Laser Hair Removal
Diode laser hair removal is a popular method of removing unwanted hair. It works by directing a concentrated beam of light at the pigment in your hair follicles, which then absorbs the light and converts it into heat that destroys the follicle, preventing future hair growth. This method is considered one of the most effective and safe methods for long-term hair reduction.
One of the main advantages of diode laser hair removal is that it can be used on all skin types, from very light to very dark. However, it may require multiple sessions to achieve desired results as it only affects actively growing hairs, and not all hairs are in this phase at the same time. The number of sessions required varies depending on factors such as the thickness and color of your hair, as well as your skin type.
Despite its effectiveness, like any other cosmetic procedure, it also comes with potential risks and side effects such as skin irritation or changes in skin color. Therefore, it’s crucial to have a professional consultation before starting treatment to ensure it’s suitable for you.

Why do I need laser hair removal for more than 1 session?
There are three phases to hair growth, and hair removal treatments are only effective during the anagen phase (the growing phase of hair), which typically involves 20% of the hair at a time.
Thus, in a month, the following sessions will cover different topics. A shorter treatment interval might not produce faster outcomes.
If you adhere to the treatment plan, you should anticipate a minimum of 80–90% reduction in the amount of hair in the treated area; in the rare instances where hair does grow back, it will typically be lighter and finer and easier to manage.
Am I suitable for laser hair removal if I have ingrown hair?
Yes, you are suitable for laser hair removal even if you have ingrown hairs. In fact, laser hair removal can be an effective solution to deal with this issue. The procedure works by targeting the pigment in your hair follicles, which causes them to fall out and discourages further growth. This process helps reduce the occurrence of ingrown hairs as it eliminates the hair that could potentially become trapped beneath the skin.
However, it’s important to consult with a professional before proceeding with laser hair removal treatment. They will assess your skin and hair type to determine whether you’re a good candidate for the procedure. It’s also essential to ensure that there are no active infections or inflammations in the area where you want to remove hair, as these conditions may need to be treated first before undergoing laser therapy.

Shaving helps ensure that the laser energy is directed straight to the root of the problem.
However, you should only shave, not wax or pluck, as these methods remove the hair from the root which is necessary for effective treatment.
