What is Laser Hair Reduction?

Dealing with unwanted hair can be frustrating and inconvenient, as we at Facethetics Skin Clinic are aware of. We are happy to provide laser hair reduction treatments as a secure and efficient way to get rid of unwanted hair on different parts of the body. Our cutting-edge laser technology focuses on hair follicles, preventing them from growing and producing long-lasting smooth, hairless skin. Regardless of whether you’re sick of shaving, waxing, or plucking, our laser hair reduction procedures can help you get the smooth, silky skin you’ve always wanted.

Procedure

Our laser hair reduction treatments at Facethetics Skin Clinic are performed by experienced technicians using state-of-the-art laser technology. Here’s what you can expect during your treatment:

1. Consultation: You will meet with one of our professionals prior to the procedure to go over your skin type, medical history, and desired level of hair removal. We will determine whether you are a good candidate for laser hair reduction and adjust the treatment plan to fit your specific requirements.


2. Preparation:The treatment area will be cleaned on the day of your appointment, and to help you feel as comfortable as possible throughout the process, a topical numbing lotion might be used. Protective eyewear will be given to you in order to screen your eyes from the laser light.

3. Laser Treatment: Our technician will target the hair follicles in the treatment region using a portable laser instrument. Concentrated light pulses that the laser emits are absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicles, causing damage and preventing new hair growth. Most people find the operation acceptable, though there may be a slight warmth or tingling sensation afterward.

4. Post-Treatment Care: You can have moderate redness or irritation in the treated area after the laser hair reduction procedure, but these side effects usually go away in a few hours to a few days. You will receive aftercare instructions from our specialist to help you recuperate as quickly and as comfortably as possible.

Benefits

  • Permanent Hair Reduction:After a course of treatments, many patients have a permanent reduction in hair growth, demonstrating the long-lasting nature of laser hair reduction.
  • Precision Targeting: Hair follicles are precisely targeted by laser technology used in hair removal treatments, sparing surrounding skin from injury.
  • Speed and Efficiency: Small areas like the upper lip can be treated in a matter of minutes, while bigger areas like the legs or back require approximately an hour for laser hair reduction treatments. The procedure is rapid and effective
  • Improved Skin Texture:Laser hair reduction not only stops hair from growing, but it also makes the skin in the treated region look and feel better.

Side Effects

While laser hair reduction is generally safe, some potential side effects may occur, including:

  • Redness and Irritation: Mild redness and irritation in the treated area are common after laser hair reduction treatments, but these side effects typically resolve within a few hours to a few days.
  • Skin Discoloration: In some cases, laser hair reduction treatments may cause temporary changes in skin pigmentation, such as darkening or lightening of the skin. These changes are usually temporary and resolve on tdheir own over time.
  • Risk of Burns or Blisters: Rarely, laser hair reduction treatments may cause burns or blisters, particularly if the skin is not adequately protected or if the treatment is performed by an inexperienced technician.

Aftercare

To promote optimal results and minimize the risk of side effects, it’s important to follow these aftercare guidelines:

  • Avoid Sun Exposure: Protect the treated area from sun exposure and wear sunscreen with a high SPF to prevent skin damage and minimize the risk of hyperpigmentation.
  • Avoid Irritating Products: Avoid using harsh or abrasive skincare products on the treated area, as these may cause irritation or inflammation.
  • Follow Up as Directed: Depending on your individual needs and treatment plan, you may need to schedule multiple laser hair reduction sessions to achieve optimal results. Follow up with your technician as directed to ensure the best possible outcome.
