Excessive Hair Growth

Are you also seeking a permanent solution to your twice-monthly hair removal shebang?

Is waxing, epilation, chemical hair removal, and razor usage leading to skin rashes, pimples, and allergies also for you?

WORRY NOT! - In today’s era of advancing technologies, the US-FDA has approved a set of lasers for Laser hair reduction (LHR). This can also be used by people with conditions such as hirsutism, the presence of hair in a male pattern, and those having increased hair growth because of hormonal imbalance, such as polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS).

Advantage of Lasers for Hair Removal

  1. It is the only treatment that alters the length, color, and thickness of treated hair, making it thinner and lighter and decreasing the growth rate of hair over a period of time.
  2. It does not lead to any post-treatment, rashes, or acne.
  3. It is associated with minimal post-treatment erythema, which is temporary in nature and subsides on its own.
  4. The procedure is almost painless compared to conventional, highly painful hair removal methods.

Indications (Areas treated by Lasers)

  • Sites with terminal hair:
    • Face, predominantly chin, upper lip, and side locks.
    • under-arms
    • back
    • chest and mid-riff
    • arms
    • legs
    • bikini area
  • Hirsutism
  • Post-PCOS increased hair growth

Procedure of Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal involves following steps:

  1. The area to be treated is first shaved using a sterile disposable razor after gel application.
  2. Areas not to be treated are first crossed out, and the areas to be treated are confined into boxes of specific sizes to deliver energy in a pre-specified manner.
  3. Depending on the patient's pain threshold, stamping or in-motion mode is selected.
  4. Energy is increased at every session to inactivate the hair follicle over a period of time sequentially.
  5. Post-procedure, the treatment area is wiped clean, followed by applying moisturizer and an anti-inflammatory lotion.

Device Used

State-of-the-art, US-FDA, approved triple wavelength technology-based device, i.e., a laser that provides three wavelengths.

  • Alexandrite laser -755 nm
  • Diode laser - 810 nm
  • NdYag laser - 1064 nm

Thus every hair follicle is catered from root to tip, ensuring the best outcome! MECHANISM OF ACTION

  • 755 nm: specially designed for lighter skin types and lighter hair.
  • 810 nm: Safe for all skin types
  • 1064 nm: best suited for darker and tanned skin. It has deeper penetration and minimally affects the surface epidermal melanin, thus allowing for safer and more effective treatment.

Treatment success can be assessed by follicular edema and red bumps indicative of effective thermal damage of hair follicles.

How many sessions are required?

The average Indian requires 8-10 sessions with sequentially increased doses of energy. However, the exact number of sessions varies from person to person and site to site in the same person. These can’t be pre-determined, but we at Citrine aim to provide the end result in 6 sessions spaced at 4-6 weeks, followed by 6 maintenance sessions taken by the patient when deemed appropriate as per their hair growth.

Is Laser Hair Reduction Safe?

Yes, it's absolutely safe. Long-term studies have seen no other post-procedural effects besides temporary redness and mild itching post-session. The very commonly associated myth of the risk of cancer associated with laser hair reduction stands invalidated even after 30 years of research. Owing to its targeted chromosphere-based action, lasers are now highly selective and safe!
