Technique 1: Permanent hair removal with the laser
The laser beams send high-frequency light to the hair roots in a special wavelength. Most often the hair is permanently removed with alexandrite, diode or ruby lasers. The laser energy is converted into heat and the follicle is obliterated. The hair eventually dies. In most cases, the subsequent formation of new hair roots is no longer possible, and hair growth stops. The deserted hair usually falls out after only a few days and then does not grow back.
Advantages: The hair removal is as good as painless, an anesthetic is not required. If used correctly, subsequent skin irritation can be excluded. Therefore, this hair removal treatment is also very suitable for the face.
Disadvantages: This method is not suitable for women with light or gray hair, as the hair does not stand out sufficiently from the adjacent skin areas. A good result can therefore only be achieved on people with dark hair and light skin color. In exceptional cases, the hair can grow back. Caution: Avoid sunbathing for several weeks before treatment. Otherwise pigmentation disorders and burns could occur in the treatment area.
Prices per treatment: Depilation of the armpits with the laser costs around 150 to 180 euros per treatment, the intimate zone around 190 to 230 euros and the legs (upper and lower legs) around 650 to 750 euros.
Number of treatments: In order to ensure lasting success of hair removal without hair regrowth, around four to eight sessions are necessary. There should be a period of about a month between treatments. This is how the best results are achieved
Technique 2: Permanent hair removal with Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)
Compared to the laser treatment for hair removal in delhi, in which the light is emitted with a single wavelength and in high concentration, IPL systems work with a high-energy flash lamp. This means that the complete wave spectrum of the xenon light source is used. In this way, the light can be precisely matched to the absorption properties of the respective hair pigment, melanin. The pulsed light is absorbed by the melanin and passed on to the hair root, which heats up and ultimately becomes deserted. In most cases, the hair does not fall out immediately, but is only shed from the body after about one to two weeks.
Advantages: Just like with conventional laser light, this treatment is as good as painless and no anesthesia is required. However, the IPL method is much faster than laser hair removal, because more hair is destroyed at the same time. Another advantage: the individual settings are more gentle on the skin compared to the laser method.
Disadvantages: Unfortunately, this method is also not suitable for women with light or gray hair. Good results can only be achieved on people with dark hair and light skin color. The attending physician or therapist must individually select the wavelength, energy density, pulse duration and pulse sequence for each patient according to the nature of the skin and hair. You should therefore definitely contact a specialist.
Prices per treatment: Depilation with the Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) of the intimate zone costs around 100 to 150 euros per treatment, the armpits around 80 to 100 euros and the legs (thighs and lower legs) around 350 to 450 euros.
Number of treatments: A total of around six to eight treatments are required for optimal results. The intervals between treatments are usually around eight to twelve weeks.
Technique 3: Permanent hair removal with the Elos technology
Electro-optical epilation is one of the latest technologies in which radio frequency current and optical energy from xenon light (IPL method) with frequencies of 680 to 980 nanometers and simultaneous cooling are used in one step. The emitted light is also absorbed by the melanin and converted into heat. At the same time, a radio frequency current heats the hair roots and the surrounding tissue from the outside. The result: the hair follicle is heated up and wasted more quickly. The simultaneous cooling not only reduces the irritation of the skin, but also enables the light to penetrate deeper into the corresponding skin areas. The stress on the tissue is therefore reduced to a minimum. As with the IPL method, the treated hair does not usually fall out immediately, it is only rejected by the body after a few days. Hair treated with Elos technology no longer grows back.
Advantages: The treatment is also painless so that an anesthetic is not required. In addition, you can gently kill light or gray hair with the Elos technology, as the radio frequency current works independently of the melanin.
Disadvantages: Immediately after the treatment, the skin may be slightly red. Important: The hair should be at least 0.5 millimeters long and clearly visible. Otherwise the light energy cannot work sufficiently. Previous epilation or plucking is therefore taboo.
Prices per treatment: A treatment of the armpits costs around 70 to 100 euros, a depilation of the legs costs around 350 to 450 euros, the intimate zone around 150 to 200 euros.
Number of treatments: On average, around four to eight sessions are necessary at intervals of four to six weeks so that the result is permanent and the hair really stays away.
Technique 4: Permanent hair removal with electro-epilation
With the help of a fine probe made of surgical steel or gold, tailored to the respective hair thickness and follicle depth, a precisely dosed current is fed directly into the corresponding hair follicle. The result: the follicle becomes deserted and new hair can no longer grow back. Electric epilation thus guarantees the most permanent results in hair removal. After the treatment, the hair usually falls out immediately. If you want to speed up the process, you can simply remove the loose hair with tweezers. There are a total of three different types of electro-epilation: Electrolysis: Here direct current is passed into the follicle, which means that the hair papilla forms caustic soda in the body’s own chemical reaction through electrolysis in the surrounding tissue. This destroys the hair root. The hair follicle becomes deserted and can then no longer form new hair.
