DIODE lasers' technology
Thanks to the latest technology in high power DIODE laser hair removal, laser machines such as the Lightsheer Duet or the Omnia Lumen, allow you to get your hair removed with maximum safety all year round.
Until now there was not a sufficiently safe technology to treat the sun exposed skin. Thanks to the newest equipment this is now possible as the laser is applied in a concentrated, precise and localised way on the hair and not on the skin.
Although it is possible to perform DIODE laser hair removal in summer, you should always follow our therapists’ recommendations and advices in case of sun exposure.
To get started we provide a free consultation where we can talk though all the questions that you might have. A skin sensitivity test will be carried to determine the treatment suitability and gauge the right setting to ensure maximum results.
The DIODE laser emits near infra-red light that is consumed by the skin pigment based in the hair follicle. The laser is pulsed for less than a second, enough for it to simply damage the follicle and prevent the hair from growing back. During this process, many follicles can be treated simultaneously – as a result the treatment is much faster compared to traditional lasers. After the session a restorative cream is applied to soothe and moisturise the skin. It is common to notice a slight redness or swelling of the treated areas. It is a sign that the treatment has been effective. These effects will disappear in about 72 hours.
Some darker or tanned skins may experience small blisters that will disappear in a few weeks. The frequency between sessions will depend on the treatment recommendation the desired end result. The sessions last between 20 and 40 minutes on average and allow immediate return to the day to day life without any significant discomfort.
Before the treatment:
- Deeply hydrate the skin, minimum three days, with Centros Unico’s post-laser cream.
- We do not recommend immediate treatment in case of sun exposure or UVA rays. Minimum 2 weeks wait and patch test is required after sun exposure.
- Do not wax or thread the areas to be treated one month before treatment. You can shave the body area, except the face. The latter will be shaved by the laser operator on the same day of your treatment.
- Do not apply self-tanning products the week before treatment, nor discolor the hair to be removed at least 15 days before your appointment.
- Have clean skin and wear no make-up the day of your treatment.
- Do not use cosmetics containing glycolic or retinoic acid three days prior to treatment, nor apply deodorant before or after the session.
- If the skin has melasma or a tendency to hyperpigmentation, use a local depigmenting agent during the two weeks before the treatment.
- If you suffer recurrent cold sores (more than once a month), warn your therapist to start the preventive treatment the day before the session.
After the treatment:
- Use protective cream to keep the skin hydrated.
- Avoid inflammation of the treated areas by avoiding application of other cosmetic products that contain alcohol.
