What is it about?

Laser hair removal uses Laser and light-based technology to reduce and
in some cases eliminate unwanted body hairs. The procedure involves
passing a laser beam through the skin to an individual hair follicle.
The intense heat of the laser damages the hair follicle, resulting in
reduction of the number of hairs and the quality of hair. The hair will
become less noticeable, finer, and possibly lighter. The degree of hair
reduction depends on the number of treatments.

The Most Important Thing to Look Out For in Your Surgeon.

Laser hair removal is a common cosmetic procedure. You would find
lots of practitioners in the industry willing to undertake your case
however, it is important that you only engage the services of board
certified plastic surgeons, and those with high reputational image and
client satisfaction.
There are a few other points to note:

Experience. The years of experience and number of surgeries the
surgeon has performed can help you determine if they are the
right fit for you.

Specialty. Are they specialist in this area of surgery or is the
procedure one of many they can handle? Answers to these
questions can help you filter your search.

Repuscore. The repuscore is the overall rating of the surgeon or
surgical practice on our platform. The score collates the ratings
under different metrics and assign a commiserate score to the
surgeon or surgical practice based on client reviews and
satisfaction surveys.

What to Expect

Hair reduction and body hair removal typically requires the use of non-
ablative lasers. Before the procedure, you'll be fitted with special
goggles to protect your eyes from the laser beam. A topical anesthetic
may be applied to your skin to reduce any discomfort during treatment.
The duration of the procedure may last between a few minutes and a
couple of hours. For instance, treating a small area, such as the upper
lip, may take only a few minutes while treating a larger area, such as
the back, can take several hours.
You surgeon would likely use any of the under listed lasers for your
procedure:

Ruby Laser

Alexandrite Laser (alexandrite laser hair removal)

Diode Laser (diode laser hair removal)

Long pulse Nd:Yag laser (Nd Yag laser hair removal)

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Devices (IPL hair removal)
A laser hair treatment is not a one-off procedure. Results vary from
person to person and hair regrowth is very possible. For best results,
you may need to come in a couple of times, say between 4 – 6 sessions
over a period.

hours after the procedure, but that should clear out within 2 days. You
may also experience a bit of crustiness around the area on your skin but
that as well won’t last for long.
Take adequate precautions when going under sunlight. Use a sunscreen
always. Avoid saunas for a few weeks and leave out the perfumes and
deodorants too.
You should be able to get back to normal in less than 4 weeks.
