Diode Laser Hair Removal
Medico Global Clinic offers the latest technology in Diode Laser hair removal.
Diode laser hair removal is a cosmetic procedure that uses a specialized laser to remove unwanted hair from the body. The diode laser emits a concentrated beam of light that is absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in the hair follicles. This damages the follicles and prevents further hair growth.
The procedure is most effective on people with light skin and dark hair, as the laser is attracted to the melanin in the hair follicle. It may not be as effective on people with light-colored hair, such as blonde or gray, as there is less melanin in the follicles.
The procedure is typically performed in a dermatologist's or aesthetician's office. Before the procedure, a numbing cream may be applied to the skin to reduce discomfort. The laser is then applied to the skin in small pulses, and patients may feel a slight stinging or burning sensation. The duration of the procedure depends on the size of the area being treated, but it typically takes 30-60 minutes.
Diode laser hair removal is a safe and effective method of hair removal, but it may require multiple sessions to achieve optimal results.
The number of sessions required depends on factors such as the thickness and density of the hair, as well as the area being treated. Most people require 6-8 sessions spaced 4-8 weeks apart.
The benefits of diode laser hair removal include:
Long-lasting results: Unlike other methods of hair removal, such as shaving or waxing, diode laser hair removal provides long-lasting results. After completing the recommended number of treatment sessions, many people experience a significant reduction in hair growth, and some may achieve permanent hair removal.
Precision: The diode laser can target specific areas, making it an effective option for removing hair from small or hard-to-reach areas, such as the upper lip or bikini area.
Speed: The laser emits a concentrated beam of light that can target multiple hair follicles at once, making the procedure much faster than other methods of hair removal.
Comfort: The diode laser has a cooling mechanism that can help minimize discomfort during the procedure. While some people may experience mild discomfort during the procedure, it is generally well-tolerated and does not require anesthesia.
Convenience: Diode laser hair removal is a convenient option for people who want to remove unwanted hair from their body. Unlike shaving or waxing, which need to be done regularly, diode laser hair removal provides long-lasting results with minimal maintenance required.
While diode laser hair removal is generally considered safe, it can have potential side effects such as skin irritation, redness, and swelling.
