Skin and hair color
Treatment is particularly effective for people with dark hair and light skin. In this case, the melanin distribution is optimal, allowing the focused light pulses to be better absorbed by the hair. These light pulses are transported to the hair root where the color pigments denature due to the heating. This leads to a chain reaction which activates the scavenger cells (macrophages) which fight the cause of the inflammation, i.e., the hair root. Consequently, the hair root is permanently* removed, leading to the desired result of permanent smooth skin.
Reactions of the skin
In general, the reaction to light treatment is variable, but dark and thick hair is optimal for alexandrite laser treatment. Therefore, any desired part of the body can be treated, such as the legs, on the face or the bikini area.
Gray or very light hair cannot be treated due to the lack of melanin. Likewise, a treatment for dark-skinned people is excluded because the risk of burns is too high. However, we offer optimal alternatives for the aforementioned hair and skin types.
Immediately after the treatment
After the first treatment, the first successes can already be seen and after each subsequent treatment, the number and density of hairs is continuously reduced. As a rule, about 8 sessions are needed for an optimal result, but this depends on the individual circumstances of the customer.
