Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is a hair removal procedure with the help of a special laser beam, which not only removes the upper part of the hair, but also destroys the hair follicles from the inside.
Types of lasers
At present, the next lasers are used in cosmetology for epilation:
- Alexandrite laser
This type of laser works only with very dark hair on light skin, it has a high speed and power of impact. It is not recommended to use it for swarthy, tanned skin;
- Ruby laser
Same as alexandrite, it is most effective when combining dark hair and light skin;
- Diode laser
This laser has the greatest penetrating ability; it is safe at work on a dark, tanned skin.
At the present time, the diode laser is very popular. The laser effectively affects the hair in the growth stage. Therefore, laser hair removal should be carried out with a course of several procedures with a break of 1-2 months.
Important! Two weeks before planning laser hair removal, hair can be removed only with the help of a razor. Do not use any other types of epilation.
Modern laser devices have special skin cooling nozzles that reduce the sensitivity in places of epilation, so the procedure of laser hair removal in our time has become virtually painless.
The eyes of the cosmetologist and patient are protected by special glasses.
During the procedure, the area with hair cover is affected with radiation. The timing depends on the selected area of the body. For example, the epilation of the upper lip area takes about 10-12 minutes, but the bikini area is slightly longer- about 15-17 minutes. The longest area is the hip area. A laser beam passes through the hair trunk and heats the cells containing melanin, destroying the hair bulb. The skin also heats up under the influence of irradiation, but it cools down quite quickly. It is important to understand that the hair growth is not level, but alternate. In other words, removing hair that was in an active state of growth during the procedure, then you will need to remove the hair that is asleep and grow up later. This means that laser hair removal is performed in a complex of several sessions (an average of 3 to 8 procedures).
Indications for laser hair removal
Laser hair removal is indicated to everyone who wants to get rid of unwanted hair forever. Due to the effect on the bulbs, not on the hair, laser hair removal can free the treated areas from the hair.
Laser hair removal is indicated especially to:
– In case of having hair on the face and neck;
– If a tendency to ingrowth of hair in the bikini area and above the upper lip;
– In case of skin sensitivity, irritation on the skin after other types of hair removal;
– When a great contrast between skin color and hair.
The laser is not indicated to everyone. Like any other cosmetology procedure, laser hair removal has a number of contraindications that can be divided into absolute and relative.
Absolute contraindications are:
– Blood diseases;
– Oncology and malignant tumors;
– Chronic diseases of the skin;
– Cardiovascular diseases;
– Infections of different species.
Relative contraindications are states and formations, which can be classified as temporary or insignificant.
Relative contraindications are:
– Lactation period;
– Moles and nevi.
Finally, I would like to note that the advantages of laser hair removal in comparison with all other methods of epilation are PAINLESSNESS and DURATION OF THE EFFECT! It will no longer be necessary to worry about unwanted hair on the body and spend time on regular unpleasant procedures.
