Is laser hair removal safe?

Laser hair removal is popular with people looking for a permanent hair removal solution than other methods. Using lasers to remove hair works by inactivating hair follicles from growing new hair. Before starting treatment, however, you should be aware of some of the negative effects of this treatment, as well as other myths surrounding the procedure. This method is largely a safe way to remove hair from unwanted areas permanently or for a long time.

Side effects

Laser hair removal is generally safe. A few side effects may occur after the procedure. Most side effects are minor and temporary. Anyone with chronic side effects should report it to their dermatologist.

Post-procedure issues

Redness & Bumps may be there. Immediately after your treatment, redness & bumps at the treatment area are common; these may last up to a few hours. You can use a cold compress if the sensitivity persists. Darker pigmented skin may have more discomfort than lighter skin & may continue longer. Cleanse the area treated gently. Wash the area gently with mild soap. Dead hairs will begin to shed 5-30 days after your treatment. You can do exfoliation to speed up hair shedding. Avoid sun exposure to reduce the chance of dark or light spots for 4 weeks. Use a sunscreen (spf 50 or higher) at all times throughout the treatment period & for 1-2 months following. Do not /wax or thread the area. On average, most clients experience a level of hairless happiness after 7-9 sessions, Yes, it’s life-changing!

Skin discoloration

Some people may notice small changes in the color of their skin. It may be slightly darker or lighter, following the procedure. People with fair skin may be more likely to experience a darker complexion. People with darker skin may be more prone to light skin changes. These changes usually disappear in some time, and the skin returns to normal.

Eye injuries

The hair removal procedure involves the use of lasers. This means that there is a risk of serious damage to a sensitive organ like the eyes, especially if the doctor is working on a person’s face. Both the person receiving the treatment and the doctor should wear eye protection to help prevent injuries during the procedure.

What are the risks of laser hair removal?

Most people who use it find that laser hair removal is safe and well-tolerated treatment. There do not appear to be any long-term health risks associated with the procedure. However, you may have minor side effects after the treatment. People should ask their dermatologist to check how a small piece of skin reacts to treatment before treating a large area of skin. People who wish for laser hair removal treatment should always visit a fully trained doctor.

Is laser hair removal painful?

Within a few days after treatment, the affected skin may become red and tender. During the procedure, some people describe the feeling as piercing pins, heavily marked over the bright bones. The procedure itself, however, is usually painless.

Does it work?

Laser hair treatment works, but it is not always possible to achieve permanent hair removal. However, laser treatment can greatly reduce hair growth. After initial treatment, most people will only be hairless for a few months. Hair will eventually grow back, though it usually gets better, lighter, and less likely to look better than earlier.

Most people will need multiple sessions to find a permanent or satisfactory solution for unwanted hair. Hair may grow thinner and thinner with each passing session. After adequate treatment, it may stop growing and return completely. This treatment is also effective on dark hair. People with white, red, or gray hair may not notice the slightest change, as laser beams are attracted to dark hair and often do not work on light hair.

Some myths about laser hair removal

Laser hair removal causes cancer

This concept is totally baseless. Lasers are specially designed to penetrate skin cells and target only deep hair roots within the skin. Lasers used to remove hair produce a small amount of radiation. However, this radiation is not dangerous, and there is no evidence that it can cause skin cancer.

Laser hair removal causes infertility

The myth that laser hair removal causes infertility is not supported by any study. Lasers only penetrate the skin and do not reach or touch any other organ. This treatment is often safe, even in sensitive areas such as the groin.

Home remedies are like seeing a doctor

Home machines are available for people who want to remove unwanted hair without going to a dermatologist. Most people can get milder results by using these kits, such as light or thin hair. However, home remedies are not the same as the powerful medical devices used by doctors.

When to see a doctor

Anyone experiencing side effects to laser hair removal should consider seeing their doctor. They can usually control symptoms such as redness and swelling at home, but they should always report symptoms of skin infection to a doctor or dermatologist. Early reporting of symptoms allows for immediate treatment and can help prevent any permanent changes.

Anyone who is trying to conceive should consult a doctor before this treatment. The doctor may advise other methods, as laser usually requires many times not to be done during pregnancy.

