At Huidzorg Amsterdam Oosterpark we use a diode laser for hairremoval. In comparion to IPL/EPL, is the laser we use not a light device but a laser device. This provides is a more effective and more powerfull treatment. The diode laser has a cooling system that makes the treatment less painfull. The treatment is only done by registered skin therapists that have a medical AGB and BIG registration. There is a upcoming law that only skintherapists and dermatologists can do these treatments for maximum safety.
What can you expect during the first consultation?
During the first consultation we check your relevant medical history. We look for any possible contra-indications. We take a look at the skin and hairs. With consent we can decide to make a before picture for your dossier. A treatment plan is made and we provide advice and information about the treatment. In some cases the treatment costs are covered by the insurance. We advice to check your insurance policy. We need a valid indentification (driver license, ID card, passport). Before we decide to treat, we do one laser pulse to see how the skin react. We can plan a appointment for the first laser treatment.
What can you expect during the first treatment?
Before the first treatment we ask you not to remove the hairs in the previous days/weeks, so we can get a good idea of what the hairs look like. This is important so we can decide the laser settings. First we shave the hairs, this is important so we don’t burn the hairs that are outside the skin. The laser has a cooling system what makes the treatment less painful. After the treatment the skin can be red and a bit swollen. This will disappear in a couple of days. In some cases itching can occur. The hairs will grow and then fall out.
How many treatments are needed?
There are about 6 to 10 treatment needed with a interval off 4 to 6 weeks. Underlaying factors like age, hormones and area which is treated can have a effect on the treatment effects. During the consult we look at these factors to make a good personal estimation.
