Understanding Laser Hair Removal: Procedure and Effects

Understanding Laser Hair Removal: Procedure and Effects

Laser hair removal has gained popularity as a safe and effective method for achieving long-term hair reduction. This process offers a convenient solution for individuals looking to reduce unwanted hair growth on their body.

What is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal is a cosmetic procedure that uses concentrated beams of light (laser) to remove unwanted hair. Common treatment areas include legs, underarms, bikini line, face, and back. This procedure is ideal for individuals with darker hair and lighter skin tones, but advancements in technology have made it possible for more skin types to benefit.

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

Targeting Hair Follicles: The laser light is absorbed by the pigment present in the hair follicles, effectively disabling their ability to grow hair.

Multiple Sessions: Since hair grows in cycles, multiple sessions are needed to target hair in different growth phases.

Precision: Laser technology allows for precise targeting of hair follicles without damaging the surrounding skin.

Effects of Laser Hair Removal:

Reduced Hair Growth: Over time and with multiple sessions, patients experience significant reduction in hair growth.

Long-lasting Results: While not permanent, many individuals enjoy long-lasting hair reduction, with maintenance sessions as needed.

Skin Smoothness: Laser treatment can lead to smoother skin in treated areas, free from stubble and ingrown hairs.

Precision and Safety: Modern laser devices are designed to target hair follicles while minimizing damage to surrounding skin, making it a safe option when performed by qualified professionals.

Preparing for Laser Hair Removal:

Consultation: It’s important to consult with a licensed practitioner to assess suitability and discuss expectations.

Avoid Sun Exposure: Sun exposure should be limited before and after treatment to reduce the risk of complications.

Follow Instructions: Patients are advised to shave before treatment and follow post-care instructions carefully for optimal results.

Consult, Discuss, Decide

Hair transplant made its entry into the Kerala market around two decades ago. It was a fairly new concept and there was a lot of misinformation about it too. As with everything new, it was viewed with skepticism and doubt. Is it safe? Is it hygienic? Is it worth the money? Will it have side effects? Also, there were these terms of hair fixing and hair transplant, which many didn’t know to differentiate. Today, years later, it’s a huge and successful mode of hair restoration in terms of the trust and credibility it has earned from people.

Hair O Craft was one of the first to open exclusive hair fixing and hair transplant clinics in Kerala, with the first being opened in Kochi. Today, we have a total of 20 clinics with expertise in hair and skin care treatments. Hair transplant and hair fixing has seen a lot of advancements since then.

GFC: Quick & safe way to healthy hair

Lifestyle, stress, genetics, health…a lot of factors play a part in issues like hair thinning, hair fall, early baldness and so on. Today, there are many options to address this and make changes, if you want to. Hair fixing & hair transplant have become common terms and common procedures. There are also other procedures that are more targeted to specific problem areas. GFC or Growth Factor Concentrate Therapy is one such successfully and popularly used procedure.

What is GFC Therapy
It is a process wherein growth factors from a person’s own body are used to rejuvenate their hair and also skin. It is mostly a non-invasive procedure. It works on the foundation that every human body has cells or growth factors that can be used to treat some conditions. In simple terms, blood is collected from a patient and the growth factor is separated from it, which is the Growth Factor Concentrate, and is injected to the hair root. This gradually aids in better hair growth and stronger hair.

GFC can be used as a standalone treatment, mostly in cases where the hair thinning is in very early stages and not very extreme. However, for more elaborate treatment, GFC can be used as an add-on treatment to better the recovery & result of hair transplant surgery.

Why GFC?
Some of the main things that most patients want are most modern procedures with high efficiency and low maintenance. GFC treatment is an ideal option that fits in all these aspects. It is a new-age therapy with a high degree of success. The best part is that a patient can walk in during their lunch break, get this done and walk out happily. Most importantly, as the blood used is taken from the patient’s body itself, it is very safe.

GFC vs PRP
Technically there are some differences in GFC and PRP and in the manner in which the procedures are conducted. But as a customer, the primary difference is that GFC shows results more quickly while PRP sessions take time. This is mainly because GFC therapy yields a higher concentration of growth factor.
