Laser Hair Removal: Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow

Laser technology commonly treats various skin concerns and issues. But laser technology is also optimal in reducing hair growth and providing near-to permanent hair removal results. Laser hair removal technology is an advancement in the aesthetic and beauty world and has provided remarkable results in this regard. Hair removal has always been a common practice because of beauty standards and aesthetic norms. Various methods such as sugaring, threading, plucking, shaving, waxing, etc., have been common to achieve this beauty goal. However, these all were temporary solutions and had other drawbacks, such as ingrown hair and skin irritation attached to them. 

But the need for a permanent hair reduction solution pushed us to discover laser hair removal treatments. The laser technology works by targeting the hair follicles responsible for hair growth. Traditional hair reduction procedures either pluck the hair or cut it over the skin’s surface. However, laser technology differs in its mode of action and destroys the follicles to inhibit regrowth. The laser technology emits heat energy that melanin, a pigment in our hair strands, absorbs and delivers to the follicle. Constant heat absorption destroys the follicles, and hence, no hair growth occurs again. 

Is It Better Than Traditional Hair Removal Methods?

All hair removal procedures successfully remove hair, but for a specific period, as they are temporary solutions. Laser hair removal is a permanent hair reduction solution that can help us live a hair-free and carefree life. So is laser hair removal better than traditional hair removal procedures? Following are some of the benefits of laser technology in terms of hair reduction and removal:

A Safer Option

One of the initial benefits of laser hair removal treatment is that it is extremely safer than traditional hair removal methods such as waxing and shaving. Since laser technology came into the market, there have been misconceptions and concerns regarding its safety range. But laser technology has come a long way and has developed its image as a safe alternative to other traditional hair removal methods. Burns, rashes, ingrown hair, skin irritation, enlarged pores, and redness are some of the side effects of waxing, shaving, and depilatory lotions. Laser hair removal reduces the chance of these side effects by safely reducing hair growth without any additional skin damage. 

Treats All Hair & Skin Types

Traditional hair removal methods do not remove hair from the cores, and hence, the regrowth is often hard and rough hair strands. But with laser hair removal, you can treat all skin and hair types without any side effects or severe damage. Traditional hair removal methods may not be optimal for all hair types, depending on the hair density, texture, length, etc. But laser hair removal treats all hair and skin types due to the availability of multiple laser options. 

Long-Lasting Results

A laser hair removal treatment is a permanent solution to your unwanted hair problem. No matter which hair removal method you have been using, your hairs grow back within a maximum of two weeks. Shaving only cuts off hair strands, and they grow back within a day or two. Similarly, plucking, threading, and waxing pluck out the hair at different levels, so the hair-free phase lasts only about two weeks. Unlike traditional methods, a laser can target the hair follicles and reduce the growth rate of hair, which then ensures that your unwanted hair does not grow back anytime soon. 

Laser hair removal technology has advanced over the years, and it has proven to be one of the safest, fastest, and long-lasting ways to get rid of unwanted hair. We have millions of hair follicles on our bodies, and targeting them all in one session is impossible. Thus, the procedure spans multiple treatments to ensure complete hair reduction. 

Important Aspects About Laser Hair Removal Technology 

There is so much confusion regarding laser hair removal procedures. We fear and are intrigued by the new technology that comes into the market. We want to know everything beforehand, from safety ranges to pain levels and from results to treatment procedures.
As far as the pain levels are concerned, laser hair removal is no more painful than waxing. If you have sensitive skin, there are numbing creams that can be used to make the experience more comfortable. You may ask why laser technology does not harm the skin if it is powerful enough to destroy the follicles. To answer this, laser technology emits heat energy that is harsh enough to destroy the hair follicles but is not strong enough to damage the skin surface, internal muscles, nerves, etc. 

Typically it will take six to eight treatments to achieve a full clear area, but certain people only need four treatments. The treatment requirements are variable and depend on the individual only.
