What is Laser Hair Reduction?
Laser hair reduction is a non-invasive aesthetic treatment to remove or reduce unwanted excess hair from both large and small body areas. It is one of the safe and finest approaches that uses concentrated light technology to destroy the targeted hair follicles and prevent the growth of hair.

Laser hair reduction is an ideal way to get rid of unwanted hair on any part of the body or face except the eyelids and eyelashes. The most common sites of laser hair removal include:

The entire human body is covered with minute skin pores that contain small cavities called hair follicles from which hair grows. Laser hair removal makes use of concentrated light that gets absorbed by the melanin pigment present at the base of the hair strands (inside the hair follicles). The light energy is converted into thermal energy which instantly vaporizes the undesirable hair. As light is being used to heat the unwanted hair (particular area) for destruction, this process is known as selective photothermolysis.
As melanin in the hair is responsible for natural hair color and gets attracted to the lasers, darker hair has more melanin and can effectively absorb the laser light than lighter hair. The lasers work successfully only on actively growing hair.

Pre-Requisites for Laser Hair Reduction
What to Expect?
Prior to the laser hair reduction procedure in Rajouri Garden (West Delhi) and Vasant Vihar (South Delhi), at Dadu Medical Centre in Delhi the candidate is asked to wear eye protection to prevent harming their eyes from lasers throughout the treatment session. The area to be treated is cleansed properly and may be numbed with a local anesthetic depending on the site.
The procedure starts with the application of cooling gel and placing of the handheld laser device against the skin surface of the area to be treated and activating the laser. As the laser light focuses onto the targeted hair, most candidates report each laser pulse to feel like a warm pin prickling sensation or a hot rubber band snapping against the skin. The cooling device built inside the laser is used as an aide to soothe the skin during the entire procedure.
There is a wide range of lasers that can help get rid of unwanted hair by precisely acting on the selected area and leaving the surrounding skin or tissues undamaged. These include Alexandrite Laser, Diode Laser, and Triple wavelength laser. For the Alexandrite laser, the typically employed setting for hair removal includes pulse durations of 2-20 milliseconds and fluences of 10-40 J/cm2. Diode lasers project light of wavelength around 880nm (falling in the visible or infrared range) to allow deep penetration and superior melanin absorption. However, the best among all is the Soprano Titanium laser which makes use of triple wavelengths and is operated on multiple modes to virtually painlessly remove unwanted coarse or fine hair for all skin tones at any time of the year. The soprano titanium laser hair reduction procedure is super-quick for large body areas and is perfect for hard-to-reach and sensitive body areas.
The procedure is associated with minimal recovery time and candidates can resume their normal routine immediately after the procedure. Following laser hair removal, the candidates can expect to see a reduction in the number of extra hair in the treated area. After 2-8 weeks of the procedure, a noticeable increase in hair growth can be noticed in the treated area as all hair follicles do not fall in the growth phase of the hair growth cycle so they do not get affected equally by the laser. Mostly, candidates can experience mild hair reduction after the first laser session, but to achieve visible and long lasting results 3-8 sessions are needed. Furthermore, the results are maintained by yearly maintainance sessions.
