Laser hair removal

Laser hair removal – course of treatment

The energy of the light emitted by the laser head can be absorbed by chromophores, including melanin, the dye that can be found in the hair. When the dye absorbs the light energy, it is converted into heat energy, which destroys both the hair and its root. The impulses are felt by patients as a slight burning or pinching. The best anesthetic is a constant supply of cold air to treated areas – both before and after treatment. The laser head has a cooling system, that makes the treatment painless and eliminates the risk of burns.

Benefits of laser hair removal:

  • fabulous aesthetic results,
  • long-lasting results of the treatment,
  • short duration of a session,
  • Advanced Contact Cooling Technology for optimum comfort.

Depilation – before treatment

A few days before the scheduled treatment you should not undergo microdermabrasion, chemical peels or waxing. One should avoid medicines (antibiotics and antidepressants) and photosensitive herbs (St. John’s wort, calendula, horsetail). The skin should not be browned. The hair removal takes place one day before the treatment.

Depilation – Postoperative course

After the treatment you can cool yourself with cold compresses and use a healing cream for a few days. During the day you should use a protective cream with high sun filters (SPF50 + anti-UVA).

The hair will gradually fall out, after 3 weeks the first areas are visible without hair. In order to achieve a lasting reduction of the hairiness, one should complete 5 to 10 treatments of depilation – at 6-week intervals.

Scar removal – laser

Course of treatment – Scar removal with laser

Scars are not only a defect of beauty, but are also the reason for high, mental discomfort of the patients. Hard scars can cause pain or contractures. Lasers have significantly changed the medical options for treating scars.

The character of a scar is of little importance, because we remove scars after accidents, after surgery and after acne. The treatment is based on photothermolysis, in which the skin cells absorb light energy and convert it into heat energy – in this process the tissue is remodeled. In the area of ​​the scar, a network of damaged and healthy skin is created, which starts an intensive process of rebuilding. Soft scars can also be changed and look like healthy skin again.

The laser head guarantees ideal precision both in the depth of the light beam and in the density of the treated tissue. Thanks to that you can create a very effective and safe therapy.

The impulses are felt by patients as a slight burning or pinching.

Before treatment – Scar removal with laser

The skin does not need to be specially prepared for this treatment. The skin should be clean and free from rash. It must not be browned. A few days before the treatment you should not undergo microdermabrasion or chemical peels. One should avoid medicines (antibiotics and antidepressants) and photosensitive herbs (St. John’s wort, calendula, horsetail).

After the treatment

Non-ablative lasers do not cause damage to the outer layer of the epidermis, therefore no absence is necessary after this treatment. After treatment, the skin is swollen and blushing, which may last for 1-2 days. After that, the skin becomes a little brown and flakes off. The recovery time lasts up to 2 weeks on the head and up to 3 weeks on the body. After this time, the skin returns to normal appearance, but the regeneration process continues. The whole reconstruction takes from 4 to 6 weeks. Then often the treatment is repeated.
