Veronica: One accessory women never want is body hair, that’s why we’re here at watchmojo.com. I'm looking into a method that will remove hair for good. Hi, I'm Veronica and today, we’re speaking with an expert for all the facts on the laser hair removal method.
So, what is laser hair removal?
Bhavna Khanna: Laser hair removal is essentially removing hair permanently with laser energy.
Veronica: The hair only needs to absorb the laser energy once for it to be removed permanently?
Bhavna Khanna: The hair follicle needs to be in the growth phase and you never know what percentage of hairs are in the right phase so when it is in the right phase and it absorbs that energy, it is damaged and doesn’t go back.
Veronica: So, how long until you’re permanently hair-free?
Bhavna Khanna: The industry generally says that you need six to eight treatments for approximately 85% to 92% permanent hair reduction.
Veronica: Can this be done on any area of the body?
Bhavna Khanna: Any part on the exterior. From your forehead to your toes can be treated.
Veronica: I know at first you have to have a consultation so does this work on any type of skin?
Bhavna Khanna: There is no laser in the world that works on hair without pigment so some people are not a good candidate and that is why we need to evaluate the color of their hair.
Veronica: Everyone can get a hold of a laser but not everyone is certified. How do you make sure you have a safe facility?
Bhavna Khanna: Essentially it’s important to know that a doctor has seen you before your treatments begin, has looked over your medical history charts to make sure there aren’t any illnesses or conditions or medications that somebody is on that could cause side effects. So, it’s really important to know that there is medical staff there.
Veronica: Let’s see someone decided that they want to start the laser hair removal process, what can they expect at their very first appointment?
Bhavna Khanna: You enter the room with the laser hair removal technician and she makes sure that all the areas that are going to be treated have been thoroughly shaved. There’s always some touching up to do. And then we start one area at a time and make sure that everything is done thoroughly. We take our time. We don’t like to rush through it. We can get feedback from the person who is having the treatment done as far as is it painful? How do you feel? Is it very hot?
Veronica: Is there anything you need to avoid after your appointment?
Bhavna Khanna: No, you can go back to work, back to school, back to wherever it is. The important things are that you don’t expose your body to really hot water or a Jacuzzi or sauna that type of thing so there are certain post treatment instructions that we give to everybody just to make sure. For example the sun, avoiding the sun and so on just to make sure that everything is done well.
