Innovation in the service of smooth skin
At AVRA, we have chosen the innovative PlatinumGMT Diode Laser, one of the most advanced technology for permanent hair removal in the world, that works based on the selective photothermolysis principle. The treatment parameters are adjusted to selectively eliminate hair follicles without affecting the adjacent tissues.
Diode laser works by using light to produce an increase in the hair’s temperature. The light, which is absorbed by the hair’s melanin and to a minimum extent by the skin, heats the hair to 70 / 80° C, carbonizing and coagulating its root. The thermal relaxation time allows the skin to constantly reduce any excess temperature, thus avoiding any skin damage. The blood that flows through the dermis allows the skin to be cooled while hair is being destroied.
The intensity used in the treatment will depend on the skin type and on the color and thickness of the hair, parameters that the trained aesthetician performing the treatment is assesing.
Smooth skin, effortlessly
PlatinumGMT Diode Laser eliminates the unwated hair, while also improving the appearence of the skin by targeting as well the folliculitis that appeares through the removal of the hair using other depilation methods. The results are visible from the first session, regardless of the skin and hair type. While we recommend that sessions are performed starting with the cold season, for faster results as the skin is lighter in colour, we can safely use PlatinumGMT Diode Laser in summer as well, with the condition that the skin is only lightly tanned and limiting sun exposure before and after the treatments.
Following up of the first treatment, you should return every 4 weeks so that the AVRA specialist can evaluate the area and determine if another hair removal session can be conducted. This time can vary depending on each patient’s unique hair growth cycle, as well as on the previous session’s results.
The hair may change in appearance, for example from thick to thin and this will be considered when setting the treatment parameters for subsequent sessions. After a few treatment sessions, the time between sessions can be prolonged to allow the hair to grow in the area to be treated. This will depend on the area of the body and on the patient’s individual characteristics (man/woman, hormonal problems, etc.)
