Laser Alexandrite (for ligther skin) and laser Nd :Yag (for darker skin)
The light energy of the laser will be absorbed by the melanin (Alexandrite laser) or by the blood (Nd: Yag laser), which is in the bulb of the hair. The light is then converted into heat.
The light of the laser is then converted into heat. The temperature reached produces a denaturation of the proteins and collagen of the hair bulb.
During the session the patient wears eye protection glasses, and a cooling system is always used in conjunction with the laser. A burning sensation, tingling, elastic blow is felt slightly by the patient during the session. The redness and swelling obtained are witnesses of the effectiveness of the treatment and disappear in a few hours.
Laser treatment of the face is possible, however, the face is one of the areas that responds the least to the laser, thus, it takes a dozen sessions in order to remove the hair on the surface. The demand for laser hair removal is growing among men, whose stock of hair is greater, which often results in more sessions. Laser hair removal is possible by increasing the energy of the laser beam. White hairs can not, however, benefit from laser treatment. Electrical depilation (electrolysis) is then indicated.
The interval between sessions increases as the treatment progresses and depends on the hair cycle on the treated area. The number of sessions depends on the area as well as the patients, on average it will take six sessions for the body and a dozen for the face. Your doctor will provide you with all of the information more specifically when she gives you your personalized estimate on your initial visit and consultation.
Redness and swelling is proof of the treatment’s efficacy and will disappear in a few hours. Rarely and occasional one can experience blisters and scabs, these side effects will however disappear with the use of the healing cream.
