Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is a procedure that has been very popular for many years both among women and men. No wonder – after all, it is the most effective method of removing unwanted hair.

How does laser hair removal work?

The laser hair removal treatment uses a laser beam that penetrates deep into the skin and destroys the hair follicle. The stem cells that divide in it are responsible for the anagen phase, i.e. hair growth. As the laser works only on the bulbs in the growth phase, it is not possible to remove them in one visit. That is why, to achieve the expected results, you should perform a course of laser hair removal treatments.

Modern lasers used in hair removal, e.g. the Soprano Ice Titanium laser; use radiation that is completely absorbed by the melanin in the hair, i.e. the pigment responsible for its colour.

How long does the treatment last?

The treatment time depends on the treated area.
It can take any time from five minutes up to two hours.
The time interval between treatments:

  • 8 weeks for most of the body areas
  • 4-6 weeks for bikini area and underarms
  • 4 weeks for face and neck

How to prepare your skin for laser hair removal treatment?

During the first visit, we set the most important parameters of the treatment. To make the assessment of the hair structure and colour as accurate as possible, please:

  • at least 30 days before the first visit, shave the area only with a razor (you must not epilate the hair using methods such as: sugar paste, wax, tweezers)
  • at least 7 days before the visit, please do not take photosensitive drugs as well as antibiotics (their use is a contraindication to the procedure)
  • Shave the area the day prior to the treatment

What to avoid prior to the laser hair removal treatment?

On the day of the treatment:

  • Do not take painkillers, anti-inflammatory, blood thinning and photosensitive tablets.

4 weeks before treatment:

  • Do not expose yourself to the sun or use sunbeds or fake tan lotion. Skincare with retinol and acids should be discontinued at least 2 weeks before the procedure.
