PERMANENT HAIR REMOVAL
LASER HAIR REMOVAL: A TECHNIQUE ADAPTED TO YOUR NEEDS
THE PRINCIPLE OF LASER HAIR REMOVAL
Laser hair removal is a technique that has been medically validated and mastered for about twenty years. Our centre is equipped with 5 lasers covering all the indications for laser hair removal.
ALEXANDRITE LASER TECHNOLOGY - ND YAG
Technological advances mean that we can process any skin phototype (colour) safely and with optimum efficiency.
The effect of laser hair removal on the hair
THE TARGET STRUCTURE:
In order for a hair to stop growing back, its bulb must be destroyed via its melanin (pigment). The depilatory laser emits a heat that will bring the temperature of the hair to 70°c and thus destroy the hair.
INDICATIONS FOR LASER HAIR REMOVAL:
It is important to understand on which skin type and hair type hair removal lasers can be effective.
For this purpose, a free medical consultation is systematically carried out beforehand with a laserist doctor of the Centre. During this session, we will check if your skin does not present any contraindication to the practice of laser and if your hair will be sensitive to the technique.
The target of the laser is the pigment (melanin) contained in the hair. Therefore, blond, red and white hair cannot be treated. In these cases, electric hair removal will remain the only technique of choice.
The human body has 3 types of hair:
- fine hair or down
- intermediate hairs
- and terminal or thick hairs
Laser hair removal is effective on intermediate and terminal hairs. For fine and downy hair, we will use a laser specially dedicated to this indication called REVLITE with a different treatment protocol.
THE DIFFERENT PERMANENT HAIR REMOVAL TECHNIQUES:
There is no equivalent today in terms of efficiency as the laser. Pulsed lights are present in non-medical aesthetic centres, however, studies prove a notable lack of effectiveness. It is strictly forbidden the practice of permanent hair removal by non-physicians.
CONTRAINDICATIONS TO LASER HAIR REMOVAL:
We do not treat pregnant women, patients with inflammatory skin diseases.
ADVERSE EFFECTS OF LASER HAIR REMOVAL :
Like all medical techniques, there is no such thing as zero risk. However, these side effects are extremely rare (pain, tingling, rarely burns, hyper or hypo pigmentation). The very high technology used in lasers is totally safe.
COURSE OF LASER HAIR REMOVAL SESSIONS:
Patients at the Centre are treated only by licensed physicians. Depending on the area treated, the session varies from 15 minutes for a bikini to 3 hours for complete legs, bikini, armpits, arms ... During the session, we can treat as many areas as you wish and which will be validated during the preliminary assessment.
The laser center is equipped with a skin cooling system that anesthetizes the skin at the same time as the laser shots are performed. The sensitivity of the sessions is quite tolerable.
At the end of the session, the laser doctor will apply a soothing cream.
THE REGULARITY OF THE HAIR REMOVAL SESSIONS IS ESSENTIAL FOR THE GOOD EFFECTIVENESS OF THE ENTIRE TREATMENT.
Depending on the quality of the hair, the doctor will determine the length of time between laser hair removal sessions. This varies between 4 weeks for the face and 6 to 7 weeks for the body.
It is important to destroy the hair as it grows. Waiting too long between sessions may not be in the right phase of hair growth.
An average of 6 sessions are necessary to fully satisfy your request.
There are, however, cases where the number of sessions may be larger. This phenomenon cannot in any way be predicted during the assessment. Various physical reasons can be responsible for this (hormonal disorders, bulbs that are too thin, laser resistance, etc.).
In order to guarantee total safety, we would like to remind you that we do not treat patients who have been exposed to the sun or UV rays during the month prior to the session.
The complete treatment is spread over one year, taking into account the number of sessions, the time between sessions and holiday breaks. There is therefore no ideal period to start laser hair removal sessions.
SPECIAL CASES :
- Comfort sessions: Patients who do not wish or cannot follow a complete treatment can have a laser hair removal session 15 days before their holidays, guaranteeing peace of mind for 2 months after the session.
- Young women: The laser is to be started after the end of puberty. For those (under 16 years of age) who wish to reduce their pilosity despite everything, we propose the REVLITE laser which is a down treatment laser with an efficiency over several months.
To conclude, medical laser hair removal is a comfort treatment that remains above all a MEDICAL ACT.
All laser treatments performed in the Centre are carried out by our team of qualified doctors. Laser hair removal is a MEDICAL ACT.
OUR GOAL, YOUR SATISFACTION.
