Hair removal

Laser Alexandrite (Αλεξανδρίτης)

The traditional hair removal techniques, such as common shaving, waxing hair removal and the use of hair removal cream, offer only temporary results. Until today, the only satisfactory technique was the use of the needle (electrolysis) which can be painful, time-consuming and costly, while being limited to small surfaces only (e.g. face).

​The formation of scars, the allergic reactions and folliculitis (hair trapped under the skin), are common side effects of the above hair removal techniques.

GenlteLASE and GentleLase Pro-U safely removes the unwanted hair growth without destroying the pores and the structure of the epidermis. It is a new generation medical Laser of Alexandrite type that generates high energy pulses. It emits a mild light beam that penetrates the epidermis and is absorbed by the melanin of the hair follicle, leaving the surrounding skin area unaffected. During the treatment, the epidermis is protected by a Dynamic Cooling Device that cools the epidermis, where cryogen is sprayed on the epidermis, cooling its upper layers. This device protects and provides local anaesthesia, making the therapy effective and painless, while additional local anaesthesia (ice) can be used if this is demanded. The duration of the treatment ranges between 10 minutes and 1 hour depending on the treated area.

Precautions that must be taken before and after the treatment:
  • Avoidance of long exposure to the sun for 2 weeks before the treatment, and after the treatment for as long as it is recommended by your doctor. 
  • In case of history of herpes around the mouth, a prophylaxis treatment may be necessary. 
  • Hair color lightening and waxing hair removal must be avoided for 4 - 6 weeks before the treatment. 
  • In case of dark skin or recent tanning, the proper preparation of the epidermis must be performed for a time period of 2 - 3 weeks before the treatment.
  • The number of treatment sessions that will be necessary depends on the color of the skin, the color and the thickness of the hair. 
  • Discuss with your doctor what results you expect from the treatment and he will advise you about the duration and whether this particular method is the optimal method for your case.
  • The system has the approval for permanent results in hair removal by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) of the USA
