The natural phenomenon of hair growth can be a cause of concern, especially in women should it occur in areas like the upper lip, ears, chin, hands, or legs. Such an excess growth of hair can be due to a plethora of reasons – genetics, polycystic ovarian syndrome, excess hormone secretion, or the intake of specific medications containing steroids etc. No matter what may be the reason, there is an ingrained perception among people that the presence of excess body hair in women goes against the accepted notions of beauty. This ingrained perception is the reason why women down the ages have used various methods to get rid of unwanted body hair – the use of abrasive pumice stone for example.
Today, salons are raking in the moolah by offering body hair removal services such as plucking, threading, waxing or tweezing. Even depilatory creams and shaving have found an increased usage in homes. All these methods are at best temporary and can cause scarring, itching, the formation of blunt and coarse ends, and pain not to mention the regrowth of hair within a short duration. So, why should you be at the receiving end of such outcomes and add to the fortunes of salon owners when you can get rid of unwanted hair permanently? Sounds incredible?
Even though photo dynamic therapy and electrolysis have a reasonable success in achieving hair removal, they have their issues as well including more number of sittings, pain, scarring and post inflammatory hypo or hyper pigmentation. This makes the laser treatment for hair removal the most effective one.
How does laser hair removal near me or in Agra be of help?
In this procedure, a long pulse Nd or diode laser is used in a gentle, non-invasive and painless way to destroy the hair follicles. A laser beam of 1064 nm wavelength is focused on the affected area for a very short duration resulting in its absorption in the melanin of the hair follicle. The impact of laser is such that the temperature of the focused area increases up to 700C destroying the follicles permanently. The laser hair removal in Agra is a permanent and most effective solution to get rid of unwanted hair in women, especially in areas like the upper lip, sideburns, underarms, chin, legs, arms, and bikini line. The treatment is done in phases or in multiple sittings targeting hair in all cycles, most significantly in the anagen phase during which the hair grows. Since the new diode laser comes with a cold tip, the person undergoing the treatment would not require any external cooling.
Another method to remove unwanted body hair permanently
IPL hair removal: Known as Intense Pulsed Light and similar to a laser hair removal procedure, it involves the use of a broad spectrum of light that is less focused than its laser counterpart. This calls for more sittings or sessions to get rid of body hair.
The removal of body hair permanently using laser should be done under the expert supervision of a cosmetic or plastic surgeon. The Saraswat Hospital in Agra is one such place where laser hair removal on a permanent basis is done by American certified cosmetologists using state of the art facilities.
