Laser treatment for hair removal: how does the procedure work?

Laserbehandlung Haarentfernung

Many women and men like to have a beautiful, dense hair growth on their head but would rather do without hair on other parts of their body. There are many ways to get rid of those pesky hairs. The first is shaving, but as soon as the hair is cut, it grows back – and within a few days the stubble is back, for example on the legs or in the armpits. More permanent are waxing, sugaring or epilation. With these methods, hair is completely pulled out of the skin, root and all. The effect lasts for about two to three weeks. However, there are also disadvantages: The application is painful and must be repeated every few weeks to keep the skin smooth. For those who want permanently hair-free skin, laser treatment for hair removal is suitable. In our practice in Munich, we offer treatment with the 3-wave diode laser.

How the laser treatment for hair removal works

With the laser we can remove unwanted body hair painlessly, cleanly and, above all, permanently. To do this we use – in simple terms – a special light that strongly heats the hair roots. The pigment melanin contained in the hair absorbs the laser energy. As a result, the treated hair roots become desolate and can no longer form new hairs. At the same time, hairs that are currently in the growth phase also react to the treatment. They also fall out.

Laser treatment for hair removal: in our practice in Munich we use the diode laser

Currently, the most modern, effective and safest method for permanent hair removal is treatment with the 3-wave diode laser. This technology is very innovative as it combines the three most effective laser wavelengths needed for hair removal.

This allows us to simultaneously treat all areas of the hair root at different depths of the skin. The great advantage is that we can successfully treat lighter or thinner hairs with the diode laser. With conventional laser hair removal, these hairs often cannot be reached.

In addition, the treatments are painless and without side effects. Diode laser hair removal is much more pleasant than treatments with conventional systems. In addition, we can better protect your skin.
