Laser Hair Removal Pre And Post Care

Laser Hair Removal

The word Laser corresponds to its acronym in English Light Amplified by Stimulated Emission of Radiation

During laser epilation, light is emitted which is absorbed by the pigment called (melanin) in the hair. That light energy that comes out with a light shot is converted into heat, which damages the tube-shaped sacs inside the skin, bone (hair follicles) that produce hair.

This damage inhibits or delays future hair growth. Currently there are different types of laser to remove hair, fortunately there is already a laser on the market that can work on all skin types (Fitzpatrick).

At Gloria Arenas Spa we have the privilege of being able to offer one of the most advanced techniques in terms of hair removal, ideal for all skin types; and it is SHR technology.

DermaCool Max SHR and IPL system.

One of the newest lasers available today is the Perfect Optimal Super Hair Removal (SHR) pulse technology. This technology works by creating a precise control of the pulses that allows the effects on the skin to be precise and without damaging effects. This system can provide optimal hair removal treatments for skin types ranging from Fitzpatrick I to VI. (Skin tones from lightest to darkest).

The SHR mode for hair removal allows a repetition of 10 pulses per second and a low fluence and high pulse repetition allow the temperature to rise in the hair follicle and allow a painless hair removal treatment.
