Laser Hair Removal

Laser Hair Removal

Laser epilation can be applied to all hairs on the body, except eyelashes. The laser beams we use in epilation are not rays that go beyond the skin; even in the skin, they are the rays that only recognize the hair root. Therefore, they do not harm other elements of the skin. The number of sessions varies between 6 and 9 depending on skin phototype, body region, hormonal balance and hair color. If women have increased hair growth around the sideburns, mustache, chin, neck, nipple, middle of the chest and belly, our Dermatology Specialist Doctor evaluates the necessary hormonal analyzes before laser epilation and starts the necessary treatments. This approach prevents the prolongation of laser sessions and accelerates the removal of unwanted hair.

How does laser hair removal work?

Human skin is permeable to light. The hair, on the other hand, does not transmit light, because the abundant black melanin substance in it absorbs light.
In the laser epilation process, the laser light is highly concentrated in the hair root and turns into heat energy. There is permanent damage to the heated hair follicle and the cells that produce the hair, and this leads to the loss of the hair-producing function of the hair follicle. Thus, at the end of successive sessions, the hairs are destroyed for a long time. However, since other parts of the skin are permeable to light, no side effects are observed since heat is not concentrated in these areas.
