Department of Laser Hair Removal
Laser Hair Removal has gained its popularity due to its effectiveness, convenience, minimal side effects, almost non-invasive, painless and produces long-term results compared to traditional hair removal techniques such as shaving, plucking and waxing.
The number of sessions required depends on the patient. The patient’s skin type, skin color, type of hair, hair color. Generally, patients would need a minimum of seven sessions depending on the coarseness of the hair and the color of the skin. Also, the main reason of the growth of hair if it is a medical condition such as hirsutism may require more sessions. Medical conditions or patients under medications that causes more hair to grow may require more sessions. Coarse dark hair on white skin is the easiest to treat.
The period in between sessions that is highly recommended is 3-8 weeks depending upon what is the treatment area. The safest would be six weeks, as hair growth cycle must be completed before the next hair removal session. During this time before the next session, the hair would be allowed to grow and the effect of the treatment is that hair would fall off by its own without any efforts from the patient.
Are there risks, side effects and is it painful? The worse side effects would be swelling, itchiness and redness around the treated area that would last for a maximum of 3 days. While being treated the feeling is similar to snapping rubber bands on the skin. Depending on the pain tolerance of the patient, anaesthesia is available at CMC such as cream that is applied half an hour before the session starts. The risks are minimal depends on the machine used and the skill level of the laser technician. Check out our highly trained technicians to assure safety and security.
