Diode laser hair removal
What is diode laser hair removal?
Diode laser hair removal is a form of laser hair removal treatment that offers a gentle touch, removing hair while protecting the skin. This form of laser hair removal is an effective treatment for all skin and hair types.
How does laser hair removal work?
Laser hair removal uses laser light to remove hair follicles by targeting the melanin in the follicle. Melanin is the pigment that gives hair its color. The presence of melanin allows the laser to be precisely targeted, heating and damaging the hair follicle.
Individual hairs should be pointed one at a time. Not all hairs are actively growing at the same time, so a patient should be treated throughout the hair growth cycle to ensure that all hairs have been removed.
Is diode laser hair removal effective?
Diode laser hair removal is an effective treatment. Many patients will find that their hair is shed in the long term. Diode laser hair removal involves minimal discomfort.
Is diode laser hair removal permanent?
Diode laser hair removal can be permanent after a personalized treatment according to your needs and hair type. Since not all hair is in a growth phase at the same time, it may be necessary to revisit certain treatment areas to permanently remove hair.
Once hair has been completely removed from some areas of the body, it will only grow back in very rare circumstances, such as a significant hormonal change.
How many treatments are needed for laser hair removal?
The number of laser hair treatments you should schedule depends on the area that needs to be treated. In most cases, very significant results can be seen in 3-5 treatments. It may be necessary to perform 7 to 10 treatments at different times for a complete and permanent removal.
Are there any side effects to laser hair removal?
When laser hair removal is done correctly, the risk of side effects is extremely low. A qualified physician should adapt the laser settings to your complexion and the area of the body to be treated.
In most cases, patients who undergo laser hair removal on the face or neck have their skin cooled with a cloth or cream shortly after treatment. There may be slight redness, but this should not progress to swelling. Cosmetics should not be used immediately after treatment.
Does laser hair removal also remove scars?
Specialized medical lasers can be used for scar removal. However, it is essential that the correct type of laser is used, configured with the proper settings, for each separate procedure.
