When present on the scalp in abundance, hair give you a fantastic appearance. But unwanted hair on different body parts cause an untidy appearance to one’s personality. No woman or man wants to look like wooly mammoths. Gone are the days when people had to go through frequent, painful, time consuming waxing/shaving/plucking procedures for removal of unwanted hair.
At Skin City, we use the very best permanent laser hair removal technologies to target every type of hair in different skin types, ensuring safe and effective treatments across. Soprano Ice diode laser treats the thick, pigmented hair while Alexandrite laser is very effective in removal of thin, less pigmented hair.
How does laser treatment work?
A very intense beam of light is passed through the skin at the hair root. The hair follicle becomes very hot and gets destroyed. The hair follicle is damaged permanently to an extent where it can no longer produce hair at all.
Is the treatment safe?
The treatment is approved by the US FDA. The light produced by the laser is in the infrared which is non-carcinogenic (non-cancer causing). Lasers have been used in the medical profession for over 15 years and no long-term side effects have been reported.
Does the treatment hurt?
During the treatment, patient may experience a mild stinging sensation described by most as snapping of a rubber-band. However, most patients tolerate this. Also a chill tip cooling hand piece is incorporated in the laser which protects the surrounding skin & reduces pain too..
How many treatments will I need?
On an average we recommend a course of 6-8 sessions for body and 8-12 for face. The sessions are typically spaced 6-8 weeks apart.
