Indications

Diode laser hair removal is especially popular among people whose hobbies or profession requires high standards for appearance, such as actors, singers, dancers, athletes, models. The service is worth using for everyone who wants to get rid of unwanted hairs for many years – regardless of gender, age and hair structure. There are a number of medical indications: hypertrichosis – a large number of hairs in the usual areas; hirsutism – hair growth in women above the upper lip, on the chin, shoulders, chest, lower abdomen, inner thighs and back; skin sensitivity – other methods can lead to severe irritation in the treated area; tendency to ingrown hairs – the laser most effectively fights ingrown hairs and prevents the appearance of new ones.

Pay attention

Laser hair removal with a diode laser has significant advantages, but there is also a disadvantage, which we honestly warn visitors about. Eliminating unwanted hair in one session is not possible. The beam destroys bulbs that are in the active growth stage. Therefore, after the first session, the amount of hair decreases approximately by 20%. The number of visits to the beautician depends on the area being treated and the characteristics of the body. To achieve an impeccable result, you will need to spend 6-12 sessions with breaks of 4-6 weeks in between. The disadvantages are mistakenly attributed to the inability to provide laser hair removal in the summer. But this is a myth. Experts recommend more skin care in the warm season. You should not be in direct sunlight two weeks before and after hair removal. We advice to use a cream with a protection factor of SPF 50 before going outside.

How the session works in stages

The session is held in a modern cabinet, equipped specifically for laser hair removal. We use disposable consumables and disinfect devices before each session. Laser hair removal with a diode laser is as follows:

Consultation

The beautician determines if there are any contraindications. Then she makes recommendations and selects the optimal mode of operation of the laser, taking into account the type of skin, structure and color of the hair.

Hair removal

The specialist examines the treated area of ​​the body. Shaves hair and cleanses skin as needed. Before turning on the laser, a contact gel is applied to the skin – a conductor for the beam. Also, the substance protects the skin and promotes easy sliding of the head of the device – maniples. The epilation process lasts 15-60 minutes depending on the area.

Recommendations

At the end of the session, the specialist will give recommendations for skin care after the procedure.

After the first visit to LaserSkin you will notice that there is less hair. For several days after the session, the skin may turn a little red, slight swelling, itching and peeling are acceptable. Hair will begin to fall out 2-3 weeks after the procedure. After the first visits, the hairs may grow back, but will become thinner, lighter and softer. With each new visit to the center there will be more and more areas with smooth skin. An important nuance: after 3-5 sessions, “paradoxical growth” is possible. The bulbs are trying to recover, so their maturation is activated. During this period, it is important to continue the sessions, and after 6-12 visits the skin will be absolutely smooth.