Take home message

Laser hair removal is safe and effective for most people when done by a qualified doctor or dermatologist. It can take multiple sessions to remove unwanted hair completely, and permanent hair removal is not always guaranteed. The number of sessions also depends on pre-existing hormonal issues, if any. Some people may experience minor side effects after treatment, such as redness, swelling, and irritability, and can usually treat this at home. Anyone who sees signs of skin infection should see a doctor.

Have you experienced Medifacial? try it today!

The Medifacial treatments are different from routine facial clean-ups. There are so many variants of Medifacial, which is done under the surveillance of Medical professionals. Today medifacials are increasingly popular in all ages. Medifacials is a name given to medical-grade treatment for face for skin rejuvenation, correction of various issues like wrinkles pigmentation, acne, scar, and sun-damage or anything else.

There are a variety of Medifacial options available as per your skin type and concerns. Some of the very popular Medi-facial clean-ups are Hydra-facial, microdermabrasion, laser facial, AHA facial, and so on. These facial techniques are great for all skin types. It slows down the aging process and regenerates the collagen elasticity that gives a new life to dull and tired-looking skin. Medi-facial is highly effective and gives you long-lasting results.

Visiting a local salon or beauty parlor for monthly facials is a common practice among Indian women. Women opt for this beauty regime to rejuvenate their skin and make it glowing and soft for a few days. Are these spa facials causing more harm than good? Turns out, they are!

SALON FACIAL vs MEDIFACIAL

Spa facials are performed without any skin analysis about your pre-existing skin condition. An untrained person handles your skin without care of proper Hygiene. So cases of infection rashes and acne are common after the procedure. Salon facials are based on messaging, using cream and scrub, sometimes feel relaxing but no cure to underlying skin concerns. On the contrary, medi-facials are done by a trained aesthetic physician or cosmetic dermatologists. Medifacial is tailor-made to suit the needs of individual skin needs.

These are more cost-effective in the long run as they treat the underlying skin concern and give a long-lasting glow. Medical grade facial takes the benefit of cutting edge technology which helps us to deliver the best possible results. Thanks to globalization and increased consumer awareness, now most men and women are turning to medi-facials.

Medifacial – it’s better

Medi-facials are specially designed and customized by expert doctors to suit your skin need. It makes your skin feel relaxed, pampered, and more radiant. On top of that, they make your skin feel healthier and softer.

An experienced Cosmetic physician performs the whole procedure of medifacial, using ingredients that are skin-friendly and medically proven to benefit the skin. Unlike salon facials, they are not based on the chemical bleaching principle, rather they are based on the infusion of vitamins, antioxidants, alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs). These ingredients provide an instant brightening effect as well as anti-aging benefits in the long run.

Skin pigmentation is one of the most visible signs of skin aging. Pigmentation and age spots are all largely due to long-term sun damage. At the Skinssence-Laser and Skin Care clinic, we provide a variety of non-surgical procedures to reduce the appearance of blemishes, fine lines, and wrinkles. We specialize in non-invasive wrinkle treatments which give you a youthful appearance.

Commonly available medifacial in India

Hydrafacial

There are many steps involved in the hydra facial treatment. You start by cleansing the skin, followed by a light toner to prime the skin for the next step, dermabrasion. This removes all impurities from your skin and allows it to be more receptive to the infusion of peel like salicylic acid and glycolic. The aesthetic physician applies the peel due to which extraction phase of the facial takes place. This is followed by the final step, which is a hyaluronic peptide infusion to restore moisture and glow to your face. The total procedure generally takes only 45 minutes, but extra steps can be topped to boost the facial.

The Results from Just ONE HydraFacial

With most facials, there’s downtime; a few days of sensitive skin where it’s not yet at that glowy selfie-level you may have thought. However, this is not the case with a HydraFacial; as soon as you leave the clinic, your skin will look more radiant. The HydraFacial also has a huge impact on skin texture. You feel it softer than before and your pores will appear smaller. It can also help improve the appearance of blemishes. Some people have reported that they felt some tightness due to the extraction. This disappears after 12 hours.

