How does Laser Removal exactly work?
It highly depends on which technology is being used and which part of the body is treated, there are some small differences, but the basics of any laser function is all the same. Laser light is attracted to the pigment of the hair follicles, explains Dr. Arshi. Scientifically the darker the hair follicle, the more difference there is between the normal skin and hair follicle, so here more and more energy can be focused to treat that root of the hair follicle and burn it so it stops growing back, this is how the laser works. In simple words laser light passes through the area of your skin you want to treat which will give you slight pain during the session that’s all and your session is done painlessly.
The today laser procedure is becoming more and more popular even among men, as having good looks is not a bad choice. Dr. Arshi Rahul, notes that while the most popular places are – chest, legs and back, majorly in case of men laser, she gets many questions to form male patients for treating such areas, many male patients also went for full body laser hair removal.

For any men, who have a little bit of lower pain tolerance, and has traditionally had coarser hair [thick hair], getting laser hair removal is a good option, says Dr. Arshi Rahul. But with the laser, you won’t feel anything happening on the skin. Instead, it delivering the energy in these large chunks like done in traditional laser removal, here it breaks the energy down into smaller chunks very rapidly, so pain is not felt. In fact, its FDA-approved to work on all skin types and pain-free, whereas previously it worked on people with lighter skin.
How long is the entire procedure?
For any procedure, you’ll have to do min 6 sessions, for about six weeks. The reason for taking this many sessions is to stop the hair cycle into the growth phase completely, as successful hair removal happens after 6 to 8 sessions that stops about 90-95% of the hair growth permanently. As all the energy of the laser can be transmitted under the skin and as close to the root as possible to treat the areas.
What all types of machines are used for treatments?
In the skin story clinic, Diode laser is used which is most effective for darker terminal hair and less effective on lighter, finer hair. IPL devises to operate long-pulsed 755 -nm laser is also, its FDA approved is used for hair removal procedures.
On which body parts of man, can laser treatment be done?
There is no such area, which can’t be treated by laser. Laser hair removal can be used on any body part where you have excess hair growth. As the process only targets the roots of the hair, which limits and passes only through dermis [ 2nd layer of our skin]. Places are chest, legs and private parts and back are treated with laser even in men. That is the reason it makes laser more safe, effective, and the best alternative to shaving and waxing, which is painful too, and on top of it once laser done can make you ready for beach time forever.
