The XXI. century laser technology in Miercurea-Ciuc



How does laser hair removal work
• “Selective Photo-Thermolysis” Melanin as the chromophore absorbs laser light
• “Hair Conduction Theory’’ A significant amount of heat is conducted to the hair shaft and follicle causing thermal damage
• “Extended Theory of Selective Photo-Thermolysis” Follicular stem cells in the bulge and dermal papilla are secondary targets by heat diffusion

Realistic expectations

Percent clearance may vary according to:
• Skin type
• Hair density/color/thickness
• Physiological condition – genetics, age, gender, hormonal status, general health
There may be some discomfort and transient redness and/or swelling associated with treatment
There is a risk of adverse events in every treatment – these should be explained prior to treatment and signing on an Informed Consent Form
 
Contraindications
• Patients who have had prior problems with laser therapy should be carefully screened before treatment
• Treatment should not be attempted on patients with the following conditions in the treatment area:
• Active infections
• Skin cancer
• Dysplastic nevi
• Tattoos
• Significant concurrent skin conditions or any inflammatory skin conditions
• Active cold sores, open lacerations or abrasions
• Chronic or cutaneous viral, fungal, or bacterial diseases
• Deep suntan, recent suntan, sunburn or artificially tanned skin or pre-cancerous lesions at the treatment areas

Precautions
• Do not treat over tattoos
• Underlying melasma (upper lip for instance) should be cleared prior to hair removal
• Patients who easily bruise, take aspirin or anticoagulants
• Either treat tanned patients with conservative parameters or postpone treatment to reduce the risk of pigmentary changes
• Reject use of other hair removal treatments, such as waxing, plucking, tweezing, or electrolysis, in the treatment area within the preceding 3 weeks

Additional Features

Facial tip for very small treatment areas

• Ears
• Glabella
• Eye brows
• Upper lip
• Chin
• Fingers
• Toes

2. A unique disposable tip for treatment of intimate areas

3. Cooling module

The module lightguide is cooled by a thermoelectric cooling method to reduce patient discomfort during treatment and to reduce post-procedure side effects, such as local skin redness and swelling. The tissue is cooled through a metallic ring and a cold sapphire window. The lightguide's temperature is reduced to 4ºC during system operation.

4. Alma Speed Gel Set

Alma Speed Gel is a topical formula that maximizes the effectiveness of laser and light-based hair removal technology. Using nanotechnology, the molecules of the gel are designed to bond with the melanin chromophore, significantly increasing energy absorption within the hair follicle. This increased absorption speeds up the treatment process, allowing you to achieve the same results in half the time while also using less energy per treatment session.
