Laser hair removal is a procedure wherein various types of lasers can be used such as the Diode laser, Alexandrite or an ND YAG laser. It is targeted on the skin over the hair follicles. Due to the energy that goes into the hair follicles, the ones that are absorbed get destroyed. a laser goes at a particular depth. Every type of laser has a particular depth at which it can penetrate after which it becomes ineffective. Although, most hair reduction lasers in the market can penetrate in the skin level. But they do not go below the skin and just go up to the level of the skin till where the hair follicles are present.
Laser hair removal emits light that is absorbed by the pigment in the hair. The light energy is then converted to heat, which damages the tube-shaped sacs within the skin that produce hairs. This damage inhibits or delays future hair growth. If you go to any clinic without research, there are chances for side effects to occur and that is why some people say it’s not safe. The most important thing that can go wrong is a superficial burn injury. If the laser has too much energy there is a chance of a superficial burn injury to the skin.
The risks that are associated with hair reduction may be there. Thus the advantages you get after the reduction in the hair if proper energy is used are many. If the hair follicles are targeted perfectly, then there is a reduction in the growth of those hair follicles. Therefore if the energy of the laser is used is not proper, then the energy is high and is not appropriate. Hence then there are a few things that may happen especially if the laser is not calibrated properly. Absolutely laser hair removal is safe if taken proper care like getting treated with a dermatologist or a professional technician. Few points need to keep in mind to make laser hair removal safe. Like the application of gel on the treating surface and ice cubes to make the area numb.
