What Does a Laser Hair Treatment Involve?

2 days prior to coming for your first laser hair treatment session, make sure to shave the area to be treated with a razor. Additionally, as the laser identifies your skin and hair color contrast, make sure to plan your sessions when your skin does not have a tan.

The session will proceed as follows:

1. The practitioner will apply a topical local anaesthetic, if you need it. You will be asked to wear special goggles to protect your eyes from the laser.

2. Then, the laser device will be applied on the area to be treated. This may feel a little painful as is commonly described as - ‘elastic bands snapping against your skin’.

The aim of the laser beam is to destroy the hair follicles and the bulge, where new hair grows from. Immediately after the treatment, it is normal for the area to feel a little warm or notice some redness or swelling.

What Should You Expect From a Laser Hair Removal Treatment?

It is important to remember that your final results will be visible only after all your sessions are over. In most cases around 80-90% of the hair is removed, though this percentage depends on the area that is being treated as well as your skin and hair type. Adhering to your practitioner or dermatologist’s instruction will ensure that you have the results you desire.
