Laser Hair Removal (for hirsutism)
Virtually your entire body is covered with hair. Because most of this hair is fine and pale, it usually isn’t viable to the naked eye.
But, when darker, coarser hair appears in places which may make you uncomfortable – like on the face, neck, abdomen, breast, legs or underarms in women or on the shoulders chest and back in men, it may be time to consider hair removal with the laser.
What is laser hair removal?
Hair removal temporary or long term has become an easier task with advent of lasers. Largely, laser hair removal gives excellent results in fair skinned people. Listed below are a few lasers used for hair removal.
The lasers are absorbed by hair follicle and spares other skin appendages. Cooling devices further prevent the heat damage to rest of the skin. Laser hair removal needs multiple sessions. Re-growth of hair after each session may take from 3 months to up to a year where latter is considered as a ‘very good result’. The re-growth is thinner, slower and scantier after each session
How does hair removal laser work?
The laser has a wavelength that specifically targets the pigment ‘melanin’ contained in the hair follicle & shaft. It penetrates the skin to the depth of 1.5mm which is where the hair bulb is located. Thus, it works on the principle of selective ‘photothermolysis’. The laser pulses for a fraction of a second, penetrates the hair bulb without destroying the surrounding skin & vaporizes the pigment in the hair follicle. Thus, the follicle is either destroyed or its re-growth is impeded. This is a non- invasive procedure & a large number of hairs are targeted in a single flash of light.
Is it painful?
During the treatment, patient may experience a mild stinging sensation described by most as snapping of a rubber-band. However, most patients tolerate this. Also, a chill tip cooling hand piece is incorporated in the laser which protects the surrounding skin & reduces pain too. A local anaesthetic gel may be applied to those who are very sensitive to pain.
