Know More About Surgery

The patient should avoid waxing, plucking, tanning or any other such skin treatment for a minimum of 3-6 weeks before undergoing laser treatments as a preparation for the same.  Waxing and plucking remove hair follicles temporarily, and considering that laser can only be performed on existing hair follicles, it should be avoided for best results. Before the procedure starts, the laser will need to be adjusted keeping in mind the type of hair that needs to be treated (colour, thickness) for the best possible results. Protective eye wear is worn by both, the patient and the doctor. The hair is trimmed short to a few millimeters and a cooling gel is applied to the skin. The gel not only helps in the better absorption of light, but also protects the skin from damage. The doctor will then apply the laser light to the area that needs to be treated and make necessary changes to suit the patient and for the best possible results. The hair starts falling out two to three weeks post the procedure.
