Laser Hair Removal Explained
Laser Beauty Room offers laser hair removal in our Leicester clinic. We use the Candela GentleYAG HR Laser for Permanent Hair Reduction.
For all skin types the Candela GentleYAG laser can eliminate the need for shaving, plucking, waxing, or depilatory creams.
The Candela GentleYAG HR Laser can be used on any part of the body.
Background to the use of Lasers
Lasers have been used for many years for a variety of medical and cosmetic procedures including treatment of facial and leg veins, age spots, and skin rejuvenation.
The Candela GentleYAG HR System, a revolutionary long-pulse high-energy Nd:YAG laser, emits a gentle beam of light that passes through the skin to the hair follicle where it is absorbed.
The laser energy is transformed into heat, which destroys the hair follicle. The skin is protected during treatment by a Dynamic Cooling Device (DCD) .
Laser Beauty Room has 2 methods of cooling which provide our clients with comfort during treatment.
How we treat you:
We use the GentleYAG HR’s hand piece to touch the skin and deliver the laser light. We also use either a cooling cryogen spray or Zimmer cooler which will cool the skin just before each laser pulse.
The procedure can take as little as a few minutes for small areas, up to 30 minutes for large areas.
The treated area may become pinkish or reddish within 30 minutes of treatment; this may last for a few hours.
In addition to this a cooling gel is applied to the skin after treatment.
Number of Treatments Recommended
Hair grows in cycles.
6 sessions of treatment are required for the best results, as the process is only effective on hair during the early growing cycle.
Laser hair removal works only on the hairs that are in an active growth stage. Hair Follicles that are in the dormant or non-growth stage will not be affected by the laser.
Additional treatments ensure the treatment of hairs that have returned to an active growth stage.
Are Results Permanent?
Laser hair removal provides long term hair reduction. You can expect to see at least 90% reduction in hair after 6 treatments. The remaining hair grows back much finer and lighter than before treatment.
