LASER HAIR REDUCTION

Traditional hair removal methods of shaving, epilation, waxing and tweezing have been around for a long time. Radiograph machines were used in the early twentieth century for removal of facial hair. Electrolysis was used for a fairly long time and has served well depending upon the expertise of the treatment giver. Advent of medical lasers led to increased research in management of skin disorders including hair removal.

In almost all the races excess hair and/or unwanted hair are of tremendous medical, social and cultural importance. At the same time unwanted hair also attracts unnecessary attention and therefore it is important to remove these hairs. With the use of lasers, removal of unwanted hair can be permanent and painless.

The efficacy of laser hair removal makes it popular and this process has gained popularity in the last few years due to its long-lasting results. It is one of the safest and cost-effective methods to remove excess hair. The laser rays destroy the hair follicle and result in reducing hair growth. Due to the destruction of the hair follicle the risk of ingrown hair is reduced and lasers give smooth and clear skin.

Laser hair removal can be used on most parts of the body, including:

  • Face

  • Armpits

  • Back

  • Chest

  • Neck

  • Shoulders

  • Arms

  • Legs

  • Bikini area

The amount of hair removed during each treatment varies. Areas that have thinner skin such as the armpits and neck area may require fewer treatments than thicker-skinned areas. The back and chin are areas that have thicker skin.

Once the hair follicle has died, it will never return. However, there may be dormant follicles in the treated areas. These may begin to grow in the future. It is very common that this occurs during puberty, pregnancy and menopause. Certain diseases, as well as some medications, can also cause dormant follicles to begin to grow. Most people will need some "touch up" treatments over time, especially if it is a large area like the legs or back.


Certain medical conditions and medications may exclude you from being able to receive laser hair removal. That is why a full medical history is taken prior to beginning a treatment series. This is essential in determining if laser hair removal is a safe option for you. You cannot start a laser hair removal series if you are pregnant, nursing or are unable to limit excessive sun exposure. Our top priority is always to provide a treatment that is both effective and safe.
