Laser hair removal is a safe and effective method to eliminate unwanted hair for a long period of time.
It is performed via a targeted thermolysis procedure, which includes raising the hair follicle temperature to about 60 degrees Celsius (140 degrees Fahrenheit). As a result, the hair follicle root is destroyed by heat, while generating minimal heating of surrounding tissues.
The laser emits the light pulse at a particular wavelength which is selectively absorbed by melanin (a hair pigment) contained in the hair follicles. The procedure does not harm the skin, thanks to the laser head which has a special cooling system that provides an additional analgesic effect, minimizing inconvenience and discomfort.
WHAT AREAS ARE TREATED BY LASER?
Laser hair removal procedures can treat the following areas:
– Bikini and armpits: for these zones the laser hair removal is the most effective, with the least number of procedures required.
– Leg-area hair removal: full legs, lower legs, lower legs and knees, knees, hips.
– Hand-area hair removal: full hands, forearms, arms, hands, wrists, fingers.
– Facial areas: upper lip, chin, nose bridge and root (area between the eyebrows), eyebrows, forehead, cheeks, temples, ears and neck.
– Other areas: white belly line, chest, abdomen, cleavage, umbilical and pelvic regions, breasts, back, shoulders and buttocks.
DOES LASER EPILATION REMOVE INGROWN HAIR?
Yes, laser hair removal is the only existing method that effectively removes ingrown hair, regardless of the area of application. After the 2nd or 3rd procedure, you will experience noticeable results.
LASER HAIR REMOVAL – HOW CHEAP IS IT?
The price (cost) of laser hair removal depends on the area being treated; as a rule, the larger is the treatment zone, the higher is the price of the treatment. Compared with the other depilation methods (which produce only a temporary effect), the laser hair removal procedure costs more, but the results last for years. Also, if you want to receive a treatment for the laser hair removal DC (metro or surrounding areas), the price is usually much higher than if you do it at the Biolux Skin Care Medi Spa.
LASER HAIR REMOVAL – IS IT PAINFUL?
Many salons and clinics which perform laser hair removal claim that this is an absolutely painless procedure. Although the pain sensitivity of each person is different, in general it can be said that the laser hair removal causes unpleasant sensations rather than painful ones. If the patient does not want to experience any pain or discomfort, the laser specialist will apply an anesthetic cream. With each subsequent procedure, the thickness of the hair decreases, and the pain sensation decreases as well.
LASER HAIR REMOVAL – IS IT SUITABLE FOR MEN?
Yes, it is a very popular procedure among men. The main advantage is that the laser can quickly process large areas, for example, the chest and/or back. Also, if you wish you can choose instead of completely removing the hair, to only reduce its density and growth rate.
PERMANENT HAIR REMOVAL – IS IT A MYTH?
No, with the help of the laser hair removal, it is possible to remove the unwanted hair for good, if indeed (as a prerequisite) the patient will undergo a full course and will perform the supporting procedure 1 time after a 1-2 year period.
ANY FOLLOW-ON PERIOD OR CONSTRAINTS?
No, the patient can immediately return to his usual lifestyle activities. We recommend using sunscreen for several days after depilation (sometimes using panthenol, if the patient has a very sensitive skin).
UNWANTED FACIAL HAIR REMOVAL
Most women do not want to shave the facial hair for fear that it later they will become thicker and more noticeable. Thus, in such cases, we recommend using the “exclusive” laser epilation method that will help you get rid of noticeable mustache or cuff hair on your face.
