Hair removal – epilation


Epilation is unwanted hair removal using a beam of light that penetrates deep into the skin to destroy the hair’s bulb and root. Epilation is considered safe and non-invasive. The energy produced by the laser is absorbed by the hair pigment (melanin) and is further converted into thermal energy that destroys the hair bulb irreversibly. To achieve satisfactory effects, it is necessary to adjust the power and duration of the impulse individually to the type of skin and hair.

Each epilation session is always preceded by a consultation with a doctor who conducts medical interview and assesses the condition and type of the skin and hair to be able to appropriately customize the device parameters. In patients with no contraindications for the procedure, a laser test is performed. 

There are a number of preconditions that the patient needs to meet, the most important being not to sunbath for at least a month prior to the procedure. In addition, the skin to be treated cannot be dry or irritated; no depilation creams are allowed within a week before the procedure; no vitamin A and C, retinol, isotretinoin or fruit acids based creams or ointments can be used on the depilated sites of the skin for about 4 weeks before each planned session and no sun-sensitizing medicines and no herbal teas containing hypericum or calendula are to be used.

A natural reaction to the procedure is oedema or redness of the depilated skin area which clear up within hours or 2 to 4 days. During this time, the skin should be treated gently. Immediately after the procedure, the patient cannot use soap, spirit, deodorant-based skin tonics, and the body should be washed with non-soap gel, non-alcoholic tonic or lotion, or alternatively with water; no deodorant or antiperspirant use is allowed (in the case of depilation of armpits), instead allantoin or dexpanthenol cream and powder may be applied. After washing, the skin should be dried gently, with no robbing, no irritating the skin in any way; exfoliating preparations may be used after at least two weeks after the procedure. The depilated sites should not be exposed to sun for two weeks.

Further depilation sessions should be repeated every 4 to 8 weeks (depending on the body parts and individual factors) until the required effect is achieved.

Due to numerous contraindications for the procedure, in the Healthy Skin Centre, every epilation treatment is performed by medical personnel (a doctor or a nurse) after the patient’s health assessment by a doctor.
