Why Laser Hair Removal?
Hirsutisim (unwanted excessive body hair) is a common problem in women and men, it can be awkward. Even depression may also be caused due to hirsutism, especially in girls. People with excessive hair growth feel embarrassment publically. Before invention of laser hair removal systems there are some temporary procedures which were popular for management of unwanted hair. Threading, plucking, waxing, shaving and use of depilatory creams are all temporary methods that have to be repeated frequently. It is very tough to manage hair growth by temporary procedures. Electrolysis on the other hand can eventually offer long lasting results, but it is very painful, invasive, tedious process and leaves permanent scars and side effects on the skin. All temporary procedures are tedious and time consuming that carried out on relatively small areas of the body and leave some permanent side effects.
Whereas Laser hair removal treatment is a faster and non-invasive medical procedure, that is designed to remove permanent but presently active hair by using the light energy from a laser. Laser works very fast and treats small and large areas of the body in few minutes without harmful side effects. It works on very natural principle that black objects are heated up by absorbing the specific light energy from sunlight. So because of that, most people are not wearing black clothes in summers. Lasers for hair removal are based on that natural principle and deliver the same specific but very strong light energy. That light energy is absorbed by the melanin pigment in the hair shafts in the skin and turned into heat. That heat causes necrosis of papilla and permanent damage to the hair producing structure. This is the purpose of laser hair removal treatment. For laser hair removal treatment there are many laser machines available in the market with different wavelengths, like RUBY LASER, MEDIOSTAR DIODE LASER, LIGHT SHEER, ALEXANDRITE, ND YAG LASER, GENTLE LASER etc.
For this purpose we are using MeDioStar DIODE LASER 810nm wavelength, manufactured by ASCLEPION Germany. MeDioStar Diode Laser has become a synonym for safe laser hair removal. It can transfer its high energy harmlessly through the skin and that high energy reaches to the hair follicles at deeper levels (2 to 3mm). Melanin bearing hair (Black hair) is as the most attractive target for laser energy. Presently black hair shafts & follicles absorb that light energy generated by the Laser and turned into heat. The light is pulsed for fraction of a second and the heat reached up to 60° to 80°C in the melanin of hair shafts. That heat damages the papilla and surrounding cell layers, which are responsible for hair production. Affected hair will shed off after some days and cannot re grow for life. MeDioStar Diode Laser works for all types of skin, (especially Indian skin). Even when using higher energy densities, the skin cooling application of MeDioStar Diode Laser always remains delicate, safe, guaranteeing low risk and gentle treatment for all the patients.
