Laser hair removal is a non-invasive (non-surgical) procedure used to permanently remove unwanted hair from the face and body. It works by directing pulses of intensely concentrated light of a single wavelength into anagen-phase hair follicles (new growth). The melanin pigment found in hair follicles absorbs the laser light and generates heat, which damages the hair follicles. The laser applicator is then moved to the adjacent skin area, and the procedure is repeated until the entire target area is covered.
Ambrosia Aesthetics offers the Best Laser Hair Removal in Mumbai under the supervision of laser treatment expert Dr. Niketa Sonavane.
Ambrosia Aesthetics' triple wavelength diode laser is the most advanced and safe laser available for hair removal on dark to light skin types. The laser beam penetrates the skin more deeply than other lasers, does not damage the epidermis, and directly targets hair follicles.
Who are the best candidates for laser hair removal?
While laser hair removal may be suitable for all individuals, it may not be equally effective in all cases. An ideal candidate, according to early laser technologies, has dark, coarse hair and a fair to light skin tone. This means that light hair cannot absorb the amount of light required to destroy hair follicles, and dark-skinned individuals are more likely to develop hyperpigmentation. As a result, it is critical to seek treatment from a dermatologist to ensure the safety and effectiveness of the procedure. On the other hand, individuals with darker skin tones can now receive laser hair removal in Mumbai, as the lasers used at Ambrosia Aesthetics can provide equal benefits to individuals with varying skin tones. However, some individuals may require additional sessions to receive the full benefits of laser hair removal.
How often should laser hair removal procedures be performed?
Treatment time is dependent on the size or area of the treatment site. Hair begins to fall out within a few weeks of the initial session (a significant difference is usually observed within 2-3 weeks). Six to eight treatment sessions are typically necessary to achieve complete, long-lasting results. When hair begins to emerge from a new hair growth cycle, the following treatments can be scheduled.
What steps can be taken to improve the comfort and effectiveness of laser treatment?
Prior to initiating treatment, the patient should bear the following in mind:
Avoid prolonged exposure to direct sunlight.
Avoid antibiotics that are photosensitive, as they may cause skin burning when exposed to a laser.
The night before the treatment, the area to be treated must be cleanly shaved.
Consumption of alcoholic beverages is prohibited at least one day prior to scheduled treatment.
A numbing cream is applied at least 30 minutes prior to the procedure to alleviate discomfort during or after the procedure. Additionally, before the laser is applied to the skin, a cooling gel is applied to prepare the skin for the heat.
Laser hair removal is a painless procedure that causes no discomfort to the patient. There is only a slight stinging sensation and heat, which are easily tolerated by the majority of people. Even those with sensitive skin will benefit from the application of numbing cream and cooling gel.
How should I look after myself following a laser treatment?
Avoid sun tanning for a few weeks.
Every day, apply sunscreen. Reapply every 3-4 hours.
For at least one day, abstain from going to the gym, taking a hot bath, or using a sauna.
Which of the following are some of the benefits of laser hair removal?
It results in smooth skin that is free of ingrown hairs and razor burns.
It is safe for all skin types and colours. Unlike shaving, waxing, or plucking, which can leave unsightly cuts or irritated skin, laser hair removal is both safe and effective.
After treatment, the patient can immediately resume his or her normal routine.
It is ideal for any area of the body that has an excess of hair. All areas of the body are covered, including the face, legs, bikini line, chest, back, abdomen, arms, and underarms.
The treatment is precise due to the laser beam being precisely directed to the hair follicles.
It takes only one course, and the results are long-lasting. Once the suggested sessions have been completed, maintenance sessions will be required only once or twice a year. As a result, it saves time for individuals who must regularly shave or wax.
Unlike other methods of hair removal that require ongoing expenditure, laser hair removal requires only a single payment (in the case of advance payment) or payment for each session (6-8) used. As a result, you'll save money over time.
