What is it?
When we consider doing laser hair removal, the most critical aspect is not only its effectiveness but also the safety of the procedure, since it must be performed in a medical environment and following a protocol that offers therapeutic success and satisfies the needs and expectations of the patient with a permanent hair removal.
The use of laser devices for depilation is a well-known procedure due to the experience in its use and to its high success rate in relation to the photo depilation.
What does it consist of?
Before the first session, we performed a test to make sure that the patient’s skin is fit for this process and that it isn’t photosensitive, that is, it doesn’t present allergies to its use.
With laser hair removal it’s possible to damage the hair follicle by inhibiting hair growth.
For people who want it, we apply topical anesthesia to minimize the small discomfort that can arise with the application of the laser.
How many sessions are needed?
The number of sessions to perform will depend on several factors, such as skin type and the type, color, distribution and thickness of hair.
Generally, it will take between 6 and 8 sessions to get definitive results.
