Is permanent hair removal really permanent?
Excessive or disturbing hair growth frequently impairs the quality of life of the women and men affected and can often even cause psychological stress.
Permanent hair removal – as it is usually touted by many clinics or companies, sounds tempting and the fact that no more hair will grow in the lasered areas for the rest of your life sounds too good to be true. In fact, laser beams heat the hair follicles and do stop new hairs from growing! This process puts the hair follicles in a state of dormancy for a long period of time, but not 100% completely… Affected roots in some areas can regrow though but they will be significantly weakened, new hair will be lighter, finer and fewer in number. A correctly performed laser treatment by a certified specialist will maximally reduce unwanted hair growth for a very long period of time.
Which parts of the body can be treated in Dubai?
Modern lasers with light-based systems safely remove unwanted hair from the body and face with consistent results. Laser systems and flash bulbs (Intense Pulsed Light, IPL) can permanently solve the problem of hair on the face (except eye area), bikini, legs, back and shoulders, arms, back or armpits.
The luxury that provides us with a variety of options for permanent hair removal today sometimes creates a few uncertainties.
In this article we would like to briefly discuss laser and IPL technology for permanent hair removal and answer some unresolved questions.
What does IPL stand for?
IPL stands for "Intense pulsed light" and is a type of light therapy that is used for various dermatological indications, such as the removal of pigment disorders, spider veins or couperose, but also for hair removal.
There are big differences in quality between IPL devices, in particular there is a differentiation between medical and cosmetic systems. IPL may be offered by doctors, but also in beauty salons or cosmetic studios by beauticians.
What does laser mean?
Laser – Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation
A laser works selectively in a specific wavelength, whereas IPL technology has wavelengths of approximately 500-1200 nm, which results in a lower temperature at the hair root due to scattering in several planes.
The difference between the two lies in the concentrated light impulse of the laser, which affects the hair roots in a targeted manner and thus permanently damages the hair root. The laser always uses higher temperatures with almost complete freedom from pain and achieves optimal results through a higher degree of intensity.
IPL technology operates with a broad wavelength spectrum and consequently does not reach the penetration depth of a laser. As a result, a lower temperature is achieved at the target structure of the hair root, which is important for effective hair removal.
The Laser is the Gold standard!
Our laser technology is the most comprehensive and effective solution for laser hair removal. The treatments are gentle, virtually painless and proven to be safe.
Are laser treatments painful?
The light impulses penetrate the hair root with high intensity through the pigment contained in the hair and cause the nutrient cells of the hair root to be destroyed by thermal reaction. An integrated cooling system enables this kind of gentle hair removal and makes the treatment almost painless.
Can all skin and hair types be treated?
Darker hair responds particularly well to the treatment, as it contains a higher amount of the pigment melanin, but new laser systems can remove even very light hairs easily. All skin types can be treated.
In case of very light hair and very dark skin, we recommend a trial treatment to test the effectiveness and efficiency of the procedures as well as the reactions of skin and hair.
How many treatments are necessary?
Usually 4-8 treatments are sufficient. Only that hair that is growing can be properly treated. The remaining hair roots are located under the skin in a resting state and can therefore only be removed permanently in subsequent treatments.
An exact number of treatments required for permanent hair removal cannot be predicted in advance, as everyone has different treatment requirements.
How much Laser Hair Removal in Dubai Cost?
Small regions cost around AED 300.- and larger regions up to AED 1000.- Exact costs for your permanent hair removal can be found in a free consultation at Eden Derma Clinic Dubai. Enjoy the Promotions and Special Offers
How long does treatment for hair removal take?
The duration of the treatment depends on the size of the area. The duration of treatment can vary from 15 minutes to 2 hours, depending on the area of skin.
Permanent Hair Removal in Summary
The laser treatment causes the light energy to be absorbed by the melanin contained in the hair and quickly converted into heat. This heat development destroys growing cells and stops the blood supply to the hair root. As a result, the treated hair, which is currently in the active growth phase, falls out.
