Are you unhappy with the results of shaving, waxing or tweezing for removing unwanted hair from your body? Worry not! You can now opt for laser hair removal, which is considered to be much more effective than traditional methods. Laser hair removal is a very common cosmetic procedure being undertaken by both men and women alike. Why women opt for laser hair treatment is easily understood, but some eyebrows raise at the mention of ‘men’. Well, males with a career in modeling or bodybuilding do prefer laser hair removal mainly because it is a long-term solution.
How does laser hair treatment work?
In this treatment, unwanted hair is removed using concentrated laser light. With the help of a long pulsed machine, light of a particular wavelength is targeted towards hair follicles. This light generates heat preventing the follicles from producing hair. What really happens is that the pigments present in your follicles absorb this light, which results in the destruction of the hair.
Benefits of laser hair removal
Lasers are quite effective in removing unwanted hair from areas such as the legs, face, arms, underarms and other body parts. The various benefits of laser hair removal include the following:
- Precision: Melanin is the pigment that gives our skin/hair its colour. This means the more melanin, darker the hair; less melanin, lighter coloured hair. Because LASERs act on melanin, it can precisely target dark coarse hairs selectively without causing any damage to the surrounding skin.
- Speed: Each pulse of laser takes less than a fraction of a second, during which many hairs are treated together. The laser is capable of treating an area which is the size of a quarter within a second. Areas such as the upper lips may take as less as a minute to be treated, while large areas may require more time.
- Predictability: The results of laser hair removal are highly predictable and most people see visible results in six to eight treatment sessions.
How is the treatment conducted?
- Your hair, which will get treated, is usually trimmed/shaved to a few millimeters above your skin surface. The laser device is adjusted according to the colour, thickness and location of your hair
- You will be made to wear proper eye protection, depending on the type of laser being used The outer layers of your skin are also protected using a cold gel or a cooling device. This helps the laser to penetrate your skin. After this, a full pulse light is exposed to the concerned area
- After completion of the process, you will be given ice packs, cold water and anti-inflammatory creams to ease the discomfort you may feel
- You must wear a sunscreen of minimum SPF 30+ before stepping out in the sun
- For a few days after a laser hair removal session, your treated skin area may look and feel like sunburn. You need to apply moisturizers for healing
LASER hair removal is not advised to pregnant or breastfeeding women.

Kindler’s Syndrome is a rare skin blistering disease named after Theresa Kindler. It is a kind of skin complication which forms skin blisters and lesions on the mucous membranes. This can happen in any part of your body but mainly concentrates on the area where you have experienced any frictions, bruises or minor trauma, especially on the feet and the hands. In some rare occurrences of Kindler’s Syndrome, it can develop on the internal organs like the food pipe, stomach or the respiratory tract.
This disease generally occurs if you suffer from a disorder called autosomal recessive. It means that you may have inherited an anomalous gene from each parent. It usually happens during childhood and reduces as you age.
Some of the symptoms of Kindler syndrome are:
- Blisters occurring on the body in your infancy and periods of early childhood.
- Slowly you will observe altered pigmentation and cutaneous atrophy (A severe dermal condition).
- Blistering due to certain skin trauma appearing on the hands and feet.
- Some observe abnormalities like dental or ophthalmic
- The growth of actinic Keratoses
Kindler’s Syndrome requires a specialized dermatologist for the treatment. In some countries, diagnosis involves skin biopsy. It involves undergoing Immunofluorescence Antigen Mapping or transmission of Electron Microscopy. Blood testing of genes is slowly being developed as a diagnostic test.
Other treatments involve:
- A healthy and nutritious diet to heal the disease from within.
- Maintaining a good dental hygiene.
- Use sunscreen with a high protein formula.
- Avoid exposure to the sun as much as possible.
