Laser Hair Removal : Full Body and Face
Classification and external resources
Laser Treatment is one of the most advanced procedures for removal of unwanted hair; it’s faster and more comfortable. Simple and permanent unwanted hair reduction solution and known to be one of the safest hair reduction option too; it is an alternative to plucking, shaving, waxing, electrolysis, or chemical depilatories. The reason why this is not called permanent hair removal is because almost invisible hair may still be left after the complete treatment. The Laser treatment for hair removal is generally done over many sittings for permanent hair removal. Many men & women are increasingly making use of this technology for unwanted hair reduction.
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.
Other Types of Hair Reduction Techniques
Intense Pulsed Light
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 targetted body area. At AK Clinics, we have found this techqniue 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 the technique is not much in use independently as it could most effectively treat light skin tones. In the darker tones it has tendency to burn the skin. The laser has very good skin penetration rate.

Side effects and Risks
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..
