More About Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is a cosmetic procedure of removing unwanted hair by means of a laser beam. Highly concentrated light is directed into the follicles of the hair. The pigments in the follicles soak up the light which then results in destroying the hair. It may require multiple sessions with certain period of gaps until the hair stops growing.

The most common areas of hair removal in the body are – face, shoulders, chest, arms, underarms, legs, and bikini area. Any part of the body with unwanted hair can also be treated with laser. 

Laser hair removal is not permanent as some may assume but, it reduces the number of unwanted hair. Once the hair follicles are treated with light beams, they stay in a state of dormancy for a long time and when the hair grows back, it becomes lighter, fewer, and finer.

It is estimated that 10 - 25% of your hair will be reduced after the initial session and will eventually reduce.  It takes longer for the hair to grow back unlike waxing and, shaving.

Types of Laser hair removal machine

Some of the most common types are listed below:

  • IPL hair remover – good for lighter skin and darker hair targeting on the pigment of the hair follicle
  • Nd:YAG Laser – best for dark skin as it has the longest wavelengths among the other lasers. This means it can destroy hair from the very bottom of the shaft
  • Alexandrite Laser – suitable for a wide range of skin, best for olive skin and the quickest method among all, owing to its increased spot size and repetition rate
  • Diode Laser – best for fair to medium skin, emitting shorter and longer wavelengths with good absorption of melanin
  • Ruby Laser – it has a higher melanin absorption rate making it most suitable for very fair skin with fine or light hair



  • Consult with a doctor based on experience in hair removal, training and certification, and your comfort level 
  • Your doctor will discuss the best option for you
  • During your initial consultation, discuss your cosmetic goals with your doctor
  • Inform your doctor of all previous surgeries and/or medical history
  • Inform your doctor of all allergies and current medications
