How does laser hair removal work?

Laser hair removal uses the principle of selective photothermolysis. Combining a specific wavelength and pulse duration allows the laser to direct light energy to a specific chromophore in the skin without damaging the surrounding tissue. The laser emits light energy that targets the pigment in the hair shaft. Once the hair absorbs the energy, it is converted into heat that reaches the follicle and cuts off its blood supply, thus inhibiting hair growth.

If you are going to have laser hair removal for the first time, it is important to note that this is not a one-time procedure. Hairs are in different phases of growth. This requires a series of treatments to achieve optimal results. A series of treatments at intervals of several weeks is usually recommended. This reduces hair growth and achieves a longer lasting effect.

Is the effect of laser hair removal lasting?

Laser hair removal is a method of reducing hair growth in the long term. This procedure reduces hair by up to 90%. The results of hair removal using professional lasers vary from person to person. The chosen zone also has an impact.

The chosen area, skin phototype, hair colour and density, genetics, hormone levels and other factors all have an impact.

How long does the first laser hair removal procedure take?

The duration of the laser session will depend on the size of the area treated. It doesn’t matter if you are doing laser hair removal for the first time or have already gone through some procedures. Treating a small area such as the armpits will take little time. On the other hand, large areas such as laser hair removal on the leg will require more.

Does it hurt during the first procedure?

If you have used traditional ways of hair removal before, we can safely say that they are much more painful. Pain is a subjective concept. Each person has a different threshold to pain. However, we can argue that the removal of hair by laser hair removal is more painless than waxing or epilator. During the procedure, you may feel mild discomfort, which is completely tolerable.

What to expect after laser hair removal for the first time?

Once you’ve decided to have laser hair removal for the first time, you may be wondering what to expect after the procedure. Laser hair removal is an effective method of removing unwanted hair permanently, but it is important to be informed about possible skin reactions and how to deal with them.

What happens for 24 to 48 hours after laser hair removal for the first time

After the first laser hair removal procedure, you may experience some temporary skin reactions. Typically, within 24 to 48 hours after the procedure, the skin may be more sensitive and slightly irritated. Redness of the skin in the treated area is normal. To deal with this, you should avoid hot showers, saunas and intense exercise, which can contribute to more irritation. You can apply aloe vera gel, which will help soothe the skin.

A week after a laser hair removal procedure

The week after the first procedure, you will notice hair falling out. This is perfectly normal and should not be confused with new growth. No waxing or tweezers should be used.

3 to 4 weeks after laser hair removal

The treated area will be smooth for about four to six weeks after the first laser hair removal session. After this period, patients will notice small fine hairs starting to grow again. Removal of these hairs by methods other than shaving should be avoided, as they will be the subject of the next prodrome to be performed around this time.

Within 3 months after your first laser hair removal

At this point, at least two treatments should have already passed and the hair on the legs, bikini area, chest, face, underarms or arms, depending on the area treated, will have decreased by at least 50%. The results are individual for each person, but in most cases between 30 and 50% of the hair is reduced.

Laser hair removal is among the most commonly performed cosmetic procedures in the country due to its effectiveness and the benefits it provides. If you’re someone who constantly has to take the time to shave  or wax, you should definitely take the plunge and take advantage of laser hair removal.
