What is permanent hair removal?

Permanent hair removal is a highly effective hair removal treatment. After the treatment, the hair will not grow back for at least 1 year or more. Popular areas of permanent hair removal include beard, armpit, chest, chin, arms, and bikini line. Using a laser for permanent hair removal with Gentle Yag, it is considered the best technology nowadays. The laser light has a specific wavelength that can pass through the epidermis of the skin and destroy the hair follicle without damaging the surrounding skin during the treatment. Therefore, there is very little chance of scarring.

Frequency of undergoing the treatment

Hairs normally have three growth stages: anagen, catagen, and telogen. The laser will destroy only the hair in anagen state. Therefore, all hair cannot be removed since the first treatment. More than one treatment is required with fewer hairs growing. Generally, it takes 3-4 reps, and each should be done about a month apart for the face and about 2 months apart for the body, arms, and legs.

Pre-Operative care

All temporary hair removal methods should be stopped (shaving, plucking, and waxing) at least 6 weeks before the permanent hair removal.


Post-Operative care

After permanent hair removal, there will be no wounds and no scars, but there may be a slight red swelling around the treatment area, which will heal by itself within 2-3 days. Therefore, there is no recuperation and no special post-operative care. You can take a shower or wash your face with soap as usual. Patients should refrain from using a sponge or stone or using cosmetic or perfume rollers at the hair removal area for 2-3 days. Moreover, patients should avoid sunlight and apply sunscreen on a daily basis.
