Tired of those leg hairs that keep growing back? Do chest hairs prevent you from proudly going shirtless? It might be time to consider permanent laser hair removal.

The Principle of Permanent Hair Removal

Who hasn't cursed their unwanted hair? It bothers us, and even when removed, it inevitably grows back. However, the solution to this problem is simple: opt for permanent hair removal in Paris. With laser hair removal, you can say goodbye to any body hair (even facial hair). It's important to know that laser hair removal takes place over several sessions, regardless of the body part. These sessions are spaced several weeks apart.

But how does the laser gradually eliminate hair? The laser targets the melanin in the hairs, the area responsible for hair production, to burn it. This destroys the hair, which will be ejected from the body a few days later. Proper preparation before a hair removal session is essential, including shaving the area to be treated 1 to 3 days in advance. Most importantly, you must not have tanned (naturally or otherwise) for more than 2 months before getting hair removal and should not have used any other hair removal methods in the month preceding the session. Your aesthetic doctor will remind you of all the steps to follow and inform you if permanent hair removal is contraindicated for you.

Types of Lasers

It is important to note that permanent hair removal is especially suitable for light skin with dark hair. However, it is now possible to treat medium and dark skin with another type of laser.

• The Alexandrite laser for light skin. The most common laser is used for phototypes 1, 2, 3, and sometimes 4. It has a wavelength of 755 nanometers. It is contraindicated for darker skin, as it might burn the skin along with the hair.

• The Nd Yag laser for dark skin. Used for phototypes 4, 5, and 6 and has a wavelength of 1064 nm. With a lower intensity, it won't burn dark skin. However, this laser requires more sessions and can be more painful.

It's important not to confuse laser hair removal with pulsed light hair removal. The latter is not permanent but long-lasting. Therefore, you won't be done with hair removal if you choose this method.
