In the field of laser in aesthetic medicine, there are a wide variety of equipment and technology. If we have to highlight two technologies for hair removal we diode laser (Light Sheer and others) and the Alexandrite laser. The latter provides a number of advantages over its competitors.
There are various studies that compare the effectiveness of both laser methods, but there is no definitive consensus on what is the ideal system.
This type of laser can be used either in light or dark hair and is more tolerant than the Light Sheer Diode which is more painful.
The Alexandrite laser incorporating a refrigeration system that serves to numb the skin during the treatment and make it less annoying. This is one of the best advantages, since it is not necessary to use anesthetic creams of any kind.
The sensation produced during each laser pulse is similar to that of a mild sting. Throughout the treatment will be applied a moisturizer or Aloe vera to restore harmony with the skin. This does not produce any additional irritation.
As with all lasers, it is essential to take precautions, such as the prevention of Sun during the 4 weeks after completion of treatment and if it cannot be avoided, should be applied a sunscreen with high content.
It is also advisable to avoid waxing systems as wax or blade of a month before the next session.
At Clínica Luso Espanhola we have both depilatory laser systems so we can adapt to all types of skin.
