Alexandrite Laser Hair Removal can also be safely applied to the Neck, as well as to any area of the body where unwanted hair is found.
Laser Alexandrite sessions are repeated approximately every 1-2 months. In hormone-dependent areas such as the face, chest and abdomen, hair reduction is slower compared to Laser Hair Removal on bikini, legs and arms for which a smaller number of sessions are required and even complete hair elimination can be achieved in as little as 6 sessions.
Generally, on the face about 10 sessions are required to eliminate unwanted hair. In the case of a hormonal disorder such as polycystic ovary syndrome or hyperandrogenemia the number of sessions required may be increased.
In cases where hormonal disorders coexist, the only permanent hair removal solution is laser facial hair removal with alexandrite laser.
Adverse effects from Alexandrite laser hair removal only occur when the doctor’s instructions are not followed by the patient or when the procedure is not performed by an experienced operator under the supervision of a dermatologist.
Potential side effects of facial hair removal with laser Alexandrite are completely reversible and include transient erythema and periorbital edema that resolves a few hours after treatment. More persistent irritation may require more time to subside.
Hypochromia or hyperpigmentation may occur if the patient is exposed to the sun immediately after treatment without sun protection.
The operating principle of all lasers is the selective absorption of their light beam by a specific color. Unfortunately, white hairs cannot absorb the laser light and as a result they are resistant to treatment.
In this case we apply a special technique of removing white hair, which is called Punch white hair removal. This technique is applied exclusively at Cosmetic Derma Medicine and has a permanent effect in eliminating white hairs in a few sessions.
