Laser Hair Removal
What is Laser?
Laser stands for “Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation“ and has been gaining popularity since it’s invention in 1960. Today it is used in different branches of science and technology as well as in medicine. Goldman was the first to use it for dermatological purposes in 1963.
Laser is a light source that emits a narrow beam of a defined wavelength. Its uniform waves propagate with little divergence, i.e. they are almost parallel. There are different kinds of lasers depending on wavelength (from ultraviolet to infrared) and laser powers (from a few fractions of a milliwatt for use in diagnostics to the kilowatt range of high-power lasers for use in industry). In the case of continuous emission we refer to the laser as continuous-wave laser (cw)
In the case of single pulse excitation it is called a pulser laser. It’s Q switch laser when excitation energy is collected and then followed by a sudden release.
Why Laser Hair Removal?
Q: How often do I need to have Laser Hair Removal treatments?
A: To achieve the best result it’s recommended to schedule an appointment every 6-8 weeks.
After 6-8 such procedures most of our clients usually need a touch up package with 8-12 week intervals until all hair is removed.
Q: How many procedures will I need to have my unwanted body hair removed for good?
A: It usually takes 6 to 8 sessions to lose 60-90% of unwanted body hair. If we are working on large areas with more unruly hair, more procedures may be required.
Q: What are chances of my hair growing back?
A: We guarantee that there are no such chances and we have hundreds of successful cases to refer to. As stated on our website, Eureka offers permanent hair removal. The way the procedure works is to damage hair follicles and make re growth impossible. However hormonal changes may trigger growth of new hair especially on chin and facial area. It is also possible that a few hair follicles partially escaped the laser beam during the procedures. Both of these cases can be resolved with additional sessions.
Q: Do you offer late evening appointments?
A: Yes, we offer late evening hours as well as weekend appointments. MeDioStar laser, the laser hair removal technology we use works up to 10 times faster than other laser hair removal machines currently available. It is also compatible with different size headpieces allowing us to treat larger areas faster. Getting rid of unwanted hair on your back will take no longer than 5 minutes! You can do it on your lunch break! Our laser hair removal procedure is painless and needs no recovery time!
Q: How painful are the procedures?
A: Thanks to advanced the MeDioSTAR Laser and it’s chilled tip, the pain is reduced to a minimum. Laser hair removal feels like a warm heat sensation on the skin. However if your pain tolerance is low, Lidocaine 5 mg topical ointment will help the case.
Q: Is there anything I should do in preparation for my laser hair removal session?
A: Our specialists advise exfoliating and/or shaving the procedure designated areas one night prior to the appointment. Waxing should be done at least two weeks before your appointment at Eureka.
