The city of Dubai is known for its modern architecture, blooming tourism and its fashion and beauty conscious people. It is no wonder that the best names in clothing, cosmetics and cosmetic surgery are found here.
One treatment highly demanded in Dubai is Laser hair removal. People with busy schedules realize the futility behind wasting precious time in salons getting waxed, threaded or shaved repetitively and want to have a permanent solution hence, laser hair removal is considered as the best option.
This technology can be used to treat the face, arms, under arms, legs, thighs, stomach and pelvic area. The best thing about this treatment is that it produces permanent results that save cost, time and mental stress for the patient.
Some frequently asked questions regarding Laser Hair Removal are the following:
How does laser hair removal treatment work?
This treatment zaps pulses of laser light into the hair follicles containing hair thereby “killing” them and disabling their ability to grow hair. The patient is given eye goggles as protection from the laser and a topical anesthetic is applied to numb the pain. Since various hairs enter the hair growth cycle at different times, about six to eight treatments at eight to twelve weeks of intervals are necessary to ensure complete hair follicle disability.
Am I a good candidate for laser hair removal?
Laser devices work by targeting dark pigment therefore candidates with light or pale skin and dark coarse hair are the best candidates. Hair removal is commonly performed on the face, underarms, pubic areas, chest, abdomen, legs and arms. The lighter the skin and the darker and coarser the hair, the better are the results although today even more advanced devices have been designed to work for darker skin tones and lighter hair.
Are there any side effects of Laser Hair Removal?
There are only temporary side effects of laser hair removal that subside within a day or two. When performed by a skilled doctor, laser hair removal does not cause any serious post treatment side effect such as bleeding or scarring. After treatment, the skin may be red and inflamed for the first few hours and some stinging may be experienced for the next couple of days. If the skin begins to lightly scab then applying petroleum jelly assist in healing. Physical exertion and sun exposure should be avoided several weeks after treatment.
