More benefits like better skin condition and lower chance of infections and ingrown hair, because you stop irritating your skin with a blade, depilatory wax or epilator, maxes this procedure a worthy option to consider.
Laser hair removal method with a German ASCLEPION diode laser MeDioStar NeXT is recognized in the world as a golden standard and is a real piece of modern technology guaranteeing quick, painless and safe treatment.
About the procedure
Laser hair removal with a powerful diode laser MeDioStar NeXT is a treatment when laser generating a specific wavelength of radiation irreversibly destroys the hair follicle. During the procedure, the energy of laser must penetrate a few millimeters into the skin to reach the hair root. When energy reaches melanin in the hair, the light is absorbed, and converted into heat. The darker and thicker the hair, the more heat is produced. The heat damages the matrix (genocells) cells around the hair and the area next to the hair, which is responsible for the regrowth of hair. High power reaches hair follicles very deep. This enables a drastic reduction in body hair in the treated area.
German ASCLEPION technology is characterized with a special integrated cooling system, which guarantees fast and painless treatment. Also, MeDioStar NeXT lasers are advanced in a way that they have a large beam penetration into the hair melanin and low reabsorption into the surrounding tissue, which makes this treatment safe even for people with a darker skin, and also helps to avoid pigmentation complications.
ASCLEPION LED laser MeDioStar NeXT beams effectively eliminate unwanted hair, but it is really important to estimate other factors, which can determine the effectiveness of a laser treatment, like physiological and psychosomatic conditions, because they can define a greater or lesser number of treatments necessary to achieve the desired result.Treatment efficacy depends a lot on the hair thickness, shade, and depth of the roots. Also patient’s endocrine system and genotype is relevant, as patients with thin and light hair have to have more treatments then patients with dark hair. In order to achieve maximum effective result it is really important to follow the treatment plan, which will be given to you by a specialist.
Long-lasting effect can be reached after 4-6 treatments.
Usually the following areas are requested to treat: legs, bikini zone, underarms, hands, chin, upper lip area. Of course, hair can be lasered at any area, with exceptions being eye lids and areas around the eyes.

After the procedure
Specialist will consult you, asses your hair type and will introduce you to the process. He/she will also advise how to care for treated area at home. Here are a few general recommendations before you have a treatment:
Avoid sun baths. If your skin is tanned, whether from sunlight or from tanning lotions, it is recommended to wait from 7 to 10 days until the skin will get its natural tone. If the skin is very tanned it is advised to wait for 4 weeks.
Avoid anti-cellulite treatments 4 weeks before the treatment. Also antibiotics used to treat inflammatory acne are contraindication for laser treatment, so after you stop taking antibiotics wait another 4 weeks until the treatment.
Do not uproot your hair and do not use waxing tools or electric epilators for 4 weeks until the treatment. The hair removal can disrupt the hair follicle and this way affect the results.
After application of hydrogel, the handle of laser is pressed against the skin and moved over the treated area. The laser emits energy pulses in the range 8-14 mm and during the treatment a client feels a slight sting. Permanent hair laser removal is very pleasant due to the cooling system of the skin that is built into the laser. Cooling system has a slight anaesthetic feature that allows sensitive areas to be treated relatively painless. You might feel a slight pinching or stings during the treatment, but most clients tolerate procedure well.
The important thing is to undergo a treatment several times in a period of 4 to 8 months, because hair grows in certain stages and melanin is found only during growth stage. Different types of hair have different time of hair growth, and number of treatment depends on the type of hair and skin, as well as on genetic predisposition.
The treatment of small areas such as the upper lip, may take only a few minutes. The treatment of bigger areas like the bikini, can take about half an hour.
You may notice redness and swelling the first few hours after laser hair removal treatment. You can apply ice on the treated area to reduce discomfort.
After laser hair removal, avoid sun exposure: natural sunlight and tanning beds for 6 weeks and use a sunscreen (SPF 50).
The most common side effects of permanent laser hair removal:
Skin irritation – occasional discomfort, redness and swelling are possible after laser hair removal. All signs and symptoms usually disappear within a few hours.
Pigment change – laser hair removal can darken or lighten the treated skin, usually temporarily. Skin lightening can occur mainly in people with darker skin, especially if the laser is improperly used in unsuitable environments.
Permanent hair removal is not recommended on the eyelids and the surrounding area for possible serious injury.
