Who needs Laser Hair Reduction treatment in Delhi?

Laser Hair Reduction(LHR) can be done for both medical and aesthetic indications. The medical indications for LHR are:

  • Hirsutism
  • Hypertrichosis
  • Pilonidal sinus
  • Acne Keloidalis Nuchae
  • Ingrown Hairs
  • Pseudofolliculitis barbae

However, LHR can be done for aesthetic reasons alone. It is a much more effective & long term solution for getting rid of unwanted hair on any part of the body: face, neck, chest, back, arms, legs, underarms or bikini area. A great number of males are also opting Laser hair reduction in Delhi for beard reshaping, unibrow treatment, removal of unwanted hair from ear pinna as well as full body laser hair removal.

How does Laser remove hair/ what is the mechanism of action of Laser hair reduction?

Lasers in dermatology work on the principle of ‘Selective Photothermolysis’. In Laser hair reduction, the melanin pigment present in the hair works as the chromophore and absorbs light between 600-1200 nm. The laser light is absorbed by the melanin in the hair and it gets converted to heat. This heat destroys the growing cells in the hair follicle.

Which is the correct term ‘ Permanent Laser Hair Removal’ or ‘Long term Hair Reduction’?

The correct term is ‘Long term hair reduction’. Laser technology is the best way to get rid of unwanted hair and no other hair removal method matches the results of laser hair reduction.
We can only achieve approximately 70-80% reduction in hair growth in an area even after completing the required number of LHR sessions.
In patients who have or develop hormonal imbalance later, there can be some regrowth of hair in areas which had achieved good reduction earlier.

  • What is the importance of consultation with a dermatologist before starting Laser Hair Reduction treatment in Delhi?

    Laser hair reduction should always be done under the supervision of an experienced dermatologist. Prior to starting the treatment sessions, our dermatologists take a detailed history to find out if there is any medical reason for excess hair and also rule out any contra-indications for laser treatment. Certain blood investigations and ultrasound may also be suggested by the doctor, if required. They also help to clear any doubts which you might have about LHR & guide you regarding the precautions and aftercare required with this treatment.
  • What is the minimum age to start Laser hair reduction treatment in Delhi?

    The minimum age to start Laser hair reduction at Satya Skin & Hair Clinic in Delhi is 15 years.

  • Why do we need repeat sessions of Laser Hair Reduction Treatment in Delhi?

    The hair follicle is sensitive to LHR only during the anagen/ growth phase of the hair cycle. As all hairs are not in the anagen phase of the hair cycle at the same time, we need repeat sessions to target all the hairs.

  • What is the number of sessions required for Laser Hair Reduction?

    An average of 8 sessions is required for effective hair reduction by laser. Some body areas respond faster while other areas may respond at a slower pace. Patients with underlying hormonal imbalance like PCOS may need a higher number of sessions.

  • What is the gap between Laser Hair reduction treatment sessions?

    A session of Laser hair reduction is needed every 4-6 weeks for the initial 4-5 sessions. Later, this gap usually increases to once in 8-10 weeks in most patients. The repeat session is done only when the patient experiences regrowth of hair in the treated areas.

  • How long does the effect of Laser hair reduction treatment last?

    The effect of Laser hair reduction may last for a few months or few years or it may last lifelong. The results vary in different individuals and also vary with different areas of the body treated. Females with hirsutism and PCOS may need maintenance sessions once in 3-6 months even after completing the initial regular monthly sessions of LHR.

  • Is Laser hair reduction a safe treatment?

    The laser technologies used in hair reduction are approved by USFDA, so there is no risk from the laser itself. But you have to be sure that the person who is doing your laser hair removal treatment has appropriate training and expertise to handle the laser machine. It is always safer to get Laser hair removal at a dermatologist’s clinic rather than going to a salon or spa.

  • What are the possible side effects of laser hair removal treatment?

    The most common side effects expected after an LHR session is mild redness, swelling and discomfort of the treated area. This usually subsides in less than 24 hours. Bacterial infection of hair roots called folliculitis might occur in a few patients if proper hygiene is not maintained during the treatment or by the patient after the treatment. A very less common side effect which might occur is burning or blistering of the treated area leading to pigmentary changes and/or scarring. This occurs only if incorrect parameters are chosen for the treatment. Paradoxical hypertrichosis may occur in a few patients after LHR using IPL technology.

  • When should an LHR treatment be avoided?

    Laser hair removal treatment sessions should be avoided in following conditions:
    Pregnancy Active infections in the areas to be treated
    Skin disease like psoriasis, lichen planus, vitiligo
    If the area to be treated has a tattoo
    Unrealistic expectations of the patient
    Recent tan or sunburn of the area to be treated
    Patient is taking photosensitizing or immunosuppressive medicines
    Keloidal tendency in the patient
    Personal or family history of skin cancer

  • What is the downtime of Laser hair removal treatment?

    Laser hair reduction has practically no downtime, a few patients may have mild redness and swelling which usually subsides in less than 24 hours.

  • Is the Laser hair removal treatment painful?

    Laser hair removal treatment is not painful at all, you may only feel some heat during the treatment. The handpiece of the laser machine which comes in contact with the skin has an inbuilt cooling mechanism so that the treatment becomes a very comfortable and pain free experience.

  • What is the duration of one session of laser hair reduction in Delhi?

    The duration of a session depends on the area to be treated, a small area like upper lip may take only 5 minutes while full body laser hair removal may need upto 3 hours.

  • Which areas of the body can be treated by laser hair reduction?

    Laser hair reduction can be done for any part of the body from where you would like to get rid of hair permanently. A large number of patients now opt for full body laser hair removal in Delhi. Beard reshaping by Laser and unibrow/ monobrow treatment is very common treatment sought by our male clients. Laser hair reduction for bikini area and laser hair reduction for underarms are also becoming increasingly popular in Delhi.

  • Is laser hair reduction effective on all types of hair?

    A hair needs to have melanin pigment for a laser to work on it. Laser hair reduction works best on dark, coarse hair as these have the highest amount of melanin. White hair, recently bleached hair, very fine light hair (peach fuzz) may not respond to lasers.

  • Is the radiation from a laser harmful?

    Lasers used for hair reduction do not emit any harmful ionizing rays like X-rays or UV rays. The laser light is proven to be safe, the only precaution is to use protective eyewear by both patient and the therapist.
