You will find lots (and I mean lots) of at home IPL hair removal kits which personally I wasn’t interested in. In terms of lasers and intense skincare treatments I am one of those people who prefers to acquire a specialist to work their magic on me, instead of trying to become one by obtaining a kit from my local pharmacy. I went to a clinic in my hometown which had recently opened for some treatments.
I went along to about 2 sessions, but didn’t see any results – In Any Way. So, it had been fair to express I wasn’t going to waste any more money. Strike one. FYI – I know individuals who have had treatments of IPL done (mainly all Asian/Indian skin types) and I have already been told it requires lots of sessions to view results. I have been told by my current laser technician (and head trainer & educator of Polaris Hair Laser Removal) that IPL does not focus on Indian skin and has temporary benefits. It basically isn’t the most effective laser for very long term hair-free fuss.
Next time round, I decided to go for a YAG laser but to my luck, my technician had blagged her distance to making me think she was doing us a favour. If in reality, her so called YAG laser was even more of 永久脫毛 then other things. I notice you it made my hair a bit fainter, but nothing drastic – and i also had at the very least 6 sessions. Yet again, I wasted not just my amount of time in travel but a lot of cash! Strike two.
Within the last 5 months roughly I have been going to a lovely laser technician, who lucky for me personally, is based in the same county as me! I needed told her each of the problems We have had in the past with hair laser removal and she provided her honest and professional advice. She explained for me that IPL isn’t extremely effective (especially on Asian skin) for hair removal. It works whilst you will get it done but give it per year roughly and you will definitely visit your the growth of hair coming back again. The penetration from the laser isn’t as deep and doesn’t target the hair follicle towards the extent as a YAG laser does.
I then explained the so-called YAG laser treatment I used to be getting before visiting her. That is certainly when she did a bit digging (in their free time) and informed me that I was missold my laser treatment. The laser which I was getting done was more similar to IPL than a proper YAG laser. It had been even more of a diode – basically which means I wasn’t getting the hemyhh results has I would personally have having a proper or do i need to say real YAG laser!
She then told me about her laser. The laser she uses is the Long Pulsed Nd: YAG Laser by Polaris Medical. She is a professional educator/trainer for this laser and has been around the business for twenty years – she basically knows her shiz.
This laser can be used as hair elimination of hair on all skin types, light to dark. One of the main features of this laser is the fact its melanin absorption is quite low. Melanin is exactly what gives the skin it’s colour. The greater melanin you have, the darker the skin and the other way around. Because of it’s low absorption of this, there is very little risk of the epidermis to have damaged by hyper/hypo pigmentation. Which means that the long pulsed Nd:Yag lasers is idea for for hair removal on medium to dark skin!
I have to go with clean, lotion/potion free, make-up free, perfume/deoderant free and hair free. Yep, therefore you need to shave in advance (everywhere you need to target!). This can be and so the laser can arrive at the folicle without the hair strands getting in the manner.
I have learnt the hard way by accidentally having some perfume in my neck and the laser burning my skin – luckily it wasn’t that bad (my Elizabeth Adren Eight Hour Cream sorted me out!). However, this can be common and will happen.
During Laser Treatment
During the laser session, the part/s of your body are sectioned off (as you can tell inside the picture above). The Long Puled Nd: YAG laser is used with the air-conditioning type cooling tube which is hovered on the area of the epidermis because it is getting lasered – this really is so that you don’t feel the heat. The sensation of getting this done is similar to someone poking you having a needle. Based on your pain threshold and/or the location you might not feel it in any way.
