How does laser hair removal work
The primary principle behind laser hair removal is selective photothermolysis (SPTL). In this a specific wavelength of light at specified pulse duration is used to obtain optimal effect on a targeted tissue with minimal effect on surrounding tissue. The hair pigment (Melanin) gets stimulated by the light, which gets transformed into heat energy. It invades the small blood vessels that feed the hair follicles, thereby damaging the follicle enough to retard future growth. It takes approximately 4-6sessions on a body part before the results can be appreciated. Lasers can remove hair for anywhere from several months to years, as the results differ widely from person to person, skin tone , type of hair etc.
Advantages Of Laser Hair Removal Treatment
The biggest advantage of laser hair removal is getting rid of unwanted hair growth. It is the most effective of all treatments. It is less painful than waxing, plucking, threading, and electrolysis. The hairs that re-grow after the treatment are finer and lighter as compared to before. Laser hair removal treatment is effective only on actively growing hair. It permanently removes the hair follicle that is in an active growing phase.
Side effects of Laser hair removal
Short-term side effects of laser hair removal may include swelling and redness, which typically subside in a few days. One of the most common long term side effect associated with laser hair removal are burns, which may occur if the skin, rather than the hair follicle, absorbs the laser energy and Change in the skin tone. The laser can sometimes stimulate melanin production and thereby leading to darkening of skin also known as hyper pigmentation .But at times it may inhibit the melanin production, leading to a loss of pigment and lightening of skin known as Hypo pigmentation. Taking treatment from inexperienced or unqualified personnel can dramatically increase the risks of laser hair removal.
