There are lots (and I mean lots) of at home IPL hair removal kits which personally I wasn’t attracted to. When it comes to lasers and intense skincare treatments I am just one of those those who prefers to get a specialist to work their magic on me, rather than trying to become one through getting a kit from my local pharmacy. I went to a clinic in my hometown which had recently opened for some treatments.
I visited about 2 sessions, but didn’t see any results – Whatsoever. So, it was fair to state I wasn’t likely to waste any more money. Strike one. FYI – I know those who have had treatments of IPL done (mainly all Asian/Indian skin types) and i also have already been told it takes a lot of sessions to see results. I are also told by my current laser technician (and head trainer & educator of Polaris Laser Hair Removal) that IPL will not work with Indian skin and contains temporary benefits. It basically isn’t the very best laser for too long term hair-free fuss.
The next time round, I went for any YAG laser but to my luck, my technician had blagged her distance to making me think she was doing us a favour. When in reality, her so called YAG laser was even more of 永久脫毛 then other things. I notice you it made my hair just a little fainter, but nothing drastic – and I had at the very least 6 sessions. Once again, I wasted not only my amount of time in travel but a lot of money! Strike two.
Within the last 5 months or so I have been seeing a lovely laser technician, who lucky for me, is located in the same county as me! I had told her each of the problems I actually have had in the past with hair laser removal and she gave me her honest and professional advice. She explained in my opinion that IPL isn’t very effective (especially on Asian skin) for hair removal. It functions whilst you are receiving it done but provide annually roughly and you may view your hair regrowth returning. The penetration of the laser isn’t as deep and doesn’t target the hair follicle towards the extent as a YAG laser does.
I then explained the so-called YAG laser treatment I was getting before visiting her. Which is when she did a little digging (in her own free time) and informed me that I had been missold my laser treatment. The laser which I was getting done was more comparable to IPL than a proper YAG laser. It absolutely was even more of a diode – basically which means I wasn’t getting the hemyhh results has I would have with a proper or must i say real YAG laser!
She then told me all about her laser. The laser she uses is the Long Pulsed Nd: YAG Laser by Polaris Medical. She actually is a specialist educator/trainer for this particular laser and has been doing the industry for 20 years – she basically knows her shiz.
This laser can be used for hair removal of hair on all kinds of skin, light to dark. One of many advantages of this laser is the fact its melanin absorption is quite low. Melanin is the thing that gives your skin it’s colour. The more melanin you might have, the darker the skin and the other way round. Due to it’s low absorption of this, there exists very little risk of the epidermis to get damaged by hyper/hypo pigmentation. Which means that the long pulsed Nd:Yag lasers is idea for for hair removal on medium to dark skin!
I will need to go with clean, lotion/potion free, makeup free, perfume/deoderant free and hair free. Yep, so that you must shave before hand (everywhere you need to target!). This really is so the laser can arrive at the folicle without the hair strands getting in the way.
I actually have learnt the hard way by accidentally having some perfume in my neck and also the laser burning my skin – luckily it wasn’t that bad (my Elizabeth Adren Eight Hour Cream sorted me out!). However, this really is common and will happen.
During Laser Treatment
Throughout the laser session, the part/s of your body are sectioned off (as you have seen within the picture above). The Long Puled Nd: YAG laser is used with an air-conditioning type cooling tube that is hovered on the area of the epidermis since it is getting lasered – this can be which means you don’t feel the heat. The sensation of getting this done is similar to someone poking you with a needle. Depending on your pain threshold or the region you possibly will not feel it at all.
