What is laser hair removal and how does it work?

Laser hair removal works to permanently remove hair by directing concentrated pulses of light from a laser machine into your skin. These pulses of light energy are absorbed by pigment in hair follicles and destroys unwanted hair, while keeping surrounding skin intact.

At LS Aesthetic, we use Nd: YAG 1064nm laser hair removal technology, which is US FDA-approved for permanent hair reduction.

How many hair removal sessions will I need?

As with most hair removal methods, you will need to undergo several sessions, due to the nature of the hair’s growth cycle. Given that different parts of the body have different hair growth cycles, the exact number of treatments required will differ depend on the body part being treated for hair removal.

Your hair is most susceptible to laser removal at a specific stage of its growth cycle – in particular, the “active phase”. All the hair in the “active phase” will be removed immediately after a laser hair removal session.

Given that not all of your hair will be in the “active” phrase at any one point in time, several hair removal sessions are required in order to effectively target all hair follicles.

It’s important to keep in mind too that the number of sessions needed also depend on many other factors, such as the coarseness of hair or hormones.

Why laser hair removal? How does it match up to IPL, waxing, or even shaving?

The advantages of laser hair removal include:

  • Permanent and effective hair reduction
    • Given that laser hair removal is the only hair removal solution that is able to penetrate deep enough (~6-8mm), it is able to effectively target hair roots.

    • On the other hand, IPL is only able to penetrate to about 2-3mm, and will not be able to eradicate hair roots. IPL does not focus light into the skin the way laser treatments do, and hence IPL works at a lower light energy to remove hair. While this is still effective, this takes more IPL sessions to see the same results.

    • Note that there is no permanent method of hair removal, be it waxing, IPL, or laser treatments, but laser hair removal can permanently reduce the total number of body hairs. You will notice significantly fewer hairs, which are finer and much less obvious.

  • Suitable for all skin types
    • Laser hair removal is suitable and safe for all skin types and colours, and does not cause skin discolouration.

  • No ingrown hairs
    • Unlike waxing or shaving, laser hair removal doesn’t cause ingrown hairs or unsightly bumps. This is great, especially if you have sensitive skin!

  • Cost-Effective
    • With permanent hair reduction, you’ll no longer have to spend on waxing appointments, or endless razors, shaving creams, or depilatory creams for the rest of your life!

How should I prepare for my laser hair removal treatment?

Hair in the treatment area should be shaved prior to the procedure.

Do not pluck or wax hair 2 weeks prior to your treatment, as this removes the hair shaft from the hair follicles. This makes laser hair removal less effective.

Is laser hair removal suitable for me?

It most likely is! Laser hair removal is safe for all skin colours and types, so you don’t have to worry about it causing potential discolouration of the skin.
