MORE ABOUT LASER HAIR REMOVAL

Laser hair removal is a treatment that manages excessive hair growth by reducing it. The process includes the use of laser energy to target a specific area and destroy the hair follicles in that selected area. By using this treatment, unwanted hair can be kept at bay without the treatment affecting the skin at all!

FREQUENTY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT IS THE PROCESS OF LASER HAIR REMOVAL TREATMENT?

The process of laser hair removal involves targeting laser energy or the light source to selective hair follicles. The heat from the laser targets the melanin and converts it to heat energy that destroys hair follicle stem cells, preventing further growth.

Laser treatment is easier to achieve in the active growth phase of the hair. Since hair growth takes place in cycles, the sessions are set up each time when the patient’s hair is in the active growth phase. Depending on the growth and the area to be treated, the intervals between sessions will increase or decrease.

The treatment also helps with ingrown hair removal that a lot of people struggle with.

HOW MANY SESSIONS OF TREATMENT ARE REQUIRED?

In most cases, one may require about 4-8 sessions. In these sessions, the practitioner will target hair follicles in their active growth phase. Since the hair growth duration in most areas varies, we time the sessions weeks apart in some cases. On the other hand, areas such as the face where the hair growth cycle is faster, the time between two sessions will shorten.

IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL PERMANENT?

Laser hair removal comes with its own pros and cons. While every existing hair is permanently removed, that is not the case for new hair growth. However, with the laser hair removal treatment, hair removal becomes more manageable wherein one needn’t go about waxing, shaving, or plucking hair often.

WHAT ARE THE SIDE-EFFECTS OF THE TREATMENT?

Once you undergo laser hair removal, there may be mild redness and swelling which can simply be treated with some cold gel that your practitioner suggests.

It is also important that you avoid sun exposure after your laser hair removal treatment in Melbourne. In case you do head out, generously apply sunscreen.

In case you notice blisters after your treatment, make sure you do not pick at them or scratch the area. While this is in a very uncommon after-effect, the scarring resulting from scratching the blisters if they become infected or irritated may be permanent.

Similarly, if you often get cold sores, make sure you let your practitioner know before the treatment so that you can be given the required medication for it if the treatment reactivates your cold sores.

WHAT IS THE COST OF LASER HAIR REMOVAL TREATMENT IN MELBOURNE?

The cost of laser hair removal depends entirely on the area to be treated and your hair growth. Where some areas have a larger portion to cover, others require less work. At the time of your consultation, your doctor will let you know how many sessions you would require and what the approximate cost would be for the entire treatment.

HOW PERMANENT IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL?

A single laser hair removal session will not give you permanent results. The treatment involves multiple sessions every few weeks to keep the hair from growing back. Once all of the sessions are over, you will be able to see the exceptional results. It is also important that you visit the clinic for follow-up sessions once a year.

SHOULD YOU SHAVE FOR LASER HAIR REMOVAL?

Shaving before a laser hair removal treatment is necessary the night before or the morning of your treatment. This is to ensure that the laser’s energy is focused on the roots of the hair beneath the skin’s surface.

IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL GOOD OR BAD?

Laser hair removal is a more common practice that many believe. It is both safe and effective, with no long-term side-effects or risks to one’s health. They may be minimal side-effects that subside over a couple of days.

WHAT ARE THE DISADVANTAGES OF LASER HAIR REMOVAL?

In some cases, laser hair removal may cause blisters, scars, crusting of the skin, etc. Some effects also include greying of the hair.

HOW LONG DOES HAIR STAY REMOVED AFTER A LASER?

Removing hair completely through laser hair removal requires multiple sessions. Dermatologists recommend 6-8 sessions for complete removal. Once the treatment is complete, patients witness less hair regrowth months or years after the last treatment. Annual follow-up sessions can keep the hair from growing back.

CAN I SHAVE 1 HOUR BEFORE LASER?

Shaving is a necessary procedure before your laser hair removal. However, it also lifts a skin layer when you pass it over the surface of the skin. We recommend shaving the morning of your treatment or the night before.

IS STUBBLE OK FOR LASER HAIR REMOVAL?

We recommend shaving off any stubble the night before your treatment. The presence of stubble can hinder your treatment and cause pain, burns, or hyperpigmentation.
