Many people feel insecure because of the excess hair on their bodies. This is why they undergo laser treatment. Unlike shaving and waxing, laser treatment offers permanent results.

How does the hair removal procedure work?

During the laser hair removal process, the doctor will use a hand-held device which throws high energy laser light on the skin. The laser penetrates the skin and hits the hair follicles which are present beneath the skin layer. The best thing about the laser is that it does not harm the skin cells and tissues which are present around the treated area.

In some cases, topical anaesthesia is used to numb the skin. This makes the whole laser hair removal process painless.

What to do after the treatment

Once your hair removal treatment is complete, then the treated area will be swollen or become red. This will subside within a few days by applying the prescribed ointment. To speed up the healing process, you need to ensure that the treated area is not exposed to sunlight for a couple of days.

How much will it cost?

The cost of laser hair removal depends on various factors such as the area that needs treatment and the thickness of the hair. To some extent, even the colour of the hair affects the cost of laser treatment.
