Laser hair removal is accomplished by passing a pulsating beam of light through the skin layers and directly into the hair follicle. The light beam’s heat then destroys the hair follicles and weakens the hair, which eventually falls out.
When it comes to getting rid of unwanted facial hair for good, we recommend laser hair removal in Mumbai with celebrity Dermatologist Dr Niketa Sonavane.
Do I need to do anything prior to my treatment?
Before your treatment, you should avoid the sun for seven days, which means applying sunscreen and avoiding sun exposure; avoid any physical activity that raises your body temperature for at least two hours before your appointment; and if you’re taking prescription medication and want to know whether it will affect your photosensitivity, consult with your doctor.
Is there a time limit for appointments?
Treatments for facial hair removal can take anywhere from five minutes to ten minutes, depending on the size of the treated area.
What happens after the treatment?
Most people will notice some redness and swelling after treatment, which is similar to a mild sunburn. An anti-inflammatory topical cream can help alleviate any inflammation that persists even after treatment has ended.
Facial hair may start to fall out or disappear after a few days, but if you shave frequently, the loss of hair may not be noticeable. You can speed up the shedding process by exfoliating the area 12 hours or more after your hair removal appointment. This will help prevent ingrown hairs.
Is the effect long-lasting?
Because the lasers used by Ambrosia Aesthetics destroy the follicles and roots of the hair, they guarantee permanent removal of unwanted facial hair.
How can I get the most out of my treatment?
The best way to get the most out of your laser treatment is to follow the directions and any additional instructions provided by your dermatologist.
As your body’s reaction to the treatment and your facial hair growth progress, it’s important to keep your laser nurse informed of any changes so they can adjust your treatment settings and intervals to ensure the best results for all of your treatments.
What is the treatment’s possible side effects?
Laser hair removal treatments have few side effects, but if the treatment is not done correctly, the skin can become permanently discoloured. Hyperpigmentation, prolonged redness or swelling, histamine reactions or blistering are all signs that you should seek treatment right away if you experience any of these side effects.
The most common cause of these side effects is if a patient fails to disclose prior sun exposure. Having an adverse reaction to laser treatment can be greatly reduced by being completely honest with your laser technician.
