All You Need to Know About Laser Hair Reduction | My Experience at Three Graces, Delhi

Wednesday 14 January 2015

Hey everyone!
I am sure most of us hate going for that monthly salon appointment to get rid of facial hair and body hair which is not only a painful process but also very time consuming. 

I had been thinking of trying alternate Hair Removal methods for sometime, and finally visited Three Graces, Delhi last month to get consultation about Laser Hair Removal process.

In today's post, not only I will be talking about my experience at Three Graces but also about various Myths and Facts about Laser Hair Removal.

To begin with, many of us are made to believe that Laser Hair Removal is a permanent hair removal. But, actually it is Hair Reduction method and there's no such thing as permanent hair removal. 

Laser hair removal utilizes beams of highly concentrated light designed to selectively penetrate into the hair follicles, to be absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicles and to destroy the hair within that hair follicle. Nearly any part of the body can be treated safely and comfortably including face, neck , legs, arms, bikini line, back , stomach , etc.
Laser hair removal on smaller areas like upperlips, chin, underarms etc. would require a minimum of 5-6 sittings to reduce the appearance of hair. The results of laser hair reduction vary from person to person, depending upon their skin color and hair growth.

Some of you may see a very long term hair removal which may last for many years. While others may require maintenance treatments over time to maintain their degree of hair loss. Laser hair removal works best on lighter skin tone with darker hair, but newer lasers have made it possible for people having darker skin tone or hair color to get best results out of this procedure as well.

Newer technologies have made it possible for you to go through a Pain-free hair reduction process. Laser being constantly in motion, will give you a feeling like getting a 'hot stone massage'.

There may be few after effects of going through this process like burns, skin pigmentation, redness etc. But if you go have your treatment under a qualified dermatologist using latest technology, the risks of getting side effects are reduced. 

Now, coming back to my experience at Three Graces, Vasant Vihar, Delhi. Three Graces from the house of Amatrra spa offers exclusive wellness options for you all under one roof- Cosmetic Dermatology, Weight Management, Gymnasium, Spa & salon.

Upon my first visit to Three Graces clinic, Gunjan- my consultant there gave me a brief about the services offered, especially the Laser Hair Removal treatment. Then, I filled a form giving details about my medical history and any cosmetic surgeries that I have undergone.

Then, I was introduced to Dr. Ifneela Meraj who is a Senior Dermatologist at Three Graces, Vasant Vihar, Delhi, who discussed in detail with me the steps, what to expect, risks and outcome of the procedure.

When I felt confident enough that I want to undergo Laser Hair removal, I decided to go for smaller areas first - upper lips and under arms - which are also the 2 areas which I just hate getting waxed as I have an uneven growth which causes a lot of pain.

The cosmetic dermatology menu at Three Graces compares with the best in the world. Laser Hair Reduction treatment for unwanted hair is one of the USPs of the brand. They use the latest pain- free US FDA approved Alma Suprano Pro laser specially designed to removed unwanted hair faster, more comfortably and with fewer visits.

An average of 6 sessions are required for optimum results. The laser light selectively absorbed by the hair follicle damages its functions and impairs its ability to fabricate further hair from the follicles. The major benefit of their laser hair process is that their Laser safely and painlessly reduces the unwanted hair. There is practically no downtime. It is the recommended treatment for ingrown hairs as well.

Duration of Laser sessions depend on the surface of the area to be treated. Hair removal on small areas like the lip or the chin takes a few minutes, whereas the treatment of a wide area like a leg or a thigh requires between 1-3 hours.

I went for my 1st session exactly a month ago and so far I have seen a very less hair growth. I will be going through my 2nd session next week and would write my experience in detail in the next blog post.
Meanwhile, do let me know if you have any queries regarding Laser Hair Removal and I will get the answers from my Dermatologist at Three Graces in the next post.
