What is Laser Hair Reduction?

Laser hair reduction is a procedure that uses a device called a laser to target the hair follicle. The laser is used to heat and destroy the individual hair follicle. Some experts believe that the laser heats the follicle and the hair is then destroyed by a chemical reaction that causes the follicle to die.

Unwanted hair is a very common problem that many people encounter. It is one of the oldest problems that people have had to deal with. There are a variety of ways that people have tried to solve the problem, such as shaving and waxing. Laser hair reduction is a newer method available at Vitals Skin and Hair Clinic in Bangalore that has been proven to be effective and safe.

Benefits of Laser Hair Reduction

Laser Hair Reduction is the most effective and long-lasting treatment available at Vitals Skin and Hair Clinic in Bangalore for unwanted hair reduction. It is the only treatment that is approved for all skin types and all hair colors. The laser energy penetrates the skin to target and destroy the hair follicle in a matter of weeks.

Laser Hair Reduction is better than shaving, waxing, tweezing and threading. It is more effective than chemical treatments, even at the highest strength. It is safer and less painful than waxing or threading.

The technology is also great for treating body hair on sensitive areas like the face, chest and back. Our expert dermatologist at Vitals Skin and Hair Clinic will recommend 5-6 treatments to achieve optimum results. After the final session, your skin will be smooth with very fine hairs.

How much it will cost?

Laser hair reduction cost at Vitals Skin and Hair Clinic will vary depending upon the growth rate of your hair, your skin type, which area of the body you selected to do laser and per session cost as well as packages available.

What you can expect when you come for procedure

Prior to treatment, When you consult our expert dermatologist at vitals clinic they will explain the procedure, including what to expect during and after treatment. Our dermatologist will also assess your skin type and hair color. Then I will recommend a treatment plan that accounts for these factors. Then they will apply a thin layer of gel to the treatment area. Laser hair reduction uses a laser beam to target the hair follicle. The laser beam heats the hair follicle, destroying it. The hair roots are destroyed, while the surrounding cells are left intact and able to grow new hair. The laser removes the hair in a circular pattern around the hair follicle, leaving the root.

After the procedure

You might notice redness and swelling for the first few hours after laser hair reduction. To reduce any discomfort, apply ice to the treated area. After laser hair removal and between scheduled treatments, avoid sunlight and don’t use a tanning bed for six weeks. Use a broad-spectrum SPF30 sunscreen daily prescribed by our expert dermatologist at Vitals Skin and Hair Clinic.

What should I need to avoid after the procedure?

After laser hair reduction procedure and between scheduled treatments, avoid sunlight and don’t use a tanning bed for six weeks or as directed by your doctor. Use a broad-spectrum SPF30 sunscreen daily.

How much time will it take to reduce hair growth?

Hairs do not fall out immediately, but you will shed them over a period of days to weeks. This may look like continued hair growth. The repeated treatments are usually necessary because hair growth and loss naturally occur in a cycle, and laser treatment works best with hair follicles in the new-growth stage.

Results vary significantly and are difficult to predict. Most people experience hair reduction that lasts several months, and it might last for years. But laser hair reduction doesn’t guarantee permanent hair removal. When hair regrows, it’s usually finer and lighter in color. You might need maintenance laser treatments for long-term hair reduction.

Things to avoid after taking a treatment

● For 24 hours post-treatment, avoid shaving, waxing, or plucking hair, exfoliation, excessive sweating, swimming or saunas, very hot showers, and tight restrictive clothing.
● Avoid direct sunlight.
● Avoid exposing the area to direct sunlight for a minimum 2 – 4 weeks after your treatment and always use the institut Age Defence 50+ sunscreen to protect the skin and maintain results.

What do I need to do to prepare for my Laser Hair Reduction appointment?

● Avoid chemical peels or laser resurfacing treatments at least 4 weeks before your treatment.
● Exfoliate the treatment area at least 3 days before your treatment.
● Avoid excessive sun exposure on the area being treated two weeks prior.
● Do not wax, use depilatory creams or pluck hairs four weeks prior to laser treatment.

How often do I need to get Laser Hair Removal?

Depending on the hair, skin type, and body area being treated, you will require treatments at 4-6 weeks intervals. For the facial area, treatments can be done at 2-4 week intervals. Each part of the facial and body area has a different growing cycle, so hair reduction will vary depending on what stage your follicles are in at the time of the treatment. After each treatment hair is reduced hence it is important to complete the course of 6 treatments and at consistent intervals for best results. Our expert dermatologist at Vitals Skin and Hair Clinic will recommend a series of 6-8 treatments and maintenance treatments every 2-3 months for permanent hair reduction.

Does Laser Hair Reduction hurt?

One of the benefits of Laser Hair Reduction is that the treatment is virtually painless, especially compared to waxing. Each pulse lasts less than a second, producing a slight tingling feeling. In particularly sensitive areas, such as the upper lip, it may feel like a rubber band snaps on the skin. Our expert dermatologist at Vitals Skin and Hair Clinic will use an advanced cooling machine in conjunction with a laser device to reduce the heat sensation on the skin and minimize any discomfort.

Can I still get Laser Hair Reduction if I am pregnant / breastfeeding?

This treatment is not suitable for a pregnant or breastfeeding person, or someone trying to get pregnant.

Can I have Laser Hair Reduction over the top of tattoos?

No, unfortunately, we cannot treat tattoos with our laser. We can treat around the tattooed areas with a gap of 3cm.

What is the recovery time?

For a day or two afterward, the treated area of your skin will look and feel like it’s sunburned. Cool compresses and moisturizers may help. If your face was treated, you can wear makeup the next day unless your skin is blistering.

Over the next one or two weeks, your treated hair will fall out. Wear sunscreen for the following month to help prevent temporary changes in the colour of the treated skin.
