How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

Laser Hair Removal works by targeting the hair follicles beneath the surface of the skin, without causing any damage to the surrounding tissues.

The laser emits a concentrated beam of light that is absorbed by the pigment, or melanin, present in the hair follicles. As the energy is absorbed, it transforms into heat, which damages the follicles and inhibits their ability to produce new hair. This process leads to a significant reduction in hair growth.

However, in areas with slower hair growth, like the back, the treatment may only be necessary every 12 to 16 weeks.

After Laser Hair Removal

After undergoing laser hair removal, it is common to experience redness and swelling in the treated area for a few hours. 

To alleviate any discomfort, you can apply ice to the affected area. In the event of a skin reaction immediately following the procedure, the doctor may administer a steroid cream to alleviate the symptoms. 

It is important to refrain from sun exposure and tanning beds for six weeks or as advised by your doctor. It is also recommended to use a daily broad-spectrum SPF30 sunscreen.

During Laser Hair Removal

When the doctor activates the laser, it will go through your skin and reach the hair follicles. The strong heat from the laser will damage hair follicles, stopping hair from growing. You might feel a warm pinpoint feeling during the process.

If you are treating a small area, like the upper lip, it will probably only take a few minutes. However, if you are treating a bigger or multiple areas, like the legs or back, it might take longer.

Is Laser Hair Removal Permanent?

Individuals who undergo laser hair removal treatments can expect the results to last for several months or years. Depending on your skin tone and hair type, unwanted hair can be permanently removed with regular maintenance [1].

Even though laser hair removal can achieve long-term hair reduction, it is important to note that one session is not sufficient to for permanent hair removal. Also, hairs do not fall out immediately after treatment, but you will shed them over the next few days. Do not mistake this as continued hair growth.

Some common side effects of laser hair removal include temporary redness, mild itching in the treated area. These effects are usually mild and subside within a few hours or days following the treatment.

To minimize the side effects of laser hair removal, follow the aftercare instructions provided by your doctor.

These may include avoiding sun exposure, using soothing creams or ice packs, avoiding hot showers, and avoiding tight clothing or excessive friction in the treated area.

Different Laser Hair Removal Machines

There are several different laser hair removal machines available in the market, each with its own set of features and technologies. At V Medical Aesthetics, Nd:YAG Laser is our choice of laser as it is suitable for all patients with light or tan skin [2].

Nd:YAG Laser

Nd:YAG Laser is a form of laser hair removal for treating patients with darker skin.

It emits a 1064-nm wavelength of light that can penetrate even deeper into the skin, making it more effective at treating thicker hair.

This laser is also safe for use on all skin types, making it a versatile option for many people. 

Diode Laser

Diode Laser is a newer form of laser hair removal that emits a 810-nm wavelength of light, making it effective at treating coarse hair. 

It is versatile for fair to medium skin types and light to medium skin tones. 

Although it also penetrate deep into the hair follicle, but it may require more treatments for optimal outcome. 

Alexandrite Laser

Alexandrite Laser produces light at a wavelength of 755 nm, which is suitable for removing fine to medium hair.

This treatment is commonly use for treating larger body areas such as the legs, arms, and back.

However, darker skin tones should avoid this laser as it may lead to hyperpigmentation.

Ruby Laser

Ruby laser is the first laser hair removal system in the market, developed in 1960.

Although there is significant research to support its efficacy, many deem it as outdated.

It produces a shorter wavelength of 694 nm that targets melanin. However, it is not suitable for darker skin tones, as it can cause hyperpigmentation.

Laser Hair Removal vs IPL vs SHR

Laser hair removal uses a concentrated beam of laser to target the hair follicles. The pigment in the hair follicles absorbs the laser light, which damages the hair follicle and inhibits future hair growth.

  • Long-term results, permanent hair loss after several sessions
  • Targets dark, coarse hairs while sparing the surrounding skin, reducing the risk of skin damage.


Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is a light-based hair removal technique that uses broad-spectrum light to target the hair follicles.

  • Uses multiple wavelengths of light instead of a single focused beam
  • Less effective on certain hair and skin types


Super Hair Removal (SHR) is an advanced version of IPL that uses a gradual heating method to target the hair follicles. Instead of delivering high-energy pulses, SHR emits multiple low-energy pulses at a rapid rate.

  • Less effective on lighter hair
  • Requires multiple sessions

Shaving is a non-permanent hair removal method that involves cutting hair off at the skin’s surface using a razor or an electric shaver.

  • Quick and easy but provide temporary results
  • Experience skin irritation, razor bumps, or ingrown hairs 


Waxing is another non-permanent hair removal method that involves applying hot or cold wax to the skin and then removing the wax along with the unwanted hair.

at home hair removal devices

Does At-Home Laser Hair Removal Actually Work?

There are lasers available for at-home hair removal that may result in a moderate reduction of hair. However, there have not been any extensive studies comparing the effectiveness of these devices with professional laser hair removal in clinics.

Moreover, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration classifies these home laser hair removal devices as cosmetic rather than medical, leading to less scrutiny compared to other medical devices.

Currently, there is a lack of comprehensive, long-term research on the safety and effectiveness of these at-home machines.

laser hair removal before and after

Laser Hair Removal Before and After

To achieve the best results, multiple sessions are often required because hair grows in various cycles. Treated areas may not be completely hairless, however, any remaining hairs may appear lighter in colour and finer in texture.

After the treatment, the hair that was targeted will gradually shed over the following weeks, resulting in smooth and hair-free skin. You may experience a 20% decrease in hair growth within 4 to 6 weeks after each treatment.
