Frequently Asked Questions

For whom?

For optimal results, the hair must be dark : brown or black. It is not possible to remove blond, red, white or gray hair with the laser.

However, the diode laser treats all skin types : light and dark skin types.

The treatment is suitable for almost anyone. Although, some situations can require specific precautions or can make a treatment impossible. These situations are discussed at the first appointment.

Which areas?

The usual areas of the body are the legs, the bikini line and the armpits. Other body parts covered with dark and coarse hair can also be treated, such as the arms, the back, the chest, the stomach etc.

Regarding the face, the usual areas are the upper lip and chin.

Is it painful?

The pain felt during diode laser hair removal is comparable to the sensation of a rubber band snapping on the skin. The feeling is uncomfortable rather than really painful. Also, the degree of the discomfort depends on the sensitivity and hairiness of the treated area and on the pain tolerance of the treated person. Fortunately, the intensity of the diode laser can be adjusted if the pain is not bearable.

Is it dangerous?

A laser hair removal treatment requires precise settings of the laser to avoid the risk of burns or pigmentation disorders. These settings are based on measurements taken before each treatment session. In case of doubt, a test session can be performed on a small area to observe the reaction of the skin. It is also essential to respect the contraindications for laser hair removal treatment.

What is the duration of treatment?

Several sessions are necessary to remove the almost totality of the unwanted hair. The number of sessions varies depending on the treated area and the characteristics of the treated person. Usually, it takes approximately 6 to 12 sessions with an interval of 4 to 8 weeks between each session. Nevertheless, almost 50% of the hair will already be permanently eliminated after 3 to 4 sessions, while the rest of the hair will gradually disappear during the following sessions.
