Permanent Laser Hair Removal

Permanent laser hair removal is one of the best cosmetic procedures for removing unwanted body and facial hair. Waxing, threading, plucking and using depilatory creams does not offer a permanent solution for getting rid of unwanted hair. The hair grows back after a couple of days or weeks and you have to undergo the process again and again.

Sometimes, these hair removing processes can also be painful and time consuming. So, the best resort is to undergo a permanent laser hair removal to remove unwanted hair on a permanent basis.

Permanent Laser Hair Removal Procedure

Laser beams are directed on the hair follicles without causing any damage to the surrounding cells and tissues. The melanin in the hair follicles changes the laser light into heat. This causes permanent damage to the hair follicles and prevents the hair from regrowing.

An important point to be noted is that laser hair removal can cause pigmentation in dark skin, unless the laser machine has been specially created for dark skin.

Risks Involved in Permanent Laser Hair Removal

  • There might be redness and swelling of skin for up to a period of two to three days.
  • Permanent laser hair removal can cause hyper pigmentation in dark skinned people.
  • Blistering and skin burns might also occur in dark skinned patients who require a longer exposure to the laser beams. However, this might be rectified by using a contact chill tip.
  • The eye area must be protected while undergoing laser hair removal.
