Laser hair removal in Lahore is the most commonly demanded cosmetic procedure and is being employed by a number of people who are not satisfied by the other temporary hair removal techniques such as shaving, waxing and tweezing. It is a process in which laser beams are bombarded on the hairs, the hair follicles absorb these beams and as a result, the hair dies. Lasers are useful for removing hairs from the face, arms, legs, underarms and bikini area. The major benefit of this technique is that the laser removes the darker, coarse hairs leaving the surrounding skin undamaged. A single beam targets a wide range of areas within no time. It is observed that small areas such as the upper lips are treated in 15 to 20 minutes whereas larger areas such as legs or back usually take an hour or less. The further growth of hair stops completely after 6 to 8 sessions. Individuals having lighter skin tones and darker hairs, people looking for alternatives to other hair removal procedures such as waxing and shaving or the people who desire to remove hairs at different areas so that they get a tidy look, often consider laser hair removal technique.
Laser hair removal is a complete medical procedure and requires proper training of the technical staff. The doctor must be well skilled and the patient should check the credentials of his doctor before going for the procedure. Laser beam focuses on the roots of the hairs for removal so the person who is planning to go for this technique should not use other procedures for hair removing, such as waxing or plucking, at least 2 weeks prior to this process because waxing or threading often remove the roots of hairs temporarily. Moreover, it is strictly prohibited to go under sun 2 to 4 weeks before and after the procedure because it may lead to serious complications as the hairs protect our skin from UVA and UVB radiations of the sun.

He will then tell you about the treatment plan and recovery rate with underlying risk factors. On the day of treatment, the hairs which will go through the laser, will be trimmed a few millimeters. Then a cool numbing gel will be applied on the desired area to reduce the sting of laser. The intensity of the laser is adjusted depending upon the area, the color of skin tone and the number of hairs. The physician as well as the patient will have to wear special protective goggles in order to save the eyes from the laser.
