The good news is that treatment is the same for both males and females providing expected results. Our laser hair removal technology has allowed almost anyone to be a perfect candidate for the procedure regardless of skin or hair colour. Facial hair removal is a perfect way to get rid of unwanted fuzz on your face without making your skin super sensitive. Ideal candidates are those with darker hair colour and lighter skin tones. Patients are treated by either Diode laser or GentleMAX (alexandrite and ND Yag) technology hence giving us capability of accommodating a larger demographic of skin and hair types.

If your skin appears darker compared to the other areas, it means that your skin cells are producing excess amount of melanin which results in darker skin. And decreased production of melanin makes the skin lighter.

Pigmentation can be treated on any part of the skin using skin lightening agents or creams and laser techniques. Topical creams and lotions have ingredients which inhibits the enzymes that produce melanin and increases the turnover of the skin to remove the existing pigmentation.

You can prevent the occurrence of the pigmentation by applying an SPF 50+ sunscreen daily, even if it is cloudy, or overcast. There are two types of sunscreens, physical and chemical sunscreens. Physical sunscreens are not absorbed by the skin and provide longer lasting protection. Chemical sunscreens are absorbed by the skin and require application of every 2 hours.

Pre-op Preparation

Since laser hair removal cannot be just done by anyone, we will make sure that you meet the specialist who will be working on your body so you can rest assured about the credentials and training of our doctors. Apart from that safety measure there are some steps you ought to follow before your laser hair removal session.

  • Shave the localized area 24 hours before procedure. This is to ensure that the machine used on your skin can do its work without being hindered and the laser pulses will directly reach the hair cells in the roots.
  • Save yourself from excessive sun exposure and tanning for about six weeks before treatment. This is because laser hair removal  is a photo sensitive procedure that has everything to do with skin color and radiation levels so you don’t want any complications!

Do not pluck, wax or remove hair from the roots before the treatment with 4-6 weeks in ANY way since the whole point of laser hair removal is to target and break down the hair follicles in the roots. 

Oral medications are also a treatment option for pigmentation but are suitable for certain kinds of discoloration only.

Hair Removal Procedure

For permanent laser hair removal, the steps taken are simple and few so it’s easy for you to know all about the procedure.

  • Using clean cotton swabs, the area needing treatment is cleaned of germs and topical anesthetic is applied. Since the procedure is almost painless patients are not in need of general or local anesthesia since the discomfort level is bearable by healthy patients.
  • Through a handheld device that the doctor guides over your skin, the laser is beamed through the skin in pulses of less than a second. In that duration concentrated rays of light energy of certain wavelength penetrate the skin.
  • During laser hair removal, the photons of light are absorbed by the pigment called melanin in the hair follicles causing the hair root in the follicle to expire immediately and preventing hair from growing out of that root again.
