Laser Hair Removal is a safe and effective treatment
How Does It Work?
Our high-tech system uses two powerful forms of laser technology:
YAG and Alexandrite energies. This wonderful combination provides just the right amount of intense and controlled energy. This ensures that we safely and effectively deactivate the hair follicles so that they do not grow back. Our laser system targets the hair pigment, vaporizes the hair strands and transfers heat to the walls of the follicles without affecting the surrounding skin.

How does Laser Hair Removal work?
The treatment areas
Lasers are useful for removing unwanted hair from the face, leg, chin, arm, bikini line, and other areas of the body. Each treatment area takes a certain amount of time.
Each pulse of the laser takes a fraction of a second and can treat many hairs at the same time. The laser can treat an area approximately the size of a quarter every second. The size of the treatment area can vary by patient. When talking about time, small areas such as the upper lip can be treated in less than a minute, and large areas, such as the back or legs, may take up to an hour.
What type of results will I see?
After each treatment, you will notice that the hair grows back slowly and there is less hair. Usually, the hair grows back finer until it finally goes away altogether. Also, you will notice much smoother skin.
The hair removal sessions
How much time the hair removal sessions will take is up to you and the body areas you want to be treated. This is because each area takes a certain time. Laser hair removal usually requires a series of two to six treatments. The interval between treatments will vary depending on the location. In areas where hair grows quickly, such as the upper lip, the treatment might be repeated in four to eight weeks. Also, for laser hair removal for underarms. In areas of slow hair growth, such as the back, the treatment might be every 12 to 16 weeks. In fact, most patients have permanent hair loss after an average of three to seven sessions.
What are the risks and side effects?
Will Laser Hair Removal hurt?
Laser hair removal treatments are generally painless and do not usually require anesthesia. However, some patients request some topical anesthesia when treating large areas of the body or sensitive areas such as the upper lip or bikini area. Topical anesthesia is an anesthetic cream that is applied prior to laser treatment.

Before your treatment
Before your laser hair removal treatment, we recommend the following:
- Arrive at your appointment with your skin clean and free of creams, lotions and oils.
- Shave, but do not wax.
- Avoid sun exposure and tanning treatments.
- Notify your specialist if you are taking any medications including antibiotics.
- Avoid chemical peels, microdermabrasion and injectables for 14 days prior to laser hair removal.
After your treatment!
It is possible that after your treatment you may experience some redness. Don’t worry this should only go away in a few hours. The truth is that there is no downtime, so you can resume your daily activities without any problems. The hair usually falls out within two weeks. And while the hair may grow back between sessions, it is usually thinner and lighter. You will need minimal aftercare. Just please keep the treated area clean. We also recommend using a sunscreen with a minimum of SPF 30.

Benefits of Laser Hair Removal
Lasers are useful for removing unwanted hair from the face, legs, chin, back, arms, armpits, bikini line and other areas. The benefits of laser hair removal are amazing:
The precision of the lasers helps to select the dark and coarse hair while leaving the surrounding skin intact.
A laser pulse is short and can touch many hairs at the same time. The laser depilates very small areas precisely. For certain parts of the body such as the legs or back it may take about an hour, but areas such as the lips take less than a minute.
Most patients have permanent hair loss after an average of three to seven sessions. Patience brings good results. It takes two to three weeks after your first treatment to see a difference.
Permanent Hair Reduction
Is laser hair removal permanent? When the hairs grow back, they’ll be lighter, finer, and fewer in number. Thus, laser treatment only reduces the number of unwanted hairs in a given area.
And don’t forget that women and men get smooth skin after the treatment!

Is laser hair removal different for men than for women?
Laser can be performed on almost all skin types. It does not matter if they are men or women. The difference usually lies in what type of areas they prefer to wax. The truth is that the procedure is the same for both sexes, our team examines the area to be treated and checks that the skin is shaved and moisturized. Once the appropriate parameters are selected according to the patient’s characteristics, conductive gel is applied and the treatment begins.
Laser Hair Removal for men
Men’s hair removal is becoming more and more common. The areas they prioritize the most are the back, legs and chest. In addition, beard shaping is becoming one of the trends in hair removal. Men, on the other hand, who
sportsmen tend to wax their armpits.

Laser Hair Removal FAQs
Repeated use of laser hair removal techniques could result in complete hair loss. Continued use of laser procedures may prevent a follicle from producing hair in the future. The coarseness and thickness of the hair will be a determining factor in how easy it is to remove the hair. It will also determine how many treatments are needed until the returning hair has diminished in size and coarseness. Over time, the continued use of the laser will have an impact on how the follicle produces hair. This may result in the permanent cessation of hair growth in that particular area.
Well, laser hair removal does not work for all hair colors or types. This is mainly because lasers are attracted to pigment. Which means that they work best on dark hairs. Laser just does not work so well on hair that has no pigment like light blonde, light red, and white hair.
It is also very ideal if your hair is coarse. Hair that is very fine will not pick up the laser well. An interesting fact to take into consideration is that it won’t really work if you’ve recently waxed. However, you can shave right before your session! You will get the best results if you do this because in that way the hair follicle can be targeted.
It is also very ideal if your hair is coarse. Hair that is very fine will not pick up the laser well. However, there is a new technology called LightSheer Desire which can be used on all hair types and colors (except for grey). Though people with light blonde or red locks shouldn’t have high expectations.
It really isn’t. It is a very comfortable and safe treatment. However, some people are more sensitive than others, so you may experience some discomfort. On the other hand, our cooling system soothes the skin so the treatment does not cause any discomfort.
Initially laser hair removal treatments are scheduled between 4 to 8 weeks. However, it all depends on the area to be treated.
If you wait too long between sessions, the effectiveness of the treatment may be reduced. You may then need more sessions than scheduled.
Most areas require 3 to 5 treatments applied at intervals of 4 to 8 weeks to achieve the desired results.
The truth is that technology has come a long way. Laser hair removal can now be effective on lighter hair and darker skin tones. Now, the best results with the fewest number of sessions are obtained on people with lighter skin and darker hair.
You may experience redness and swelling. In some cases a slight burn or blister. That is why it should only be done by trained medical personnel.

- Before starting a laser hair removal treatment, it is very important to follow a series of recommendations and advice. This is the only way to achieve a correct evolution and optimal results.
- Do not expose yourself to the sun (or to UVA cabins) during the four to five weeks prior to the laser hair removal session.
- It is very important to protect the skin with sunscreen with a high photoprotection index if the area to be depilated is exposed, as is the case of the face in facial hair removal.
- Do not use self-tanning products days before the laser session.
- The area to be laser depilated should not be shaved a few days before the depilation treatment.
- Neither should the area to be treated be depilated with traction techniques (tweezers, wax or depilatory razors), since they pull out the hair by the root and it is necessary for the hair to have emerged for the treatment to be effective.
- It is necessary to go to the consultation with the area to be treated clean and without having applied any cosmetic product, makeup, tonic, cologne, etc.
- You should tell the doctor or professional who treats you about any illness you have or if you are taking any medication, if you have any known allergies, a history of herpes or any disorder related to wound healing.
- Laser hair removal treatment cannot be performed if you are being treated with Isotretinoin.
