Hair on the face ruining your special moments? Not anymore!
Laser Hair removal is a process/treatment where lasers are used to eliminate unwanted hair from the face.
The procedure can be availed on other body parts such as the bikini area, legs, arm pits. On the face, it’s primarily chin, around mouth and cheeks.
Dr. Vidushi Singal- the best dermatologist in Punjab clears the myth regarding the use of laser hair removal treatment only suitable for lighter skin and dark hair.
She further adds that the latest technology and advancement in medical science has made it possible for people with every skin tone to undergo laser surgery to get rid of those pesky hair.
How many sessions are required?
The patients would need to undergo 4 – 6 sessions that are spaced around a month apart for the complete and permanent removal of hair on the face. Exceptions are always there.
Consulting a dermatologist near you would help you exactly understand the situation and devise the best possible treatment for you.
Face hair removal by lasers may not be covered under medical insurance plans as it is an elective cosmetic procedure.
How does the treatment works?
Dr. Vidushi Singal- the well-known specialist in Laser Hair Removal in Ludhiana/ Moga/ Mullanpur shares that a beam of light through laser would be targeted into the hair follicle.
This light is absorbed by the melanin pigment present in the skin and gets converted into heat. This heat eventually damages the hair follicle.
The hair will vaporize. Continuous sessions for laser treatment are required to ensure hair does not grow back.
Laser hair removal treatment is perfectly suited in case you have in-grown hair.
At first, it may look like an expensive option but if you compare it with the amount spent on waxing, shaving etc, it would be worth the money spent in the longer run.
