How does the laser treatment work?
We use an alexandrite-laser for the hair removal. It irradiates an area of your skin with light of a certain wavelength. In this process the light energy is focused on the pigments of the hair.
These pigments transform the light energy into heat. The outer layers of skin remain unaffected whereas the hair follicles heat up until they are removed permanently.
How is the treatment done?
You should not shave, pluck or wax the hair you want to be removed shortly before the treatment. The duration of the treatment depends on the size of the area to be treated. By using a larger attachment for the scanner even large body parts like your back or legs can be treated fairly quickly.
Our customers describe the laser treatment as significantly more comfortable than other methods. You have to wear safety glasses during the treatment.
How many treatments are necessary?
The laser beam can only destroy hair in its growth phase. The amount of hair in the growth phase and the duration of the recovery phase varies from body part to body part. Therefore an exact number of treatments cannot be precisely predicted.
However, experience has shown that 6-8 treatments at intervals of 4-6 weeks are usually necessary. Occasionally, e.g. for very strongly growing hair, hormonal disfunctions or hirsutism, additional treatments might be necessary.
Are there any side effects?
Directly after the treatment your skin is irritated a bit or smaller swellings may occur. But this will go away fairly quickly.
Nevertheless, you should not expose yourself to the sun before they have gone away completely.
How long does the hair removal last?
Permanent hair removal is defined as a reduction in hair growth over a period of time that lasts longer than a complete growing-cycle of a hair follicle. The number of hair is reduced with every treatment.
After you completed the laser therapy the number of hair on the treated body part will be reduced by approx. 93%. Therefore we can call our treatment a very successful method. It is assumed that roots of hair treated with laser cannot regenerate.
What else is important?
The efficiency of the treatment rises with the intensity of the haircolor. Grey, white and light blonde hair cannot be treated. The contrast in color between hair and skin should be as strong as possible. This means the relevant area of skin should not be tanned for approx. four weeks before the treatment.
Sun and solariums should definitely be avoided during the period of the laser treatment. Furthermore, medication that increases skin sensitivity to light (e.g. St John’s wort and antibiotics) must not be taken.
