About Permanent Laser Hair Reduction Treatment
Everyone dreams of silky, smooth and hair-free skin, right? People want to get rid of their unwanted hair and often opt for methods like waxing, plucking, and shaving. These methods are risky, painful and temporary.

With laser treatment, your dream of having smooth, hair-free skin can now become a reality!
But how does a Laser Hair Removal treatment work?
Laser hair removal involves a laser which emits light pulsations which work toward damaging the hair follicles and reducing the growth of the hair. Our laser device delivers quick, intensive, pulsating light radiations to the skin.
This causes the hair follicles to go into a state of dormancy for a long period of time in comparison to waxing or shaving. When the hairs do grow back, they'll be lighter, finer, and fewer in number.
During laser hair removal, a laser emits a frequency of light that is absorbed by melanin (pigment) present in the hair. The light energy is converted to heat, which degenerates the hair follicles (a small sac present in the epidermis and the corium of the skin, from which a hair develops). This damage inhibits or delays future hair growth.

How can you prepare for a Laser Treatment?
Now that you know and understand that Laser Treatment is a safe option, the natural question is how should you prepare for one? Always choose a doctor who is certified in dermatology or cosmetic surgery and has experience in the field. Be wary of salons or centres that allow non-medical personnel to conduct the procedure.
Prior to your Laser Hair Reduction Treatment, it is important to consult our dermatologist to determine if laser hair removal is the right treatment for you. The doctor will review your medical history and require information about your past and current medications along with the history of your skin conditions and previous hair removal procedures. It is also advisable to discuss risks, advantages and your expectations from the procedure with our doctor and take pictures for clear before-after assessments and long term reviews. At the consultation, it is also important to discuss a treatment plan and costs involved. Get the cost of Laser Hair Removal Treatment in Navi Mumbai.
There are certain specific instructions that the doctor might give you before you proceed for your treatment. Staying out of the sun and using a broad-spectrum sunscreen is the most common instruction. You might also be asked to avoid other hair-removal methods like waxing or plucking at least 4 weeks before the treatment since these can disturb the hair follicle.
What you can expect?
Laser Hair Removal treatment depends on a lot of factors like skin type, hair type, category of hair growth etc. Since these factors vary from individual to individual, the experts at our clinic believe in crafting customised plans that will cater to the concerns of each of our customers. Which is why our services are conducted by certified laser therapists under the guidance and supervision of an experienced dermatologist.
Laser Hair Removal treatment usually requires two to six sessions. The interval between sessions depends upon all the above factors along with the location. Certain areas, where hair grows faster such as the upper lips, the treatment might be repeated in four to six weeks. Whereas for other areas where hair growth is slower, such as the back, the procedure might be repeated every twelve to sixteen weeks.
As a safety measure during the treatment, you will need to wear safety eyewear to protect your eyes from the laser beam. The area concerned might be shaved, and the doctor might apply a topical anaesthetic to your skin to reduce any discomfort during the procedure.
During the procedure, the doctor will use a handheld laser instrument on your skin. Once the doctor activates the laser, the heat from the laser beam will work towards damaging your hair follicles and hence inhibits hair growth. You might feel a warm pin-prick like sensation followed by the cold sensation from the cooling gel. The duration of the treatment will depend upon the area selected, for smaller areas like the upper lip, the procedure might last for a few minutes and may go up to an hour for larger areas such as the back.
After the procedure, you might experience temporary redness and swelling for a few hours. To ease the discomfort, apply ice to the area. In case your skin reacts to the laser treatment, the doctor might apply a topical steroid cream to the area. It is highly advised to avoid sun exposure after the treatment and use a broad-spectrum sunblock every day.
Hairs don’t fall
out immediately after a treatment as it is a gradual process. Hairs usually
shed after a couple of weeks after a few sessions. The results of a laser hair
removal treatment are different for everyone. For most people, hair removal
lasts for several months and maybe even a few years. But when the hair grows
again, it is usually finer and lighter in colour.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is Laser a Permanent Hair Removal Method?
Laser Treatment is a hair reduction procedure rather than a hair removal procedure. It affects your hair follicles’ capacity to regrow new hair and drastically reduces it after a course of two - six sessions. This results in softer, smoother skin.
When is it safe to have another laser hair removal session?
For most people, it is usually safe to have another treatment after every two-six weeks. However, it varies from person to person. Your doctor will be able to understand your specific case and recommend the frequency of sessions accordingly.
How long will the results of hair removal last?
For most individuals, a laser removal treatment lasts from several months to even years. Even if the hair regrows, it is finer and less noticeable. In some cases, maintenance treatment sessions may be required to keep the area hair-free.
Will the procedure work on my skin type and hair colour?
Laser Hair Removal works on almost every skin type and hair colour. There are different Laser Devices to treat different skin colours. For in-depth information, you can consult your doctor and have them determine which treatment and device right for you.
Does the treatment hurt?
The procedure does hurt, but not a lot. It can be compared to a rubber-band sting for a very short duration. Cooling gels and ointments can help reduce the pain during the procedure.
Does Laser have any Long Term Side Effects?
In short, No. Laser treatments do not have any side effects in the longer run. If at all, there are some short term side effects like redness, lightening/darkening of the skin or scarring which subside down with care post the treatment.
Is it true that laser treatment can cause Cancer?
It’s a myth that laser hair removal treatments are linked with cancer. The laser light works superficially on the hair follicles to slow down the growth of hair. Researchers have shown that there is no risk of cancer linked to laser hair removal treatments.
Can laser treatments cause infertility?
Lasers only affect the surface of your skin and minimal radiation cannot penetrate any of your organs. So laser treatments causing infertility is a myth. In case you’re trying to get pregnant, it is advisable to discuss the same with your doctor.
