Frequently Asked Questions
Other things you need to know about this treatment.
The treatment area will be cleaned before the procedure. For some patients, a numbing gel is used. When only a tiny site needs to be treated, and the skin is extremely sensitive, numbing the area can help. A numbing gel often takes 30-60 minutes to start working.
The laser procedure will be performed in an area designed for that purpose. Safety glasses are required for everybody in the room during the process. The skin is stretched and then treated with a laser during the operation. Patients often compare the sensation of the laser pulses to that of a rubber band snapping on the skin or warm pinpricks.
With a laser, hair is vaporized, making it easy to remove. This generates odorous, whispy clouds of smoke that have a sulfur scent.
You should expect your treatment to last a few minutes to a few hours, depending on the size of the region being treated. Upper lip treatments are quick and easy. Treatments for big areas, such as the back or the legs, can take longer than an hour.
Most of the time, hair removal through laser doesn’t necessitate any recovery period. Your skin will be red and inflamed immediately following laser hair removal. Regardless, most individuals go back to their regular routines.
Stay as far away from the sun and tanning beds as possible in the weeks leading up to your surgery. Laser hair removal can be less successful and cause negative effects on skin tanned either naturally or artificially.
Two or three days before treatment, shave the treatment area. Otherwise, there might be a chance that it will not be successfully treated with laser hair removal. Avoid removing hair from the treated areas by waxing, tweezing, or plucking once treatment has begun.
Every patient should wear sun protection to lessen the likelihood of unwanted effects. What to do after laser hair removal:
- Keep your treated skin out of direct sunlight.
- Please refrain from using indoor tanning devices such as tanning beds, sun lamps, etc.
- It is important to adhere to your dermatologist’s aftercare instructions.
After receiving therapy, you should expect to see some redness and swelling. This can mimic the appearance of a light sunburn. A cool compress might alleviate the pain.
Results from treatment are typically noticeable right away. It could be more consistent from one person to the next regarding outcomes. The outcomes will vary depending on several factors, including the area treated, the type of laser utilized, your skin color, and your hair color. After the first session, you should anticipate a 10–25% reduction in hair.
In most cases, two to six laser sessions are necessary to eradicate the hair permanently. Several months, sometimes years may pass after a patient has completed therapy before new hair grows back in the targeted area. There is typically less hair after hair regrowth.
Patients typically have long-term hair loss (months to years). Some of the hair will grow back, and eventually, it will be less obvious. A patient may require follow-up laser sessions to maintain the area permanently hair-free.
This varies greatly depending on the individual sufferer. A series of laser treatments are typically necessary to remove hair permanently. Most people only need laser hair removal treatment once every four to six weeks. Your dermatologist will let you know when it is time for another treatment.
Hair regrows in the majority of patients. A dermatologist can advise how often you can safely have laser treatment to preserve your results.
Minor side effects often only linger for a few days; most people experience only one or two of them. These negative effects can include the following:
When conducted by a dermatologist or someone else directly under their supervision, laser hair removal has few other potential side effects. These and other probable negative effects have been identified in previous studies:
- Outbreaks of cold sores
- Variations in skin tone (both lighter and darker)
Skin tone usually returns to normal after some time has passed. Yet, there are alterations to skin tone that cannot be undone. This is why it’s crucial to consult a dermatologist who is experienced with laser treatments and knows the skin inside and out.
Remember to adhere to your dermatologist’s recommendations as well. To lessen the likelihood of unpleasant reactions, it’s important to follow all pre- and post-treatment instructions.
