Locks on the scalp can define one’s personality and be the make or break factor. However, hair on other parts of the body for women particularly are often undesirable. For ages, people have been getting rid of them using different kinds of techniques that offer a varying degree of success.
However, most of these options are minimally effective, painful and temporary. They need to be repeated after a few days to keep the hair away. Laser hair removal Dubai is the perfect solution in this regard. It works very well and provides the finest results. Laser hair removal can be used both for complete hair removal as well as for thinning hair which many men prefer.
We shall learn more about laser hair removal and why it is the option you should choose when you are looking to get rid of unwanted hair.
How laser hair removal works?
Laser hair removal has an uncomplicated mechanism of work. The laser targets the dark matter, the melanin, which is present in the follicles. As the melanin heats up, it shrinks the size of the follicle and eventually inhibits the ability to reproduce hair. Shedding starts to take place within a few days and the follicles appear similar to blackheads. The treatment takes a few minutes to be completed.
Why you should opt for it?
In the following lines, we shall examine the reasons as to why you should opt for laser hair removal ahead of other more traditional methods.
Pain during treatment
Laser hair removal is not entirely free from pain and sensation similar to snapping of a rubber band against the skin can be experienced during the treatment. However, it can be numbed down by applying a cooling gel to the treated area. Cool air can also be blown with the help of a handheld device during the procedure to ensure that the person getting the treatment remains comfortable. The pain though is a lot less than what is experienced during waxing and plucking.
The side effects are not very severe for the most part and are limited to itching, swelling, redness and tenderness to touch in treated area. It generally takes less than 48 hours for the side effects to subside on their own. In rare cases, discoloration of skin can take place.
Photosensitivity is expected after the treatment which can last from a few days to a few weeks. It is important to avoid the sun and take necessary precautions including use of a broad spectrum sunscreen and wear full clothing in the treated regions.
One of the best parts about the treatment is that there is no downtime. A person can get back to his or her work soon after the session has been completed. Rest is recommended and it is not a bad idea to take a day or two off if that is possible for you after the treatment. First time treatment seekers should definitely do this to understand what to expect post treatment in future.
Number of sessions
Like most noninvasive treatments, the job needs several sessions to be entirely completed. Generally six to seven sessions are enough to remove all the unwanted hair though this can vary depending on individual requirements. A break of four to six weeks is taken after each session.
Does it work for everyone?
Laser hair removal is ideal for people whose skin tone is considerably lighter than the color of their hair. It is generally not ideal for people with darker skin tones since their skin may get damaged by the laser. The treatment is also not useful for grey or very light colored hair.
The best part of this treatment are the results. Unlike the rest of the options, laser hair removal not only offers a smooth skin but also results that are permanent in nature. Other treatments need to be repeated within a week or so. However, once the sessions have been completed with the laser treatment, the hair do not grow back. Once a year touchup sessions are all that is required to take care of any hair that were in resting phase during the original treatments.
The bottom line
Laser hair removal is noninvasive treatment option that is highly effective and works well for both men and women. It can help a person get rid of the unwanted hair permanently. Some people say the cost of the treatment is high. However, when one compares it with the cost of constantly needed hair removal through other options, laser hair removal is quite economical in the longer run. Laser hair removal also does not cause ingrown hair or infections which is quite common with other hair removal options. If you want hair removal, laser is the best of all options.
