Laser hair reduction

Laser hair reduction is a medical procedure that uses a laser beam to destroy the hair follicles that produce hair. While this is not a permanent solution it does delay future hair growth. This treatment can be used on many parts of the body where unwanted hair appears.

As an alternative to waxing, shaving and tweezing, laser hair removal is a fairly safe and painless treatment. It also leads to almost permanent hair loss which is a boon to women. Lasers are useful for removing unwanted hair from the face and the body. Lasers can selectively target dark, coarse hairs while causing no damage to the surrounding skin.

Treatment Options: 

Laser hair removal is a medical procedure that removes unwanted hair by using a concentrated beam of light, called laser. It is best to have laser hair removal done by a dermatologist or cosmetologist, a prior consultation with whom will help you understand whether this treatment is suitable for you. The specialist may suggest between two to six sittings of laser hair removal treatment for you. Laser targets the roots of your hair therefore you should stop plucking, waxing, and electrolysis for six weeks before the treatment.

This treatment will delay hair growth for long periods, and when the hair does regrow, it should be significantly finer. You might require maintenance treatment for better and more effective results of laser hair removal. You can have laser hair removal conveniently done at Medcare in Dubai or Sharjah.
