PERMANENT HAIR REMOVAL FOR MEN & WOMEN

LASER HAIR REMOVAL

Unwanted hair is a common problem, for both men and women. Frequent hair removal tasks including shaving, depilatories, plucking, and waxing can be time-consuming, inconvenient and often painful. At best, these methods offer only temporary results.

Laser hair removal gives you effective, permanent hair reduction anywhere on your body including the face, legs, back, underarms or bikini area. Treatments are quick and easy letting you get back to your everyday activities.

Hair follicles that are in the anagen, or active growth phase, have more pigment and absorb more energy, and typically respond best to treatments. For this reason, it takes multiple treatments to achieve the best results.

Hair growth varies among individuals and is affected by the following factors: Age, Weight, Metabolism, Hormones, Medications, and Ethnic origin.

LIGHTSHEER LASER

The LightSheer diode laser is known as The Golden Standard, its effectiveness has been proven since 1999.

  • This diode laser is capable of effectively and permanently eliminating unwanted hair in a reliable, and virtually painless fashion.
  • The  diode 800 nanometer laser  targets hair pigment, this is the substance that gives hair its  color.
  • The laser delivers a high energy pulse to the hair follicle and inactivates it permanently. This prevents hair from growing.
  • The laser is most effective when hair is in  an active growth phase.
  • The more pigmentend the hair the better the result. For this reason the darker and thicker the hair the better the result.

TREATED AREAS

  • Almost every region of the body can be treated except eyebrows and  eyelashes as they are too close to the eye. In some cases a limited part of the brow may be done by the most experienced technician. You will be asked to wear special protection.
  • The best results are  underarms, bikini, brazilian bikini and lower leg. This is because the hairs in those areas are larger and darker than in most other parts of the body.
  • Some areas are harder to treat than others but this can vary from one person to the next. The more the hair is thin and blond the harder it is to treat. For example the upper lip , upper thighs, buttocks and arms.
  • The rule of thumb is that people with dark hair and light skin represent the best candidates for laser hair removal with a diode laser.
  • People with very dark skin are not good candidates for laser hair removal. Dark skin acts as a filter that does not allow sufficient energy to reach the hair follicle. It is ineffective in this type of patient and can cause burns.

FAQs

Are anaesthetic creams safe?

Anaesthetic creams contain Lidocaine (also known as Xylocaine) or Tetracaine (also known as Amethocaine). At toxic doses these medications can cause seizures or cardiac arrhythmias.

For this reason we recommend a sparing use of these agents. We also recommend applying these agents at the clinic 20-30 minutes before your treatment. You could relax and surf the web on your laptop in our complimentary Wi-Fi internet zone

Are Laser Hair Removal results permanent?

The LightSheer diode is the most effective laser on the market – it remains the gold standard for laser hair removal.

Clients can expect a permanent reduction in hair growth. It is not possible to guarantee that hair will not regrow at a later date. Factors such as hormonal changes, pregnancy, weight gain and age related changes can cause regrowth or the transformation of fine vellus hair to thicker more visible hair. If regrowth occurs, those areas can be retreated by laser with good results.

How can I optimize the results of my Laser Hair Removal treatment?
  • 1 month before and 2 weeks after your treatment avoid exposure to the sun or UV rays from tanning beds or lamps. Do not apply any tanning creams or lotions 1 month before your treatment. Apply sun cream with UV protections of SPF 30 or more before and after your treatment.
  • Let your skin rest. Avoid exfoliation, rubbing or scratching the skin to be treated. Clean and shave gently.
  • 1 or 2 weeks following your treatment, the treated hairs will come out of their follicle. You may at first may think this is a regrowth but the hairs will fall out naturally .You can shave but this is not necessary.
  • Between treatments, avoid waxing or removing hair with tweezers as this can cause inflammation and predispose to hyper or hypopigmentation. You can shave gently.
How does the LightSheer Laser eliminate hair?

Light produced by the laser at 800 nanometers is absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicle. The laser delivers its energy in a fraction of a second. This is just enough time to destroy the hair follicle without causing damage to surrounding tissues. The damage to the follicle slows the growth of hair and most often causes permanent cessation of hair growth.

The patented cooling head of the hand piece prevents damage to the upper skin layers during the treatment.

How many treatments does it take to achieve permanent hair removal?

On average it takes 6-8 treatments to achieve a 90% permanent hair reduction with a diode laser. This is significantly better than IPL as this type of treatment requires between 10 -12 treatments for a comparable result.

