Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is a great alternative to depilation by shaving or waxing - a tedious activity that is usually time-consuming and sometimes quite painful. By investing in laser hair removal procedures, you not only save yourself countless hours epilating at home or in a professional beauty studio, but you also economise in the long term by not spending money on cosmetic procedures, shaving creams, razors and a whole bunch of unsustainable products that pollute the environment.
What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is a complex procedure that uses light energy, emitted from the lasers; the pigment of the hair (melanin) absorbs it and is then turned into heat, destroying the hair follicles without actually harming the skin. The procedure aims to remove the hair from preferred areas of the body. With the help of premium lasers that have an integrated cooling system, the experience is a lot more comfortable and painless.
The treatment may, however, take up to several sessions, depending on the colour, thickness and density of the hair. The hairs usually fall out within two weeks after the treatment and then a new cycle of hair growth begins. For optimal results, a minimum of 6 laser hair reduction treatments is recommended. Naturally, they must be performed in extended intervals of time.

What are the Benefits of Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is a non-invasive, painless procedure that provides long-term results. It stops hair growth for months or in some cases - up to a year. Regular laser treatments can actually slow hair growth so in time fewer and fewer procedures can get the job done. That certainly has some undeniable financial advantages and saves a lot of time in the long run that would otherwise be spent waxing or shaving.
One of the main benefits of laser hair reduction is that larger areas (i.e full back or full legs) can be treated in a short amount of time. In addition to having a time-saving and pain-free experience, the result that you can expect is a much smoother and silkier skin without stubble or razor bumps.
Is the Procedure Safe?
One of the myths regarding laser hair removal is that the radiation, emitted from the lasers, can cause the formation of cancer cells, but there is no medical proof to support this claim. According to the majority of practicing doctors, laser hair removal is a completely safe procedure that does not cause cancer.
Another myth, which can be easily debunked, is that regular laser hair removal can affect the reproductive system in a negative way, namely to cause infertility. In fact, the laser cannot penetrate the skin and reach internal organs, so a risk of sterility doesn’t exist. However, it is recommended that women don’t take advantage of the treatment during pregnancy as not enough research has been done to successfully prove how the procedure could influence women in this delicate period of their lives. As of now, clinical studies show that both a single procedure and regular laser hair reduction treatments do not cause any long-term negative reactions or side effects to the body.
