Laser Hair Removal

Laser Hair Removal

This is a procedure that uses a concentrated beam of light to remove unwanted hair. During laser hair removal, the laser emits light that is absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in the hair. This light energy is converted to heat which then damages the hair follicles that produce hairs.

Laser hair removal is most effective on light skinned people who have dark hair but can be successfully used on all skin types.

How many sessions are needed?

Hair growth is in phases and it is necessary that the laser procedure is carried out during the active growth phase which is known as the ANAGEN phase. This is because it is the growth phase when there is presence of melanin in the hair shaft which is target needed to get rid of the hair. As a result of this, multiple sessions are needed to get to almost all of the hairs. Factors that should be considered when getting laser hair removal are hormone imbalances, pregnancy and resistance to insulin.

Now available at Skintisfaction Aesthetic Dermatology and Laser Clinic uses the laser equipment called Aerolase Neolite machine. The laser energy with machine is emitted as ultra-rapid pulses lasting mere microseconds. This advanced technology allows the skin to cool off between blasts, making Aerolase the most comfortable treatment available in the aesthetic industry.

The treatment is customized to your skin’s specific concerns, so whether you simply want to keep your skin glowing and prevent signs of aging or you have specific concerns you would like to address, Neoskin can be tailored for you.

How many sessions are needed?

The number of treatments needed varied from person to person depending on wants, needs and the degree to which skin aging has occurred. For most patients, it is recommended that they undergo a treatment course of 4-6 sessions. Once the results you want have been achieved, subsequent sessions may be needed to maintain results.

2. For Acne treatment

Aerolase Neoclear therapy is proven to deliver excellent clinical results for all skin types. Outcomes may vary depending upon your skin condition and various other factors.

How does Neoclear acne therapy work?

It works by reducing the severity of current outbreaks while also reducing the frequency and severity of future outbreaks. Its laser energy penetrates deeply into the skin, generating heat around the sebaceous glands. The heat reduces sebum output, suppresses inflammation, and destroys the P. acne bacteria. Shortly after the treatment, you should start to see a reduction in swelling, and the overall number of acne lesions should decrease.

Why is Neoclear Acne therapy different?

Neoclear acne laser therapy is a highly effective and safe way to treat your acne without having to experience side effects commonly associated with traditional therapies. Unlike other lasers, the Neoclear 650 microsecond technology provides a gentle, effective and sanitary treatment because the handpiece does not come in contact with the skin so quickly that most patients say that, during treatment, they feel nothing more than a mild warming sensation on their skin.

Other skin conditions the Aerolase machine can treat include but not limited to: acne scars, facial veins, psoriasis and fungal nail infections.
