People with dark, thick and coarse hair are the best candidates for laser hair removal.

In case you have dark hair, then it must be very annoying because when hair regrows, it is quite thick. The laser is drawn to pigment, or color, present in hair follicles.

It can take a while to work on thicker hair, some hair is very challenging, and many times come out because of internal body changes, like hormonal changes or other hair bulbs becoming active during the treatment process.

These add-ons to skin cell turnover, which makes the skin more exposed to skin and also irritation during the treatment process.

There are said to be the three most popular laser types.There are said to be the three most popular laser types.

  • Nd:YAG:

This long pulse laser is safely used on all skin types, including tanned skin. It is, however, less effective for light or fine hair.

  • Alexandrite:

This is the fastest among all laser type treatments; the whole body is covered under this.

  • Diode:

This is the best for light and dark skin.

It is not very complicated

Just because it says laser, doesn’t mean it is scary, the process is quite simple, energy from lasers is taken by the pigment in the hair follicle, which causes it to get destroyed in the root, once root gets destroyed, it cannot produce more hair.

It is not supposed to be painful

It gets comfortable with numbness. The feeling is very similar to a rubber band snapping the skin. Many people also feel like something pinching.

Please do shave and then get it done

Shaving is recommended because then the laser rays can very well get through the root of the hair. No waxing has to be done, it is basically not allowed, nor is tweezing or bleaching recommended, one month prior to the treatment, the reason being that the roots have to remain intact for the laser to destroy hair.

Apply good sunscreen lotion.

You are advised against going to the sun, post-treatment, along with usage of sunscreen is recommended, any hair growth between the sessions need to be shaved off.

Your menstrual cycle should not come in the way.

This is not a bikini wax that you will need to cancel your appointment, due to menses. You have to be very particular about treatments. Even if you are menstruating, you have to come for the session.

Involves some risks

It is no doubt that it is considered a safe treatment, but, there can be a risk of burning, along with discoloration, redness, scarring, and blistering. Your hair also might grow back.

Results are visible post 8 months or so.

The amount of sessions varies with each individual, laser hair removal works best when hair is in active growth rate. Different body parts have different growth rates.

Laser hair removal in India is the best that can be done anywhere.

And lastly how often should it be done?

On an average, treatments can be done after an interval of one month. If your hair grows very quickly, then the treatments can be done more often, initially after 2- 3 weeks and gradually decrease to 4- 6-week interval. Shaving can be done in between, as and when required.
