Best Pre-Wedding Laser Treatments for Hair Removal & Acne

A quick and effective and most importantly pain-free way to remove hair sounds like a dream. The technological advancement in laser treatments has made this dream come true. This alternative method of hair removal and acne treatment has become very popular in recent years.

Although it sounds like a dream, Laser treatment for hair removal and acne is all pure science. So, do your homework before you opt for any of these treatments, especially before your big day.

 What are the dermatologist approved laser hair removal methods?

Laser treatments for hair removal

Different laser treatments have different outcomes depending on your skin colour and hair type.  The most popular laser treatment is done using Diode laser, which is very safe on Indian skin and suitable for all skin types. If you have a darker skin tone and terminal hair Diode laser could work like a charm. Apart from costs and ultimate results, frequency and downtime of the treatment is to be considered before choosing any laser hair removal treatment.

To be honest one session is not enough for any treatment. Here is why. Hair grows in three phases – Phase I Active (anagen), Phase II Regression (catagen), and Phase III Resting (telogen). Laser treatment targets the hair in Phase I to destroy the follicle. However, all hair on our body does not grow simultaneously. This means there is some hair that could be dormant at the time of your laser session. This is why multiple sessions are required to complete a laser hair removal treatment.

You might notice redness and mild swelling after laser treatment. This is normal and your skin will settle down in a few hours. It is important to not include or overlap any other treatments such as facials or peels with laser treatment. There is minimum to no downtime and it is considered as an office or lunchtime procedure, there can however be minimum redness or irritation after the procedure but if redness persists, please visit your dermatologist immediately.

Laser treatment for Acne Scars

Laser treatment for acne scarring removes the top layer of your skin where a scar has formed and encourages new, healthy skin cells to grow. This procedure helps your skin heal and is effective in treating fine lines, open pores, and dull skin.

QswitchND: Yag laser is known for reducing pigmentation, and treating sunspots and freckles. Ablative lasers such as Erbium glass or Erbium YAG lasers treat the upper layer of skin by creating small thermal zones in the deeper layers of the skin and help replace the old skin with new radiant skin by encouraging collagen production.

While there is tremendous progress in the technology of these treatments one must have a realistic expectation from the laser treatments. Especially for acne, your scars won’t completely disappear but they can be far less visible. It is not possible to suggest an exact outcome as each treatment works differently for a different type of skin. Downtime of 6 to 8 weeks is expected for ablative treatments. Please consult your dermatologist before signing up for any laser treatments for acne scar reduction.

Microneedling with Radiofrequency is one of the most popular non-laser combination treatments available at Dr. Divya's Skin and Hair Solutions Clinic. We have the Endymed Intensif which is the world's first FDA approved insulated needle MNRF system.  This involves penetration of needle-like structure till the dermal level while radiofrequency waves are used to provide heat coagulation effect on collagen. This causes dermal remodelling and hence improves the appearance of acne scars. 

When should you start pre-wedding skincare treatments? | Dr. Divya

When should you begin your skincare treatments?

Even though the timeline of these treatments depends on the severity of the skin issue, ideally pre-wedding laser treatment should be started five to six months in advance. Any skin rejuvenation treatments take 3 to 4 months to complete the procedure and should be planned accordingly. Hair removal treatments could take even longer. Also, please remember not to overlap any treatments and plan your calendar well in advance keeping the Big Day in mind.
