The laser device is a relatively modern medical innovation that can be used for a multitude of procedures, including photorejuvenation and laser hair removal. The laser hair removal procedure in Rugby is quite effective, uncomplicated and non-invasive; if performed correctly by a properly trained professional, there are very little chances that any medical complications will occur. The operation itself is simple both in concept and in practice: the unwanted strand of hair is exposed to intense pulses of laser light which is absorbed by the dark melanin located within the hair strand. This causes the hair follicle to overheat and become damaged to the point it will fall off and will not be able to regenerate. This form of laser treatment is based on the principle of selective photothermolysis, meaning that the wavelength of the light beam and the duration of the pulse are set in order to cause maximal damage to the follicular unit and minimal damage the surrounding tissue. The dark melanin located in the hair strand will absorb the laser beam at a far greater rate than the adjacent skin, enabling the dermatologist to safely remove the hair follicles without damaging the client’s skin. Because it is non-invasive, the technique can be used in a number of areas of the body, including the back, the chest, the legs, the arms and the bikini area, both in the case of men and women. This type of laser treatment is considered suitable for addressing the effects of both hypertrichosis, which is the excessive growth of the body hair in normal or abnormal patterns, and hirsuitism, or excessive growth of hair in women. The experienced dermatologists of Renew Skin & Health Clinic are prepared to provide excellent laser hair removal in Rugby, and now with the help of the two laser technologies, we are also able to perform Asian skin laser hair removal in Rugby, designing a special laser therapy that is matched to the particular requirements of each individual client in order to ensure effective hair removal without exposing them to any considerable medical risk.
In general, the effectiveness of the hair growth reduction treatment varies between 10% and 25% after the first session, depending on a number of factors. Thin-skinned areas of the body, such as the armpits or the bikini area, respond better to laser hair removal than thick-skinned areas, such as the back or the chin. The colour and the thickness of the targeted hair follicle also affect the efficiency of the laser treatment since darker and coarser hair is removed more easily than thinner hair follicles. After each laser therapy session, the targeted hair will regrow thinner and less dense until it is completely removed, usually after 2 to 4 sessions. There is only minimal discomfort felt during the procedure, usually described as a mild irritation, which is easily addressed using cold compresses and anesthetic creams. The recovery period usually takes no more than 24 hours, during which all signs of the intervention, such as epidermal irritation and follicular adenoma, disappear completely.
