Course of treatment for laser hair removal with the Alexandrite laser
Thanks to the innovative cooling technology of the Alexandrite laser, no anesthesia is required. It’s completely normal for slight skin redness to occur due to the heat generated during the treatment, and these usually fade within two days. The duration of a session depends on the size of the specific body area. Treating the upper lip takes only about 10 minutes, while a treatment on the legs might take around an hour.
What should be considered when getting laser hair removal with the Alexandrite laser?
4 weeks before the treatment, intensive sun exposure through sunbathing or solarium visits should be avoided. This is based on the technology of the alexandrite laser, because with tanned skin the light impulses are blocked. Thus, they can no longer reach the hair root and the treatment would not only be ineffective but would also involve a high risk of burns.
In addition, all hair removal methods that remove the hair root should also be avoided. This includes epilating, plucking, waxing but also the use of bleaching agents and depilatory creams. Shaving, on the other hand, is possible before the treatment. If permanent hair removal is to take place in the facial area, we ask you to remove makeup from the skin before the treatment.
Hair growth cycle
Since hair has a specific growth cycle permanent hair removal* with light will always require several sessions. Hair has three cycles: growth phase, transition phase and rest phase.
Only hairs that are in the growth phase can be treated. This is only a maximum of one third of the hair. The remaining hairs are found in one of the other two phases and must be treated at another time. After four to eight weeks the hairs change their cycle, and a new session can take place. Thus, it always takes several sessions to completely remove all hairs.
Further important hints for the alexandrite laser
skin and hair nature
Especially people with light skin and dark hair benefit from a treatment with the alexandrite laser. Here, the distribution of melanin is optimal for the laser, so that the bundled light waves can easily pass through the light skin and the dye of the hair can transport them to the hair root. These are heated strongly for a short time so that denaturation takes place. Thus, a chain reaction is triggered, whereby the scavenger cells (macrophages) of the body are activated to remove the cause of the inflammation, the treated hair root. This prevents the hair from regenerating.
Each body reacts differently to treatment with light, but generally dark and thick hair is optimal for treatment with the alexandrite laser. If this is the case, there is nothing to prevent treatment on any part of the body, such as the legs, neck or chest area, bikini line or even the face.
Hair colors and effectiveness in laser hair removal
Laser hair removal for very light and gray hair
Laser hair removal using the Alexandrite laser is highly effective, but there are certain factors to consider. Individuals with very light or gray hair, where melanin is lacking, may not be suitable candidates for Alexandrite laser treatment. Similarly, this method may be less suitable for individuals with darker skin. We understand the importance of individual differences. Therefore, we offer alternative technologies tailored to your needs that still provide efficient hair removal. Our experts are here to advise you on the best options for laser hair removal.
