General information on laser hair removal

Laser hair removal is hair reduction through controlled pulses of laser light (energy) that penetrates the skin and is absorbed in the chromophore dark pigment (melanin).

The energy brought into the hair follicle destroys the hair and its stem cells in the immediate area, which are responsible for its growth and regeneration.

Unlike mechanical hair removal (hair-pulling) and depilation (removal of the part of the hair above the skin), the hair follicles are destroyed permanently, so no hair regrowth occurs. It can remove hair in all parts of the body, except around eyes. The procedure is suitable for both men and women.

The efficiency, limitations of hair removal technologies with light and laser sources, and the range of technologies mentioned above are very diverse, so we need to know some facts that will help us choose the most appropriate and effective device.

Term Laser is a generic abbreviation for “Light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation” and it indicates a technologically completed device that produces light energy of narrowly limited wavelengths.

The effectiveness of hair removal depends on the following three parameters, namely:

• the correct choice of wavelength;
• the duration of the light pulse;
• beam energy density.

The balance between these parameters is crucial for the efficiency of the laser process. Types of laser hair removal devices. The Alexandrite laser (755 nm) has the best absorption in the pigment of the hair, which conditions the efficiency but also possible complications in people who have a darker complexion.

Nd-Yag laser (1064 nm) has less selectivity in the pigment of hair and skin, making it suitable for removing hair in a darker complexion. Because of its good penetration, it destroys the deeper hair follicles (armpits, intimate parts).

“Intensive pulse light” IPLs are devices that emit intense pulse light of a wider (not selective) spectrum (590 – 1200 nm). Various filters limit it to a spectrum that is optimally absorbed in the pigment of the hair. Due to the wider light spectrum, a permanent number of treatments are required to permanently destroy the hair.

Laser IPLs or IPL devices for home use are categorized by the FDA only as (non-medical) devices as they do not have satisfactory and independent studies of efficacy and safety. They emit laser or other light sources with significantly less energy than professional medical lasers or devices. ​

The new acquisition of the Cosmetic line salon is a high-quality diode laser (1064, 808, 755 nm) for hair removal. It is a medical laser that emits energy from three different narrow-spectrum wavelengths. We can say that these are three different lasers combined into a single device, since it emits energy of 755 nm (Alex), 808 nm (Diode) and 1064 (Nd-Yag) wavelengths, combining the best features of individual lasers on the market aiming to remove the hair on your body as efficiently as possible.

The laser effectively removes:

• thick, dark and deep growing hair;
• the hair on a darker complexion and also on suntanned skin;
• the hair on sensitive or inflammatory skin;
• suitable for hair removal in all areas of the skin (except eyelids).

ICETM cooling technology cools the skin evenly and efficiently throughout the procedure and thus reduce the risk of burns and pains. Unlike outdated laser devices, it emits energy pulses extremely fast (10 Hz), so the procedure is continuous and allows hair to be removed even at wider areas of the skin in an extremely short time. It takes about 50 minutes for the back-hair removal procedures and about 70 minutes for the entire legs.

​The course of the laser hair removal procedure

On the part of the skin where the procedure is to be performed, the hair should not be pulled for at least 6 weeks before the first laser procedure, but it may be shaved or removed with depilatory creams. The skin where the treatment will be performed should not be exposed to the sun for at least 4 weeks before the procedure.

We shave the hair 24 hours before. Before the laser treatment, the skin is lubricated with a conductive gel, which allows greater transience of light energy into the skin. We protect the eyes with goggles or protective caps. The laser procedure is performed by sliding the laser device on the skin. When there is a feeling of pain, the skin is additionally cooled. If the procedure is inconvenient or severely painful, we immediately talk to the therapist who performs the procedure. After the epilation procedure, the skin is reddened and small swellings may appear at the sites of the hair follicles, which usually disappear within 24-48 hours after the procedure. After the procedure, the skin is cleaned, and a cooling gel is applied.

The risks and possible complications:
• Burns and consequently skin pigmentations disorders due to excessive optical energy or an inefficient skin cooling system. Burns can also occur due to a client’s failure to comply with the rules, which does not perform the recommended sun protection at the time of laser procedure.
• Signs of inflammation on treated skin are expressed as prolonged redness of the skin with burning, red, swollen hair follicles. It is a sign of a more reactive, sensitive skin type. Signs of the inflammation are transient, and they don’t leave any consequences.
• A herpes outbreak is a completely individual adverse effect when the virus is reactivated due to the overheating of the skin.

Before the start of the procedure, the patient is obliged to inform the therapist about:
• urticaria/hives for heat;
• skin disorders that are manifested by increased skin sensitivity to the light;
• hormonal disorders or diseases that affect increased hairiness of the skin;
• taking medicines that increase the skin’s sensitivity to light;
• prolonged exposure to the sun in the days immediately before the procedure;
• prior laser hair removal procedures and possible complications;
• other procedures in the field of aesthetic dermatology, performed at the site where laser epilation is planned;
• pregnancy.
