 4-6 week intervals, in order to keep up with the slow hair growth. You will be able to shave any hair that is growing back during these intervals.
Preparing for laser treatment:
In order to have optimal results, you should shave prior to having laser treatment, because the heat will then reach the base of the follicle effectively. But avoiding waxing is recommended. And in-between sessions you should try and avoid excessive sun exposure as this can darken your skin and increase the chances of your skin getting burnt.
What are the different types of lasers which are available?
The most common type used is the light sheer diode laser, which can be used across many skin types and is the preferred type amongst dermatologists. The other type is the long pulsed Nd:Yag laser, which is preferred for dark skin.
