Laser Hair Removal

Body hair is one of the most unwanted aspects of the human body. In this millennial generation, men and women both strive hard to be well-groomed and styled, and hence getting rid of the unwanted body hair is one of the most primary things which they often go through. 

Getting rid of body hair, however, is not an easy task as it is time-consuming and requires multiple trips to the salon and other grooming centres. Add to that the results which are often temporary and new hair sprouts up hardly within a few days of the hair removal process. 

What can be done to solve this issue then?

Dr Santosh Bhatia of Vanity Cosmetic Clinic, Mumbai gives an amazing and safe solution to get rid of the body hair with the help of cutting edge laser technology: Laser Hair Removal!

What Is

Laser Hair Removal?

Laser Hair Removal involves the use of short pulsating beams of laser which target the hair follicle. The use of lasers inhibits the growth of the follicles thus giving long-lasting results.

Laser Hair removal can be used on multiple parts of the body like the abdomen, back, chest, hands, legs, underarms and even the pubic region. 

It is a safe and painless way to get rid of unwanted body hair.

Why Do

People Opt For Laser Hair Removal?

Having a smooth and hairless body is considered an epitome of beauty today irrespective of gender. A hairy body is considered as unstyled and ungroomed. Add that the coarseness and length of body hair and it becomes a recipe for shabbiness.

Body hair also hampers the freedom of selection of clothes as individuals tend to shy away from shorts and sleeveless clothes.

There are a number of options available today for hair removal like shaving, hair removal creams, epilators, waxing, threading, so on and so forth. However, these treatments are either extremely painful or come laden with harsh chemicals that might negatively affect the skin. Also, they are time-consuming and require multiple trips to the salon and grooming centres.

Laser hair removal comes with enticing benefits that include it being safe, low-downtime, and with long-lasting results. It is also painless and saves time as visits to the salons totally stop!

What To

Expect Before The Procedure?

Dr Santosh Bhatia will need to know the entirety of the medical history in order to carry out the process smoothly and without any complications. Any impending allergies must also be informed before the procedure. 

You will also be prescribed certain skin lightening creams a few weeks before the procedure. During this period, it is also necessary to keep away from direct sunlight as it might result in skin tanning.

Shaving the body hair is encouraged as it does not directly target the hair follicles but rather minimizes the surface burns. Waxing or plucking is not allowed as it removes the hair follicle which is the target for the laser beams.

Also, the doctor will click a few pictures to analyze the difference in the result after the process is complete.

Vanity Cosmetic Clinic, Mumbai urges patients to maintain a positive and relaxed frame of mind in the days leading up to the procedure.

How Is

The Process Performed At Vanity Cosmetic Clinic?
