Frequently Asked Questions
Laser hair removal
On average, 6 to 9 laser treatments are required for the face and between 4 and 6 treatments for the body. The interval between treatments varies between 4 and 10 weeks.
A hair has a growth cycle and goes through three different phases. The hair in the Anagen phase (growth phase) reacts best to laser treatment. The hair in the Katagene (transition phase) and Telogene (rest phase) phases cannot absorb light. By maintaining a strict interval between treatments, new hairs in the anagen phase are treated each time.
Pulses are accurately applied over the entire treatment area. The short pulse can be compared to a rubber band hitting the skin. The treatment is therefore not painless, but generally well tolerated. Afterwards, your skin is treated with a cold pack, and soothing Aloe Vera gel and sunscreen are applied.
The hair must not be epilated or waxed. However, you can cut or shave the hair to make it less noticeable.
Depending on the area and your supplementary package, the health insurer may provide a reimbursement for a laser hair removal treatment.
At Huidzorg West, the skin therapists are specialised in treating all skin types and skin colours. Different skin colours are treated with different lasers. For example, the Alexandrite laser is used on light skins and the ND: Yag laser is most suitable for coloured skins.
