AW Beautician - Beauty treatments - Laser diode hair removal


 

 

Laser hair removal is the fastest growing procedure in cosmetic dermatology. Most commonly women choose to remove unwanted hair from their chins, upper lip moustache, face, bikini line, underarm or legs, and men most commonly choose to remove hair from their chest and back areas.

The VERSUS advanced laser system is replacing unpleasant, time-consuming hair removal methods like waxing, electrolysis, or IPL by gently removing hair without causing irritation and minimising the chance of scarring and pigmentation changes.

The VERSUS Laser quickly and effectively treats multiple hair follicles at once with no down time, enabling patients to resume their activities immediately after treatment. Best of all, this non-invasive, effective approach yields permanent hair reduction and long-term hair removal.

 


HOW SAFE IS IT?
The VERSUS  Laser parameters are specifically designed to match your skin and hair type, assuring exceptionally precise and gentle treatments. Immediately after treatment, the area may appear and feel mildly sunburned, a reaction that will subside within 24 to 48 hours.

DOES IT HURT?
While pain tolerance is an individual matter, most people tolerate laser treatment well. Versus is the latest diode laser for hair removal from the cooling system, which makes the procedure is completely painless and safe for the skin. It consists in the issuance of mild beam, absorbed by the cells of the hair dye. This leads then to produce a very high temperature, which leads to protein denaturation and effective destruction of the follicle after a few treatments. In particular the VERSUS -Cool up treatment enables the Versus to be customised to the clients tolerance ensuring advantages that other treatments cannot provide.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
While the Versus Laser is able to cover relatively large areas at high speed, the exact time is determined by the size of the area being treated. The upper lip and underarms may only take 15 minutes however legs and larger areas may take up to half an hour. Full consultations and skin patch tests are given prior to any laser hair treatment.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
Women  and men of all skin colours and most hair colours have been successfully treated. For best results, laser hair removal treatments are customised according to skin colour, hair texture and body site.

HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE NECESSARY?

All hair follicles go through periods of dormancy and growth. As laser light only affects hair follicles that are actively producing hair at the time of treatment, resting follicles must enter the growth phase before they can effectively be treated. For this reason, treatment must be repeated until all hair follicles have passed through the growing phase. 

The great advantage is a large area of the crystal 12 x 12 mm so that the operations are simple and quick to perform. Lightweight and compact head operator makes the work easier. Cooled head and infinitely adjustable pulse frequency of intense feelings boil any customer to a minimum.  Depending on the area on which we operate and the type of hair we select the appropriate parameters. The recommended number of treatments in the sesions is 3 to 6 meetings regularly every 4-5 weeks. 

Even after the first treatment the client see a big difference !!!


 

WHY USE LASER AND NOT IPL?
Laser hair removal is more effective than Intense Pulsed Light system (IPL) which uses less powerful, diffused light waves. Laser hair removal is safe than IPL due to its narrower ligt spectrum and can be used on any part of the body. Individual treatment times are faster and more convenient than IPL.

IPL treatment courses will take at least 3 times longer to complete and are therefore generally more expense overall than laser. IPL treatments wont achieve the same level of permanent hair reduction and could cause skin pigmentation.

 

WHO CAN HAVE LASER HAIR REMOVAL?

Laser hair removal can be used on any part of the body, popular areas we treat include the face, bikini, legs, underarms and backs for men, but other areas are shown in the diagram.

Patients with pale skin and dark hair achieve the fastest results since the contrast between their skin and hair colour enables the laser treatment to operate at its most efficient. However, our laser is one of the few that can treat mediterranean and asian skin types.
As the laser targets hair with pigmentation, it is not effective on white or grey hair which needs to be resolved withelectrolysis hair removal.