Microdermabrasion

Typically, 6 step microdermabrasion treatment, helps to refresh and refine dull skin, can soften wrinkles, fine lines, and can promote a more even skin tone. It combines diamond-tipped exfoliation with vacuum suction technology and powerful topical cosmetic products. Microdermabrasion is suitable for all skin types. Crystal microdermabrasion uses force to remove the superficial layer of the epidermis, while diamond microdermabrasion is more abrasive. Your skin care professional is the best judge, he will guide you to the right method of exfoliation according to your skin concerns. Your doctor who performs the treatment will adjust the pressure, suction, and flow to best suit your skin. Microdermabrasion targets skin conditions like mild acne, fine lines, oily skin, and large pores.

Laser facial

Today, lasers are a powerful cosmetic tool for both hair removal and skin rejuvenation, that are quickly replacing their traditional facial.

So the next time you’re considering going in for a facial, you may want to consider the many amazing benefits of laser treatments for the perfect glow.

PERMANENT SOLUTIONS

With laser treatments, many people find that their results are permanent, even after their initial treatment. This is due to the lasers triggering the skin’s natural self-healing process. Today, cosmetic medicine can cure conditions like age spots and even sun damage at the root level and not just from outside.

TARGETED TREATMENT

While traditional facials can be relaxing and soothing, they just can’t achieve the same results as are possible through laser treatment. Because these treatments use beams of intense pulsed light to target the unwanted skin condition far beneath the surface, these methods are much more effective than traditional counterparts, which can only target the outermost layers of the skin.

LASER TREATMENTS OFFER THE SAME SAFETY AS TRADITIONAL FACIALS

Nonablative lasers to restore the skin’s smooth tone and texture can target underlying conditions without harming the surface of the skin. Because nonablative lasers typically use low-energy light, these procedures may require multiple sessions, depending on your specific needs. But because they’re safe and gentle on the skin, you don’t have to select between safe or effective–you can have them both together!

TREAT MANY SKIN CONDITIONS

Another amazing benefit of laser skin resurfacing is that the same laser can treat a variety of different medical conditions. Whether age spots, wrinkles, sun damage, rosacea, or acne is a concern, laser treatment can be very effective at repairing and restoring the skin to its natural, healthy level. While a traditional facial may appear soothing, it’s not generally an effective treatment for concerns related to pigmentation or discoloration. These are problems that need to be addressed. Laser treatments, on the other hand, can work to restore your skin’s collagen production and heal skin conditions at the root of the problem.

FEWER RECURRING VISITS

With laser treatment, once your initial round of procedures is complete, you can enjoy your normal routine without having to worry about your next consultation.

Chemical peel

Chemical peel procedure can be combined with medifacial depending on individual skin need and time. Medical grade chemical peel is a single-step procedure. Just apply it to dry or slightly damp skin, scrub and rinse.

Are you considering an OPD chemical peel? Like other aesthetic procedures, there is a wide range of chemical combinations, strengths and techniques used that can make it overwhelming to decide which is best for you. We typically guide the patient to the most appropriate type and level of chemical peel to address the problem and yield a satisfying result. What’s realistic? What isn’t?

Here are the Realistic Goals of Chemical Peels:
  • Correct sun damage
  • Reduce mild scarring
  •  Reduce or eradicate wrinkles
  • Improve dark skin discoloration
  • Remove excessive/stubborn blackheads
  • Temporarily reduce excessive skin oils

Sunscreen is must

Please note that regardless of your chosen form of peel or microdermabrasion, exfoliation thins the epidermis, making it more vulnerable to sunburn. I always recommend the use of a broad-spectrum SPF 30, daily.

Men’s medifacial

Modern men are well aware of skincare and well-being, and keeping up to date for anything. It is especially for those men who have facing jobs or just like to keep their skin spotless while aging at the same time. Our treatment helps in pollution and aging. This treatment can also be considered as monthly skin rejuvenation and relaxation. Nowadays, 30% of customers coming in for these medi-facials are men. The instant and long-lasting results have made Medi facials incredibly popular. A reward is that these treatments are safe for all skin types, so you don’t have to worry about a red and swollen face.

The right age to get the medi-facial

Acne is a major skin concern among teenage boys and girls, and so, people who are 15 and above are prime candidates for medifacial treatments. Hence, 15 is the minimum age for medical facials. Medi-facials are safe for all after puberty.
