Laser Hair Removal is a final solution of unwanted hairs

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is the process of hair removal by means of exposure to pulses of laser light that destroy the hair follicle

Most popular laser types are:
  • Diode: The diode laser is very effective for light and dark skin.
  • Alexandrite: This laser is the fastest of all laser types and works best for treating larger body areas among patients who have light-to-olive complexions.
  • YAG: This long pulse laser can be used safely on all skin types, including tanned skin. It is less effective for light or fine hair when compared to other types of lasers.

It works best on 4 areas of the body.  


While laser hair removal can work on any body part you wish to remove hair from, it is especially effective on the
  • Bikini, 
  • Lip, 
  • Chin, 
  • Underarm areas

Who is the best candidate for Laser hair removal?

People with thick, coarse, and dark hair are the best candidates for laser hair removal. The laser is attracted to pigment, or color, in the hair follicle. That said, it can take a little longer to fully work on thicker hair. Some hair is just very resistant, and sometimes new ones come out due to hormonal changes or other hair bulbs becoming active during the treatment period.

Do not take specific medications.

Skincare treatment is incompatible with certain medicines like as any medications that are a photosensitive need to be stopped at least one week prior to treatment also notes that most antibiotics can be photosensitive, so if you have an infection, it could be a good idea to push your treatment postponed for few weeks.

A result of laser hair removal:

You'll see real results after about 7 to 8 treatments. Also, its depend on the amount of sessions it takes varies per individual. Laser hair removal works when the hair is in its active growth rate. Different parts of the body have different growth rates and therefore could take longer or shorter depending on which spot you're treating.

Shave before treatment:

 A laser can penetrate into the root of the hair, not target or singe any hair on or outside the skin if you have properly shaved that area before treatment. You should not wax, tweeze, or bleach any hair one month before your session because the root needs to stay intact in order for the laser to effectively destroy the hair.

Use SPF to the affected area after your treatment.

After your session, avoidance to sun exposure is advisable and the use of a sunscreen is necessary for treated area.

Price for laser hair removal:

The price you pay per session of laser hair removal can vary from provider to provider, Dr. Manju Keshari from Kemps Skin Clinic says it can range depending on which body part you're removing hair from. Considering multiple sessions are often needed to fully stop hair growth, it's not exactly a cheap treatment. But if you like to have hairless skin, imagine using razors or heading to the salon for a wax for the rest of your life — when you think of how much all that costs, laser hair removal can be seen as more of a long-term investment. Plus, we also providers offer packages for clients.

What is skin Allergies and how to take care of it?

skin Allergies may be especially common on the face because the skin is more sensitive than elsewhere, and because of various face creams and other products people use on their faces. Even if you don’t have sensitive skin, you’ve probably still experienced a skin reaction. Maybe you were so excited to try a new product that you forgot to do a patch test and ended up breaking out in an itchy, red rash. Sensitive skin sufferers experience irritated skin regularly.
Mostly 2 types of Reaction you may feel on skin:

1. Irritation:-  Irritant is the most common skin reaction to a beauty product. It can cause burning, stinging, itching, and redness in the area where you apply the product. If your skin is dry or injured, it loses some of its natural protection against irritants. This means reactions can be harsher or happen more easily

2. Skin allergies (allergic contact dermatitis). Sensitivity or a true allergy to a specific ingredient in the product causes redness, swelling, itching, or blisters on the skin. Fragrances and preservatives are some of the biggest culprits.

First things to do after skin allergies:

Use aloe vera: As soon as you notice a reaction, reach for an anti-inflammatory cream that contains 0.5% hydrocortisone. Mix it with equal parts aloe vera gel and apply twice daily to the affected area. Hydrocortisone soothes inflammation while aloe vera cools and hydrates, providing immediate relief for hot, itchy skin.

Use ice cubes: Use the ice! Gently rub the rashy area with an ice cube to reduce inflammation and slightly numb the skin. The cold will help reduce redness, swelling, and discomfort.

Contact Skin experts (Dermatologist):  After doing above to steps call your Skin experts (Dermatologist) and make an appointment for the skin test and consultation. It will help you to know your skin and proper treatment of skin reaction.

Basic steps to avoid skin allergies :

1. Check the label:  Look for products with their expiry first, Do not buy product near to expiry date
2. Do a patch test first:  Before you start to use a new product, place a small amount on the inside of your elbow and wait 48 to 72 hours. If you notice no redness, swelling, itching, or burning on that spot, it’s OK for you to use.
3. Spritz on clothes:  Use the fragrance on your clothes, not your skin. You’ll be less likely to have a skin reaction to it. It also helps prevent the fragrance from having a bad reaction with other products you use.
5. Stop using if feel:  If your skin reacts badly to a beauty product, stop using it immediately. You can sometimes use an over-the-counter hydrocortisone cream to help ease inflammation. In some cases, you might need a prescription-strength cream.
Always care full about brands you use and check expiry of beauty products. Nowadays fake beauty products are also in the market which looks the same as original but cheaper than original products so please don’t buy cheap beauty product and try to buy herbal beauty products for use.

Do’s and don’ts before, during and after laser hair removal

Before laser hair removal

  • We usually recommended to avoid general sun exposure for at least seven-10 days before and after your appointment, A sunscreen of SPF 30, or preferably a total sun block of SPF 50, should be applied whenever exposure to the sun is unavoidable.
  • Avoid plucking, waxing or bleaching the hair for six weeks prior to treatment. Preserving the root and the pigment of the hair is imperative for the success of the laser treatment.
  • Avoid antibiotics because Antibiotics may increase photosensitivity. The skin becomes more prone to elements of heat damage including blisters, rashes, fever, fatigue, joint pain, etc. We recommend that you check with your personal physician prior to receiving laser treatments if you are currently taking a long-term antibiotic. 
  • Do shave the area to be treated the day or night before your appointment. Doing this will prevent thermal injury to the surface of the skin as there won’t be hair on the surface to absorb the laser’s energy. It will allow the laser to go directly to the hair follicle
  • Avoid makeup because Laser is attracted to pigment and melanin, and anything that is of dark color will be attracted to the laser and could make it less active. You can apply mineral makeup directly after treatment to cover any noticeable redness, but we would also advise you to remove this thoroughly in the evening to make sure the skin can recover. 

During laser hair removal

During the procedure in the laser, room needs protective eyewear to prevent the risk of damage to the retina. A jet of chilled air is used with the laser to minimize epidermal damage and increase patient comfort. The use of a local anesthetic is optional.  

After laser hair removal

Immediately following treatment the area may show erythema (redness and some swelling) around the follicles which looks similar to large goose bumps.
  • Apply a thin layer of aloe vera ointment to the treated area several times a day to keep it moist. Pat the area dry. Do not shave the area if is swollen or crusting. Around 2 or 3 weeks after a laser hair removal treatment 10 to 20% of the treated hairs will fall out. During the healing phase, the area must be treated delicately. Do not rub or scratch.  If a crust develops let it fall off on its own. 
  • If any swelling occurs apply ice and Wrap the ice in a clean soft cloth. Discomfort or stinging may be relieved with Paracetamol. Do not take Ibuprofen or Aspirin as these medicines may react to the laser light. 
  • Avoid very hot baths, showers, steam baths or saunas, and don’t swim in strong chlorinated water for two or three days. 
  • Don’t use perfume or bleaching creams for 24 to 48 hours. Avoid face pack or peels for one week.
