Laser treatments decoded for you
Does laser treatment remove hair permanently? What are its benefits?
It is a myth that laser can remove hair permanently. Instead, it reduces the hair growth on the skin permanently by removing the hair from its follicle. No waxing, threading or plucking is required and it makes your skin smooth
What are the probable demerits of laser? What are the chances of laser burns?
We use the Nd YAG laser which is most suitable for Indian skin. According to various studies conducted, it is considered to be the safest kind of laser, globally. The chances of laser burns are really very low.
Is it effective for those suffering from hormonal imbalance? What are the measures that they have to take?
It is effective for those with hormonal imbalance as well. However, they have to make sure that they take the required medication while going through the sittings of laser treatment. They might require a couple of more sittings as they are going through a disturbed cycle.
How long does it take to start showing results?
The results start to show in the first sitting as you notice that hair does not come back soon. For most people, by the fourth session, they begin to see results of reduced hair on their skin. We assess the clients after the third session to see the progress.
What are the measures to be taken post the treatment? What are the kinds of lasers? Which one is used for Indian skin?
You apply gel before the treatment and ice after the treatment. This is to keep any inflammation or irritation of the skin in check. It is not advisable to expose your skin to the sun for fear of inflammation of the skin or pigmentation. Apply sunscreen on your skin regularly. It is mandatory.
Which regions of the body do you disallow laser treatment?
We do not allow laser to inside the nose, ears, on the navel, on the areola nipple, joint eyebrows at the nasal ridge and any pigmented areas like moles or active acne. However, we do the treatment in the outer areas of the ear for men as some of them are known to have hair growth in that region.
Does the weather have any effect on the treatments?
No, none at all. The cycle of growth of the hair follicles does not change with the change in the weather so the weather does not make any difference if you are taking the treatment in summer or in the rainy season.
