Is laser hair removal really permanent?
Laser hair removal is permanent hair removal. That is to say, it allows the eradication of hairs, but it does not prevent the growth of new fine and clear hairs after a few years. Of course, these new hairs remain isolated: the patient will never regain his original hair.
Can I do laser hair removal on my black skin?
Laser hair removal is suitable for all skin colors. For dark skin, mixed and black, the laser operator will choose the ND Yag laser which is specially designed for dark skin naturally. It makes it possible to differentiate between the melanin of the hair and that of the skin and thus avoid any skin burn.
Is it possible to pluck the hairs without removing everything?
It is quite possible to do laser hair removal to thin out the hair. This request mainly concerns men who wish to thin out their hairiness in the torso, pubic area or beard. It also happens that women want to thin the bikini area to avoid, for example, a radical change between the shaved area (on the sides) and the area where there is hair. The laserist will lower the energy of the laser as the sessions progress in order to thin out and not eradicate the hair.
Can I laser hair removal if I am blonde?

Is laser hair removal painful?
Laser hair removal is not really painful, but the perception of pain is unique to everyone. We feel a tingling with each impact of the laser. Some areas are more sensitive than others: the very indented or even full bikini line or the inter-buttock groove are very sensitive areas while the legs are quite bearable areas. The laser operator will apply an anesthetic cream concentrated in lidocaine to improve patient comfort. It is important to note that the more “painful” the laser, the more effective it will be.
What should I do before and after a laser hair removal session?
The area to be depilated must be shaved at least 1 day before the epilation session in order to avoid any burns. Indeed, the hair burns thanks to the laser, which can cause burns on contact with the skin. Apart from the beard in men, face shaving is not necessary because it is fluff. It is important to note that it is important not to wax or tweezers before the session because you have to keep the bulb to destroy. Avoid tanning for at least 2 to 3 weeks and any photosensitizing treatment before and after the session to avoid skin burns. It is strongly recommended to put on sunscreen at least 1 to 2 weeks after the session.
Are there any side effects?
The side effects are variable: the skin may have redness, irritation or swelling more or less strong after a session, but this is not mandatory.
How many sessions will I be able to eradicate my hair?
It depends on the nature of the hairs and the area of hair removal. It takes an average of 5 to 6 sessions to remove black hair. It is therefore necessary to count on average 6 to 7 months of hair removal laser treatment in delhi with approximately 1 month interval between two sessions. More sessions should be considered for lighter, finer hairs as well as for down: on average 7 to 8 sessions or more.
How long does a session last?
It depends on the area to be waxed: it varies from 2 minutes for the upper lips to approximately 1 hour for the entire legs.
What machines are used in laser hair removal?
Alexandrite will be used for white skin and the Nd yag laser for dark skin. They are the two most famous and used machines in the world. The Nd yag laser works differently because it makes the difference between the melanin of the hair and the skin so as not to burn it. In addition, it has a higher wavelength. The Ter cabinet has both techniques.
What is the difference between laser hair removal and pulsed light?
Laser hair removal is more effective than pulsed light. The goal of these two methods is the same: to burn the hair. But the efficiency is different: the laser uses a very narrow wave that is well focused on the area, while the pulsed light uses a much wider and less intense wave. Thus its effectiveness is less important and the hairs may grow back after 3 to 4 years.
Should I use an anesthetic cream to prepare the skin for laser hair removal?
It all depends on the treatment surface and the area. These ointments work by penetrating through the skin until they reach the bloodstream. Thus, if these creams can be applied without risk to small areas (bathing suits, upper lip, etc.), application to large areas would lead to an excessive concentration of anesthetic in the blood. This is the reason why the doctors at the Esthétical medical center only use numbing creams on small areas .
What are the reactions or undesirable effects after permanent hair removal?
Small papules may appear after laser hair removal treatment, corresponding to the inflammatory reaction of the destruction of the bulb. They will be present for one to two hours and then disappear.
Erythema will almost always be present after laser hair removal and can last for 24 to 48 hours.
You will apply a very moisturizing cream to the treated areas for a few days. There should be no scabs or blisters observed after a laser hair removal session.
Your skin will have been previously tested on a small area , so there is very little chance that these reactions will occur. However, if this is the case, we recommend that you call your doctor for a quick check-up.
