Laser Hair Removal

The laser emits a beam of light that attacks the melanin, pigment in skin that gives it a color. Laser hair removal works best when the hair on the skin is dark and the skin is light-colored due to the fact that the laser beam destroys the hair as black color of hair absorbs the laser energy and destroyed while white or light colored skin does not absorb it and remain unaffected.

The laser beam or a light pulse works to destroy the hair bulb itself. Lasers can selectively target dark, coarse hairs while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged. Each pulse of the laser takes a fraction of a second and can treat many hairs at the same time, small areas such as the upper lip can be treated in less than a minute and large areas such as the back or legs may take up to an hour. Ninety percent of patients have permanent hair loss after an average of five to seven sessions.


Hair reduction laser is a device which targets melanin pigment in the hair which gives the black colour to it. Therefore, it works best on black dark and thick hair which have more melanin content. These treatments work over a number of sittings at regular intervals. The approximate number of sittings that will be required will be discussed with you during consultation. We use only latest FDA approved lasers which is called DIODE.


In 4 to 6 sittings, you will see good visible results. But the best results are achieved in 8 to 12 sittings. Please keep in mind, this is laser hair reduction and not laser hair removal .


Make sure you avoid the sun for at least the next 2 days. Be liberal with your moisturisers and sunscreens.


In between your hair reduction laser sessions you could use any mode of hair removal, yes even waxing for the initial 15 days. The latter half of the month however, you are only allowed to shave. Please do not hesitate to call us if you see any unusual change in your skin post laser like pigmentation, burning or redness.
