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.

Anagen Phase Laser beam first passes through the epidermal layer of skin and further to the hair follicles
Catagen PhaseLaser gets absorbed by the hair shaft and heat is generated around the hair follicle due to high beam intensity
Telogen PhaseGenerated heat damages the hair follicles and impedes the hair growth, resulting in hair free skin

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.

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.
Electrolysis
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.
Alexandrite Laser
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.
Pulsed Diode Array
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.
Nd: YAG
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

Alexandrite 755 nm Near-infrared
Pulsed diode array 810 nm Near-infrared
Nd:YAG 1064 nm Near-infrared

What to expect during & after the LHR Procedure

LHR is completely a non-surgical procedure. This is generally considered an office hour procedure with no downtime. Some of the people may experience mild burns but that is generally rare and 100% recoverable. This procedure is much better, cost effective and hygienic than a parlour waxing or razors

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..
