Many people deal with the problem of unwanted hair growth on different parts of their bodies. Right from using chemical-filled products to getting expensive and painful waxing, threading, and sugaring treatments, they have to take great pains in order to get rid of these hair and get smooth, silky skin. Some resort to bearing uncomfortable razor bumps from shaving every other day for this purpose. With advanced laser hair removal treatment in Dubai at Aesthetics International, you can now get rid of this problem for once and all and flaunt clear, smooth and hairless skin in no time.
Laser hair removal treatment is recognized as one of the best techniques for removing unwanted hair from the body. This procedure is easy, quick and highly effective. It uses a high-intensity beam of light which penetrates into the skin in order to disable the growth of hair follicles.

This procedure, and all other surgical and non-surgical treatments we offer, are performed under the supervision of highly experienced and professional doctors who believe in walking the extra mile to ensure our patients get the desired results.
Laser hair removal is a full-body treatment.

Laser hair removal is an FDA-approved treatment that offers a long-term solution for the problem that many people face – the growth of unwanted body hair. Earlier, this treatment was only suitable for people having light skin and dark hair. However, the advancement in technology has made this treatment suitable for all. So, regardless of your skin tone and hair color, you can now get laser hair removal treatment. However, pregnant women are generally advised against getting this treatment. Furthermore, if you are taking acne treatment, laser hair removal treatment may not be recommended for you. People who have had skin cancer and keloid scars are also not suitable to get laser hair removal treatment.
Laser Hair Removal Techniques
At Aesthetics International, we have 3 different laser machines, each of which is targeted at treating a particular hair type or body area. Before beginning the treatment course, our experts conduct a patch test; analyzing your skin type and your hair growth pattern in order to identify which treatment mode will work best for you. Our machines include:
Cynosure ELITE: This is a top-end machine that offers painless and highly effective results. A bigger spout means the treatment time is faster, and it blows out cold air, which means we don’t use any icing methods (these are a thing of the past).
Cynosure Nd YAG Laser: This also blows out cold air but is most effective for those with dark, thick hair.
Before the treatment starts, an initial consultation session takes place between the doctor and the patient. During this session, the doctor will inspect the patient’s skin, hair, and take into consideration various other factors to ensure you are an ideal candidate for this treatment. They will also ask you for your medical history and your expectations from this treatment. If you have any doubts or concerns, feel free to share them with your doctor to gain a better understanding of the procedure and its outcome.
It is recommended to stay protected against the sun and avoid tanning beds a few weeks prior to getting the treatment. If you spend a long time under the sun or get tanned, the treatment won’t produce the desired results, and there can be side effects as well. Shave the treatment site at least two to three days before the procedure. If the hair is greater than the length of a grain of rice, the treatment won’t work effectively.
Laser hair removal involves the usage of laser pulses. With the help of these pulses, light is emitted into the skin that helps aid the process of damaging both the hair root and follicle. The hair growth is stopped once the root and follicle are destroyed. Also, for laser hair removal to work, the hair needs to be targeted during an inactive growth phase.
Since individual hair grows at different rates, several treatment sessions may be required to capture every hair and remove them. First of all, the area to be treated is cleansed and some patients get a numbing gel. In the case of sensitive skin, a small area of skin is tested first. Everyone in the room wears protective eyewear during the procedure.
The skin is held taut to perform the laser hair removal procedure. The laser feels like warm pinpricks or similar to how a rubber band feels being snapped against the skin.
To prevent any possible side effects from hair removal, patients need to avoid sun exposure. So, do not use any kind of tanning equipment such as sun lamps or tanning beds. Also, strictly follow the after-care instructions of your dermatologist. It is important to note that some patients experience redness and swelling after getting laser removal treatment. This looks like a mild sunburn. Using a cool compress helps in bringing down the swelling and reduces your discomfort.
Generally, the results appear right after getting this treatment. However, the outcome varies from patient to patient. Some people get to see permanent results while others need touch-up treatment every six to twelve months. These results rely on your skin color, type, and hair type. You can make the results last with proper preparation and aftercare. You can expect to see a 10% to 25% reduction in hair after getting the first treatment.
The duration of the treatment depends on the size of the area that is treated. Usually, it takes 30 to 60 minutes per session.
Most patients need to get 2 to 6 laser treatments for hair removal. Once the treatments are finished, there is no hair on the treated skin for several months and even years. Even if hair grows back, it does in less amount. Moreover, they are finer and lighter in color.
The side effects are minimal and last for 1 to 3 days. The patient may experience discomfort, redness, and swelling. These are temporary and go within hours or sometimes in a couple of days. In very rare cases some people get burns, scars, cold sores, infections, and blisters when people fail to follow the aftercare properly. The skin color also tends to lighten or darken which returns to normal with time.
The cost of laser hair removal in Dubai varies according to your hair type and growth. Furthermore, the number of sessions required, the clinic you have selected, and the experience of the doctor are other important factors that determine the total cost of this treatment.
Yes. There are many reasons laser removal is worth it. Firstly, patients experience a permanent reduction in hair growth. Other than that, it is virtually pain-free since it is less labor-intensive. Laser hair removal treatment is time-efficient as compared to conventional hair removal methods. Lastly, even one treatment can cause a reduction in ingrown hairs.
