LASER ALEXANDRITE

Trust Skourasmed for your permanent depilation with the help of new generation Alexandrite laser.

WHAT IS IT?

Depilation Laser is a light source that emits light which targets the skin pigment melanin. It is a machine for the destruction of hair follicles and it leads to the gradual reduction of undesired hair growth. There are many kinds of depilation Lasers (Nd Yang, Diode etc.), but after many studies, Laser alexandrite (755 nm) was proven as the more effective.

IS IT DANGEROUS?

In every treatment a specific safety protocol must be kept and special protective glasses must be used. It must be applied by a trained user in a suitably designed environment.

DOES IT HAVE SIDE EFFECTS?

Wrong use of the machine may lead to blindness, and also to burns, ranging from mild to extensive, depending on the damage. But if it is applied by suitably trained medical staff, then Laser is the most suitable depilation method.

WHERE IS IT APPLIED?

It is applied to all areas of the body with unwanted hair growth, as it only acts on the skin level and never affects lymph nodes, breasts, ovaries or other organs. Thanks to its so selective action it may even be used during pregnancy.

DURATION OF SESSION

The application duration depends on the application area and does not exceed two hours, if it is applied to the whole body.

FREQUENCY OF SESSIONS

Sessions must take place as soon as there is hair re-growth and not before 35-40 days. This interval gradually increases and we reach the maintenance process with an application 1-2 times per year.

INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE AND AFTER APPLICATION
  • No other depilation method affecting hair follicles (tweezers, wax etc.) must be used for at least 20 days
  • The area for treatment must not have hair growth > 1 mm, except for the face area.
  • Sun-protection is recommended before and after, as well as the use of special creams.
  • Before each application you must inform about any conditions you have and about any medication you are taking.

PHOTOLYSIS - IPL

Depilation with pulsed light is a method of permanent and painless depilation during which pulsed light is transmitted to the hair. The light is absorbed selectively by the hair melanin and is transferred to its follicle which it destroys, without putting the skin in danger.

Each session is brief and painless. The treatment is applied on any part of the body and 7-9 sessions are usually required to complete the treatment and be permanently free from unwanted hair.

OTHER DEPILATION METHODS

ENZYME DEPILATION

Introduction of enzymes after depilation to the area presenting hair-growth. The enzymes have keratolytic properties which destroy hair regenerative cells, slowing down and gradually eliminating re-growth.

ELECTRICAL (RADICAL) DEPILATION

Destruction of hair-growth by injecting electrical current through a special sterilized needle which is inserted the follicle of each hair. The method is indicated for small areas (face, chest) and it offers permanent hair elimination.
