Excessive hair growth in any body part may not be aesthetically pleasing for anyone. Hence the practice of hair removal has become an inevitable part of personal hygiene for both men and women. PCOS, hormonal imbalance, Cushing’s syndrome, genes, medication, etc are the common causes for excessive hair growth. It is generally observed that as we age, the hairs grow at undesirable locations. This problem affects people of different age groups and can stay lifelong. Laser hair removal is the long-term and painless solution for this excessive hair growth.
Hair growth originates in the follicles. This treatment uses highly concentrated light (laser) to penetrate the hair follicles and arrest its growth. The intense heat from the laser beam damages the hair follicles, reducing the amount and thickness of hair as well as preventing the future growth. Laser hair removal is a safe and effective procedure to get rid of unwanted body hairs. All body parts including the chin, upper lip, cheeks, legs, arms and underarms can be treated.

By removing hair with laser systems, there are very rare cases of either hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation of the skin, and may temporarily persist for months.

Who shouldn’t do laser hair removal?
People with light skin and hair – The nature of your hair and skin can decide the laser hair removal treatment result. There are machines suitable for specific skin types. If you have dark skin, you might be advised to choose Nd-YAG laser instead of others, as it causes less damage to your skin.
People with skin conditions
In general, laser treatments are not recommended for people with skin disease or infection. The medications you take for your skin conditions, like isotretinoin, could make you photosensitive. You should inform your doctor or physician before the laser hair removal treatment to make certain that you are suitable for the treatment or not.
Skin types prone to pigmentation
The most common side effects include pigment changes, skin irritation or discoloration. If your skin gets easily pigmented then you might not be advised to take laser hair removal treatment. In order to prevent this, you should ask your doctor about the complications and risks of the treatment before choosing to perform the procedure. Your doctor might suggest a test to observe how your skin reacts to the treatment.
People who are pregnant
It is generally advised to avoid laser hair removal treatment if you are pregnant because the laser or chemicals applied to your skin during treatment can affect the fetus. Many women might have a problem with hair growth during pregnancy because of the increase in hormones, but no laser treatments are recommended for pregnant people.
