Laser hair removal

Hair growth in a place where you would rather not see it. Unwanted hair growth can be very annoying. At Faithfull Skinclinic we tackle unwanted hair growth through laser hair removal with the Gentle Max Pro plus. The device combines two types of lasers: the Alexandrite laser for lighter skin and the ND:YAG laser for darker skin. This makes it possible to adjust the laser to your skin type for the best result.

The treatment

During the treatment, the laser is placed on your skin and with a short flash, the Gentle Max Pro Plus destroys the hairs that are in the active growth phase. The light is converted into heat there, heating the hair and destroying the hair follicle. As only the pigment in the hair is heated, the surrounding tissue remains neatly intact

 

A no-obligation intake interview takes place before the treatment, during which a treatment plan is drawn up to treat the unwanted hair growth. The skin may not have been tanned before the treatment and should therefore not have been exposed to sunlight unprotected (SPF30) for 4 weeks. A trial treatment will also take place during the intake to rule out complications.

How many treatments do I need?

On average, unwanted hair growth requires 6 to 8 treatments to achieve the desired result. In the case of black and brown hair, about 70% to 90% of the hair follicles are destroyed and the very last hairs are often thin and miniscule. The period between treatments is six to eight weeks. To maintain the result after the treatment process, we recommend scheduling 1 to 2 separate maintenance treatments per year. During the intake interview, the skin therapist will tell you more about this.
