Laser Hair Removal In Nagpur

Laser hair removal uses intense, pulsating beams of laser light to remove unwanted hair from the face, underarms, back, legs and bikini area. The laser targets the melanin, or pigment, within the hair shaft and damages the follicle, which helps to prevent future hair growth. Inflamed and bumpy skin caused by pilus is commonly improved following treatment.

Laser hair removal is used on patients of nearly all skin types, although it’s simplest for those who have light skin and dark hair. White, blond or gray hair usually can not be removed with laser hair removal since there’s no pigment within the hair for the laser to focus on.

Although laser hair removal effectively slows hair growth, it does not guarantee permanent hair removal. Several treatments are usually required to remove hair. For best results, you may need at least six treatments spaced a number of weeks apart. Periodic maintenance treatments may also be needed.

Laser hair removal has become so popular that it is often performed in non-medical settings, such as salons and spas. It is important to choose a board-certified doctor who is trained in laser hair removal to oversee the treatment.

How long does laser hair removal last?

Laser hair removal is a long-lasting form of hair removal that damages or destroys the hair follicle. However, the hair may regrow, particularly if the follicle is damaged and not destroyed during the laser hair removal procedure. For this reason, many doctors now refer to laser hair removal as long-term hair removal rather than permanent hair removal. Most patients remain hair-free for months or even years. When some of the hair regrows, it will likely be less noticeable. To keep the area free of hair, a patient may need maintenance laser treatments. 

How does laser hair removal work?

Laser hair removal uses light to target the pigment in individual hairs. The light travels down the shaft of the hair and into the hair follicle. The heat from the laser light destroys the hair follicle, and hair can no longer grow from it. Hair follows a unique growth cycle that involves resting, shedding, and growing periods. Recently removed hair that is in a resting phase will not be visible to the technician or laser, so a person may need to wait until it regrows before removing it. For most people, laser hair removal requires several treatments over the course of 2 to 3 months.

Preparation For Laser Hair Removal

Before treatment, you will have an initial consultation at the dermatologic surgery clinic. During this consultation, the doctor or nurse will discuss your medical history and examine your skin. We will also examine the places you want the hair removed, the texture and color of the hair, and where it is in its growth cycle. A laser hair treatment plan and its related costs will also be discussed, as well as any associated risks.

  • Protect your skin from the sun with a broad-spectrum (protects against both UVA and UVB rays) sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher every day. Do not use a tanning bed. If you have a natural or artificial tan from self-tanning products, your tan must fade completely before your laser hair treatment.
  • Do not pluck, wax, use dissolving creams or have electrolysis for at least one month before treatment. Shaving is okay as it leaves the hair root in place for the laser to target. Shaving may be recommended before treatment.


Before treatment begins, the targeted area will be cleaned. A topical anesthetic may then be applied to the area to keep you more comfortable, although many patients do not need it. You will wear protective eye goggles during the procedure. The laser operator will hold your skin taut while the laser is fired. The laser beam will pass through your skin to the tiny follicles where hair growth originates. The intense heat from the laser beam damages the hair follicles, which stops hair growth. You may feel a stinging sensation or warm pinpricks. The time of treatment will depend on the size of the area treated.

Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

Lasers are useful for removing unwanted hair from the face, leg, chin, back, arm, underarm, bikini line, and other areas.

Benefits of laser hair removal include:

Precision. Lasers can selectively target dark, coarse hairs while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged.

Speed. Each pulse of the laser takes a fraction of a second and can treat many hairs at the same time. The laser can treat an area approximately the size of a quarter every second. Small areas such as the upper lip can be treated in less than a minute, and large areas, such as the back or legs, may take up to an hour.

Predictability. Most patients have permanent hair loss after an average of three to seven sessions.
