How Technology Work?

 

Laser hair removal is a non-intrusive treatment involving an intense laser light (IPL) or diffrent types of laser (Diode, Nd:Yag), penetrating into and below the dermal layer where it is absorbed by the pigment in the hair (melanin).

 

The melanin absorbs the light and heats up. This heat damages the hair follicle without hurting the surrounding tissue. The damaged hair follicle stops producing hair or replaces thick adult hair with a fine, light-colored hair (vellus hair).

 

Laser hair removal is carried out by our fully trained laser hair removal technicians with an European Medical Doctor Degree.

  • What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is a quick, outpatient procedure in which uses powerful laser energy to prevent hair growth. It works by emitting a laser that passes harmlessly through the patient’s skin and into the hair follicle. The targeted hair follicle is then heated and damaged, thereby inhibiting any future hair growth.

 

  • What kind of laser do you use?

We use a PB Diode Laser 808nm witch is the world’s most advanced treatment for effective removal of unwanted hair. The Diode is a state-of-the-art system specially designed to remove unwanted hair faster, with less discomfort and more reliability than others.

 

  • How does Laser Hair Removal Work?

A laser produces a beam of highly concentrated light. The light emitted by the Diode laser is well absorbed by the pigment located in the hair follicles. During the procedure, the laser pulses for a fraction of a second, long enough to heat up the hair and significantly impede the follicles ability to re-grow.

 

  • Will it hurt?

NO. It will not hurt due to the state of the art technology that we use has thermal electric, water and air cooling  function with sapphire contact cooling for laser head assures safe and comfortable treatement. 

 

  • Are there any side effects?

The appearance of the treated area immediately following treatment will vary from patient to patient depending on the extent of the procedure and skin type. Side effects, if any, are minor. They may include redness and swelling around the hair follicle, which are, in fact desired clinical results and indicate that the follicle has responded to the treatment.

 

  • Should I do anything before my laser treatment?

YES. No sun exposure. Shaving or trimming is permitted; however, tweezing, threading, sugaring and waxing should not be done. Tell us about any new medication, particularly antibiotics that have photosensitive warning on the bottle or of any changes in your health history.

 

  • Will the hair grow back?

It is important to know that the hairs in active growth phase are most treated by the laser. As hairs grow in different phases, more than one treatment will be necessary to achieve the best results. A minimum of 6 treatments are necessary for long-term reduction. Some hair follicles are very stubborn and can only be minimized.

 

  • How many treatments will I need?

A minimum of 6 treatments are necessary for long-term reduction in females and a minimum of 8-10 treatments are necessary for long-term reduction in men.

 

  • How long will each treatment take?

Depending on the area(s) being treated it can take anywhere from 15 minutes to 45 minutes for larger areas.

 

  • How long do I have to wait between treatments?

Treatments are typically performed at 4-12 week intervals for optimal results. The treatment intervals will vary depending on age, gender and the area of the body being treated. It is very important for maximum results to follow your laser hair removal regime.

 

  • What should I expect immediately after treatment?

Possible redness and swelling for up to 3 days. Hair will begin to fall out, can take up to 10-14 days (may appear that the hair is growing more rapidly, but the hair that has been treated is actually falling out). Avoid direct sun exposure for 7 days after your last treatment. Avoid the sun and tanning beds during all of your ENTIRE laser sessions. If you are in the sun, wear a full spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30+. Discontinue waxing or tweezing after you begin your laser treatments.

HISTORY

How hair growth cycles affect laser hair removal?

 

Age, sex, weight, metabolism, hormones, gentics, ethnicity, medications, body location and

seasonality all affect hair growth. At any one time hairs from various parts of the body are

at one of 3 cyclic phases (Anagen, Catagen or Telogen). This cycling prevents all body hair

falling out at the same time and taking months to grow back.

 

Phase 1 – Anagen

   Hair’s active growth phase; Anagen, can last several years. 80-85% of hair is

   in this phase at any given time. During Anagen the hair has abundant melanin.

Phase 2 – Catagen

   The Catagen or transition / regressive phase lasts about 2 – 4 weeks.

   In this phase hair stops growing but is not yet shed. About 3-4 % of body hair is in this phase.

Phase 3 – Telogen

   Lasting weeks to months, the Telogen or resting phase is when hair falls out and

   a new hair begins to form. At least 10-15% of body hair is in this phase.

 

Catagen or Telogen phase hair may not be fully destroyed during treatment as the hair follicle is technically no longer attached to the root.

 

Anagen phase hair is ideal for laser removal. Because only 80 – 85% of hair follicles are in the Anagen phase at the same time, multiple treatments are usually needed to remove all hair from each area. Depending on the body area being treated, most people require 6 treatments, spaced 4-6 weeks apart.

 

Laser hair removal can be used for both facial and body hair on both men and women. It is also an effective treatment for ingrown hairs. No more irritating skin and red bumps caused by those ingrown hairs we are all affected by and you will never need to shave or wax ever again.

The effectiveness of laser hair removal

 

An 80% – 100% hair reduction in hair growth is possible. Each successive laser hair removal treatment will result in a reduction in hair growth. Hair will grow progressively slower, lighter and finer with each treatment.

 

Improvements may be seen after only one treatment, but repeat treatments are usually

required to achieve desired results. It generally takes around 6 treatments to affect all the

hair follicles in each area, spaced 4-6 weeks apart. The treated area will “shed” hair over the

next 3-4 weeks. 

 

Results may vary depending on individual genetic factors including:

 

  • Hair color: Lasers are most effective for dark hair

  • Hair thickness: Thicker hairs respond better

  • Skin color: Dark skin may need more sessions

  • Area: Arm, leg, underarm & bikini area respond (facial hair- chin & lip, are more resistant)

Laser hair removal is a non-intrusive treatment involving an intense laser light penetrating into and below the dermal layer where it is absorbed by the pigment in the hair (melanin).

 

The melanin absorbs the light and heats up.

 

This heat damages the hair follicle without hurting the surrounding tissue.

 

The damaged hair follicle stops producing hair or replaces thick adult hair with a fine, light-colored hair (vellus hair).

 

 

The laser works by disabling hair in the active growth phase (Anagen) at the time of treatment.

 

Because not all hairs are in this stage during treatment, laser hair removal normally requires several sessions to achieve the desired hair reduction results; typically with 6 sessions per area.
