Hair Removal through Laser Treatment
Smooth, hairless skin is idealized. However, one can get tired of constantly waxing, shaving and tweezing. If you want permanent hair removal, laser treatment is your answer.
We know that unwanted hair and its consistent removal is tiring. Moreover, shaving, waxing and creams do not last long either. That’s when you should consider laser hair removal to get rid of unwanted hair for life in a matter of months.
A beam of the laser is used to destroy the hair follicles mostly on the legs, arms, armpits, underarms, bikini line and upper lip. However, laser hair removal can be used on any part to remove unwanted hair. The only exceptions are eyelids and tattooed skin.
What is Laser Hair Removal?
The concentrated laser beam is absorbed by melanin, a pigment found in the hair. Further, this light from the laser is converted into heat, which destroys the hair follicles. Hair follicles are responsible for hair growth, therefore, this damage hinders further hair growth.
You will require multiple sessions to effectively get rid of the unwanted hair. Moreover, you may even require sessions to maintain the results for 2 to 3 months. Laser hair removal works best on dark hair and light skin. This is because the hair pigment should absorb the laser, not the skin pigment. So the darker the hair, the better results. Though, this does not mean that laser is ineffective on darker skin. Our latest technologies ensure good results for different skin colors.
You can remove unwanted hair through laser in almost any part of the body. However, it is mostly used for legs, underarms and on the face.
Laser hair removal benefits include:
It is speedy
One laser pulse can target much hair together and takes about less than a second. On upper lips, the laser can remove hair in a minute. While your legs can take up from 25 minutes to an hour. Therefore, small areas are covered very fastly and each second it can cover a quarter of the target area.
Can Treat any Area
If you want to get rid of unwanted hair anywhere on your body, laser hair removal can do that. Either it is your back or your stomach. Moreover, it is extremely precise. It will damage only your dark hair follicles without harming your skin. Hence, you can get it anywhere on your body without worrying about anything else.
Reduces Hair Growth
Over sessions, you will notice that your hair growth has drastically decreased. Though, some people may permanently get rid of unwanted hair by 7 sessions. Others will notice hair growth decrease to the point that you no longer need to wax or shave.
Lesser Pain Compared to Waxing
You may feel a tingling sensation from a laser treatment. It is not painless as shaving but it is definitely less painful than waxing. Our doctors may apply ice to numb the area before and after your treatment so that you feel less pain. Moreover, the pain decrease with each session as the hair is gradually decreasing.
More Effective Than Home Lasers
Home lasers are considered a cosmetic procedure, however, Laser Hair Removal at REPC Dubai is a medical procedure conducted by trained professionals. Home lasers may reduce hair growth over a long period of time though, they are not as effective. They lack scrutiny and precision. Moreover, you need to be extra careful with the device to avoid any damage. Whereas at our medical center you will not have to worry about safety and risks.
Laser Hair Removal Procedure at REPC Dubai
Laser Hair Removal is a medical procedure that should be carried out only by a professional doctor. At REPC Dubai, our qualified staff of dermatologists and cosmetic surgeons will carry out your procedure with extreme precision and care.
They have experience in carrying out laser hair removal on different skin types. We will ensure that you leave satisfied and are content with the results. Before you start the treatment, consult your doctor if this is the right treatment for you.
Book an appointment with our doctors to discuss your medical history, skin conditions, and medications. They should also know about the previous hair removal procedures you have undergone and what are your expectations from this procedure. They will clarify if your hair color will be effectively removed from laser or if you will require any other of our services for better results.
Once, you are ready for your treatment, you will have to prepare accordingly before your session.
You should stop using wax, plucking and electrolysis at least four to six weeks before you get laser treatment. These procedures may disturb the hair roots that laser targets, leading to ineffective treatment.
However, you do need to shave your target area a day before the session. Shaving and trimming help to prevent surface skin damage. The hair on the skin is removed hence they do not burn during the procedure. However, the hair shaft is present below the surface to carry out the procedure effectively.
Similarly, you should also avoid the sun for about six weeks before and after the treatment. Apply sunscreen when you are outdoors. Sun exposure can lead to complications after the procedure and decrease the effectiveness of the procedure.
You should also avoid tanning your skin or use any creams that darken your skin. If required, our doctors may advise you to use bleach if you have tanned your skin recently.
If you take any medications, confirm with your doctor if they can hinder the process. Any blood thinning such as aspirin should be avoided.
If you haven’t shaved your hair, you will start by trimming it to a few millimeters. Next, our doctors will apply a topical numbing cream to the target area for about 30 minutes. This will help reduce the stings from laser pulses. Additionally, they may apply a cooling gel to reduce side effects, ensure proper light penetration and protect your skin.
The laser will be adjusted according to the color and thickness of your hair and skin. The handheld laser device will be pressed against your skin. The laser beam will target the hair follicles and damage them through its heat. You may feel a sting when the laser beam hits your hair and, also feel a cooling sensation from the gel.
Post Procedural Care
Following the treatment, you will notice redness and swelling. However, that isn’t concerning. You will be given ice packs to use on the target area. If your doctor notices a reaction, they will immediately apply an anti-inflammatory lotion.
Take care of the target area between sessions. It will look sunburned so use cool compresses or moisturizes. If you want to go out use makeup to cover the redness. Avoid sun exposure, use a broad-spectrum sunscreen, and avoid tanning.
Results of Laser Hair Removal at REPC Dubai
You will not see instant results. Hair will shed over a period of weeks across your sessions.
You will require repeated treatment as hair growth is a process. Laser hair removal is the most effective on hair follicles that are in the anagen (new growth) stage.
Though, the results may differ from person to person. Some people may witness complete riddance of unwanted hair for months or even years. However, hair growth is a cyclic process so when it grows, it is lighter and thinner. Hair will regrow if the hair follicle is just damaged and not destroyed. However, our skilled doctors can implement that the hair follicle is rather destroyed so that there is no regrowth.
If you want long term results with no hair regrowth, you will also require additional maintenance sessions.

The cost of the procedure can depend on various factors. These include, the size of the target area, the number of sessions required and the time spent on treating the target area. Consult our doctors to devise your treatment plan and know the total cost of all sessions combined.
You may feel irritation, swelling and redness right after your sessions. However, these are temporary side effects. They can disappear after a few hours or days. Ice packs can help contain redness and irritation.
Other risks include skin color change and blisters. These are rare but can occur to people with darker skin. If you do not avoid the sun before and after your treatment, you may experience skin lightening in the target area.
Very rarely there will be excessive hair growth on the treated area and the treated hair will become grey.
You can get Laser Hair Removal on almost all body parts including the stomach and back. However, you are not recommended to have it on tattooed skin and around the eyes. This includes the eyebrows and eyelids as there is a huge risk of injury if the laser comes near the eye.
If laser destroys the hair follicle, there will be no hair regrowth. However, if the laser only damages the hair follicle, hair growth can recur. Therefore, it is possible to remove all hair but only electrolysis is FDA-approved for permanent hair removal.
Hence, you will require several sessions of laser treatments to get rid of all your hair permanently.
You can last up to one or two years after getting proper treatment. Though you will require maintenance sessions to make it last longer.
Laser hair removal works well on the body. You may see hair growth during the sessions but once they are complete, you will notice no hair for years.
Reduced facial hair regrowth can be long lasting not permanent. You may require yearly touchup treatments to keep the regrowth at bay.
