Laser hair removal
Laser hair removal is a simple, effective treatment option for unwanted hair. Laser hair removal targets melanin, or pigment, in the hair roots and destroys the hair follicle. The laser leaves no marks on the skin and it can be used on almost any skin type (including white-haired patients).
How Does laser Procedure Work
The targeted region will be cleansed before therapy begins. While many people do not require it, a topical anaesthetic may be administered to the region to make you comfortable. The laser is shot, the laser operator will keep your skin taut. The laser beam will penetrate your skin and reach the microscopic follicles where hair growth begins.
After the procedure
After you’ve had laser hair removal, you may experience redness and swelling. This skin response may last for several hours to a few days after treatment. The redness is due to the possibility that your body is producing excess skin cells to make the new hair follicle, which has been destroyed by the laser. This can happen at any time during treatment, but it typically kicks in about an hour or two following treatment. Ice applied to the area of redness will help reduce discomfort as it cools your skin.

Laser Hair Removal Benefits for Your Skin
LHR has been a big hit with many people over the years because it can help to remove unwanted hair and achieve smooth skin. It works by targeting the hairs in your skin and giving them no choice but to die off. This method generally reduces ingrown or razor bumps and rashes, as well as improves your overall appearance.
Laser hair removal can cause irritation to the skin and temporary reddening (reddening of the skin), pain, and edema (swelling of the blood vessels). You may also see darkening of your skin or lightening of your skin color. These modifications might be temporary or permanent. Those who do not prevent sun exposure before or after treatment, as well as those with darker skin, are more likely to experience skin whitening.
A message from London Laser
Laser hair removal is a safe, efficient way to get rid of unwanted body hair. It works by employing laser energy delivered through a hand-held device. Laser energy destroys the dermal layer of the skin, which in turn is replaced by new cells that are smaller than those destroyed by the laser (this process is called “ablation”). This technique can ideally accomplish around 80 percent or greater reduction of unwanted hair on the body by ablating only pigment cells and not actual follicles. However, there are other side effects associated with this method like: burning sensation, pain at the treatment sites as well as after several weeks or months, scars or marks on the treated areas.
