laser hair removal facts
Laser hair removal is the most popular non-surgical cosmetic treatment and most of the people who had this treatment before are happy with the results. Laser hair removal is replacing all the other traditional hair removal methods and the reason is that its results are proven and lasting. It uses laser technology to completely destroy the hair follicles reducing growth of hair permanently. If you want to get smoother and clearer skin then make laser hair removal your choice. But before opting for any treatment, you should know about all the important facts associated with it. So, here are some important things associated with this procedure that you should know before you go for it.

Who is a good candidate?

All those who want to get unwanted hair on their body removed – whether they are men or women – can be good candidates for the procedure. However, if you have tanned or pigmented skin then you should discuss it with your dermatologist or laser specialist because it can cause more discoloration or pigmentation. Furthermore most of the dermatologists recommend not to go for the laser treatment if you are pregnant or lactating. Besides this, the treatment is suitable for any skin and hair type except totally white hair.

How it works?

Laser uses pulsed light that targets and destroys melanin – dark pigment – in the hair follicles reducing hair growth over time. This is why laser is considered more effective on dark hairs. Laser can also cause discoloration on the skin and therefore gel is applied on the skin before introducing laser that avoids any burns on it. Few sessions are required to get optimum results because hairs grow in multiple phases and the follicles should be destroyed at every phase.

When does hair fall out?

The hairs will fall out after 10 to 14 days. During two consecutive laser hair removal sessions, you should not pluck or wax hair. However, you can exfoliate and shave.
