What is Laser Hair Removal?
The method that provides permanent and healthy removal of unwanted hair with laser energy is called laser epilation. Laser epilation is used in various types of machines. Alexandrite laser, Nd Yag laser and Diode laser are the most widely used laser machines. Alexandrite laser affects the hair follicles in the area where it is applied and prevents hair growth and is especially effective on people with light skin color and dark hair structure. While Nd yag laser was initially used only for people with dark skin color, it started to be used for all skin types over time. Thanks to the long wavelength laser energy used in the diode laser, it is effective on both thick and thin hairy hairs. This laser device is also used in hair treatment due to hormonal reasons.
How is Laser Hair Removal Done? For Which Regions Can It Be Applied?
The area to be treated, skin type, color and hair structure are examined and the device to be used is decided. The area to be processed is cleared. After choosing the suitable device for you among the laser epilation types, gel is applied to the area to be applied and the laser beam of a certain wavelength is applied to the hair follicles and the hair follicles in the treated area are dried and destroyed. Epilation can be done in all areas where your skin structure and hair condition are suitable. While it can be applied to the entire face area except for the eye sockets in women, it can also be applied to the arm, armpit, leg and leg, genital area, waist, belly, upper hand and foot areas. Laser hair removal is also available for men. Back, shoulder, arm, leg, armpit, beard, chest, neck, nape, ear, upper and middle of the muscle, on the hand, and on the feet are the areas where the application can be made in men.
Who Is Suitable for Laser Epilation, Who Is Not Suitable For?
Laser epilation can be applied by selecting the appropriate laser device for every skin type, every hair type and age. In this respect, although it is a safe and comfortable method for individuals, it may not be applied to people with some special conditions and diseases. It is not considered appropriate for pregnant women and those who have suspected pregnancy, those who have hormone disorders, those who receive infertility treatment, have an active wound on their skin, have skin cancer risk, those who have been in the sun for a long time, and those who have used Roaccutane pills in the last 6 months.
Things to Know in Laser Hair Removal Treatment
Your skin color, hair color, and the density and thickness of your hair are among the factors that affect the duration of the session. In addition, since the area where the laser is applied also affects the duration of the session, you can get efficient results with an average of 6-8 sessions, although it varies from person to person. If the right and safe dose is chosen by the experts using the right methods, there will be no traces of burns or spots. For safe and effective results, it is important that the hair removal device model is compatible with your skin and hair color, and it is selected by considering your hair density. If you go to epilation sessions regularly, you can get rid of unwanted hair permanently. However, hair formation may occur again due to the drugs used in time, pregnancy or hormonal disorders. Shedding begins within 2 weeks after the procedure. However, the shedding starts gradually, not all at once.
What should be considered before and after laser epilation?
Waxing, epilator or peeling should not be applied to the area to be applied before laser for a month. The area should be shaved 3 days before the session. After epilation, some issues should be taken into consideration in order to protect against laser epilation damage. After laser epilation, the area should be moistened with moisturizers, and sunscreen with a factor of 30 or higher should be applied to protect it from the sun. Hot water should not be exposed for 24 hours. If swelling and edema occur after the procedure, cold ice can be applied. In addition, sports and heavy movements should not be done for 2-3 days after the procedure.
