Nd:YAG laser hair removal is a safe and effective alternative to do away with the hassle of repeated waxing and shaving of unwanted hair.

It produces 1064nm wavelength of light that is absorbed selectively by the pigment of dark hair follicles. This thermal energy is delivered down to the hair bulbs, thus destroying the follicle unit. Hair fall and suppressed hair growth are achieved without damage to surrounding skin structures.

The treatment area is cleansed. Numbing cream is applied. Cold air is blown over treatment area as the laser is applied. Treatment is painless and comfortable as the doctor runs passes over the treatment area. The laser feels as if a rubber band is lightly snapping on the skin.

Treatment time is typically less than 20 minutes, depending on the size of the area treated.

There is no downtime.

Hair fall may be expected anytime from 3 weeks onwards. As the hair follicles at any one point in time are in different phases of the hair growth cycle, it will take an estimated 6-8 sessions for virtually complete hair growth reduction. Some people may require maintenance laser treatments.

Individual results may vary.

For best outcomes, laser treatment is repeated every 4-6 weeks.
