Laser hair removal

laser hair removal

The key to successful hair removal is destroying the entire follicle, down to the bulb and its germinating centers, while preserving surrounding healthy tissue. Destroying the hair follicle during its active growth cycle is another key to producing long-term hair reduction. Consequently, multiple treatments scheduled several weeks or months apart are typically required to achieve optimal results.

The energy from the Laser penetrates through the skin and is absorbed in the target pigment (melanin) found in the hair shaft. This energy absorbed in the shaft causes the temperature to reach a sufficiently high level in the hair follicle so that the targeted hair structures are destroyed and regrowth is inhibited.

With state of art Lumenis laser equipment, the laser hair removal can result in long-lasting hair removal after a treatment regime. In fact, Lumenis photoepilation technology has been proven to provide permanent hair reduction.

We can effectively treat virtually all hair colors and hair textures, from blonde to black, and coarse to fine. Hair removal is now possible for all skin types (Fitzpatrick Skin Types I – VI), even tanned and dark-skinned patients can be treated.

Laser hair removal can quickly and efficiently eliminate hair from all parts of the body, no matter how deep the follicles reside or how large or small the area. This includes sensitive areas like the lip, under the arms, and around the bikini line, as well as large areas like a man’s back or a pair of woman’s legs.

With cool tip technology, hair removal will have minimal patient discomfort, side effects or interruption of routine activities. Pseudofolliculitis Barbae (PFB) – PFB, or razor bumps, is a common condition in which the regrowing hair, after shaving, curves back towards and pierces the skin resulting in a pustule or papule. PFB is very prevalent in populations with curly hair, affecting nearly 85% of men of African decent and a growing number of women. The laser hair removal system with excellent safety profile for all skin types including the darkest skin, makes it a safe, effective and revolutionary alternative for the treatment of pseudofolliculitis barbae.
