In this blog, we will try to clear all doubts, queries, and misconceptions that you might have so you can make an independent, well-informed decision. 

About Laser Hair Removal

If you want to get rid of unwanted body hair in a quick, easy process- laser treatments are the perfect option for you. They’re speedy, precise, works for whole body parts. and permanent (if done from right from expert technicians). 

Many people have unwanted hair. It’s common on the upper lip, chin, cheeks, back, legs, bikini line fingers, feet, and toes. Laser hair removal is the process of hair removal by means of exposure to laser light. The way it works is by destroying hair from the roots itself, inhibiting the hair’s ability to grow without disrupting or damaging the skin’s surface. The laser is attracted to the hair’s pigment making it a highly accurate and comfortable hair removal method.


This is also one of the major benefits that Laser Hair Removal offers. Where other methods remove hair only from the surface, laser targets hair roots making this permanent and convenient.  

Traditionally, laser hair removal worked only on fair skin. The reason is that laser removal worked by targeting the hair roots and destroying them. The laser identified hair roots from the darker pigment in hair, so it would be harder to differentiate hair roots in darker skin types. With the outdated technique, the laser would not precisely target the roots due to the presence of melanin (found in brown/tanned skin). However, with the advancement in technology, the precision and accuracy of laser machines have increased exponentially providing amazing results on all types of skin as well as hair.

Laser hair removal in Nepal has become popular because of its speed and efficacy. However, the efficiency is dependent upon the skill and experience of the laser operator, and the choice and availability of different laser technologies used for the procedure.

Optimal Process of Laser Hair Removal

Pre-TreatmentFirst, your skin and hair type will be assessed through consultation and tests. Once that is assessed, a certain laser type will be recommended for you. The consultation will also determine how many sessions you might need to remove it completely. 

Before conducting laser, hair needs to have grown on your body. So, waxing or epilating is not suggested before your session. Generally, shaving is suggested one day before the treatment. 


Once the hairs have grown to an optimum length, the treatment begins.  A numbing cream is generally used on the skin to avoid any pain. Some gels are also applied to protect the outer layer of the skin. The Laser Machine is then adjusted to match your skin type, and the process of targeting hair follicles to remove them is begun.

Nowadays, lasers use a wide beam which allows the removal of multiple hair follicles at the same time. This has drastically reduced the time required for laser treatment. 


Ice Packs and other soothing gels can be provided after the treatment to help protect the skin better. Generally. multiple sessions conducted within a span of 6 months is required to get rid of all hair permanently and ensure no hair regrowth. 

The reason that multiple sessions are required is that our hair is in a continuous growth cycle. This means that some hairs are naturally falling out every time. So to ensure every hair is targeted, multiple laser sessions are done to catch hair removal in all phases. 

 You will be advised to avoid direct sun, exposure to chemicals, and swimming right after laser to get the best results as the skin will be slightly sensitive after the treatment. A personalized post-treatment plan is provided to you. A good follow up ensures the best results of Laser Hair Removal. 

Due to the different precautions involved during, before, and after treatment, winter is also considered to be a great time for Laser Hair removal. To know more about why winter is also known as the Laser season, read the best time for laser hair removal.

Current Scenario of Laser Hair Removal in Nepal

Laser Hair Removal in Nepal has become extremely popular in Nepal, and many women including various celebrities have switched to this method. The reason is because of the ease and comfort it offers due to the advancement in technology. 

These days, powerful laser machines are available which work quickly providing smooth skin. The advanced machines also work on all skin types and hair types including tanned or brown skin, and thin or fine hair. 

You will easily find many skincare centers providing Laser Hair Removal in Nepal. However, this does not mean that all those centers provide the best treatment. Although the quality of lasers in Nepal has been improving, there are only a handful that provides the top-class treatment.

That’s why we advise you to do a good amount of research before making your decision. Here are some things we advise before choosing a good laser hair removal center in Nepal:

  • Reputation: Check about the reputation of the center. What do other people say about the clinic?
  • Machine: Find out the Laser Machine that will be used. Is it high quality and internationally recommended
  • Clients:  Look out for Past customers’ experience and testimonials. What do they say about their treatment
  • Experience: Know about the experience of the doctor who will be performing your treatment. Has he/she done this before, qualified and reputed for laser treatment? 

Laser Hair Removal Side Effects

Side effects of laser vary with skin type, hair color, treatment plan and pre-treatment, and post-treatment care.  Most commonly observed laser hair removal side effects include:

  • The skin might appear slightly red immediately after the treatment
  • There might be the appearance of mild bumps around the hair follicles
  • Temporary Colour (Pigment) change in the skin may occur
  • There might be mild irritation in the skin, causing the formation of temporary blisters, dryness or scars

To minimize the side effects and get the best results, some pre-treatment and post-treatment care should be followed. These are:

  1. Avoid Sun-Exposure
    For both before and after the treatment, direct sunlight should be avoided. This is to avoid tanning before the treatment and protect the skin after the treatment. Use good quality SPF at all times for best results.
  2. No Tanning Beds
    Laser Removal is not advised immediately after you have undergone a fake tan. You will be advised to wait until the tan fades for optimum results.
  3. Hair Removal Before Laser
    Waxing or Epilating is not suggested before the treatment. Generally, you will be advised to shave before the day of the treatment, or the doctor might suggest some other technique according to your skin.
  4. Avoid swimming or exposure to harsh chemicals
    Since the skin is little sensitive immediately after the treatment, avoid exposure to harsh chemicals like when in swimming.

As said earlier, these risks vary a lot according to your skin and hair type. It becomes therefore important to contact the right laser hair reduction provider, as they will give you the best advice, pre and post-treatment care tips. They will also be able to clear all doubts you have and enable you to carry out the procedure with more confidence.
