How It Works
Dermatologists use Laser hair removal treatments to remove unwanted facial and body hair. It is a totally safe and effective process. By the help of advanced technology, most people now free from tiredness of shaving, plucking, waxing also razor bumps or acne-like breakouts.
Laser hair removal is a medical procedure. It generates a concentrated beam of light (laser) to remove unwanted hair.
A laser emits a light that is absorbed by the melanin (It is one kind of pigment) in the hair. The laser light energy is converted to heat to damages the tube-shaped sacs within the skin (hair follicles) which produce hairs. So laser hair removal effectively delays hair growth by damaging inhibits. Most patients see noticeably less hair than before.
In every treatment session, you’ll wear special goggles to protect your eyes from the laser beam. If necessary, our assistant might shave the site again and the dermatologists might apply a topical anesthetic to your skin to reduce any discomfort during treatment.
Laser hair removal doesn’t result in permanent hair removal. Multiple treatments are needed for maximum results and maintenance treatments might be needed as well.
Melanin and Skin Tone Factor
Light skin and dark hair people get extra benefits as its most effective for them. The person who contains more pigment (melanin) the more laser light they will absorb. It will increase the temperature easily. And higher temperature means better destruction of the hair follicle, so it gives maximum successful results.

It is a scale that takes into consideration your genetic disposition and how your skin reacts to sunlight exposure and gives results between 1 to 6. Type 5 skin will have far less noticeable results and type 6 skin is not suited to laser hair therapy.
