How does Laser Hair Removal work?
The focused laser targets the pigment in the hair follicle. When the heat is absorbed it damages the hair follicle. We can then achieve permanent hair reduction after repeated sessions with our Gentle Yag Pro.
What is the difference with IPL?
IPL stands for Instensed Pulse Light and a gel is applied on the skin. Pulses of light are emitted during the treatment. Our laser treatments uses specific wavelength to treat laser hair removal. They are highly specific, stronger and more effective than IPL systems. Which is why you can achieve permanent hair reduction with lesser sessions with our machine that with IPL or Diode machines.

Multiple sessions will give you the best results. Ideally, the interval for laser hair removal is 4-6 weeks. This will also vary on your hair type.
