If you are tired of shaving, shaving with wax or electrolysis and unpleasant creams, laser hair removal is the solution. It is the most effective method to eliminate unwanted hair. It is a non-invasive treatment that works by concentrating light energy selectively on the hair follicle. This comfortable treatment can be done in just 5 minutes or up to 2 hours depending on the area treated. You can return to your normal activities immediately after it. Laser hair removal can be performed on any area of ​​the face or body, and is faster and easier than other methods of hair removal.

The laser hair removal requires a series of treatments based on several factors.First, hair cells grow in cycles and can only be treated in their growth phase. The thickness of the hair in the area to be treated can also affect the amount of treatments, along with the depth and density of the follicle.

We use the Candela Gentle YAG laser which is the latest in hair removal technology and is approved by the FDA to treat all types of skins, especially tanned and dark. The variable durations of the pulse and the multiple point sizes provided by the Gentle YAG ensure the best results as they can be adjusted to each type of skin and hair. Gentle YAG also has qualities for the treatment of varicose veins of the face and legs. The technology of the dynamic cooling device provides the patient with a consistent cooling of the epidermis and comfort.

What is laser hair removal?

Until a few years ago, shaving, the use of tweezers, waxing and electrolysis were the only methods to remove unwanted hair. In the early 1990s, the first reports were published on the use of laser energy to selectively damage and actively disable the growth of hair follicles. And since the middle of this decade, laser hair removal became the “golden method” of hair removal.

Who is fit for laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal works best for patients with dark hair. Because melanin pigment (dark pigment) is the main driver of hair follicles, the skin absorbs less laser energy and the hair follicle absorbs more. Tanned skin also “removes” laser energy as it passes through the skin to the hair follicle. Because hair pigment is the driver of laser energy, gray hair (which lacks pigment) can not effectively be treated with laser or any other light device.

How Many Laser Hair Removal Treatments Do I Need?

The number of treatments required to obtain optimum long-term results depends on the area to be treated, hair density and growth cycle. Hair grows in cycles and many factors influence its growth. Age, ethnicity, weight, hormones, diet, medication and metabolism play an important role in hair location, thickness and endurance. Laser energy is most effective in the hair growth stage, also known as the anagen phase of the cycle. As latent hair, or telogen, is activated on average 6 weeks after treatment, the growth of new hair will be observed. Multiple laser treatments are required for best results.

What are the side effects of laser hair removal?

Some patients experience mild reddening and local inflammation of the skin, similar to a sunburn. These effects generally disappear after a few hours, although they can last up to 24 hours. In some cases, hyperpigmentation (dark spots) or hypopigmentation (clear spots) may be observed, although it is unlikely. If it manifests itself, it is not permanent either. A professional will review the potential side effects of laser hair removal on you and will address all of your concerns.

What does it feel like to shave with a laser?

For your convenience, the AZ Clinic uses a Gentle YAG laser that uses a dynamic cooling device, consisting of a quick cryogenic spray to cool the skin. Just after the cryogen hits the skin and cools it, the laser is fired. A pulse of laser light feels like a little pinch or a slight pang similar to the beat of an elastic band against the skin. Due mainly to the dynamic cooling device, no anesthesia is required and the application is well tolerated.

Electrolysis is a slower procedure. In electrolysis a needle is inserted into each hair follicle, one at a time. Once inserted, an electric shock burns the follicle to slow hair growth. Laser hair removal uses cold laser light to scan the treated area and, within minutes, all hairs are treated in the laser beam. Most patients who have performed both procedures state that laser hair removal is less painful, faster and more convenient.
