One of the most reliable and effective ways of getting rid of unwanted hair today is the laser epilation. The most effective laser type in epilation is the Alexandrite 755 nm laser beam.
Your hair colour and skin type are the most important factors for successful laser epilation. People with light-skinned, dark-coloured hairs are more likely to achieve results, while those with darker skin can achieve successful results with even more care.
First, you should decide if you are eligible for laser epilation. Your medical history, illness/condition, and medications you use are important. Practice begins after you have been informed about risks, benefits, and expectations.
If you are sunbathing in the sun or in a solarium, you should wait until your skin colour is turned its natural colour as necessary for laser hair removal. This period lasts at least 2-4 weeks.
It is ideal that the hair can be spotted for laser epilation to be successful. This time means 1-3 days after the razor application and 3-4 weeks after the wax application.
You should definitely wear the laser protective eyewear that has been given to you to avoid any unwanted problems during epilation. The discomfort you feel during laser application will be relieved by cooling, but if your pain threshold is low and the uneasiness you are feeling is at a high level, anesthetic cream pain that can be applied 45 minutes before application will provide less hearing. Burned hair smell that you will also hear during practice is normal and inevitable.
The application time depends on the size of the area to be scanned by the laser beam in your body. The smallest region, the upper lip, takes 1-2 minutes while the largest region takes 30-45 minutes.
You will not need bandage or any medication after laser hair removal. The redness that will disappear after the first few hours and the point bumps that match the hair follicles are normal reactions.
The most common practice to overcome adversities is to apply a moisturizing lotion after a warm shower in the evening.
With dermatological dressings, moisturizers and sun protectors applied after application, it is aimed that the results are perfect.
Physical exercise should be avoided after epilation. Sweating can cause an increase in feelings of restlessness due to laser.
Depending on your skin type, it is necessary to avoid 1-2 weeks exposure of the laser epilation areas to direct sunlight. Applying SPF 30 and sun protectors in 2-3 hours will also protect the sun from harmful rays.
We do not recommend any method that will take hairs from their roots on application area between sessions.
The incidence of epilation-related complications is 1% and can be listed as follows;
Darkening of skin colour; It is a rare occurrence and is temporary.
Opening the skin color: This can be seen in patients with dark skin. It can occur when the laser power is higher than needed or when it is used on a tanned skin. While being temporary, sometimes it can go on for months.
Water filled bubbles and burning: Extremely rare and temporary.
Crusting: Rare and temporary.
Hair structure change: Sometimes new feathers may come out lighter. It is expected to disappear completely in subsequent applications. Particularly in the face and neck region applications, the feathers defined as quince hair should not be treated.
