Laser hair removal

✔ Permanent result

✔ Possible on all body parts

✔ Safe and gentle procedure

As desirable as full hair on the head is for men and women, for many people they are undesirable in other places. Laser beams can destroy the hair roots with a targeted approach, which stops hair growth on the face, under the armpits, in the genital area, on the arms and legs, on the back or on the chest from scratch and permanently.

Everything you need to know about laser hair removal

Here you will find all the important information about laser treatment for hair removal in our dermatological beauty practice in Berlin-Charlottenburg.

First, the laser is individually adjusted to the respective hair colour and hair structure. Then the lowest part of the hair root is targeted and irradiated with high-frequency light on a very specific wavelength. The energy of the light is absorbed by the pigment melanin in the hair and destroys the hair follicle in a way that the hair can no longer grow back. 

Once the hair root is destroyed, it can no longer produce and grow hair. Thus, you benefit permanently from the treatment. 

However, we cannot guarantee 100% removal of all hair in the treated area. For one thing, the laser can only treat the hair or hair follicles that you have today and not the hair that may grow later. And on the other hand, there may still be hair roots in the skin area that have not formed any hair at the time of the treatment, but will form a hair later. 

In order for the laser hair removal to be performed, the hair in the affected skin area must not be bleached, waxed, plucked or epilated for about 4 weeks prior to treatment. Two days before the laser treatment you should shave the skin area.

In our practice we work with the “Alma Harmony XL Pro”,one of the best medical lasers available on the market. The state-of-the-art device offers tailored treatment solutions for every skin type and patient age group thanks to the effective combination therapies.

The Alma Harmony XL Pro is approved for 65 medical and cosmetic treatments and accordingly has a wide range of applications. In addition to hair removal, these include the reduction of wrinkles, the treatment of couperose, the reduction of scars or the removal of pigment spots.

In extensive clinical studies, all techniques and treatment approaches with this laser device have been proven to be safe to use. 

One session lasts about 20 minutes. How many sessions you require and thus how long the result of the treatment lasts in total depends on the body part, your skin colour, the number of hairs and the specific treatment goal. Light, thin hair (down), for example, requires more treatments than dark, thick hair.

As a rule, about 3 to 4 sessions are necessary. We are happy to discuss the possible treatment plan with you during the first appointment. An interval of 4 weeks is usually necessary between the individual sessions.

Laser treatment is noticeable but relatively painless, although the sensation of pain varies from person to person. We cool the skin down during the treatment, which helps to soothe it. 

If the treated skin area is usually covered by clothing, you should choose clothing that is as loose as possible to avoid skin irritation from rubbing clothing as much as possible.

The procedure may cause itching, redness, skin irritation and small swellings in the treated areas. However, these usually disappear after a few hours and days. 

In the first few days after the laser treatment, you should apply a high-quality skin care product without artificial additives. Furthermore, refrain from strenuous activities that cause you to sweat, because the sweat can burn the treated area. 

In addition, you should protect the treated areas from strong sunlight with sun cream (sun protection factor 50) for the first 4 weeks after each session. Please also refrain from solarium visits and self-tanning as well as from taking showers that are too cold or too hot.
