PERMANENT LASER HAIR REMOVAL WITH DIODE LASER

Permanent hair removal is the solution that can turn body hair into a simple memory, leaving the skin smooth, velvety, without unwanted hair. You’ve probably heard of the laser hair removal service, and if you wish you didn’t have to resort to painful hair removal alternatives such as waxing or hair removal methods with short-term efficiency, like a razor blade, we invite you to read on. 

Permanent laser hair removal is the solution that helps you get rid of unwanted hair on the body, but the results must be maintained at certain intervals, as you will find out during this article.

Definitive laser hair removal should not be confused with the IPL hair removal method, the latter involving pulsed light, an older and less efficient technology.

What is permanent hair removal?

Permanent laser hair removal is a cosmetic technology used to remove unwanted body hair. The laser method is used worldwide and it is based on the principle of photo-thermolysis, which helps the progressive removal of hair follicles from the root, without damaging the adjacent tissues. 

During the hair removal procedure, the laser heats the unwanted hair to a temperature of 70-80 degrees Celsius and “melts” the roots. The skin is not damaged by laser hair removal.

The results of laser hair removal are permanent, but throughout life, especially when the treatment is applied to very young people, other new hairs may appear. At the same time, certain endocrinological problems could lead to the appearance of new hairs, in addition to those removed by laser hair removal.

Permanent laser hair removal not only has a purely aesthetic purpose, but can also be used as a method of treatment or prevention of health problems such as hirsutism, the appearance of excessive hair in the chin, mustache, chest, folliculitis, hair growth under the skin, as well as in the situation of lesions in the armpit area and recurrent pilonidal cyst.

Would permanent hair removal have contraindications? This is a common question among our customers. Each treatment has a certain protocol and it is safe to follow this protocol and use special glasses. The treatment is performed by a specialized beauty technician, and this is fundamental, because if the device is not used correctly, it can cause severe skin burns. 

Definitive laser hair removal has no other side effects, if you carefully choose the clinic and the specialists who perform this procedure.

Permanent epilation with Diode laser

In choosing the clinic where you will be treated for permanent hair removal, it is important to learn as much as possible about the type of equipment used because it must be as efficient as possible, while technicians must be qualified and professional, as it happens at the Avra Institute. 

In our center we use Eride Smart Dual and PlatinumGMT Diode Laser permanent hair removal devices, among the most advanced permanent hair removal technologies in the world.

Eride Smart Dual uses laser power to raise the temperature of the hair. This laser emits on three different wavelengths 755 nm (alexandrite) + 808nm (diode) + 1064 nm (NdYag).

The Diode laser penetrates the skin and reaches the dermal papilla, removing it by selective photo thermolysis. Thus, the hair follicle is destroyed, while respecting the adjacent structures, the dermis and the epidermis.

The thermal relaxation interval allows the skin to lower the excess temperature, which means that the laser will not affect the skin. The intensity applied during the final hair removal treatment varies, depending on the skin type, as well as the thickness and color of the hair.

Definitive Diode laser hair removal has immediate visible results, has a guaranteed safety for any skin type, can be applied on the entire body surface and the results are exceptional.

Frequently Asked Questions

By permanent hair removal, you will get very good results on several areas of your body, depending on your particular needs. If you are not comfortable with classic hair removal methods or you are afraid of pain, this option is comfortable and easy to bear.

Among the most sought after areas for permanent hair removal are: armpit, groin, face, legs. At Avra Aesthetic Institute you can effectively perform permanent hair removal on a larger number of body areas, in addition to those listed, for example: the sideburn area, bikini area, periareolar, arms, on shoulders, buttocks, abdomen, on the back; at the same time, you will be able to choose full body treatments, intended for both women and men.

The permanent laser hair removal procedure can be performed at Avra Institute throughout the year, although it is recommended, rather, in the cold season, when the sun exposure is lower, so that sessions with a higher laser intensity can be performed, on lighter skin.

The hair on the body develops in three stages – growth (anagen stage), rest (catagen stage), fall (telogen stage) and therefore it cannot be removed from a single session of permanent laser hair removal, but more sessions and extended breaks are needed, as only the hair in the anagen phase can be treated.

If you are wondering how many permanent hair removal sessions you will need, it is important to know that their number varies, depending on different factors such as skin color, hair thickness, density, amount of pigment in the hair, and cycle hair growth, but also the results of previous sessions.

The duration of treatment depends on the body area on which it is performed, while a session does not exceed three hours when performed on the whole body. Moreover, the laser hair removal sessions must be performed as soon as the hair reappears, being, on average, a period of 4-6 weeks between sessions.

This period gradually increases up to the interval associated with the procedure of administration of maintenance therapy, around 1-2 sessions per year.

The technician performing the procedure is best able to assess the laser-treated areas so that he can determine if he can perform a new permanent hair removal session.

In general, the effectiveness of permanent hair removal is great for most people. However, there are also people for whom this method does not give the best results, regardless of the number of meetings held, but this happens very rarely, the reasons being currently unknown for this particular situation.

Sometimes the explanations can vary, from not respecting the recommended number of sessions, or the interval between appointments, to the incorrect setting of the device for the specific type of skin and hair.

The results depend on several factors, and the hair does not disappear permanently in all cases.

There are methods of permanent hair removal that can be done at home and which are convenient and have the advantage of providing privacy and flexibility to users. However, these methods are not as effective as permanent professional hair removal, performed in a specialized clinic.

Permanent hair removal at home is usually done with IPL technology and is not suitable for all skin types. It requires a longer time to give results, the hair will grow back after stopping the treatment and the results are not as intense.

Instead, permanent professional hair removal has a higher intensity, is fast, effective, suitable for all skin types and requires fewer sessions.

Definitive hair removal requires, on the one hand, a solid training for the specialist and on the other hand, an informed client.  So, before making a decision, choose carefully the clinic and the specialist who will perform your permanent laser hair removal, so as not to take any unwanted risks.

It is important to tell your technician before the final hair removal procedure if you suffer from certain conditions or if you are undergoing any medication treatment.

If you want to follow a permanent laser hair removal treatment, you need to follow the instructions given by the specialist. Four weeks before the procedure, it is important to avoid waxing, going to the artificial tanning salon, as well as natural sun exposure, which could sensitize the skin. 

Besides, 12 hours before the session, you have to shave the area of the body that you are going to undergo treatment for. This process is necessary to make the procedure easier.

During the final hair removal session, if you feel any discomfort, inform your technician.

After the final laser hair removal sessions, you must follow the care advice of the specialist, and do not use makeup for 48 hours, if the treatment was performed on your face. Your specialist will recommend the products you can use to avoid unwanted skin reactions and possible irritations.

After a permanent hair removal session you may notice irritation around the hair follicles. These will disappear on their own in about 1-2 days. The feeling of discomfort can be alleviated with the help of cold compresses, as well as with certain moisturizers. 

In addition, avoid the use of strong soaps and choose, instead, dermato-cosmetic cleaning products.

Sun exposure should also be avoided after hair removal sessions and, if necessary, the use of a high protection factor is recommended.

The price of the final laser hair removal procedure varies, depending on the areas treated and the number of sessions. The price list for Avra Institute can be found here.
