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

Electrolysis

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.

Alexandrite Laser

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.

We strive to provide highest quality at affordable cost with hygiene and imported equipments

The laser used by us makes the procedure nearly painless. With very few before and after treatment guidelines to be ensured, make the whole procedure an absolute pleasure. This is the most effective, painless and permanent solution for body hair removal. In addition, our laser is uniquely safe for all skin types including tanned skin, something that many other hair removal lasers are unable to offer.
It actually depends upon the area, amount and density of the hair. Generally it takes 6-8 sittings which are 4 to 6 weeks apart. This is most effective at the time when the hair follicle is most pigmented.
No. the procedure requires no downtime or recovery time. You can return to work immediately after laser therapy.
Shaving, tweezing and waxing are traditional ways to remove unwanted hair, while laser hair removal is fast gaining popularity as a cosmetic procedure to remove unwanted hair. When hair follicles are beamed with highly concentrated light, it destroys the hair. Its main advantage, is mainly its speed, as small areas such as the upper lip can be treated in less than a minute, while large areas – the back or legs, barely require an hour.
It is vital to thoroughly check the credentials of the doctor who will adjust the equipment based on your skin and hair colour, thickness of hair and several other parameters. Just because ‘zapping’ unwanted hair is convenient doesn’t mean you forego certain rules of hygiene and safety. First and foremost, you should not undergo plucking, waxing, or electrolysis for six weeks before treatment, as the laser targets the hairs’ roots, which have already been (although temporarily) removed by waxing or plucking.
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.
There is no stipulated or mandatory number of sessions. Effect will differ from person to person as skin texture varies even between family members. Visible effects in the form of permanent hair reduction could on an average take four to six weeks, while some require even a dozen sessions for the same result. There have also been cases where people have been satisfied with their results across just two sessions.

 

 

Side effects and Risks

Laser Hair reduction is known to have no long term side effects. Some of the temporary may include itching, redness or swelling around the treated area. These normally last for a couple of days. There are rare cases of acne & skin discolouration which gets settled in few months.

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..
