Why Choose Hair Removal from a Professional Laser Hair Removal Machine

Why Choose Hair Removal from a Professional Laser Hair Removal Machine?

Professional laser hair removal machine treatments is one of the world’s most common cosmetic treatments for unwanted hair.

Professional hair Removal Laser machines utilise beams of highly concentrated light which are designed to selectively penetrate into the follicles of hair (absorbed by the pigment in each hair follicle and subsequently destroy the hair that is within that hair follicle). Over the years a number of different light sources and lasers have been created that can be used in professional laser hair removal machines. The treatment was originally developed to be treated on dark hairs on light skin. However certain new technologies have been developed and used to make treatments safer for patients with darker skin tones. An example of technologies include laser hair removal machines (diode laser, SHR technology, alexandrite lasers and Nd:Yag lasers) and IPL Machines (intense pulsed light machines).

Why are people choosing professional laser hair removal?

A professional laser hair removal machine can remove unwanted hair from certain conditions that cause excess hair growth or can offer a new look. In most cases individuals will require a number of treatments which will result in permanent hair reduction of unwanted hair. The leading lasers and light sources are cleared for permanent hair reduction, this means a reduction over time. The results will depend on the individual with some people seeing very long term hair removal which may last for many years. While others can sometimes require maintenance treatments over time to maintain their degree of hair loss. Unfortunately it is not possible to determine in advance of treatments exactly who will require how many treatments and what the result will be in terms of permanent hair reduction. Laser hair removal does work best on customers with dark hairs on lighter skin (well trained clinicians using a proven technology can provide a good framework to customers). Newer technologies from businesses including Spectrum Science & Beauty and Alma Lasers have made the procedure safe and effective in those with darker skin.

How does a customer prepare for a professional laser hair removal treatment?

Before the treatment, a trained therapist or clinician will perform a consultation so that you can make an informed consent. The consultation also gives the therapist an opportunity to identify any contra-indications that may prevent or limit you from having a treatment.

Once the consultation has been performed and you wish to proceed to the next step, a client consultation and consent form must be filled in and signed. The consultation form will require you to fill in information about yourself. This information will allow the therapist to assess suitability for the treatment and identify any issues that may restrict or contra-indicate performing the treatment. The consultation form may include information such as;
– Lifestyle Habits
– Medical History
– Medications

This above is also the time for the therapist or clinician and patient to discuss expectations of the treatment, potential risks and the outcomes of the treatments. Customers receiving laser hair removal should for example avoid the following: tanning beds, sunbathing, chemical peels, waxing, collagen injections for atleast 2 weeks before the treatment. Additionally, avoid deodorants, perfumes, or any potential irritants within the area to be treated before and after the laser hair removal treatment. Avoid aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs and herbal supplements (this list is not exhaustive and there will be other contra-indications that need to be avoided).

What can a customer expect after hair removal

An example of what customers may experience following the treatment:

– Swelling and redness of the hair follicle, which is a normal occurrence.
– Can experience discomfort.
– Should avoid direct sun exposure for at least one week following all laser hair removal treatments.

Super Hair Removal (SHR): Laser Hair Removal Machine

Super Hair Removal (SHR) is a technology invented by Alma Lasers and is their proprietary laser hair removal machine technology that is now been used in clinics all around the world and has global brand recognition.


What is SHR and How does it Work?

SHR is becoming a very common term when people speak about hair removal technology. So how exactly does this technology work? SHR gradually heats the dermis to a temperature that is able to effectively damage hair follicles and also prevent re-growth of the hair follicles, while very importantly avoiding injury to the surrounding tissue. With Super Hair Removal the hair follicles do not get exposed to one single pulse of high energy because using a single pulse of high energy can have the risk of injuring the skin.  Instead the follicle receives multiple, short, and low energy pulses accumulating enough energy to damage the hair follicle. With the equipment supplied from Spectrum parameters are provided to ensure the correct accumulated energy resulting in the most effective results.

Using a high repetition rate short pulses are delivered deep into the dermis, and achieve high average power which results in therapeutically effective build-up of heat, and best of all virtually no pain for the patient.

An In-Motion method is used with SHR by moving the handpiece multiple times over the area being treated to ensure full coverage of the treated area. Grid templates are used to ensure the most effective results. Glacial Tech cooling is used via a sapphire tip preventing superficial burns and facilitating virtually painless but very effective hair removal.
