Skin Therapist NL practices only work with Alexandriet, Diode and ND-YAG hair removal lasers. Due to the wide range of three different laser devices, all skin types can be treated with us.
You will be treated by a HBO trained and quality registered skin therapist. If you are covered by additional insurance, there is even a chance that you may be reimbursed for the facial laser treatment.
How does a laser treatment work?
Laser treatment can remove unwanted hair. The laser light is absorbed by the pigment in the hair and at the bottom of the hair follicle. To prevent the laser from affecting the pigment in the skin, each treatment is carefully tailored to your skin type. The Alexandrite and Diode are the best hair removal systems up to Fitzpatrick skin type III. The ND-YAG laser is the best hair removal system between Fitzpatrick skin types IV and VI. Skin therapist NL has the perfect match for laser hair removal of every skin color.
With each flash, a selective heating of hair follicles located deep in the skin occurs. The laser releases its energy in a fraction of a second, just long enough to destroy the hair follicle and short enough to protect the surrounding skin structures and epidermis. In principle, this method of hair removal can permanently remove disturbing hair in any part of the body, both in women and men.
How many treatments are needed?
The hair growth cycle consists of three phases: The growth phase, the transition phase and the resting phase. Each individual hair can be in a different phase. For example, a certain number of hairs may grow at a certain moment while others do not. They are then in a resting phase. The hair root is only sensitive to the laser during the growth phase, because it is still attached to the hair. This allows both the hair and the hair root to be both heated. Because the hairs are in different phases, multiple laser hair removal treatments are required for each location, on average 6 to 8 treatments. The frequency of the treatment depends on the area to be lasered. This is often between 4 and 8 weeks.

First consult free and without obligation
The first appointment is free and without obligation. During the first appointment, the intake, we will go through your details and relevant medical history with you. Here we check whether there is perhaps a (relative) contraindication, so that treatment may not be an option.
We also look closely at the skin and then draw up an individual treatment plan based on this skin analysis. You will receive information about the treatment and advice.
If there is no contraindication, a so-called test flash can be put on the skin to see how it reacts to this. This way you also know how the laser treatment will feel.
Reimbursement by health insurers
Many insurers reimburse a laser hair removal treatment for the face, transition or skin that is transplanted, under the supplementary insurance. You can check this with the policy of your insurance or in our overview of reimbursements for laser hair removal. Sometimes a referral from your general practitioner or specialist is required to qualify for the reimbursement.
