Laser Hair Removal
Nd: YAG laser efficiently removes unwanted hair on all body parts. It is suitable for treatment of all skin types and has a proven safety for people with darker skin.
Each hair goes through three distinct phases: 1 - active growth /anagen/; 2 - Reversal /katagen/; 3 - rest /telogen/ .This is important to know because the laser light permanently destroys hair follicles which currently are in active development phase during the procedure. Unfortunately this is only about 15% of the hair in the treated area. Therefore a series of procedures are required / 6 to 10, depending on the area / to achieve lasting results. Procedures are performed at intervals of 4 to 6 weeks.
In order to have an effective procedure, the hair in the treated area should not be removed at least 2-3 weeks before the Laser Epilation.The hair must be repaired only by shaving, haircut or by depilatory cream days before the procedure.
The laser light is absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicles and converted to heat energy, which leads to their destruction.
After Epilation a slight redness of the skin might be observed, which gradually hushes within 10 to 15 minutes.
