Laser hair removal is a non-invasive hair removal technique by means of exposure to pulses of laser light that destroy the hair follicles.
The laser light is absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in the hair follicle and
hair shaft -generating heat which damages the follicle to inhibit future hair
The laser light is best absorbed when the hair follicles are in the active growing phase (anagen phase). So plucking the hair before the treatment will reduce its efficacy as the target will be absent.
Also because, not all hair are in the anlagen phase at a particular period of time, so multiple sessions are required to produce signification reduction of hair.
Anyone with unwanted dark coarse hair is a good candidate for this
Females with increased facial hair growth and underlying hormonal imbalances can also undergo laser hair removal, in addition to the treatment of hormonal issues.
People with white or gray hair do not have sufficient melanin in the hair roots to serve as target for laser light, hence they are not suitable candidates for laser hair removal.
The following activities should be preferably avoided 4-6 weeks before laser hair reduction treatment.
Laser hair removal can be done for the entire body, as well as for individual areas of concern like underarms, legs, arms, chest, bikini area, lip, chin, back, abdomen, buttocks, thighs, chest and private areas.
It is a very comfortable procedure performed without anaesthesia.
The area to be treated is first marked with a white skin marking pencil. The
hair is then shaved off using a disposable razor. Pre-treatment cooling of the
skin is performed with sterile ice packs. A transparent gel is applied on the
skin. Laser parameters are set in the machine, hand-piece of the device is
held steadily and placed on the surface of the skin and laser shots fired. The
laser shots are felt like snap of a rubber band or minor needle pricks. The
discomfort is reduced markedly by cooling performed before, during and after
The entire treatment area is covered in a systematic manner to avoid skip areas. At the completion of the session, the area is cleaned and post-treatment cream is applied.
Laser hair removal is a comfortable procedure. The laser shots feel like a
snap of a rubber band or like minor needle pricks. The discomfort can be
reduced by proper cooling of the area pre and post procedure.
For more sensitive areas like the pubic area, a topical anaethetic cream may be applied for 30-40 minutes before the session.
Depending on the body part being treated, a laser hair removal session may take few minutes to few hours .
There is no down time associated with laser hair removal treatment. You can
return to normal activities immediately.
Icing may be done for a couple of days post treatment if you experience any burning or stinging sensation. A moisturising lotion is advisable to be applied to soothe the skin and keep it soft.
Because hair grows in cycles, and laser acts on the hair follicles only during their growing (anagen) phase, it typically takes six to eight laser hair removal treatments to provide significant hair reduction. Some areas respond much earlier, while other areas may need few additional sessions.
Depending on the area, we generally recommend six to eight weeks interval between different laser sessions.
The dead hair roots shed off spontaneously in 7 - 10 days. After that the skin feels smooth and hair free.

Yes. The hair that is removed once do not grow back. However, it requires multiple sessions to achieve the results.
