How does Laser remove hair/ what is the mechanism of action of Laser hair reduction?
Lasers in dermatology work on the principle of ‘Selective Photothermolysis’. In Laser hair reduction, the melanin pigment present in the hair works as the chromophore and absorbs light between 600-1200 nm. The laser light is absorbed by the melanin in the hair and it gets converted to heat. This heat destroys the growing cells in the hair follicle.
Which is the correct term ‘ Permanent Laser Hair Removal’ or ‘Long term Hair Reduction’?
The correct term is ‘Long term hair reduction’. Laser technology is the best way to get rid of unwanted hair and no other hair removal method matches the results of laser hair reduction.
We can only achieve approximately 70-80% reduction in hair growth in an area even after completing the required number of LHR sessions.
In patients who have or develop hormonal imbalance later, there can be some regrowth of hair in areas which had achieved good reduction earlier.
The most effective and gold standard laser in Laser Hair Reduction is 810 nm Diode laser as it is safe for all skin types including dark skin. Satya Skin & Hair Clinic is using Diode laser for LHR in most of its patients.
