Laser hair removal is a process that permanently removes unwanted hair in an area of the body. We use Alexandrite and diode lasers for this purpose. These lasers affect the hair follicle through a series of mechanisms. Thus, permanent hair removal is achieved.
Nearly all hairs are removed from the area. This requires an average of 6 sessions. Doses and laser type applied from the first session are very effective in success. For this reason, laser epilation should be performed in professional centres.
You will start to get results immediately from the first session. Lasers affect the hair in the growth stage. For this reason, the area is cleaned of hair with repeated sessions. An average of six sessions is enough.
Laser hair removal, which we have been using for many years and we are sure of its results, makes permanent hair removal. This is because it acts directly on the hair root. In this way, permanent epilation occurs. No hair grows in the area again. The effect of laser epilation is lifelong.
Laser hair removal can be applied to the whole body at the same time. We scan each body area separately with the laser. It takes about 1.5 hours on average. First we shorten the hair in the area. We adjust the appropriate device and doses. After that, we start the laser procedure. After the procedure, we apply moisturizing creams. Afterwards, there is no harm in returning to your home and work.
14 important things to know before laser hair removal
- Laser hair removal is a painful procedure, but not too painful to be exaggerated
The laser acts on the hair stem cells. Slight pain is inevitable due to the laser energy that turns into heat. But the pain is very temporary. In addition, the cooling system in our lasers ensures that you feel the pain to a minimum.
- You have to be patient for the first results
Hair disappears immediately after the laser hair removal session. It completely falls out within a week or two. But some hair grows again. But there is some reduction in each session. Approximately 20% reduction in one session is normal. For this reason, you have to wait for all your sessions to end and patiently come to your sessions. Because the laser is only effective on hair in the growth phase.
- The area should be shaved before laser
It is useful to shorten the hair 4-5 days before the session. The session will be faster. There is no harm in using a razor. Contrary to popular belief, it does not thicken or increase the hairs. No epilator is used before the session. Or hair is not removed with wax.
- Make-up is removed before the session
Do not wear make-up, especially concealer-intensive make-up. This also applies after the session. If there is sunscreen, it is removed. Any deodorant or perfume should be removed. It is necessary to wash with water or wipe with a wet wipe.
- Do not tan before your session
We do not recommend sunbathing because it is harmful. However, sunbathing also causes side effects during the laser treatment. Therefore, do not tan before the session. Refrain from using tanning creams at least 1 month before.
- Do not use exfoliating creams or solutions before the session
You should also have given them up a month ago.
- The laser hair removal session is very short
For example, we can say that it will take five minutes including shaving the armpits.
- Do not take a hot bath after laser hair removal
Avoid applications that stress the skin, such as extremely hot water and sauna. Do not scrub the area. However, a warm or cold shower is fine. It is better not to exercise excessively for at least 24 hours. We don’t want you to sweat excessively.
- Avoid excessive sun exposure after the session
If you will be exposed to excessive sun in a very sunny area, apply sunscreen to the area. But do not sunbathe to get a tan.
- Do not use peeling creams or solutions after the session
Do not apply creams or solutions containing glycolic acid, fruit acids, retinol and retinoic acid. It can irritate your skin. It will cause spots. Likewise, mechanical peeling such as chemical peeling or scrub is not performed after laser.
- Laser hair removal has some additional benefits
The complete treatment of ingrown hairs is laser hair removal. The skin becomes slightly shiny and taut.
- Do not pluck hair that does not fall out
Usually there is no hair left on the surface after laser treatment. But even if there is any hair left, it will fall out spontaneously. Do not clean it with materials such as tweezers or wax. So do not pluck the hairs.

Laser burned hairs do not grow back. But the hair must be in the growth phase. In other words, if the hair root can be burned, it becomes permanent epilation. Approximately 20% of the hair on our body is in the growth phase. For this reason, a decrease of this amount is actually expected in laser hair removal in each session.
After all sessions are over, the hair does not grow back. Because the laser affects the hair root. So laser hair removal is permanent hair removal.
Yes, it does. But it must be done with the right devices and in effective doses. We recommend professional centers for this. Professional centers where doctors like us work are the right address for you.
