Unwanted facial and body hair can be irritating and can even be a cause of embarrassment, particularly for women. Waxing or shaving is always an option, but the hair grows back pretty quickly. Fortunately, there is an alternative to regular shaving and waxing available in the form of laser hair removal.
A good Skin Doctor in Chandigarh can get rid of the unwanted hair on your face and body using laser treatment. The lasers damage the hair follicles severely, which inhibits hair growth in the region to a great extent.
There are four things you need to be aware of before opting for laser hair removal in Chandigarh.
Requires Multiple Sessions
Hair removal is not a one-time process. Multiple treatments are often required and the treatment sessions need to be spaced at least a month apart. Lasers can affect your hair only if it is in the growth phase. If it is in the resting or falling out phase, the treatment is of little use. So, the treatment has to be timed accordingly.
No Pain or Side Effects
Laser hair removal is not painful – nor does it have any side effects. The treated region might be red and tender for a while, but you are not likely to develop any sort of complications after the treatment.
The laser pulses only target and destroy the hair follicles, leaving the skin cells completely unharmed. The whole process is completely safe, irrespective of the body part being treated.
Long Term Results
The follicles that fully absorb the laser pulses will be destroyed completely and will not grow back. Some follicles could absorb the pulses partially and go dormant for a while. After some time, they might grow back, but these hairs are generally a lot finer and can be easily removed in the subsequent sessions.
