There are more chances of bacterial growth in moist and dampen areas like armpits if there is an excess presence of body hair. This leads to infection as well as body odour. So, besides cosmetic benefits, personal hygiene is another reason which tempts people to go for full body hair removal with lasers.
Although there are several different hair removal methods, most of these show adverse effects on the skin besides being messy, painful, and time-consuming. The use of chemical hair removal products may cause dryness in the skin and sometimes induce dark patches formation on the skin. While waxing is considered a very effective method, there are side effects as well. Waxing is a very painful procedure of body hair removal and sometimes causes rashes on the skin. Hair is pulled from the root in waxing that may cause tiny lesions. Shaving off the body hair is a very hectic, messy, and time-consuming process. All these hair removal procedures need to be repeated every 10-15 days to keep the skin hair-free and smooth. To have long-term or permanent relief from repeated hair removal processes, one can go for Laser Hair Reduction in Delhi at Dadu Medical Centre.
Full body laser hair reduction is a medically-approved procedure. Hair grows from a small organ (observed all over the skin) called hair follicles. Hair contains a pigment called melanin, which is much more abundant in black-colored hair. In laser treatment, a beam of laser light is used to damage the hair follicles. The hair pigment absorbs this concentrated beam of light. This light is converted into heat and causes thermal destruction of hair follicles. After repeated laser treatment sessions, the hair growth becomes thinner and thinner and finally becomes so light, and the laser also damages the hair roots, which causes the target hair to fall. This method of hair reduction is therefore considered the best medical solution for unwanted body hair.
In full-body laser hair reduction treatment, body areas like back, chest, face (including upper lips, beard lining), arms and armpits, legs, and bikini areas all can be treated. Any area except eyelids, and surroundings can be treated with laser treatment. The laser beam, when it touches the skin, may feel a little warm. This discomfort is reduced by applying cooling gels, or sometimes a cool air laser treatment device is also used, which has a built-in cooling technique and provides cool air during the treatment. Eye protections are compulsory equipment for both the patient and dermatologist.
