Diode laser hair removal is a useful, painless method of achieving permanent hair removal. This is a scientifically advanced technology that, using the principle of selective photothermolysis that acts on the melanin contained in the follicles, allows it to directly target the hair bulb without damaging the surrounding skin. Diode laser hair removal, with proper indications and modalities allows, potentially, up to 80% elimination of hair in the areas undergoing treatment.
A visit with the Physician who will perform the laser hair removal treatment is always recommended as not all skin and not all hairs are suitable for this type of treatment.
Diode laser hair removal treatment involves a variable number of sessions depending on patient response, usually at least 5 monthly, in order to target the greatest number of hair bulbs at the stage of adequate hair growth.
The sessions, which are monthly, must be done with untanned skin that has not been subjected to sun exposure for at least one month, so sessions are usually scheduled in the winter months from October to May.
After treatment, it is necessary to protect the skin from the sun’s rays (with sunscreen with protection factor 50+) to prevent the appearance of changes in skin pigmentation (usually depigmentation), which, although reversible, require subsequent care for several months.
It is a noninvasive and painless treatment but may cause the sensation of tingling or discomfort at the time of performance especially in the most delicate areas, such as the pubis and face.
After a diode laser hair removal session, abundant home moisturization and total photoprotection for 30 days (with sunscreen with protection factor 50+) is recommended.
The cost of diode laser hair removal sessions varies depending on the area to be treated.
