incompatibility of a shave, acne
In many people, the hair roots inflame after shaving, for example in the groin and in the genital area. Even ingrown hair can become a problem. In this case, laser hair removal can eliminate the inflammation. For acne vulgaris or acne inversa, laser treatment can have a direct anti-inflammatory effect in addition to hair removal.
Cosmetic hair removal
For many people, flawless and silky smooth skin is an ideal of beauty that wants to be realized especially in summer. You are welcome to come to us if you want to get rid of annoying hair in the intimate area or face. A diode laser with a wavelength of 800-810 nanometers is ideal for permanent hair removal on European skin types. In sensitive regions, treatment under local anesthesia (gel or injection) is possible.
How can hair be removed with the laser?
The laser applies energy-rich light to the hairy parts of the body. The light energy is absorbed by the melanin, the dye of the hair, and leads to a heating of the hair root above the critical temperature threshold of 60°. The hair root no longer produces hair.
However, many of our hair roots are in a "sleeping" state. If hair is in the growth phase or has just fallen out, the laser cannot work. Therefore, several treatments at intervals of four to eight weeks are required to achieve complete hair removal.
