  • What is laser hair removal treatment?

    In today’s world, unwanted hair on visible areas is one of the many problems women face. Frequent visits to the beauty parlour seem worthless but laser hair removal treatment is one such treatment that can put this to rest.

    Laser hair removal – know-how

    Laser hair removal treatment is performed by using laser light energy. The laser creates a beam of highly concentrated light that penetrates deeply into the skin where heat is produced. The light absorbs the pigment located in the hair follicles and destroys numerous hair roots at a time. Laser hair removal slows down the growth of hair and during this procedure, the surrounding skin remains unaffected. It generally consists of 6-8 sessions.

    Laser hair removal- Before & after

    Before undergoing this procedure the doctor first reviews your medical history to know your medical status. The doctor also examines your skin to make a note of the condition of your hair follicle.
