Laser hair removal is a technique that aims permanent removal of unwanted hair in a chosen area. Thereby, it is no longer necessary to shave or wax your unwanted hair on a recurrent basis and you can enjoy a smooth skin at any time.

At the clinic, permanent hair removal is performed using a diode laser. This technique uses a light beam that can destroy your unwanted hair without damaging the surrounding tissues. This principle is called selective photo-thermolysis and makes it possible to treat all skin types, even dark skin types!

Frequently asked questions

For whom ?

Diode laser hair removal treats all skin types: light and dark. However, the hair that you want to remove must have a dark color. In fact, diode laser cannot remove blond, red, white or gray hair.

Almost anyone can undergo permanent hair removal with a diode laser, except in presence of a contraindication listed below.

Contraindications ?

Some situations do not allow laser treatment, while other situations require specific measures before and during laser treatment. These situations are listed below in a non-exhaustive list.

Skin conditions :

  • Lesion, inflammation or infection of the skin in the treated area
  • Tattoo or permanent makeup in the treated area
  • Excessively tanned skin, recent tanning or sun exposure, use of self-tanning products
  • Many moles in the treated area

  • Use of “photosensitizing” ointments
  • Use of anti-coagulants

Medical conditions :

  • Pregnancy
  • Diabetes
  • Epilepsy
  • Autoimmune disease

  • Cancer

Which areas ?

The usual areas are the legs, bikini line and armpits. Other body areas that present dark and coarse hair can also be treated, such as the chest, the back, the arms etc.

In 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. It is rather uncomfortable than really painful. The degree of pain sensation depends on the sensitivity and hairiness of the treated area and also on the pain tolerance of a person. Fortunately, the intensity of the diode laser can be adapted if the pain is not bearable.

Is it dangerous ?

Laser hair removal requires precise settings to avoid burns or alteration of skin pigmentation. These settings are based on measurements that are made before each hair removal session. In case of doubt, a test session is performed on a small area to observe the reaction of the skin. It is also essential to respect the contraindications to treatment.

What is the duration of treatment ?

It takes several sessions to remove the almost totality of unwanted hair. The number of sessions varies according to the chosen area and the characteristics of each person. It takes approximately 5 to 10 sessions with an interval of 4 to 6 weeks between each session. Nevertheless, almost 50% of the hair will already be permanently eliminated after 3 sessions while the rest of the hair will be gradually eliminated during the following sessions.

    • It is hardly recommended to avoid sun exposure of the skin that is treated with laser (including sunbed in a solarium) and to avoid self-tanning products during the complete laser treatment, especially 2 weeks before and after a session
