How Does the Laser Hair Reduction Procedure Work?
This laser treatment for hair removal works on the principle of selective photothermolysis (SPTL). The process is to use a specific match of wavelength & pulse duration to get the optimal effect on the targeted hair follicles. The efficacy of the procedures depends on the cause of unwanted hair and the skill of the clinic; some patients may require touch sessions after completing the complete cycle of sittings.

Types of Laser Hair Removal
There are number of wavelengths used as laser energy which are used for laser hair removal procedure. For hair removal in specific areas, there are some lasers which are better and effective.
This technique, most commonly called as IPL, is even currently in use for permanent hair reduction. This is very effective in darker & coarser hair. Though the operating doctor need a lot of experience as this may also cause skin burns.
In this technique, individual hair are removed from the targeted body area. At AK Clinics, we have found this technique extremely helpful for white hair as other forms prove ineffective. After a fine probe is inserted in the hair follicle, the hair are removed wit tweezers.
This treatment is found most effective in finer and thinner hair. Though this technique is not much in use independently, as it could most effectively treat the light skin tones. In the darker tones it has tendency to burn the skin. The laser has very good skin penetration rate.
It is considered as most suitable technology for laser hair removal. In this technique, a diode laser uses the semiconductor technology which targets specific chromophores in the skin. It offers the deepest penetration levels and superior melanin absorption.
This is the recent form of laser hair removal technique. “Nd” stands for Neodymium and “YAG” stands for yttrium aluminum garnet. This technique is mostly used for tattoo removal and hyper-pigmentation, but it can be used for removing hair too.
Specifications of Various Lasers
|Laser Used||Wavelength (nm)||Light Source|
|Ruby||694.3 nm||Deep red|

8 Side effects and Risks of Laser Hair reduction Treatment
You may experience following side effects after laser hair reduction but don’t worry, these side effects are common and rarely seen. They are not permanent & 100% recoverable or reversible with time. However, these side-effects can be minimized if laser hair treatment is performed by a skilled doctor.
You may experience blisters on the treated area after laser hair removal. Do not pop these blisters. Let them heal naturally. Blister fluid will aid in healing and act as biological dressing. Consult with your doctor. He will prescribe you ointment for these blisters.
Burning & Scaring
If laser temperature is set too high, you may notice burns or scars on your skin. Just consult with your doctor and allow the new skin to heal underneath the burned skin. Try to keep cool the burned area after laser hair removal treatment.
This is another very common problem after an ablative laser treatment. It can be treated by using skin creams. Visit doctor and discuss this. He will prescribe you skin ointments which reduces the melanin content.
Hypo-pigmentation (Skin lightening)
Skin has the ability to treat itself. But you never know how long it will take. There are topical creams available for hypo-pigmentation. You can use those creams by consulting with doctor which will maintain the melanin content in your skin.
You may also observe scabs formation after laser hair removal on the treated area. Along with it, mild bruising may also occur if your skin is sensitive. No need to worry. These side effects will not last long. They will disappear shortly
Irritation in Eyes
Eyes are the most sensitive body part. Due to the laser used in the treatment, you may see redness or may feel irritation in eyes. It is important to cover your eyes properly before your laser hair removal treatment.
Tingling sensation or numbness is a common side effect of laser hair removal. It will not last long and will be normal within few days.

What to expect during & after the LHR Procedure
During the Procedure
Some level of pain should be expected when undergoing Laser Hair removal procedure. Though we use anaesthetic creams to reduce the pain sensation. We also use icing during the procedure to even give a better experience of no pain sensation. Our doctors and technicians are very sensitive to patient’s discomfort and have large experience with lasers. We offer trial sessions to the patients so that they can make a informed choice.
Post Procedure Complications
Some of very rare incidents of hypo-pigmentation and hyper-pigmentation are also seen with diode lasers. Also some patients must have experienced acne and swelling around hair follicles. We have reduced the chances to negligible by choosing appropriate laser and custom settings for every patient. Some patients also are allergic to anaesthetic creams so we take measures to avoid pain.
Reduction not Removal
Most commonly the procedure is called as Laser Hair Removal but no one in the world has seen 100% removal. The growth gets limited to unnoticeable thin hair. That is the reason that now the terminology is slowly changing to hair reduction rather than hair removal. After the complete procedure, some patients need maintenance sittings every 12-15 months..
Frequently Ask Questions
Also avoid sun exposure, six weeks prior & post laser therapy.
Another extremely important precaution to take is protective eye gear to be worn. The technician also needs to test the treatment on a smaller area and ice packs, anti-inflammatory creams need to be provided to you, post-treatment. A gap of more than a month is required between sessions.
Feel free to ask your surgeon, how many laser sessions he or she has conducted before signing for any treatment. Ensure that expertise level is high to prevent complications later on. Laser hair removal (LHR) works best on dark hair and light skin.