The laser affects hairs that are in the growth phase (anagene phase). It is estimated that at any given moment only 15-20% of hairs in a given area are in the anagene phase. It will thus take 6 treatments to effectively treat all the hairs in a chosen area.

Results vary with either type of treatment and depend on compliance with recommended treatment intervals but can also be affected by genetic and hormonal factors.

How much time does each Laser Hair Removal treatment take?

Treatment times vary from one area to another. For example underarms take 15 minutes while half legs take 45 minutes and a back takes 1 ½ hours

Compared to electrolysis, treatments are quicker and less demanding.

Is Laser Hair Removal painful?

For the majority of people, laser treatments are not very painful. The feeling is described as being hit by an elastic band with every pulsation of the laser. Pain thresholds vary from one person to the next and from one part of the body to the next, but most often the treatment is well tolerated.

Some people prefer to apply anaesthetic creams before their treatment.

What are my choices for Anaesthetic creams?

Some people prefer to use an anaesthetic agent before their treatment. The most popular choices are EMLA (Lidocaine 2, 4 or 5%) or Maxilene (Lidocaine 5%).

At Clinique Revolution we offer Lidocaine 5% in different formulations and in combination with other anaesthetic agents.

What are the alternatives to hair removal?
  • Shaving A simple method, which does not affect the stiffness, thickness, and the cycle of hair growth, but remains a temporary solution and that requires repeated interventions to keep skin smooth.
  • Tweezing Method tedious, painful and impractical for large areas.
  • Waxing This treatment can be performed on larger body parts. Smooth skin remains for 2 to 5 weeks. This method is relatively painful. For most people, it is unpleasant to have to deal with visible hairs between waxing.
  • Electrolysis (Blend) Method of introducing a small needle along the hair follicle up before destroying the nutritional base of the hair by thermolysis (heat). The treatment is very tedious, because you can not treat a hair at a time.
What are the most frequent complications of Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal is safe. However complications such as burns, hypo or hyper pigmentation and scarring can occur. These complications are often mild and temporary.

If you have sensitive skin, please advise our personnel.

Burns: To minimize the occurrence of burns. Avoid exposure to the sun or UV rays from tanning beds & lamp. Do not use tanning creams or sprays 1 month prior and 2 weeks after your treatments. Tanning causes skin cells to produce pigment. This pigment can absorb part of the laser’s energy destined for the hair follicle causing superficial burns and may diminish the effectiveness of the treatment.

If you are exposed to the sun, a UV source or tanning products please advise your technician so that she may reduce the power delivered by the laser.

Hypopigmentation: Is an area of the skin that appears less colored than normal skin.

Hyper pigmentation : Is an area of skin that appears darker than normal skin.

To reduce the incidence of either of these conditions avoid all irritation to the skin before and after treatments. Injured skin has a tendency to produce more or less pigment than healthy skin. Avoid exposure to the sun or UV rays, abrasions, scratching or rubbing area of skin that will be or have recently been treated. Always wear sun lotions with UV protection SPF 30 or more (especially in the summer).

These dark or light spots are mostly of an esthetic concern and are often temporary. However, resolution can take up to 12 months. If spontaneous resolution does not occur, different treatment options are available.

Our physicians will assure support and follow up should any of these complications occur.

What are the recommended Laser Hair Removal treatment intervals?

Medical studies have shown that the most effective interval is 6 weeks (40-45 days). This coincides with the anagene (active) phase of the hair cycle.

* Hair removal using a 800-nm diode laser: comparison at different treatment intervals of 45, 60, and 90 days. – Bouzari N – Int J Dermatol – 01-JAN-2005; 44(1): 50-3

What is the difference between a diode LASER and an IPL in Laser Hair Removal?

LASER is an acronym for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laser) A laser is a machine capable of producing a special type of light in a specific part of the spectrum of light. The diode laser produces a light in the 800 nanometer range which specifically seeks the pigment in dark hair and does not affect surrounding tissues – this is best for hair removal.

IPL (Intense Pulse Light) works in a similar fashion. It is a type of lamp that produces a flash of light in the same range as the laser but is less powerful. IPLs are generally less effective than lasers; it takes more treatments to accomplish similar hair reduction.

Who is the best candidate for Laser Hair Removal?

Almost all skin types in men and women are candidates for laser hair removal!

Light-skinned people with Vellus hair (peach fuzz), and with light hair or light blonde hair, do not have enough pigment for the laser to be effective.

Black people have too much pigment and the laser is unable to penetrate deeply enough to be effective. The energy is absorbed at the level of the skin and can cause burns.
