PHOTODEPILATION (IPL)

Laser hair removal or hair removal Intense Pulsed Light (IPL ) are undoubtedly the most effective , comfortable and safe methods to remove hair permanently. They are virtually painless and provide softness to the skin.

 

In addition, the medical efficacy of the laser allows to treat folliculitis(hair birth below the skin) and hirsutism (excessive hair growth ) problems satisfactorily.

 

In order to achieve high efficiency in the treatment and cause no complications (pigmentation , burns, etc.) the history of each person must be known, and personal features such as skin photo-types , thickness of hair and its growth phase, age, sex, and area to be treated are to be taken into account. This is the reason why this treatment should be performed in an authorized by the health service medical centre, because if the treatment is not done with the suitable laser or apparatus and with the adequate energy, what is provoked is a very thin hair that is very difficult to eliminate.

 

Our clinic has a diode laser ( Lumenis Light Sheer ) and IPL ( Quanta System) .

 

LASER DIODE LIGHT SHEER

The Lightsheer uses the latest generation diode laser to permanently remove unwanted hair. Safely and comfortably. In few short sessions within several months intervals.

 

Lightsheer produces a beam of highly concentrated light. The light emitted is well absorbed by the pigment located in the hair follicles.

 

During the procedure, the laser pulses for a fraction of a second , long enough to heat up the hair. The heat damages the stem and bulb , and substantially impedes the follicle's ability to re-grow. Furthermore, it can treat numerous hair follicles simultaneously, allowing a much faster treatment than the traditional laser hair removal ones.

 

Side effects are rare. If they occur , they are usually minor. They may include redness and swelling around the hair follicle , which are, in fact, the positive clinical results that indicate that the follicle has responded to the treatment. You can return to normal activities right away.
