LASER HAIR REMOVAL
What is laser hair removal?
Two decades have passed since science discovered how to apply laser technology to make hair disappear. Today nobody will hesitate to acknowledge that laser hair removal is by far, the preferred method in comparison to, for instance, wax—hot or cold—, razors, hair removal cream, hair discoloration or shaving.
Advantages of laser hair removal
First, with laser hair removal, the possibility of feeling pain or suffering any type of allergy, irritation or illness during or after treatment is totally null, something which does happen—or may happen in case of allergy—with the rest of the methods mentioned above. Nobody that wax or razors cause pain and that anyone would feel relieved to not have to suffer through that pain again in order to show off beautiful legs. Or that depilatory creams or products to bleach hair are not suitable for all skin types.
Secondly, unlike methods such as depilatory cream and shaving, laser hair removal offers long-lasting or permanent hair removal after several sessions.
In conclusion, laser hair removal accomplishes results much longer without causing any pain and without any kind of allergic reaction.
Laser hair removal treatment
The treatment consists of laser light energy (with intensity adapted to every type of skin and hair of the person in question) which is absorbed by the melanin in the hair and transformed into heat, which then causes the destruction of the hair bulb and prevents the hair from growing back. This is why, the more melanin the hair contains, i.e. the darker it is, the easier it will be to eliminate because the absorption of light will be higher and the production of heat will be greater in the hairline.
Nowadays, lasers adapted to all sorts of hair and skin have been developed in order to provide an optimum result in the fewest possible sessions regardless of the characteristics of the patient:
- Diode 800.
- Neodymium Yag or Nd-Yag 1064.
- Pulsed Quanta Light.
- Short and long pulse Alexandrite laser.
- Soprano Laser.
- Legato QZ Laser.
