Laser Hair Removal Process: How to Prepare and What to Expect?

by Rohit Verma executive

Shaving, waxing, tweezing, and other traditional methods of hair removal are a time-consuming process. Traditional methods of hair removal like waxing can leave unwanted bruising in sensitive skin areas. To get smooth, hair-free, soft skin with less effort, its time to switch to laser hair removal treatment.

Shaving is a painless process that can cause bumps and razor burn on the skin. On the other hand, laser hair removal is a painless treatment. One may feel a slight stinging and tingling sensation during the treatment but that is often short-lived. The results are long-lasting and cost-effective in the long run compared to other methods of hair removal.

DermaWorld Skin & Hair Clinic offers the best laser hair removal treatment in Delhi and at the clinic the best laser specialist and dermatologist uses the Gold Standard laser technology to deliver the best and safe results to their patients.

Laser hair removal is a simple, non-invasive process and uses light energy to remove unwanted body and face hair. The light emitted by the lasers is absorbed by the pigment present in the hair follicles that prevents any further growth. The treatment requires multiple sessions so that the hair roots are damaged at the first stage of growth. Once the hair root is damaged, then there will be no longer any hair growth.

Different laser wavelengths are used for different skin types.

  1. Diode
    This laser is suitable for dark hair and light skin tone.

  2. Alexandrite
    It is suitable for light hair and olive skin tone. It is quick and that’s why preferred for treating a large area of the body like legs, arms, back etc.

  3. ND-YAG
    It is suitable for all skin types and even tanned skin. But, it is not much effective for light or fine hair.

Preparation for laser hair removal treatment

If anyone wants to opt for laser hair removal treatment, they can follow these guidelines to get the best results.

  • The treated area must be shaved completely before the treatment. It must be shaved properly but no sooner than 24 hours as longer hair stands can cause laser burns.

  • It is recommended not to wax, thread or tweeze. One must not use any chemical depilatories before and during laser treatments as the laser targets the hair root, and they must be present to achieve effective benefits.

  • Only shaving is recommended before and during laser sessions, as shaving does not remove the hair root.

  • One must avoid sun exposure and tanning beds for about 2-4 weeks before treatment.

  • Always apply sunscreen of SPF 30+ and PA+++ daily to avoid tanning and sun-damage.

  • Avoid the application of photosensitive medication son the skin for about 5 days before treatment.

  • It is recommended to follow instructions regarding the consumption of medications before opting for laser treatment.

  • Do not opt for resurfacing treatments like chemical peels, microdermabrasion for about 14 days before opting for laser hair removal treatment.

What to expect during laser treatment?

Following the consultation, Dr. Rohit Batra, a leading laser hair removal in Delhi will determine if one is an ideal candidate for this treatment. Then the doctor also discusses the patient's medical history, skin condition, desired outcomes and clarifies any other doubts related to laser treatment. Then the target area is cleaned and is marked. Shaving is performed to remove surface hair, and the patient is given protective eyewear. Then the numbing cream or cooling gel is applied, and then the laser is rolled over the target area. Many lasers have a self-cooling mechanism that helps to make the treatment more comfortable. There is no downtime; patients can return to any normal activities immediately after treatment.

Aftercare recommended for laser hair removal treatment

  • Redness and swelling may occur at the treated site. Aloe vera gel and some medications are given to apply in the affected area. The symptoms are temporary and will correct within a couple of days.

  • The patient must protect their skin from excessive heat such as hot showers or sun exposure of the treated area, as this increases the risk of scarring and pigmentation changes in the skin.

  • Apply sunscreen with SPF 30+ and PA+++ daily.

  • One can perform shaving, but waxing and threading are not allowed in between the sessions.

  • Do not scratch or remove any scab from the treated area. This can increase the risk of getting scars or infections.

  • Stay hydrated and also consume a healthy diet.

  • Do not apply any creams without the prescription of a dermatologist after the treatment (talk to the doctor first).

It is important that the patient must undergo treatment in the supervision of a laser expert to achieve safe results. Dr. Rohit Batras DermaWorld Skin & Hair Clinic provides the Full Body Laser Hair Removal in Delhi. For more information, book an appointment today!
