Laser hair removal treatment is one of the most commonly and popularly done cosmetic procedures. The treatment beams highly concentrated light into hair follicles. Pigment in the follicles absorb the light that destroys the hair. This laser hair reduction option tends to work best in people with light skin tones and darker hair. Laser hair reduction works best with darker hair colours on light skin tones. This is because the lasers target hair melanin (colour).
Dermapuritys believe in the foremost and latest technologies. The laser hair reduction treatment is virtually painless. We at Dermapuritys use ‘SOPRANO TITANIUM’ which is US FDA Approved and clinically proven 3D technology. By combining three different laser wavelengths in one applicator, the Soprano Titanium is capable of treating bespoke needs. The results may vary depending on the type of skin or the thickness of hairs.
Before starting a series of laser hair reduction there are a few things that everybody should know. To be precise it is more properly called laser hair reduction as opposed to laser hair reduction, as the treatment can significantly reduce the volume and density of the hair, but there will always be some hair follicles. We’ve listed the top 10 things you need to know before having laser hair in Delhi at Dermapuritys, so that you can be prepared for your treatments and be rewarded with those silky-smooth results!
1. SHAVE BEFORE YOU GO
We ask that all clients shave about 24 hours before their appointments. Do NOT proceed to come in with your hairy self. This isn’t like waxing, and you don’t need to grow your unwanted hair out beforehand.
2. BUT DON’T TWEEZE OR WAX IN BETWEEN SESSIONS
It’s essential that you avoid tweezing or waxing prior to laser hair reduction as the laser actually targets the pigment of the hair follicle itself, so if it’s gone the laser won’t be effective.
3. TAKE ALL YOUR MAKEUP OFF-SERIOUSLY, ALL OF IT
At times, there are some patients who usually claim they didn’t put makeup on the morning of the treatment, or that they don’t have any products on their skin but they do apply some form of makeup. It is strictly advisable to take all your makeup off seriously for the protection of your skin.
4. GO TO A BOARD-CERTIFIED DERMATOLOGIST
Patients interested in laser hair removal treatment in Delhi should understand it’s not a simple procedure. It has risks, even though it’s performed extensively in spas and salon therefore you should go to a board-certified dermatologist like at Dermapuritys as it helps improve your hair-reduction results.
5. YOUR PHYSICIAN WILL PROVIDE A TEST PATCH ON YOUR SKIN AT YOUR FIRST APPOINTMENT
Not everyone’s skin will react well to cosmetic laser treatment in Delhi. Problems like pigment issues, discoloration, and scarring can occur with some skin types, which is why it’s necessary to allow your dermatologist to conduct a small test patch first.
6. STAY OUT OF THE SUN BEFORE YOUR APPOINTMENT
Stay out of the sun at least four weeks before, to be exact. You can’t undergo laser hair reduction treatment if you’re sunburned or even if you have a tan. Summer might not be the best time to start laser hair removal if you’re a fan of the outdoors. This is the reason a lot of people start treatments in the fall or winter in order to have stubble-free skin by summer! Having a tan can increase your risk of adverse reactions (burns!), since the laser may confuse the pigment in your skin for your hair’s root.
7. YOUR APPOINTMENT CAN TAKE ANYWHERE FROM 20 MINUTES TO AN HOUR
It all depends on the area you’re having treated. Underarms, upper lips and bikini lines tend to be quick treatments, but other areas like the hands, legs or back can take a little longer.
8. RESULTS MAY VARY
Patients should know laser hair reduction is a process that ideally should be customized to the body area and type of hair. For example, coarse hairs in the armpits or bikini may completely resolve over four to five visits. Similarly, fine or thin hairs on the upper lip or arms may take multiple treatments.
9. TELL YOUR DERMATOLOGIST ABOUT ANY MEDICATION YOU’RE TAKING
It’s very important to be honest with your dermatologist. Antibiotics are light-sensitive, so if you’re taking them, you could end up with burns during the treatment, which can be difficult to get rid of. We at Dermapuritys, ask before every session about any new medications our clients may have been prescribed since their last visit to avoid this.”
10. IT’S NOT JUST ONE SESSION
It’s not as simple as making one visit to the clinic and then coming out hair-free. It takes several sessions to get rid of all unwanted hair. This is because hair has a growth cycle with three different stages.
The number of sessions needed varies from person to person, but it’s usually between three and six.
