The ins and outs of laser hair reduction: a Q&A with dermatologist Dr. Ipshita Johri

If you're tired of constantly shaving, waxing, or plucking unwanted hair, laser hair reduction may be the solution you've been looking for. This popular treatment uses laser technology to permanently reduce hair growth, giving you smooth, hair-free skin with minimal discomfort and downtime.

To learn more about laser hair reduction and how it can benefit you, we sat down with Dr. Ipshita Johri, a leading dermatologist at Skinfinity Skin Clinic in Gurgaon and Noida. Here's what she had to say:

Q: What is laser hair reduction and how does it work?

A: Laser hair reduction is a safe and effective way to permanently reduce unwanted hair growth. The treatment uses laser technology to target the pigment in hair follicles, damaging them and preventing future hair growth. It's most commonly used on the face, underarms, legs, and bikini area.

Q: Who is a good candidate for laser hair reduction?

A: Laser hair reduction is safe for most skin types and tones, but it's important to have a consultation with a trained professional to determine if it's the right treatment for you. People with darker, coarse hair tend to see the best results, but those with lighter hair may also benefit from the treatment.

Q: What can I expect during a laser hair reduction treatment?

A: The laser hair reduction process is relatively quick and comfortable. First, the treatment area will be cleaned and a cooling gel will be applied to protect your skin. The laser device will then be passed over the treatment area, delivering pulses of laser light to the hair follicles. Most people feel a mild, snapping sensation as the laser pulses, but this can be minimized with a topical numbing cream.

Q: How long do the results last?

A: Laser hair reduction is a permanent hair reduction solution, but it's important to note that it doesn't guarantee 100% hair removal. Most people see a significant reduction in hair growth after a series of treatments, and the results can last for years. However, some people may need occasional maintenance treatments to keep their results looking their best.

Q: Are there any side effects or risks associated with laser hair reduction?

A: Laser hair reduction is a safe and well-tolerated treatment, but like any medical procedure, it does carry some risks. The most common side effects include redness, swelling, and tenderness in the treatment area, which typically resolve within a few days. Rarely, some people may experience blistering, scarring, or changes in skin pigmentation. These side effects can usually be avoided by choosing a qualified, experienced provider like the team at Skinfinity Skin Clinic.
