Laser hair removal
Who wouldn't want a life without hair in unwanted places? Unwanted hair growth can make you insecure, but it can also be a difficult problem for both men and women. It is sometimes accompanied by redness and bumps and in some cases with ingrown hairs and annoying inflammation. Even in some cases, inflammation can even cause scarring. Pilonidal cysts (sinus pilonidalis) can also be prevented by lasering away hair growth on the spot. With an average of 8 treatments you can say goodbye to these hairs in most cases.
Laser vs IPL
IPL and laser hair removal are often wrongly placed under the same heading, even though there is a big difference between the two methods. With an IPL treatment flash light is used and with a Laser laser light. With IPL you heat a large surface of the skin. This light is diffused, but due to the distribution of the light over the surface of the skin, each hair follicle only receives a limited amount of energy. This weakens hair follicles, but does not destroy them completely and when the hair follicles strengthen again, the hairs will grow back. With a laser device, all the energy is bundled and all energy only goes to the hair follicles and you leave the skin alone. As a result, hair follicles are completely destroyed and hair does not grow back. Usually an IPL treatment seems cheaper than a laser treatment, but with a laser treatment you can permanently remove hairs and it is also much safer for the skin.
The treatment starts with inspecting and cleaning the skin, after which the settings are tailored. Each pulse feels like a pinprick with a short heat sensation, which disappears immediately afterwards. Thanks to the cooling system in the laser, the skin is immediately cooled and the treatment is well tolerated. After the treatment, the skin may look red and feel warm. This is always only temporary in nature. Within about 2 weeks, the hairs will become thinner or disappear permanently.
At Inskin Institute we work with Diolaze from Inmode. This is one of the most advanced lasers in the field of hair removal and we can safely treat any skin type with it. The gold standard for permanent hair removal of unwanted hair growth is the diode laser and ensures that the hair follicles are reached deep in the skin. The hair root is warmed up by the energy and tackled, so that no hair grows back. During the treatment process you will quickly benefit from thinner hairs and shaving irritations will soon disappear. A treatment with the Diolaze is a laser treatment that destroys hair follicles in a very safe and effective way and with which we can permanently remove up to 90% hairs.
The Diolaze carries the strict FDA seal of approval, which monitors the safety of treatment and equipment.

During the treatment process it is important that you do not epilate, wax or wax, because this ensures that there are no hairs in the hair follicles that are necessary for laser treatment to destroy the breeding ground. You can cut or shave the hair during the treatment process. It is important to shave the hairs 1-2 days before the treatment. In general, treatment can be continued in the summer.
