Epilation with laser and IPL (intense pulsed light) works well for durable epilation all over the world.
Theoretically it is based on the fact that the beam of light used in medical practice is absorbed only in dark dyes. The beam of laser can go through the skin without any problems. In the same time, it is absorbed in the dark pigment of hair follicles (melanin) and in the dark tattoos.
As an action of illumination, the active, growing hairs will fall out of the treated area after 1-2 weeks. These active hair follicles will die and they will not grow again even in the future. On the other hand, hair follicles in sleeping stage do not contain any dye, that is why the treatment cannot be efficient against them. This is why treatment has to be repeated several times to reach durable results.
After more treatments you can see less and less number of hairs and you have to wait longer and longer for new hairs to appear. You can experience them more and more rarely and to be weaker. The final result is smooth skin without any hairs.
It is a special feature of our clinic that we use a kind of method standing out of the others:
The most efficient way of durable epilation is ESTELUX. It is so efficient that epilated transvestite artists finally could have feminine skin.
The ESTELUX epilation is efficient to hide hair growth on the face, on the breasts; and the underarm, the bikini line and the legs can also be treated with this method.
The treatment is fully hygienic; there is no danger of infection, because treatment is done with beams of light. In comparison with the treatment with resin, it causes less discomfort.
In case of too tanned and dark skin, the strong beam of light can cause symptoms of slight tunnedness. This is why we apply cooling wet pack after treatment.
Important things to be done before treatment:
Patients should come to the treatment with hair shaven 1-2 days before, most ideally in a bristly state.
Before epilation, patients must not sunbathe or go to solarium at least for three weeks.
Patients must not use tanning creams for one week before the treatment.
During the last month before treatment, patients should remove their hair only with a razor. In case of removing hair with forceps or with rosin or applying chemical treatment during this time, the epilation can be less efficient.
Before treatment, patients should avoid bleaching their hair.
From the day before the treatment, patients must not apply any make-up, body lotion, anti-perspirant or light-protective agents onto the skin area to be treated.
Patients must not wear any jewels, body jewels on the skin area to be treated.
Things to be done after treatment:
After treatment, slight erythema can be observed. You can apply skin calmatives or cooling cream if necessary.
During 1-2 days after treatment, you are asked to avoid the use of cosmetics and irritating, allergizing agents.
During 1 month after treatment, you should use light protective cream on the treated area.
During 1 week after treatment you must not sunbathe or go to solarium and must not use any tanning creams.
You should avoid irritations (hot bath, sauna, massage).
You must not apply hair removal with a razor as long as the erythema is over.
After treatment you must not remove hair with forceps or with rosin or you must not apply any chemical epilation or bleaching to achieve good results.
Other medical applications of epilation with laser:
In serious cases, abnormal hirsutism can be a symptom of hormonal disorders. Sometimes further examinations can be necessary before symptomatic hair removal.
In case of hirsutism not reacting to any medical or other treatments, epilation with laser can be an efficient method for hair removal
