The laser beams hit the skin surface and are absorbed by the melanin. Which is increasingly contained in the hair and passes the light impulses to the hair root. There the light energy is converted into warmth and destroys the hair follicle. Therefore new hair cannot be regenerated.
The laser hand piece is moved over the body area and emits targeted laser impulses. The patient feels a slight tingling which is completely normal. Slight redness after the treatment is normal and is no cause for concern. The redness usually disappears after 2-3 days.
Intensive sun exposure and preparation for the treatment
Since the dye melanin reacts to the laser energy, it is recommended to avoid intense sunlight, so that there is as little as possible melanin in the skin. Thererfore, it is advised to avoid going to the solarium and reduce sunbathing to a minimum before the treatment.
The skin should be shaved on the day before the treatment, to give the skin optimal preparation.
