Permanent Hair Reduction

You can now bid goodbye to messy waxing appointments, razor burns, ingrown hair and painful tweezing. Because the Laser Hair Reduction procedure has a lot to offer!

Laser Hair Reduction is undoubtedly an effective method of removing unwanted hair which is quickly becoming popular. LASER stands for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. Here, the light is amplified or made stronger to focus on the target area to effectively damage the hair follicles. This minimizes the speed of hair growth. The procedure takes a few sessions to show actual results. It is a precise procedure that needs care and precautions but comes with excellent results. The procedure can remove hair from any part of the body whether it is the face, legs, arms, underarms, bikini area, back or full body. At Dr. Titoria's Skin, Hair, Laser, Cosmetic Clinic you can have a great treatment experience as the procedures are carried out by laser specialists under the guidance of Dr. Satish Titoria.  He is a highly-skilled dermatologist and skin specialist in Noida. 

Types of Lasers

There are multiple hair removal lasers available. The most common ones are Ruby, Alexandrite, Nd-Yag, Diode, and IPL. They have their own advantages depending on the skin color, body size, and thickness of the skin. They act by targeting the melanin of the hair.

 

1. Ruby Laser

This is the oldest laser that uses 694nm. It acts best on thin hair over fair skin. It causes only minimal pain but is time taking. Hence, it is better for smaller areas. This technology has become almost outdated.

 

2. Alexandrite Laser

It works at 755 nm and acts best on thick coarse hair. It is the fastest available laser for hair removal but causes pain. It can be used for larger areas as it is fast but the machine should incorporate an inbuilt cooling system to reduce the pain.

 

3. Diode Laser

It works at 810 nm and is a newer laser. Because of the longer wavelength, it penetrates deeper and is better for dark thick hair. Hence, it is preferred for men.

 

4. Nd-Yag Laser

This laser works at 1064nm and has multiple uses. The long pulse Nd-Yag is used for hair removal while the Q switched type is used for pigment and tattoo removal. It is safe for all kinds of skin color and is very popular. Variations by using carbon powders application for the treatment site increase the efficacy.

 

5. IPL

IPL is essentially not a laser and stands for Intense Pulsed Light. Its mechanism is similar to the lasers but works at a broad range of wavelengths spectrum. Hence, using filters of different wavelengths gives an advantage of using it for various indications, unlike the lasers. But the efficacy of IPL is not comparable to the popular lasers available in recent times.

Laser hair reduction is for men as well

Not only women but laser hair reduction procedure is becoming very popular amongst men. Some men are not very comfortable with excess hair on shoulders, back, chest, stomach, or the entire body. Also, some men feel hygienic and relieved to have thinner hair. The procedure helps men to reduce ingrown hair. Grooming the facial hair i.e. beard shaping also becomes easier.
