Let us know……what is required to achieve 100% results with LHR technologies, other than individual skin and hair type, hormonal levels, etc.,
1.The wavelength of Lasers (nm)
2.Stamping mode-conventional & In-motion laser technology-super hair removal
Most commonly used lasers & light for laser hair removal are:
Diode Laser Hair Removal
Long Pulse NDYAG Laser hair removal
Alexandrite Laser hair removal
IPL - Intense pulse light hair removal
Each of the different types of laser has a specific range of utility, depending on its wavelength and penetration for every skin and hair type.
Different lasers are effective for different hair & skin types
Diode Laser is the Gold Standard in LHR
640/690 IPL and Alex 755nm WL work better for superficial or Fine Hair & lighter Skin.
Long Pulse Nd: YAG 1064nm WL works better for deeper or thick hair & darker skin.
LHR works on a principle called “Selective Photothermolysis”
Stamping Mode tech: Milesman Diode 810nm, Hyperion Long Pulse Nd: YAG 1064nm, EXILITE IPL 640/690nm. (add video): works by The light energy for the laser torch enters the hair follicles through the skin which causes permanent damage to follicles to re-grow.
In-motion Technology: Soprano-ICE Diode 810 & ALEX 755 (add video) works by: gradually heating the dermis to a temperature that effectively damages the hair follicles and prevents re-growth.

Benefits of Laser Hair Removal
Precision: The laser light selectively damages the thick and stubborn hair while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged.
Speed: Each pulse of the laser takes a fraction of a second and can treat hundreds to thousands of hairs at the same time.
Predictability: Most patients have permanent reduction or of hair after an average of five to seven sessions.
Different lasers are effective for different hair and skin types:
Amongst the different lasers available, a diode laser is a time tested among the laser technology. There are many reasons for this, such as:
Diode laser projects light within the visible to the infrared range (810 nm) in order to target specific pigment (melanin) cells.
It works on both light and dark skin. However, it is more effective for darker, terminal hair than lighter, finer hair.
Compared to other lasers, its wavelength offers the deepest penetration and superior melanin absorption.
These unique characteristics make diode laser the most suitable technology for laser hair removal, allowing safe and effective treatment of all skin and hair types, for all body areas.
Diode laser hair removal is so popular because of its speed and efficacy. A single session rarely takes more than an hour. In fact, it an office-hour procedure, which means that it is quick & ensures a speedy recovery.
This procedure has been proven to achieve ‘permanent hair reduction’ in >90% of the cases.
It ensures a stable reduction, in hair re-growth after a prescribed treatment regime.
Long Pulse Nd Yag laser
The Nd: YAG long pulse laser can be used safely on all skin types – type I to VI. Most notably, it is highly effective on dark or tanned skin with darker hair but is of limited use on light or fine hair. Fast repetition rates and large coverage areas allow large areas of the body to be treated quickly. Nd: YAG technology can be used to eliminate unwanted hair on almost any part of the body.
The Alexandrite laser has a shorter wavelength than the Diode and Nd: YAG lasers, and has been used effectively for laser hair reduction treatment on skin types I-IV, meaning fair and light brown skin types. The shorter wavelength makes the treatment more effective on lighter skins, and finer hairs as they are more superficial and not suitable for darker skins.
Your doctor will discuss with you your detailed medical history, the risks and benefits of treatment, and your expectations from it beforehand.
Will shave the area you wish to get the procedure.
Don’t wax or use other hair removal methods like plucking or electrolysis anytime between the laser hair removal treatment sessions.
Stay away from the sun, tanning beds, spray tans, tanning lotion.
You may be advised not to have treatment if you are facing sunburn.
Don’t use scrubs, glycolic acid, and retinol creams for 1-3 days before treatment, and chemical peels 15days prior.
During The Procedure:
Test patch: it’s important to conduct a small test patch first to make sure that your skin is accepting of the treatment as pigment problems, discoloration, and scarring can occur in some skin types with cosmetic laser treatments.
Eye protection: Your doctor will provide eye protection to avoid the effects of radiation around the eyes.
Settings: The laser settings are adjusted for both your skin and hair color so that the wavelength of the light emitted from the laser beam matches that of the pigment in your hair.
Pain: The pain feels like someone is snapping you with a rubber band every time the laser fires. Most lasers also have a cooling mechanism to help with the pain.
Some swelling or blistering may occur. Therefore, you can use an ice pack to help relieve it. It usually subsides within 2-3 days.
SPF 30 sunscreen post-treatment is a compulsion to prevent pigmentation issues.
Do not wax or pluck your hair even after the treatment, because pulling out hair follicles after laser hair removal hinders the process. However, you can shave the area if you want.
It is advisable to avoid perfumes and deodorants for 24-48 hours after treatment.
The heat generated from the laser stays in your skin for few hours, so don’t go to the gym or saunas in order to avoid creating a warm environment for the bacteria to breed in and give you spots.
Your physician may prescribe anti-inflammatory medication to relieve pain and swelling, and sometimes antibiotics to prevent infection.
A series of treatment sessions are necessarily required to ensure permanent hair reduction.
This is because hair grows in four stages: anagen (growing stage), telogen (transitional), catagen (resting stage), and early anagen (shedding).
Almost all hair removal lasers work only on actively growing hair that is in the anagen stage because this is when the hair contains abundant melanin, which is essential to absorb the radiation from the laser that can disable the follicle.
Thereby a series of treatments is necessary required to attack each of the hair follicles present on the treatment area during their growing stage.
In general, the majority of the individuals will need at least 6-8 sessions with hair removal laser. The duration between 2 sessions will be around 6-10 weeks apart. This will help achieve 80-90% hair reduction.
With subsequent sessions, you will witness fewer and fewer hair cropping back until you start experiencing smooth, hairless skin all year round. Even in cases where few hairs keep growing back, they are barely noticeable.
Results: If you are expecting good results, patience and regular follow-up are very important, you need to follow your sessions as advised by your doctor so that each hair follicle can be targeted in its active stage. Herewith advisable not to be lazy in scheduling and keeping up with your sessions. In most cases, 30-50% hair reduction is noticed at the 3 treatment and about 80-90% of hair re-growth reduction after 6-8 treatment sessions.
