Laser Hair Removal in Chandigarh

Looking for an effective treatment to get rid of dark and thick hair from your face and body? Laser hair removal in Chandigarh by laser expert Dr. Ishaa Junejaa can help to get a flawless smooth hair free skin.

Laser hair removal is one of the most popular aesthetic procedures involving the use of laser beams to remove undesirable hair on the face or body.

How does Laser Hair Removal Work?

The laser beams target the melanin of the unwanted hair follicles. The heat generated from the laser gets absorbed by the melanin of the targeted hair to thermally destroy the hair follicles. As a result, hair production is disabled for a variable time and further hair growth as well as the capacity of hair to regrow is delayed or inhibited.

The hair growth cycle involves different stages: anagen (growing phase), catagen (transition phase), telogen (resting phase), and exogen (shedding phase). The lasers work only on the hair that is actively growing at the time of the treatment. That is why there is a need for multiple laser sessions to be able to effectively remove the majority of unwelcomed hair from the targeted site.

Benefits of Laser Hair Removal Procedure

There are significant benefits associated with laser hair removal, including:

  • In contrast to other hair removal methods, such as shaving and waxing, which require frequent maintenance, laser hair removal can provide long-lasting or permanent results.
  • Targeting hair follicles with precision, laser hair removal can effectively remove unwanted hair without damaging the surrounding skin.
  • Although there may be some discomfort during the procedure, laser hair removal is typically less painful than other methods, such as waxing.
  • As laser hair removal targets multiple hair follicles simultaneously, it can be a time-saving alternative to other hair removal techniques that require multiple sessions.
  •  Laser hair removal can minimise the risk of ingrown hairs, a common issue with other hair removal methods.
  • Laser hair removal can enhance the quality of the skin in the treated area by reducing the appearance of pores, fine lines, and wrinkles.
  • Laser hair removal is safe and effective for a wide variety of skin types and hair colours, including those with darker skin tones.

While laser hair removal is generally safe, it is essential to choose a reputable provider like Dr. Ishaa Junejaa Aesthetics. The clinic is renowned for providing the best laser hair removal in Chandigarh, and patients are advised to follow their instructions carefully to minimise risks and side effects.

Benefits of Laser Hair Removal Procedure

Pre-Procedure Care

  • Avoid sun tanning or damaging the skin by avoiding direct sunlight exposure for at least 4-6 weeks beforehand.
  • Shave the area to be treated 24 hours before the treatment. Avoid waxing/plucking/epilating/ bleaching at least 2-4 weeks prior to the treatment and even after the treatment. The hair roots need to be present at the time of the treatment to ensure effective results.
  • On the day of the treatment, avoid the use of makeup, lotion, or deodorant on the treatment site.
  • Avoid excessive alcohol intake for 24 hours before the treatment.
  • Avoid intake of any blood thinners.

What happens during the Laser Hair Removal procedure?

A laser hair removal session is an outpatient procedure whose time frame depends upon the size of the area being treated. Before starting with the treatment, the patient is asked to wear special goggles for eye protection from laser light.
During the procedure, a laser doctor presses a hand-held laser device to the skin to be treated and activates it. Upon activation, the laser beam passes through the skin to reach the hair follicles and destroy them by heat. At this time, slight discomfort is expected to be experienced by the patient.

What to Expect after the Laser Hair Removal Session?

A significant reduction can be expected in hair growth. Single hair follicles that are in the active growth phase can be permanently removed while other hair follicles continue to grow at a reduced pace. The hair that regrows is usually lighter and thinner.   
The treatment doesn’t require any real downtime. Immediately following the treatment, the skin may become swollen and red. Despite this, most patients can resume their daily routine activities. The dead hair starts shedding normally within 5 to 30 days from the date of the treatment.

Aftercare Advice

  • Apply ointments or skincare products only that are advised or allowed by the skin specialist.
  • Apply cold compresses, if the skin feels sunburnt or sensitive, and if it is crusting, apply a topical antibiotic.
  • Daily wear broad-spectrum sunscreens of minimum SPF 30 and avoid direct sun exposure of the treated skin whenever stepping out in the daytime.
  • Keep the treated skin free of lotions, deodorant, and moisturiser for the initial 24 hours.
  • Gently cleanse the treated skin with mild soap. After washing, the skin must be pat dried and not rubbed for the first 48 hours.
  • Exfoliate the treated anywhere within 5-30 days of the treatment to speed up the hair shedding. 

Frequently Asked Questions

Is laser treatment safe?

Yes, the laser technology used for hair removal/reduction is FDA-cleared and 100% safe.

What types of lasers are used to get rid of undesirable hair?

Alexandrite laser and Diode laser are two non-ablative laser types mostly used for hair removal. Alexandrite laser makes use of a 775 nm wavelength of light to gently and effectively remove the superficial hair of light-skinned people and ensures permanent results. Thanks to its range and adaptability. It’s widely considered to be the safest and most effective laser type for hair removal. Diode laser also offers a gentle touch, removing the hair effectively while protecting the skin. It projects the light at a wavelength of around 810nm, hence it can penetrate much deeper into the skin and allow superior melanin absorption. Dark-skinned people with coarse hair benefit from this laser. It is popular for its speed and efficacy.

Is Laser Hair Removal a permanent solution?

Laser hair removal in Chandigarh helps significantly reduce unwanted hair by up to 70%. With repeated sessions, when all targeted growing hair falls out, one can achieve smooth, hair-free skin which can stay the same for months or years.

Does it hurt?

Most patients describe laser hair removal treatment to cause tolerable pain or discomfort of the same intensity as a hot rubber band snapped against the skin. Compared to waxing, it is less hurtful.

Nowadays, advanced laser devices are used for laser hair removal which are equipped with dynamic cooling devices ensuring safer and more comfortable treatment.

How many laser sessions are required to remove unwanted hair?

The unwanted hair can be removed fully after 4-6 laser therapy sessions. The number of sessions depends upon the area being treated. These sessions must be performed at intervals of 4-6 weeks.

For full hair removal and the best-desired results lasting for several months, the patient needs to wait for the completion of 5-6 laser sessions.

How long will the effects of laser hair removal last?

Most patients remain hairless and flaunt their hair-free skin for months or even years. Even if there is regrowth of hair, usually it’s less noticeable. To enjoy hair-free skin for a lifetime, the patients need to undergo maintenance laser sessions after every 6-12 months.
