To maintain the continuity of results, the traditional hair removal methods must be repeatedly performed after a week.

Does laser hair reduction hurt?

The pulse of the laser lasts less than a second and produces a slight tingling sensation or feels like a rubber band snap on the skin. The sensation subsides within a few hours of the treatment.
How does the laser hair reduction treatment work?
The laser hair reduction treatment uses the light of suitable frequency to eliminate hair more effectively and for a longer period of time. A broad-spectrum of light is emitted on the skin surface and when further penetrates into the hair shaft. The light is absorbed, and the hair root is heated and destroyed. The laser applicator is then moved to the surrounding skin area, and the process is repeated until the entire area of the skin is covered. Alma Soprano Ice Platinum is the most advanced and safe lasers that are highly effective in removing hair from all skin types, from dark to light. The laser beam penetrates the skin more deeply than other lasers and causes no damage to the epidermis and directly targets the hair follicles.
What types of results would I expect from laser hair reduction treatment?
One can see visible improvement after the very first session of laser hair reduction treatment itself. There is a gradual decrease in hair thickness, hair density, and the amount of hair present. In addition, one can also see a decrease in stubble, rashes, and ingrown hairs.
Why are multiple laser hair reduction treatments recommended for achieving the best results?
The hair growth takes place in three different stages. All the hair are not at the same stage simultaneously. Therefore when an area is treated with lasers, only a few percentage of hair at their anagen phase will be affected. To reduce hair growth effectively and to get rid of unwanted hair, multiple treatments are necessary.
What are the precautions one needs to take before an appointment?
• Protect the skin from sun or UV exposure for about a month prior to the treatment.
• Remove any spray tan from the area to be treated.
• Shave the area to be treated between 12-24 hours before the treatment. Otherwise, the entire hair will absorb the energy emitted by the lasers, and it will heat up, which can burn the skin.
• Do not wax or tweeze the area to be treated for up to six weeks prior to the appointment.
• Do not apply topical creams on the area to be treated before the appointment.
How long does a laser hair reduction treatment session take?
Each laser hair reduction session's length depends on the area size, density of hair, speed of the machine, and the patient's pain threshold. For example, it takes 2-3 minutes to treat upper lips, 6-10 minutes to do both underarms, and 30 minutes to do full legs.
What are the possible side effects of laser hair reduction treatment?
The common side effects of laser hair reduction treatment include slight burning sensation, redness, and swelling. One has to apply antibiotics and ice to manage discomfort after treatment. These side effects disappear within a couple of hours after treatment. One should always undergo this treatment from an expert to minimize the risk of getting any side effects.

Almost every part of the body is suitable for laser hair reduction. Unwanted hair on the face, chin, bikini area, arms, chest, legs, and underarms are all suitable sites for laser hair reduction.
