How is it laser hair removal procedure?
Before starting the treatment, a brief consultation will be made to ensure that there are no incompatibilities or skin pathologies that do not allow the correct performance of the diode laser procedure. A skin sensitivity test will also be carried out to determine the level of tolerance and skin reaction to the laser in order to avoid skin injuries or aggressions and to detect the appropriate level of power to apply in order to ensure maximum effectiveness.
Through a head adapted to the area of the body on which the treatment affects, the laser is applied that emits pulses per fraction of a second, to allow the hair to absorb the light and heat up. It is precisely the heat that damages the stem and bulb and prevents the hair from growing again. During this process, many follicles can be treated simultaneously, so this is much faster than traditional laser. After the session, a repair cream is applied to calm and hydrate the skin, but it is very common and normal to notice a slight redness or inflammation of the treated areas. It is a sign that the treatment has been effective. These effects will disappear in approximately 72 hours.
Some darker or tanned skin may experience small blisters or blisters that disappear after a few weeks. The frequency between sessions will depend on the recommended treatment for each situation and according to the intended results per area. The sessions last between 30 and 40 minutes on average and allow immediate reincorporation and without significant discomfort to daily life.
