Laser hair removal for women and men
Do you dream of not having to depilate?
Exposure to the sun as well as to sunbeds should be avoided during the whole duration of the treatment, and one month before and one month afterwards. However, should you be exposed to the sun, very high levels of protection (SPF 50) must be used every two hours. The use of tanning accelerators as well as self-tanning products must stop at least two weeks before the beginning of treatment. Shave the area for treatment one day before. All depilation, waxing or any other method must be avoided for the duration of the treatment. Wash skin with soapy water before treatment.
This will depend on the pigmentation of the hairs and consequently the elimination is best during the growing period. During the period of regrowth or maturing, hair is not receptive to treatment because it lacks pigment. Therefore it is important to treat four to six times the same area of the body. In certain cases, it has been found that light fine hair regrows. In this case only one annual treatment is generally necessary.
Laser destroys the cells at the root of the hair thus stopping further growth. The laser light is more effective on dark hair because of its content of melanine/pigment. Permanent depilation does not lead to the complete disappearance of unwanted hair, but greatly reduces it.
this reason, this treatment is carried out during the Autumn, Winter and Summer. Darker skin or tanned skin are more difficult to treat.
As hair grows in cycles laser treatment is only effective during the anegen stage. Each session of treatment destroys 20 to 30% of hair follicles. Therefore, four to six sessions are necessary for a satisfactory result.
All areas of the body can be treated safely and comfortably: face, neck, legs, arms, underarms, bikini area, back, abdomen, etc.
The innovative treatment method of the Soprano makes it the most comfortable laser for hair removal. The sensation can range from that of a hot stone massage to an intense but tolerable heat sensation. In fact, the treatment avoids the use of anaesthetics.
Although the soprano can be used on tanned skin, it is preferable to avoid tanning, UV light and the use of self-tanning creams for a fortnight before the treatment. As the laser targets the hair root, waxing, tweezing, creams and electrolysis should also be avoided before the treatment in order to preserve the hair root. On the other hand, it is necessary to shave the area to be treated the day before the hair removal session.
The session is started by cleaning the area to be treated in order to remove all traces of cosmetics. An ultrasound gel is applied to facilitate the movement of the handpiece on the skin and increase the efficiency and comfort of the patient. During the treatment, you and your doctor will wear protective glasses that are opaque or have a specific filter.
The Soprano is the fastest system designed for medical laser hair removal. It is capable of covering large areas at high speed and treating many hairs with each light emission. The exact time depends on the size of the area to be treated (between 5 and 45 minutes).
All hair follicles go through periods of lethargy and growth. The Soprano only targets the active follicles that produce hair. Therefore, the treatment must be repeated until all follicles in the target area are in the growth phase. Clinical studies indicate that between five and seven sessions are required, sometimes more in hormone-stimulated areas (face, mall, underarms). The interval between sessions is four to eight weeks. However, there is one reservation: white hair cannot be treated.
