    Unwanted hair is a major issue for many young people. Shaving or waxing the hair is tedious process, and can also be painful at times. Due to its many benefits, laser hair removal has become very popular amongst youngsters. In many cases, after three to eight sessions, permanent hair loss is observed. Recent years have seen an increase in the number of laser hair removal procedures performed.

    What is the theory behind laser hair removal?
    Laser technology is based on highly concentrated rays. These rays are concentrated on a specific part of your skin from where you wish to remove the hair. The highly concentrated light is directed to particular hair follicles in order to remove them. Although, permanent results or results that last a lifetime are never guaranteed, cases have been observed wherein after a few sessions, complete hair loss is observed.
    Many types of laser removal procedures are available, among these, Neodymium YAG, diode, alexandrite, and intense pulsed light sources are well known.

    Why should you choose laser hair removal?
    Unwanted hair on your face, underarms, legs, arms or any other area can be easily removed using this procedure. Laser hair removal procedures offer you with a healthy and smooth skin free of unwanted hair. The laser used for hair removal target dark and bristly hairs without damaging the surrounding areas. Known for its speed, laser hair procedure has the ability to treat small areas in approximately one minute and less. These small areas include the upper lip region.

    How long does it take?
    Laser removal method is performed by skilled doctors. The doctors need to decide how many days and sittings will it take to get the procedure done depending upon the growth of hair in that specific area and also how much area of your skin is to be covered. Once the procedure is done, one may need to get it done in few years again depending upon the regrowth of hair on his/her body.

    Difficulties of laser hair removal procedure
    1. Laser hair procedures can at times cause hyper pigmentation of skin or darkening of skin. It can also cause hypo pigmentation, which causes lightening of skin colour at certain regions.
    2. Some people experience itchiness after the procedure has been completed.
    3. A major disadvantage of this treatment is that it can be quite expensive and unaffordable for the common people.
    4. It may leave scars or skin infections if not done by skilled or accomplished doctors.

    Laser hair treatment is effective and comparatively more efficient on people who have light skin and dark hair. Generally, laser hair surgeries are done to remove unwanted hair on back, face, chest, neck, bikini area, shoulders, upper lip, chin etc. For successful results, one should get this procedure performed from a skilled doctor. If not done properly, it will leave marks/scars and damage your body.

    What is Razor Bumps (Pseudofolliculitis Barbae)?

    It is an inflammatory reaction to the hair shaft entering the skin, most common in blacks who shave regularly.

    Who gets razor bumps?

    About 50% of black males are said to be affected. Other races can also be affected. Though the condition is most commonly reported in men, women who remove unwanted hair also suffer from this condition.

    What causes razor bumps?

    The condition is caused by both genetic factors and various hair removal methods.

    Genetic factors:

    Curved hair follicles and curly hair

    A defect in the gene for the hair protein keratin 6hf

    Hair removal methods may cause razor bumps by either creating a sharp hair tip that re-enters the skin away from the hair pore (extrafollicular penetration) or by the hair shaft breaking off at different lengths and piercing the follicle from within the skin (transfollicular penetration). An inflammatory reaction is then set up in response to the hair fragments lying in the skin. The following methods may cause razor bumps:






    Ingrown hairs

    Red, skin coloured or dark bumps

    Bumps containing pus

    What are the complications of razor bumps?

    Pigmentary problems (darkening of the area most common)


    Abscess formation

    Psychological problems

    Razor bumps are most common on the beard, however they have been reported to occur on the pubic area, legs and scalp.

    The Treatment-

    There are several treatment options to deal with razor bumps already present. They include:





    Alpha-hydroxy acids

    Chemical peels


    Prevention of Razor Bumps:

    It is true to say that 'prevention is better than cure'. Here are the preventions-

    Laser hair removal is the best method of removing unwanted hair in individuals affected with this condition. The laser device is programmed to selectively target the pigment in the hair follicle, destroying it, while leaving the skin intact.

    Electrical clippers are found by many to cause less bumps than razors. If one must shave it is important to avoid a close shave to help prevent razor bumps. The following is a guide to safer shaving methods:

    Brush hairs with polyester sponge before shaving.

    Wash beard, use pre-shave cream or gel.

    Avoid double and triple blade razors.

    Shave in the direction of hair growth.

    Do not pull the skin taut.

    Use a sharp blade, rinse after each stroke.

    Apply a cold compress after shaving, then a soothing aftershave preparation.

    Clipping hairs with a small pair of facial scissors is an option for women with few unwanted hairs.

    Chemical depilatories (hair removal creams) are another option for hair removal.

    Electrolysis is a permanent method of hair removal but requires several sessions. It is operator dependent and can cause bumps and scarring. Waxing and tweezing also have the potential to cause bumps.

    Eflornithine hydrochloride is a cream that slows the growth of hair and therefore can be used in combination with a hair removal method. It is marketed for women with unwanted facial hair.

    Anti-androgen drugs can be used in females who have hirsutism (male pattern hair growth e.g. beard hairs)

    Prp is a latest, state-of-the-art technology that employs non-surgical methods to stimulate hair growth in case of hair loss. Advancements in research have enabled scientists to make new inroads in the field of wound and tissue healing. The result of these researches is prp, which is a natural way to rejuvenate your scalp, skin and stimulate your hair growth.

    How prp works?
    The presence of mesenchymal stem cells and autologous blood products in human blood contain specific growth factors that assist in tissue regeneration and healing. Prp has been used to heal skin and wounds for over two decades now. Apart from this it finds use in oral surgery, cosmetic surgery and neurosurgery as well. It is also the promising treatment to promote hair growth.

    -it is a progressive healing treatment that doesn't require surgery
    -simple, rapid and highly effective system
    -autologous (from patient's own blood)
    -the system is biocompatible and xeno-free, so there shouldn't be any safety concerns
    -increase in the concentration of platelets can be observed
    -it helps in the elimination of undesired erythrocytes, which significantly decrease the fibroblast proliferation
    -contains growth factors that help in the stimulation of growth of the hair follicles
    -can be performed preoperatively, intraoperatively, or post operatively

    The science of prp
    There are special cells called platelets used in prp, that have been theoretically proved to stimulate hair follicles growth by stimulating stem cells and other important cells in the ecosystem of the follicles. They are instrumental in promoting the healing ability and regeneration of cells, formation of new cells and response to injury. Prp stimulates inactive or newly implanted hair follicles, and makes them active by inducing them into a growth phase.

    Platelets are known to contain various structures, which are crucial for blood clotting and cell regeneration, and are released during the repair process by the body. Some of these structures are: glycogen, alpha granules and lysosomes.

    Who should not have prp treatment?
    Those with heavy drug and smoking issue should avoid prp. Also those who drink a lot of alcohol should avoid prp. Those suffering from platelets related ailments, sepsis, chronic liver disease, thrombocytopenia, hyperfibrinogenemia, systemic disorders and cancer should also stay away from prp.

    At length, prp is a boon for all those who aren't fans of surgery or the ones who prefer a more aggressive but non-surgical approach for treatment to their ailments. The results might vary from patient to patient, but it is certainly one of the most promising technologies to stimulate hair growth and rejuvenate your skin, and the results are quite convincing. So decide wisely!
