  2. Numbing cream is applied to the target area, and the laser is slightly moved over the body’s target area. The patient will feel slight discomfort, similar to a rubber band snap on the skin. To manage this, a cooling gel is also applied during treatment.
  3. The patient must also wear protective eyewear to protect the eyes from laser damage. The area not be treated will be covered with clothing, and only the area to receive laser treatment will be exposed.

  1. Ice is applied after treatment. This helps to manage redness and pain associated with this laser treatment.
  2. After the treatment, the patient may experience redness, bumps, and swelling in the treated area for about 2-3 days after treatment. The patients are provided with topical creams and aloe gel to manage these conditions.
  3. After 6-14 days post-treatment, the hair starts to fall out and shed from the skin.
  4. After a single session, one can see a 30% reduction in hair growth, and multiple sessions are recommended to achieve the best results.
  5. Do not expose the treated area to the sun for 7 days post-treatment. Apply board spectrum sunscreen to protect the skin from sun damage.
  6. If blister formation takes place, do not puncture them, and apply antibiotic until healed.
  7. Avoid using sea warmers immediately after treatment.
  8. Exfoliate the treated area to minimize the risk of ingrown hair.
  9. Improper post-treatment care, including sun exposure or excessive heat, increases the chances of pigmentation, scarring, and skin texture changes.

One must also have realistic expectations with the treatment, and with laser treatment, one can get long term hair reduction. But, it is also important to keep in mind that no laser claim 100% hair removal, as with changes in the body, some hair will always strive to grow back. Regrowth is affected by hormonal changes and other biological factors, and that varies from person to person.
