What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal technology uses the principle of selective photothermolysis : the production of a light beam, then transformed into heat, will destroy the hair bulb in the hair follicle .

It is essential to understand that the effectiveness of the treatment depends on the growth phase of the hair , called the anagen phase of the hair cycle . This is the reason why several laser hair removal sessions are necessary to obtain optimal results.

On the other hand, hairs that are too light, such as white, blond or red hairs, are not a good indication for laser hair removal. This can be explained by the operation of laser hair removal which targets melanin , present in small quantities in light hair. In this case, we recommend electric hair removal.

What are the target areas for laser hair removal?

At Skin Marceau , our expertise and our innovative technical platform allow us to treat all areas of the face and body . Indeed, it is your dermatologist who determines the laser settings according to each area to be treated and can intervene at any time during your session.

Lip laser hair removal

When the hairs above the upper lip are numerous and dark, the impact on the harmony of the face is often significant. This can be natural or secondary to a certain pathology. Laser down hair removal is a practical and permanent solution.

Arm laser hair removal

lot of hair on the arms is disturbing especially during the summer and can also represent a constraint for athletes . In addition, laser hair removal for the arms also responds to medical situations such as hirsutism or hypertrichosis, and thus helps patients regain their self-confidence.

Underarm laser hair removal

Unsightly, uncomfortable, a source of bad odors and halos on clothes, hair under the arms is effectively eliminated by laser hair removal from the armpits .

Chest laser hair removal

Our male patients are increasingly demanding laser hair removal on the chest . This area, frequently prone to abundant hair , can be a source of aesthetic discomfort but also cause excessive sweating . In addition, professional considerations are also likely to motivate a request for laser hair removal on the chest .

Back laser hair removal

Just like the torso, it is possible that the hair on the back is important and embarrassing. Back laser hair removal offers a practical and permanent solution here.

Bikini laser hair removal

The jersey is one of the areas most frequently affected by laser hair removal, since the hairiness at this level is often significant and causes both aesthetic discomfort and hygiene concerns.

FIS laser hair removal

Laser hair removal of the SIF or inter -gluteal furrow can follow purely aesthetic, hygienic ( sweating and thus irritation) or medical reasons.

Laser hair removal for men, are there any differences with laser hair removal for women?

For our male patients, laser hair removal is most often requested for the back and chest , as well as beard and neck hair removal. The arms, legs and armpits are also frequently treated areas. Laser hair removal for men can be motivated by purely aesthetic reasons or linked to physical activity, such as swimming, for example.

About two months before your session, you must shave the area concerned and this gesture must be repeated two days before each session.

Laser hair removal and skin type: what do you need to know?

Today, all skin phototypes are eligible for laser hair removal. For a long time, dull to dark skin types could not benefit from the advantages of laser hair removal: the differentiation between the pigmentation of the skin and that of the hair was difficult with a risk of burning. The Nd:YAG laser innovation has changed this with wavelengths that penetrate deeper and are thus effective on hair melanin.

For light phototypes, the Alexandrite laser is the reference technology. At Skin Marceau in Paris , we work with the Lutronic Clarity II laser, which allows us to offer laser hair removal for all skin types.

Procedure for laser hair removal sessions at Skin Marceau

During your first consultation, we determine together the most appropriate technique for the particularities of the skin as well as the necessary protocol. We inform you of all the precautions to take before and after your laser hair removal sessions.

Laser hair removal is a medical procedure and we attach great importance to informing our patients.

We are looking for possible contraindications to laser hair removal in order to ensure the safety as well as the effectiveness of the gesture:

  • Laser hair removal cannot be performed on tanned skin . Indeed, the laser beam targets melanin, which is very present in tanned skin. The melanin will absorb all of the laser energy, which can damage the skin and even cause burns . It is absolutely necessary to inform your doctor of any recent sun exposure , he will be able to determine the best course of action.
  • During the month preceding your appointment, it is forbidden to wax the area that will be treated by laser: no depilatory cream, waxing or discoloration.
  • If you are pregnant and/or breastfeeding, laser hair removal is not practical and should be postponed.
  • tattooed area cannot be laser removed because the beam will attack the pigment in the ink, which can cause skin pigmentation and alter your tattoo .
  • skin infection indicates upstream treatment.
  • We invite you to inform your practitioner of any drug treatment you are taking. Indeed, some medications are photosensitizing and can contraindicate laser hair removal. In this case, we recommend that you make an appointment for a free consultation so that we can discuss together the treatment options adapted to your situation.
  • Your medical-surgical history is sought. Certain pathologies affect hair growth : polycystic ovary syndrome ( PCOS ), hirsutism , situations that cause hormonal variations, etc. In this context, a free consultation allows you to have more information on the most appropriate treatment.

What are the consequences of laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is most often described by our patients as being uncomfortable or unpleasant but not painful , particularly when compared to other hair removal methods such as wax or thread.

The consequences of laser hair removal are very simple. It is possible to see some sensitivity or redness appear on the treated areas, but these disappear quickly. No social eviction is necessary.

Since the scale of pain differs from person to person, an anesthetic cream can be applied before the act as well as a soothing cream after your treatment.

The results of laser hair removal

Hairs that are destroyed during their growth phase no longer grow back, their elimination is permanent. As for the rest of the hairs, they are each time fewer and finer when they grow back , until they disappear completely.

The number of sessions required therefore depends on your initial hair growth and your hair cycle, but also on the area treated. For example, laser hair removal of the upper lip requires a large number of sessions: the speed of hair growth at this level

Through the use of laser hair removal, it is possible to reduce a patient’s hairiness by up to almost 90%. However, for this method to be effective, it is important that the hair contains enough melanin and that the hair follicle is connected to the bulb. It is therefore preferable to carry out hair removal during the growth phase of the hair. Since only about 20% of the hair follicles are active simultaneously, several sessions are necessary to treat all the hairs in the same area. Depending on the area to be treated on the face, it is recommended to schedule between 6 and 10 sessions to ensure that each hair follicle has been treated at least once.

The depilated skin is soft and smooth, the time saved is undeniable and the comfort definitive. You no longer need to resort to time-consuming methods.
