Laser hair removal

Unwanted hair growth is a common concern for many people. Shaving, plucking, waxing, or using hormonal treatments are often attempted to manage hair growth. Laser hair removal now offers a solution to reduce hair growth without the often painful side effects associated with traditional hair removal methods. Dr. V. Bansi has chosen the MedArt diode laser, which has been identified through clinical studies as the most effective hair removal laser. The treatments are performed by experienced laser therapists.

What can you achieve with laser hair removal?

With laser hair removal, unwanted hair growth can be reduced by up to 95% in the treated areas. Any remaining hairs that may be present can become thinner and lighter in color.

Which body parts can be treated?

Virtually all body parts, such as the face, bikini line, legs, arms, underarms, and back, can be treated with laser light.

Does it hurt?

In most cases, a warm, tingling sensation is experienced during the treatment. After the laser hair removal session, a light red rash (erythema) may be visible, but it usually disappears quickly.

How many treatments do you need?

The hair growth cycle consists of different phases: the growth phase, the regression phase, and the resting phase. For optimal results, your hair should be treated with laser light during the growth phase. On average, it takes about 6 to 8 laser treatments with 5 weeks between each session. Some individuals may be less suitable for laser hair removal due to their hair type or color. People with fair skin and dark hair are the most suitable candidates for this treatment. Those with white or light blonde hair tend to have the least successful results. The laser therapist will discuss this with you during a free and non-binding intake consultation.

What to do before and after the treatment?

From four to five weeks before starting the laser hair removal treatment, it is advised to avoid plucking, tweezing, or other hair removal methods. Laser light is absorbed by the pigment in the hair, and if hairs have been recently removed, the laser may not effectively target the hair follicles. On the day of the treatment, it is recommended to shave the area beforehand. Additionally, it is not advisable to sunbathe or expose the skin to the sun for at least two weeks prior to the treatment. Laser beams are attracted to tanned skin and may not work effectively. After the treatment, it is advised to avoid active sunbathing for 5 weeks. Limited sun exposure with the use of sunscreen is acceptable.

How does the treatment process unfold?

During the treatment, the laser emits a highly concentrated beam of light onto the skin. The pigment (melanin) in the hair absorbs the laser light, which is then converted into heat. This heat effectively destroys the hair follicles. To ensure comfort and protect the skin, a specially cooled laser tip is used to cool the skin during the laser treatment.

This prevents the skin from turning red and provides a pleasant sensation during the laser treatment. Approximately 1 to 2 weeks after the laser treatment, the treated hairs may start to loosen and fall out.

Dr. V. Bansi has opted for the well-known diode laser technology compared to IPL (intense pulsed light). Diode laser technology has demonstrated advantages over IPL treatments.

The diode laser has been identified as the most effective hair removal laser through clinical studies and is widely used in hospitals, private clinics, and skincare practices.
