Be Summer Ready with Kaya Skin Clinic’s Laser Hair Removal!
So, what am I talking about? Well, laser hair removal, of course.
Hair Removal is a time-consuming daily routine for many people. While traditional methods such as waxing, tweezing and shaving are effective for removing the hair, they do not provide long-term solutions for hair removal – never mind all those bumps, nicks and ingrown hairs! Over a decade ago, technological advancements led to the creation of a hair removal system that not only eliminated these annoying problems, but also provided a long-term hair reduction solution: laser hair removal. Laser hair removal is one of the fastest-growing methods of ridding the body of unwanted hair. The appeal of laser hair removal stems from its effectiveness, efficiency and convenience. It can be performed virtually anywhere on the body where you experience unwanted hair growth. Another reason for its popularity is that laser hair removal can result in permanent reduction of the hair.
The laser works by killing the root of the hair over a few visits. It beams highly concentrated light into hair follicles. Pigment in the follicles absorb the light. That destroys the hair.
After a few sessions, the root doesn’t grow back and, voila, hair stops growing. When searching for a clinic, there is no need to pay the highest price, though it is important to find a clinic that has quality equipment and experienced laser technicians and the laser hair removal at the Kaya Skin Clinic is one of the most well renowned.
To answer all of your most pressing questions, I turned to Dr. Sejal Shah, Dermatologist, Kaya Skin Clinic. And since I too spend lots of time in the pool during the summer, the lure of low-maintenance grooming was too good to pass up. So here I am in consultation with Dr. Sejal Shah to clear all my apprehensions and bust some common myths about laser hair removal.

Laser hair removal and electrolysis at Kaya
Laser hair removal and electrolysis provide the closest thing to permanent hair removal. ‘Laser’ refers to an intense pulse of light, which means it carries a risk of burns and should only be done by a certified expert. Electrolysis involves inserting a fine needle into the hair shaft to destroy the hair producing cells. Kaya offers best services supervised by dermatologists who customise the laser service to suit your skin and hair type. To know more visit: here

Right after my consultation with the doctor, I decided to go in for a patch test on my hand for the laser hair removal, to check my skin sensitivity and pain endured.
The laser equipment is adjusted according to the color, thickness, and location of your hair being treated as well as your skin color.
Next, the Kaya expert used the hand held Laser probe and ran it in circular motions over the area – where a cool gel had been applied,on the patch on my hand, and as she did I could feel my skin begin to heat up.
After we were done with the laser hair removal on the patch, the gel is wiped off with a tissue and some ice is applied to the area to soothe it. Then she applied a Skin Protection Cream to the lased area, to soothe the area and ease any discomfort.This cream needs to be applied for 3-4 days after the procedure.
I wouldn’t say it’s completely painless because there is a prickly sensation as the laser goes over your skin, and it can get hot. But I found it to be a much more comfortable way to remove hair than waxing.
After I was done with the patch test, except for a bit of redness on my skin which disappeared an hour after my treatment, I had no sensitivity in the area.
They told me that in case in a day or two afterward, if the treated area of the skin looks and feel like it’s sunburned, applying cool compresses and moisturizers helps.
