There are so many methods for hair removal that are available to you. When it comes to laser hair removal there are few things that you need to know before getting one. It is important to do your own homework first before going for a treatment or considering investing in a home device. It is known that not all of us are happy with shaving, waxing, threading for hair removal. Laser hair removal can be an option that is worth considering. Laser hair removal is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments around the world. It works by beaming highly concentrated light into hair follicles, which then the pigment in the follicles absorbs the light which destroys the hair. We have come to accept our body hair and it is such a good thing but at the same time we do understand that for some people, hair removal might be a goal. If this is the case, then laser hair removing treatment can be the one for you. Once you have done your studies about the advantages and disadvantages of laser hair removal and its side effects, you can come to the decision to select the right treatment for you. Undergoing laser hair removal can help you in many ways such as ingrown hairs which can cause hyperpigmentation mainly in deep skin tones and of course removing the unwanted hair. It is also important to keep in mind that laser hair removal doesn't always result in permanent hair removal. You need to remember that laser hair removal takes time and money. There's several treatment sessions and you need to spend some money on it. In this article we will provide you with needed information about laser hair removal and as well bust some myths from avoiding sun exposure to triggering hair growth.

Is laser removal safe for all skin tones?

The long answer for this question is YES! It is safe for almost all skin types and tones as long as you have done your homework and choose the right laser treatment. So often, women of color think that laser hair removal is simply not an option for them or that the risks of burning can be higher for darker skin tones which can outweigh the benefits of the kind of smooth skin that only laser treatment can provide. Laser hair removal is for all skin types not just for those with light skin and dark hair, in fact this laser treatment can be a great option for women of all skin tones.

Advantages of laser hair removal treatment

Less pain: This depends on your hair type and the service area. Usually when it comes to pain level for many people, the laser treatment falls under between shaving and waxing. As we know, shaving doesn't cost that much pain while waxing can be a real pain. The technicians normally use numbing gel to reduce the discomfort feeling before and after the treatment. Sensitive areas such as the bikini line and underarm may be more painful. But overall, the treatment gets less painful by each and every session.

Speed: Each pulse of the laser takes a fraction of a second to treat many hairs at a time. Areas such as the upper lip can be treated in less than a minute while large areas like the back or legs may take up to an hour.

Precision: Lasers often selectively target dark, coarse hairs while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged.

Reduce hair growth: Even though the laser treatment does not permanently remove the hair, It does reduce the hair growth to a point that many patients don't even notice any hair for months or even years. The hairs that do crop up are normally thinner and lighter in color.

Predictability: Most patients after an average of three to seven sessions have seen permanent hair loss.

Cover any areas of your body: Laser hair removal can be done anywhere on your body and it is also easy to use as the machine can cover large areas such as back and leg. There is no limit when it comes to the places you can get laser hair removal. Legs, bikini line, stomach and face are a few of them. Always make sure the laser treatment you're taking is safe and effective for your skin and hair color.

Permanent hair loss: If anybody wants a permanent hair loss, repeating laser hair removal can help.

Disadvantages of laser hair removal treatment

Blisters: Blistering is a second-degree burn. This happens due to the inexperienced or unqualified technicians performing the laser therapy. Blisters may cause discomfort. If it is left untreated, it may lead to scarring and pigmentation changes. Others can experience swelling, scarring and redness. Don't worry, permanent scarring and changes in skin color doesn't happen often. Scarring normally can be a result of the complication related to laser burns. This is because of the improper use of laser machines.

Pregnant: Laser hair removal is not recommended if you are pregnant. “Although lasers have been safely used to treat medical conditions like kidney stones and genital warts in pregnant people, there’s no safety data presently available to support using lasers for cosmetic procedures like hair removal,” Dr. Maiman explains. There are many doctors who have advised against undergoing cosmetic laser treatments while pregnant.

Sunburned: Maybe after a day or two, the treated area of your skin may feel and look sunburned. If you have done the treatment on your face, you still can wear makeup unless you are experiencing blisters. Certain moisturizers may help to reduce the burn. Try to wear sunscreen the following month which can help in preventing the temporary changes in the color of the treated skin.

Long process: .Session of laser hair removal on small areas like underarms and upper lips can take up to five minutes or less. But it does take multiple sessions to see the results, typically between four and six sessions. You also need to wait around six weeks between treatments.

Hyperpigmentation

Hyperpigmentation is referred to as darkening of the skin. This normally fades away within three months but can also last for about six to eight months. This is generally observed in patients with darker skin and will be treated with excessive laser energies or epidermal cooling.

Types of laser hair removal treatments

IPL Hair Removal Treatment

Our New Beauty clinics offer the IPL Hair Removal Treatment. This treatment helps to remove your unwanted body hair, regardless of its thickness and density. IPL energy locates and destroys melanin particles in the hair follicle. The IPL heat ruins hair follicles to remove the current fuzz. While removing unwanted hair, the hand piece emits cold waves through its sapphire cooling spot by calming down potential redness and irritation and giving a comfortable hair removal experience. The IPL heat also shrinks the capillaries to cut off hair follicles' nutrient supply which effectively prevents future hair growth from hair root.

Ruby Hair Removal Laser

Ruby hair removal laser treatment is the first ever system that was developed for permanent hair reduction. This system works by targeting melanin using a shorter wavelength of 694nm. This makes this treatment ideal for removing light and thin hair. On the other side, this treatment is not recommended for darker skin tones. The Ruby laser system has a long pause between laser pulses which helps to decrease discomfort.

Diode Hair Removal Lasers

Diode machines are a newly developed laser hair removal market. They use semiconductors, known as diodes, which are grouped together to create a laser beam with a wavelength of 800-810nm. This longer wavelength is apt for penetrating deep into the hair follicle. This treatment is safe for darker skin types and also good in removing thick hair. Because of this, this treatment is well known among men who want to remove back hair or chest hair. This treatment is also known to cover a large treatment area, such as the back in a little more than 30 minutes.

Alexandrite Laser Hair Removal

This laser treatment operates at a wavelength of 755 nm. This makes this as an ideal for targeting the melanin in individuals' hair follicles with light to olive skin tones. This laser treatment is apt for lighter skin tone people and it may cause slight pain than other laser treatments. So if you are looking for the one with less pain, maybe consider other treatments. Because of the shorter wavelength, it may take a few sessions to get the result. Even though this treatment is not permanent, it is longer lasting than other hair removal methods like waxing or shaving.

Nd and LP Nd: YAG

This heavy-duty laser works wonders on thicker and coarser hair. It is a good choice for darker skin types. In fact, this treatment can be less effective on people with lighter skin and fine hair. Of all the laser treatments, Nd and LP Nd: YAG treatments have the longest wavelength which can cause pain and can be more uncomfortable than other types. Because this treatment has the longest wavelength it can penetrate the deepest and they can reach the absolute bottom of the root of the hair which kill it permanently after several sessions.
