How does laser hair removal take place?
Hair grows in three cycles. First, the active or growth cycle (Anagen) next, the dormant cycle (Catagen) and finally, the fall-out or shedding cycle (Telogen). Laser hair removal is most effective during the growth cycle (Anagen). The laser light is being absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicle and converts the light to heat. The heat damages the follicle and destroys its ability to re-grow without damaging delicate pores or structures of the skin.
Why do I need several sessions?
Because the laser affects hair follicles only when they are in the growth phase, more than one treatment may be necessary to disable hair follicles that subsequently enter the growth phase. During your consultation, you will be advised as to the approximate number of treatments.
Which are the areas that can be treated?
Facial areas (upper lip, chin, cheeks…), neck, armpits, bikini line. Large body areas such as full back, full chest, shoulders, full legs, arms…

LASER FOR TATOO REMOVAL
Laser technology provides the means for your tattoo to be removed safely and quickly and in most cases, without leaving a scar. No matter the size, color, location or age of the tattoo, our lasers get the ink out without damaging the skin.
How does the treatment work?
Medical lasers designed to eradicate tattoos range from a single wavelength of light to a broad spectrum of light, the varieties of which are intended to eradicate the ink in the tattoo without damaging the skin. Certain colors of light are absorbed by specific corresponding colors of the tattoo ink. The light energy vaporizes or fragments the ink particles which are gradually removed by the body’s natural filtering systems. The color fades over the next couple of weeks.
How many treatments are required?
Size, color, ink composition, location and the age of the tattoo determine the number of treatments necessary to effectively complete removal. On an average, professional tattoos require 6-8 treatments. Treatments are spaced approximately four to eight weeks apart.
How is the treatment like?
It is less painful to have a tattoo removed than getting it put on. An anesthetic cream should be applied an hour before the procedure. After the procedure the treated area may blister, swell, crust or scab. You will need to care for the area daily in order to prevent infection and get the best possible healing results. Your tattoo will then gradually fade for 4-8 weeks when we can again treat the area with our lasers.
Is it painful?
In addition to the anesthetic cream, we use an advanced cooling device that numbs your skin, reduces swelling, enhances healing and improves safety. Our patients love this new technology as it makes all the difference.

The results and appearance of the tattoo vary from patient to patient. After each treatment sessions you will see the tattoo become lighter until it fades away completely. Due to the various levels of professionalism and types of inks used in tattooing the results and the number of treatments may vary. Typically, multiple treatments will be required and are scheduled 4 to 8 weeks apart.
