Medical laser hair treatment

Although there are various methods for hair removal, it is generally said that hair removal using “medical laser” is most effective. Laser equipment used in our clinic is a widely used model in the United States and has proven track record of providing safe and effective treatment.

There seems to be various methods depending on the clinic for laser hair removal treatment method, but we are carrying out multi-directional repetition of Crisscross fashion as multi-direction. Even with only one pass in one direction you can expect a certain degree of effect, but it may end with marginalization or insufficient treatment effect. In the Crisscross formula, we will treat it in two or more passes in different directions. The problem with this method is that if the practitioner does not recognize the reaction of the skin of the patient well, there is a possibility that it may become a surface burn in some parts, so only medical staff who received solid training are allowed to perform such treatment.

Is treatment of laser hair loss every 6 weeks?

There are individual differences in the cycle where hair grows, but it is generally 4-6 weeks.
If you are going to book next time, if you are a type of hair growing up well, you can do it after 4 weeks, otherwise it is fine even after 6 weeks.
Also, if you still have not been able to grow even after 4-5 weeks, you can change your reservation by phone (to postpone later).

It seems that laser hair depilation of estheties often takes 10 or more times to treat, but is there a difference in effect between the equipment in the clinic and the esthetic?

Our depilation laser is an American-made FDA approved “medical laser hair removal device”.
This device is very effective and powerful, but it can not be used unless it is a medical institution.
On the other hand, what seems to be called a laser in what is used in many esthetic salons, it is often “light therapy equipment”, the output is also weak, and it is more than doubled times (medical laser If it is 5 times, I hear that it is often necessary to have more than 10 times on esthetic equipment.
Also, basically hair removal is a medical practice, so if you interpret it by law, depilation with esthetics will be illegal if there is no supervisor of the doctor there in Japan.

My face and the knees always have sunburns and I still want to remove hair, can I?

If you already have a sunburn, hair removal is not recommended basically.
This is because pigments in the treated area may spatulate or deposit.
Especially, in the case of the lower limb (knee), it may come out like a zebra pattern.
Basically there are risks in the case of the face, but in the event that it is absolutely necessary, after considering the risk sufficiently, there are also possibilities on consultation with the doctor, so please consult us.

Is there any discount for treatment of laser hair depilation?

In our clinic, we will offer you services to everyone, for the first time we offer two designated body areas (listed on the website) at half price.

Also, since it is possible to recalculate if the density or area of ​​hair drastically decreases after the fourth time, please consult the staff.
Also, if you are going to do extensive treatment at more than three locations at once, there is a special discount system separately (from the third treatment), so please consult us.

Although my skin is very dark, can I treat laser hair depilation?

Our laser equipment is approved for depilation of all skin types in the US FDA.
The laser beam emits energy by identifying the black or brown hair.
The closer the skin color and hair color is to the skin, the more likely it is burns.
To prevent this, we change the wavelength of the laser (100 ms) or drop the output, but it is still easy to cause burns, so a cautious treatment plan is needed.

I have to treat laser hair depilation once and move to another country, but is it worth getting treatment?

Laser depilation at our clinic/hospital is an American-made medical laser device, and even one treatment can expect a considerable reduction of hair color.

Hair removal effect requires further treatment due to hair cycle, but please be assured that any laser equipment in other countries will be effective further treatment.

How many times will laser hair removal take effect?

The effects of laser hair depilation vary greatly among individuals and can not be said unconditionally, but in general, dramatic hair loss effects can be expected with 3-4 treatments.
This means that there are 3 phases;
1. hair growing now on the surface
2. There is also hair under the skin
3. There are still hair that is still asleep as saying hair.
Therefore, three or more treatments are needed at intervals of 4-6 weeks to treat hair of all cycles.
After that, from the thinner hair to the hair-growing state, until there is no more complete, there are individual differences, even if it is several times, sometimes many times, hair reduction may not be done more than the hair-growing state.
This is due to factors such as hair color, thickness, strength of hair root.
In either case, I think that if you treat 3-4 times, I think that you will understand the general direction of how effective it is.

I am pregnant (3 months) but can I get laser hair removal?

I think that laser therapy should be avoided during pregnancy as well as American FDA guidelines, as a general theory.

This is due to the fact that the effect of the laser on the maternal body during pregnancy has not been sufficiently investigated, in addition to changes in physiological phenomena such as increased sensitivity of pain, emotionally unstable, etc.

Is it better for hair to be shaved before treatment for laser hair removal? Should I come un-shaved?

In our medical laser, we can expect sufficient treatment effect after shaving hair.
Although it may seem to be “that” when there is experience of depilation with esthes etc, many of the instruments of the esthetics are weak in output with “light depilation equipment”, stretching the hair, with hair There are times when you take the method of “baking”.

Medical laser has very high specificity to hair, high output, it can expect sufficient treatment effect even if the hair does not grow, (less hair) and less pain.
However, if you withdraw with wax or hairdressing, you can not treat until you come back to some extent.

Is laser hair removal permanent?

Although our medical laser hair removal equipment has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the FDA uses the expression “Permanent Hair Reduction” for permission, which means that the effect of laser treatment is different depending on the skin quality and the color of the hair.

For example, in the case of Caucasian with dark black hair or Japanese, when enough effect is obtained by 4-6 or more treatments, it is often that you can expect such effects as being almost permanent.

However, with thin hair such as brown hair, there is a possibility that further epilation is difficult from the hair-growing state or it will come back thinner in the future.
In that sense, the expression “permanent hair reduction” is used.
