Laser hair reduction (LHR) is the latest technique for getting rid of unwanted hair. During this procedure, a laser beam passes through the skin to the black roots of your hair. The laser light heats up and destroys the root thereby destroying the hair.
Safe Technologies Used For Hair Reduction
Diode laser with 810 nm is the GOLD STANDARD for hair reduction and is U.S FDA (United States food and drug administration) approved.
One feels a slight discomfort during Laser hair reduction (LHR) procedure. There may be a warm sensation in some areas and pin- prick sensation in others, where the hairs are thick and coarse. Cooling the skin before and after the laser shots, further makes the sessions more comfortable.
6-8 sessions are recommended for up to 80% hair reduction.
Possible Side Effects
Properly done, following the recommended guidelines, no adverse effects are experienced.
