Laser hair removal

Long-term -permanent- laser hair removal is an increasingly popular technique for patients who want to get rid of unwanted hair either permanently or for many years to come.

Laser hair removal is now a safe and effective treatment, provided it is carried out by a professional. It’s important to note that only doctors are legally authorized to use lasers for depilatory purposes. Laser hair removal devices used by non-medical professionals guarantee neither the same safety nor the same depilatory efficacy.

Laser hair removal is ideally suited to light-skinned subjects with brown hair.

How long does laser hair removal take and how efficient is it?

On average, 6 to 8 laser hair removal sessions are needed to achieve good results. Sessions are spaced about two months apart initially, then progressively less frequently over the course of the treatment.

It should be noted that laser hair removal is most effective at the beginning of the treatment. It is not necessary to wait a year to see results. As the treatment progresses, the hair regrows increasingly later, in fewer numbers, and finer.

All areas of the body can be treated. However, laser hair removal is most effective on thicker hair. The finer and lighter the hair, the darker the patient’s skin, and the more sessions are needed to achieve a result.

Laser hair removal treatment is considered complete when 80 to 90% of the hair is destroyed. The remaining hair is scattered and miniaturized.

For men, the quality of response to laser hair removal is variable, and often less good for those with heavy hair growth. Maintenance treatments are often proposed to maintain hairless skin.

The main risk of laser hair removal is skin burn, which can result in a brown spot or, on the contrary, a light spot.

This risk of laser hair removal is prevented by ensuring that the laser is correctly set up (adapted to each patient) by the doctor, and that there is no tanning of the treated area on the day of the session.

As lasers are considered level 4 medical devices, their use is strictly reserved for doctors: ongoing training and expertise in laser treatment (hair removal or other) are crucial to the quality and safety of the treatment provided. Dr. Molinari has been practicing laser hair removal in Paris for over 7 years, using the latest-generation lasers.

Depending on the areas to be treated, laser hair removal sessions can be relatively painful. The use of a pre-prescribed anaesthetic cream is highly effective, making the laser hair removal session much more comfortable.

The duration of laser hair removal sessions varies from a few minutes for underarms to an hour for full legs, or laser hair removal of the back for men, for example.

Doctor MOLINARI in Paris uses the DEKA laser for safe and effective laser hair removal.

Here are the most important things to remember before your session

The area to be waxed must not have been exposed to the sun for at least one month.
You must not have waxed the area to be treated for at least 3 weeks prior to the session.
have stopped all photosensitizing medication at least 5 days before the session
2 or 3 days before the session: shave the area concerned (you can do it the same day if you forgot)
1 to 2 hours before the laser hair removal session: apply anesthetic cream, under occlusion.

And after laser hair removal? 

The area treated by laser hair removal may be red for several days. There is usually no crusting.
Treated hairs take up to 15 days to be eliminated. You can remove them with tweezers or wax.
Sun exposure is possible as soon as all redness has disappeared.
It’s normal to have scattered hairs that grow back immediately after the treatment. They do not need to be touched up.
Wait at least two months between laser hair removal appointments.
