Laser epilation is a reliable and effective method of getting rid of unwanted hair as soon as possible with laser technology. The laser beam is sent to the skin for brief periods of time, and the hair shaft and hair root absorb this beam. This ray heats the hair root. The high heat that occurs in the hair root causes the root to be destroyed. Thus, the hair sheds without damaging the upper layers of the skin and does not grow again. Laser Hair Removal in Jumeirah Dubai, Abu Dhabi & Sharjah destroys the hair roots and does not harm the hair’s tissue.
What Does Success Depend On?
Hair color: In laser epilation applications, the efficiency is higher in thick hairs. For this reason, the darker the hair, the more successful the laser epilation will be. On fine hairs, there is little or no activity.
Skin color: The light skin color of the person to be treated provides an advantage in the application. Because the dose increase can be done more efficiently in light skin types. The higher the laser dose, the greater the success.
Device selection: Choosing the suitable device and the correct dose is essential for a successful laser epilation application.
The area where epilation will be applied: The face area is one of the most challenging areas in epilation. Nd-Yag and diode lasers are the ideal choices for the face area. Alexandrite laser should not be preferred in the face area. The armpits, genitals, and lower legs are the areas that respond best to laser epilation.
Gender: Women are more advantageous for laser hair removal.
What are Preparations Made for Laser Hair Removal?
Before laser epilation, the area is cleaned with deodorant and other wet tissue cosmetics. The hairs in the area are shortened with a shaver. In order to prevent loss of time in the sessions after the first session, the person can perform the shortening process three days in advance. Pain is usually minimal in a laser epilation session.
However, a local anesthetic cream can be applied approximately 1 hour before the procedure in people who feel very pain.
How is Laser Epilation Applied?
The laser beams produced in the laser device are applied to the skin with a handpiece. People who do or have laser epilation treatment must wear protective glasses during the procedure. The rays applied to the skin are held by the dye substance called melanin, which is in the structure of the hair and gives the black color.
The captured light energy is converted into heat energy in the hair. The heat transmitted to the hair root destroys the hair root in milliseconds. At this time, a slight needle prick feeling is felt, and redness is observed. These symptoms indicate that the hairs are affected. Pain and side effects are reduced by air or contact cooling provided through the device during the procedure.
After Laser Hair Removal:
