Laser Hair Removal

The Nd-Yag laser is US-FDA approved for hair reduction in all skin types. We use the latest generation of high powered Yag lasers, the ‘synchro Hp Platform’, for hair removal in our clinic. Melanin, the pigment that gives colour to hair absorbs the laser beam. As the beam is absorbed by the hair follicle, heat is generated and destroys the hair follicle thus reducing the hair follicle’s ability to produce new hair.

The number of sittings required varies depending on regions of the body and individual clients, but anywhere between 6 and above sittings may be required. Nd-yag lasers have been proven to be better than diode lasers for Indian skin types, resulting in painless, scarless, permanent hair reduction. Women suffering from PCOD (poly cystic ovarian disease) or other endocrinological problems should get themselves evaluated and treated for the same before going in for laser hair removal.

Permanent Laser Hair Removal Treatment

Permanent laser hair removal treatment is a method that has been steadily growing in popularity over the last decade. The idea is to remove unwanted hair via a process of exposure to pulses of laser light that destroy the follicles. It fits the bill when it comes to the phrase – removing the root cause of a problem!

Laser hair removal costs fit right into the bracket of easily affordable. In the US, laser hair removal is one of the most commonly conducted cosmetic procedures as the negligible cost makes it worth it.

The benefits of laser hair removal are many, with the most obvious ones being aesthetic and hygiene-related. The actual procedure is considered superior to other commonly used methods of hair removal. The specificity involved with laser hair removal is unique.

It can target certain hairs based on thickness without affecting the surrounding areas. The length of the procedure is another plus point. Its ability to treat a patch of hair the size of a one-rupee coin within a second, combined with its longer-lasting effects, makes it a highly sought after option!
The primary reason that permanent laser hair removal is favoured by many is that it delivers results. The initial discomfort (similar to mild sunburn) fades away within a day or two, after which you’re free to enjoy all the benefits of permanent laser hair removal!
