Laser energy is a proven method to reduce unwanted hair from your skin. At Derma Solutions results are long lasting, discomfort is tolerable, and side effects are minimal for skin and hair.
At Derma Solutions we have DIODE and Q switch lasers which permit us to customize each treatment program. Energy from this laser interacts with the melanin pigment in hair but not the pigment in skin. This allows us to remove the hair without heating the skin. The laser cannot treat white, blond, or grey hair. EPISHEER DIODE Laser platform is a very effective device which gives optimum results in minimizing the thickness and density of hair without any side effects.
1. How do I know if I need laser hair removal?
If you find that removing unwanted hair by shaving, waxing, and threading is difficult and time consuming, you may want to consider laser hair removal. Even regular waxing causes thickening of hair and discolouration of the skin. Hair reduction by a laser procedure is permanent, long lasting and eliminates the need for constant manual maintenance. Our lasers are effective on all skin types and hair colors.
2. How does Laser hair removal work?
The first step is to cover the target area with an ultrasound gel. Then your provider applies pulses of laser energy to your skin. During this time your skin feels momentary hot spot. The cool laser probe minimizes discomfort and prevents side effects. Treatment time is 10 to 60 minutes, depending on the size of the target area. Follow-up treatments are performed at 4 to 8-week intervals. Almost 6-8 sessions are necessary to provide you optimum results.
3. What benefits can I expect?
You can expect removal of 30% to 90% of your hair after 3 to 10 laser treatments. The rest of the hair grows back and requires follow-up treatments. Not all hair is removed in a single treatment because hair strands exist at different growth stages, some in which hair is pigmented and others in which hair is not pigmented. To be absorbed by laser energy, hair strands must have pigment. Hair strands in a non-pigmented growth stage cannot interact with laser energy and will not be removed until they reach a growth stage in which they are pigmented.
As you may suspect, white hair and light-colored hair require more treatments than dark hair. For these reasons we can’t guarantee removal of 100% of hair. This laser is approved by the FDA for removing hair in people of all skin types. The location of hair also affects their ease of removal. Hair in the underarms, bikini line, and legs are easy to remove, while facial hair requires multiple treatments due to hormonal effects.
4. What are the risks and side effects?
Although uncommon, a superficial blister or scab may develop after treatment. Healing typically requires 2 to 14 days with regular use of antibiotic ointment. Infection is rare because the skin is not broken during treatment. A scar may form in less than 1 in 20 treatments. Changes in skin color may occur, although this is very rare. Treatment of pigmentary abnormalities consists of prescription creams, chemical peels, or further laser treatment.
Skin color changes happen in only 1 in 20 cases. Skin that is tanned or naturally dark has a higher risk of side effects. That’s why it’s important to allow your suntan or artificial tan to fade before treatment. If your skin is naturally dark you may need additional treatments because we treat dark skin more conservatively to minimize side effects. Prior to treatment all potential risks and side effects will be discussed with you by your medical provider and cosmetic coordinator.
5. Is there another way to get the same effect?
Yes. Shaving, plucking, waxing, use of depilatories and electrolysis are other ways to remove hair. Lasers have many advantages over these traditional techniques. For example, lasers treat all your hair in a single session, whereas electrolysis treats only single small sections each time. This means that more sessions are required with electrolysis than with lasers. Lasers also eliminate ingrown hairs that form after waxing and plucking. This capability helps to remove hair in people with folliculitis.
6. Can this be combined with other treatments?
Yes. Laser hair removal may be combined with other cosmetic treatments, most of them on the same day as laser treatment.
7. Who should not have Laser Hair Removal?
Patients who are pregnant or have taken Isotretinoin for acne, during the previous three months should not have laser hair removal. If you wear a pacemaker or defibrillator you may not be treated with devices which, in addition to laser or light energy. If you have recently waxed, plucked, or bleached your target hair you should postpone laser hair removal.
8. What is the cost of Laser Hair Removal?
The fee for laser hair removal depends on the area to be treated and the number of sessions advised by your dermatologist.
Many people have unwanted hair growth on their skin, especially the face, which they want to eliminate. At Derma Solutions, we provide an efficient technique to remove unwanted hair using the laser. Our adept team of dermatologists in Bangalore uses a Q-switched laser and diode to apply radiation to the subject area.
The radiation from this type of laser hair removal targets the melanin content on the hair pigment, not the skin. Therefore, the laser does not affect the person’s face or skin. The prerequisite in this method is that the hair needs to be pigmented. As a result, this treatment method cannot remove grey, blond, or white hair. However, it may eliminate lightly pigmented hair strands through multiple sessions.
Various areas on the face and other body parts show effective results with our laser hair removal technique in Bangalore Women often want to remove unwanted hair on their upper lip, chin, and sideburns. These are typically the areas where hair growth is common and conspicuous. Other body parts that both men and women can employ include the chest, back, neck, arms, hands, underarms, legs, feet, and back.
