A TECHNIQUE ADAPTED TO YOUR NEEDS: ELITE CYNOSURE LASER HAIR REMOVAL
About laser hair removal:
Laser hair removal is a technique that has been medically proven and mastered for approximately 20 years. Our centre is equipped with 5 lasers covering all types of hair removal.
ALEXANDRITE LASER technology – Nd YAG APOGEE ELITE (Cynosure®)
This technological advancement allows us to treat any type (colour) of skin safely and efficiently.
The effect of laser hair removal on hair
To keep hair from growing back, the roots need to be destroyed by the melanin (pigment). The laser heats hair to 70°C and therefore destroys it.
It is important to know if hair removal lasers will be effective on your type of skin and hair.
To do so, we always offer a free consultation before treatment. During this consultation, we will make sure that you skin does have any contraindications to performing laser hair removal and that your hair is susceptible to the treatment.
The laser targets the pigment (melanin) contained in the hair. Therefore, blond, red and white hair cannot be treated. In this case, electrolysis hair removal is the only technique available.
What kind of hair?
The human body has 3 types of hair:
- Very fine colourless hair
- Intermediate hair
- Terminal or thick hair
Lasers work on intermediate and terminal hair. For fine colourless hair, we will use a specifically designed laser called REVLITE with a different treatment protocol.
Contraindications for laser hair removal:
We do not treat pregnant women or patients with dermatological inflammatory disorders or sun allergies.
Possible side effects of laser hair removal:
Like all medical procedures, a zero risk does not exist. However, side effects are extremely rare (pain, tingling, rare burns, hyper or hypopigmentation). Cutting-edge laser technology is safe and effective.
What should I expect during laser hair removal:
Patients at Le Centre are treated only by qualified medical physicians. Depending on the area treated, sessions vary from 15 minutes for bikini areas to 3 hours for full leg, bikini, arm, etc. During the session, we can treat as many areas as you wish that were approved during the preliminary assessment.
The laser centre is equipped with a skin cooling system that numbs the skin while the laser is being shot. Skin sensitivity to laser hair removal sessions is very tolerable.
At the end of the session, the laser physician will apply a soothing cream.
REGULARLY SCHEDULED SESSIONS ARE REQUIRED FOR COMPLETE HAIR REMOVAL AND WILL INFLUENCE THE RESULT OF THE ENTIRE TREATMENT.
The doctor will determine the duration required between sessions depending on the quality of the hair. This period varies between 4 weeks for the face and 6 to 7 weeks for the body.
An average of 6 sessions are needed in order to bring you complete satisfaction.
To ensure complete safety, please remember that we do not treat patients who were exposed to the sun or UV rays one month before treatment.
The entire treatment lasts approximately one year given the number of sessions, time between sessions and holiday breaks. Therefore, there is no ideal time to start your treatment.
– Comfort sessions: Patients who do not want or cannot undergo a full treatment can schedule an appointment 15 days before their holiday, giving them peace of mind for 2 months after the session.
– Young women: Laser hair removal can begin after puberty. For those women (aged under 16) who still wish to remove their thin colourless hair, we provide REVLITE laser treatment to effectively remove fine hair for several months.
After all, medical laser hair removal is a well-being service that is above all a MEDICAL TREATMENT.
All laser treatments in Le Centre are performed by our team of qualified physicians.
We place a special focus on your satisfaction.
