Required number of the laser hair removal procedures
Dynamic removal of hairs is performed with high-impulse-speed beams which allow cover relatively large areas of patient's body (15*25 mm) within short time term. Diode laser can be applied on any phototype of skin: white, tanned, olive. Our specialist chooses wavelength for each client individually considering the color of hairs and skin and required exposure depth. The client will need to pass 7-10 sessions and 15 ones to gain long-lasting effect.
About 2-3 weeks later after the procedure, growing-again little hairs will come off by themselves. The whole process takes around 20 days but any discomfort senses don't rise during this period. Time gap between the first two sessions is 30 days. These time gaps will further be longer to achieve required effect.
Much turns on personal aspects of a patient's body:
• telogen — the old hair comes off of follicle, and the free spot is taken by a newly-grown one;
• catagen — due to the hold of cell division process, the surface of hair begins to become horny;
• anagen — active growth phase of hair, which is a great time to remove it.
The periods between the procedures change depending on number of remaining hairs. Up to 30% of hairs disappear within one session. When the main course is finished, specialists recommend patients to pass a single session each 6 months.
Duration of laser hair removal depends on type of used device, the size of treated area and the size of laser spot. Average duration of a session is 15 minutes. For example, area of underarm is treated for 3 minutes, and the legs (completely) — 30 minutes.
There are 3 the most common types of lasers for performing hair removal:
1. Neodymium (Nd: YAG).
Nd: YAG lasers are rarely used technology of that three above mentioned. It exposes the vessels which are feeding hair follicle. Often these lasers are utilized during other cosmetological procedures where they fit better as opposed to hair removal session. Diode laser is the most widely-spread option thanks to its affordable price. Alexandrite devices are able to produce a maximum effect while taking fair hairs out as the laser impacts on melanin in follicle.
Safety of laser hair removal and other method-related concerns of the clients
Some people believe that laser can impact on dark hair only. Modern technology makes it possible to get rid of even fair hair with no less effectiveness. There is a similar misbelief regarding color of skin: the sessions can't be performed if patient's skin is olive or tanned. The equipment, which Regent Clinic uses, can work within any range of skin's color shades.
It is wrongfully thought that the laser removal hair procedure brings pain and discomfort. But thanks to modern Q-MEDICAL technology, client actually doesn't experience any pain feelings even in the most delicate areas of skin. For these purposes, cooling system is used that consists of sapphire tip, water, semiconductor and air.
There is another false statement telling that laser-assisted hair removal can harm a client's health. The laser impacts on hair follicle, therefore it's absolutely safe for the body.
Regent Clinic Medical Center specialists have a personal approach to each client: they draw up a plan of course targeted on gaining the best aesthetic effect. Our dermatologist can tell about all details of the procedure performance during the first consultation.
Performance of laser hair removal at our medical center is the best option in terms of cost, quality and effectiveness. The cost of each session is based on treated area of body, its size and other factors.
