Simplify Your Morning Routine with Laser Hair Removal
Say goodbye to sharp razors, harmful creams, and painful wax and say yes to laser hair removal.
It’s one of the most commonly performed cosmetic procedures in the world, for good reason. Laser Hair Removal is fast, effective and each session brings you closer to permanent hair reduction. At Lutétia Clinic we use an advanced laser that targets more types of hair and is effective on more skin types than the common laser.
And to improve the experience for our patients, the laser’s built-in cooling system makes the treatment more comfortable and is less messy than a session requiring numbing cream.
How does laser hair removal work?
Understanding how lasers remove hair can help patients understand why the strength of the laser and the expertise of the practitioner are important when choosing a clinic to remove unwanted hair. Dark objects absorb light and light objects reflect light. So it’s the dark objects that heat up when targeted by a laser beam. When it comes to hair, it’s the melanin, the substance that gives hair its color, that heats up under the laser. You want the hair to heat up a lot faster than the skin, so the hair is destroyed but the skin is unaffected. That’s why you might hear that dark hair on light skin is the easiest for the laser to remove.
If the hair doesn’t get hot enough, the warmth from the laser can stimulate the hair to grow even more. Which, let’s face it, is the exact opposite of what you wanted. Weak lasers can make hair grow even more. If the practitioner doesn’t get the laser on the right setting, based on your hair and skin type, you might not get the result you want.
The laser we use is an advanced Alexandrite and Nd:Yag machine that can treat both dark and light hair, heating the melanin enough to destroy the follicle.
