Currently the only way to remove unwanted hair for good is laser epilation.
The method involves damage of hair matrix (energy absorption through melanin-colorant).
It needs to be stated, however, that not all hair grows simultaneously. Some of it is at a growth stage – anagen and only this hair reacts to the laser light; other is at the stage of latency – catagen, telogen – hair treated with the laser at these stages does not undergo permanent damage. Due to this fact, the treatments need to be repeated at least four times. In majority of cases, after four treatments there appears a really significant hair reduction, ca.70% of patients need between 4-6 treatments depending on the area of the body, type of hair, genetic predispositions, age etc. After the series of treatments ca.80-93% of body hair is damaged permanently (in case of thin hair), the remaining percentage is lighter, more delicate and invisible hair (in practice 100% hair removal is hard to obtain). In tougher cases, “finishing-off” treatments are needed.
Patients qualified for the treatment undergo a laser trial.
Every skin reacts individually to the treatment. There may appear reddening or slight irritation around follicle; local hyperpigmentation or discolorations, which disappear after a few days, may also appear. In case of exceptional hypersensitivity they may last for a few weeks/months.
