Recomandari in 4 pasi

Inainte de tratament


- Trebuie sa renuntati cu cel puțin 4 saptamani înainte de sedinta de epilare laser dioda la metodele de epilare care implica smulgerea firelor de par (ceara, epilator electric…) se va utiliza doar lama de ras.

- Trebuie evitata expunerea la soare cu 3–5 zile inainte si dupa sedinta de fotoepilare. Evitati folosirea unor produse agresive, precum cele de exfoliere.

- Este recomandat ca tratamentul sa fie aplicat pe pielea curata, fara creme, deodorante sau alte produse cosmetice.

- Zona tratata va fi proaspat rasa cu o seara înainte de tratament.




In timpul tratamentului


Epilarea definitiva laser dioda primelase, este un tratament foarte rapid si confortabil pentru pacienti. Aplicatorul aparatului încorporeaza sistemul „Crystal Freeze”, care regleaza temperatura automat și constant, astfel încât procedura de epilare este 100% sigura, fara durere.

Durata tratamentului va depinde de extinderea zonei epilata.

Spre exemplu, buza superioara poate dura 5 min., 15 min. axila si picioare intre 30-60 min.

Pentru a obtine cele mai bune rezultate, este recomandat un protocol de minim 6 sedinte care se realizeaza intr-un interval de 6-8 saptamani. Pentru zona fetei sunt recomandate minim 6-8 sedinte.

Sunt necesare minim 6 sedinte intrucat, nu putem decât să epilăm firul de părul aflat în faza de creștere, faza anagena. Firul de par creste in 3 faze: anagena(de maturitate), catagena (de degradare) si telogena (de repaus). In momentul epilarii definitive firele de par se afla in diferite faze de crestere, pentru a fi indepartate complet e necesar ca toate firele de par sa ajunga in faza anagena.

Cat dureaza epilarea cu laser se interzice epilarea cu ceara, penseta, epilator se va folosi doar lama de ras




Dupa tratament


De evitat:

  • inainte si dupa tratament expunerea la soare, solar cat si alte proceduri laser pe aceeasi zona 3-5 zile;

  • in ziua tratamentului dusurile fierbinti , sauna;

  • deodorantele sau cremele/emulsiile de corp care contin alcool;

Reactii adverse: sunt minime, caldura locala, intepaturi, usturime sau roseata tranzitorie a tegumentului ( eritem ). Aparitia de mici papule tranzitorii la nivelul zonei tratate ( edem perifolicular ).

Firele de par vor creste ca de obicei dupa prima sedinta, insa dupa 10-14 zile radacinile afectate de laser vor intra in regres.

Pentru a ține sub control foliculii de păr, care se pot activa în urma modificărilor hormonale, și a vă bucura de o piele mătăsoasă timp îndelungat, sunt recomandate ședințe de întreținere efectuate o dată la 6-12 luni.
