A woman's body that is well taken care of is usually associated with a smooth, soft skin, without superfluous hair. Since hair most often grows on such areas of the body where it is unwanted, millions of women around the world are constantly confronted with the problem of how to most effectively get rid of it. However, an increasing number of men are faced with excessive hair growth as well. They are troubled with hair growing on their shoulders, back, chest and elsewhere. Unfortunately, methods of hair removal known up to know were painful and, in particular, inefficient in the long term. The time and money invested in these methods have been anything but negligible and often resulted in ingrown hair and various inflammations. Before the introduction of laser treatment, the only method of permanent hair removal was electroepilation, which is very painful and takes a long time. Moreover, it only works on a single hair and is therefore only suitable for smaller areas of face. It often happens that after treatment scars and blemishes appear.
The development of laser technologies has shown that laser epilation is the most effective method of permanent hair removal in therapeutic and aesthetic terms. In order to achieve the optimal results, a high quality laser and a professional and experienced therapist are required.
Our Beauty Center fulfills all the conditions necessary to achieve the best results. Laser epilation is performed with high power medical diode laser LightSheer-XC LUMENIS LightSheer-ET Inc, USA, which represents a state-of-the art technology and the first and best choice for professionals worldwide in the field of laser epilation. In our Center the laser epilation is performed by Mrs. Polona Mozetič, senior nurse and master of cosmetic care, with her colleagues. Mrs. Mozetič is a pioneer of laser epilation in Slovenia. Performing it since 1999, she has a vast amount of knowledge and experience, and boasts satisfied clients.
The diode laser light beam with a precise wavelength that is absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicle by way of selective thermolysis destroys the generative cells responsible for hair re-growth (Figure 1). Prior to treatment, the treated area is shaved (Figure 2). During treatment the epidermis is pressed and cooled with a special sapphire tip in order to protect the skin and improve the efficacy of laser epilation (Figure 3). The laser beam emission time lasts only a fraction of a second, enough to heat the hair and destroy the follicle’s capacity to regenerate it (Figure 4). The result is a permanent reduction of hair on the treated area.
