Some Often Asked Questions:
Why do you use the Alexandrite Laser for hair removal at the DentalSPA in Dubai?
It is one of the most advanced laser hair removal methods available. Not all laser hair removal machines are created equal, therefore we are delighted to announce that we have one of the most innovative systems. The future-forward technology of the Alexandrite Laser ensures that treatment is more comfortable and longer-term effective than with other hair removal systems and lasers.
How does a laser work?
Lasers emit a precise light that passes through the skin and is absorbed into heat at the hair follicle. The laser treatment process is based on a simple principle which is to disable the hair follicles beneath the skin surface to stop the hair from growing.
How many treatments will I need?
This can only accurately be assessed during a consultation, but it is usually essential to have around 4 to 6 treatment sessions. Why? The hair has a cycle of growing phase, resting phase and transitional phase. In order for a treatment to have the maximum effect, the laser has to work on the actively growing hair. At any one time, however, only a proportion of the hair is at the growing phase and this is the reason why several treatments are required to obtain maximum results.
How is treatment administered?
After a consultation with our laser hair removal expert she will be able to determine the amount of treatments you should require. Our laser hair removal expert holds the smooth laser device over the skin and treatment will commence. The head of the Alexandrite Laser remains cool to the touch and smooth throughout the treatment. Patients always comment about how pain-free, smooth-feeling and surprisingly pleasant the treatment is.
Is laser hair removal treatment safe?
Laser hair removal is a non-invasive procedure which is perfectly safe. The settings used are individually chosen for your skin type and hair colour to minimise the risk of any skin reaction.
