What is laser epilation?
Laser epilation is a fast, gentle and efficient manner of removing unwanted hair with long-lasting effects.
Laser epilation is the only globally recognized and safe method for the permanent removal of facial and body hairs. Laser epilation can be used for both men and women, on all body parts, except the area around the eyes.
The laser directs concentrated light into the hair follicle. The light is then converted into heat, thereby preventing the ability of the hair to grow, without disturbing or damaging the skin surface.
At DermaVille aesthetic center we use the latest and most efficient medical laser in the world – Lumenis LightSheer Desire
What are the advantages of Lumenis LightSheer Desire Laser compared to other epilation devices?
Due to its design, which allows it to be used for treating even very sensitive skin, Lumenis LightSheer Desire laser is reliable and efficient and is recommended for treatments on any part of the body. It achieves maximum results, regardless of the skin type.
Lumenis LightSheer Desire laser is a laser of the latest generation with a cooling device that soothes the skin and makes the epilation painless. In addition to the cooling device, it also has a built-in vacuum probe for larger skin areas, which enables achieving maximum results, and reduces the duration of the treatment.
What is the difference between Lumenis LightSheer Desire laser and IPL?
Lumenis LightSheer Desire laser enables a complete hair removal, while hairs treated with IPL grow slower, but after a short period of time they are present again. IPL emits a high temperature which can cause skin damage, whereas Lumenis LightSheer Desire laser has a built-in cooling system which makes the treatment pleasant. The IPL light beam is “scattered” and it has an uncontrolled effect on the surrounding skin which is not treated, while the laser beam is controlled and focused directly towards the hair follicle. Unlike IPL, Lumenis LightSheer Desire laser can successfully be used for treatments of all skin types.
What is important to know about sunbathing and laser epilation?
It is possible to have a sun tan and to undergo a laser epilation. However, it is better not to have a sun tan, because if the skin colour is similar to the hair colour, more treatments would be required to remove all unwanted hairs.
Two weeks before and two weeks after the epilation, clients undergoing the treatment should not expose themselves to the sun. Otherwise, there is the possibility of hyper/hypo pigmentation or scarring, and sun protection factor 50 should be used. Sun protection factor 50 should be used after the epilation, upon every exposure to the sun, as well as in the period of two weeks before the epilation to keep the skin colour light.
Even if it is a cloudy day it is mandatory to use the sun protection factor. Immediately after the epilation, activities in the gym, sauna, jacuzzi and pools should be avoided for the period of 24h-48h. After that period of time, all activities are safe. If you follow the instructions closely, it is safe to have a laser epilation treatment during the summer.
Proper preparation for laser epilation
Hairs should not be plucked from the root (waxing, using tweezers) or bleached, 3-4 weeks before laser epilation treatment. Shaving, trimming using scissors or the application of depilation creams are allowed. It is desirable to have about 1mm long hairs for the very treatment.
How many laser epilation treatments are required?
Since the best results are achieved when the hair is actively growing, treatment should be repeated after 4 to 6 weeks. The series usually includes 3 to 5 treatments.
