The presence of hair on men, is an andro-genetic condition of physiological type. There are cases, however, where there is an excessive growth of hair on parts of the body where it is normally present and not normally present. This condition is called Hypertrichosis (cheekbones, shoulders, neck, back).
With the use of photo-epilation we can eliminate not only the excessive hair but also reduce it because it can be bothersome.
The hair removal means to delete hair permanently from the hair bulb. Today we can do it by the pulsed light (IPL - Intense Pulsed Light): we can have a reduction of an unwanted hair in various areas of the face and body representing approximately the 80% of the bulbar heritage
The hair absorbes This particular light and then transmits it, in form of thermal energy (heat),to the follicles which are progressively destroyed. During the session only hair in the growth active phase is affected the Anagen phase. After one month you will find other hair in the Anagen phase and repeating the treatment it will be possible to destroy another part of the bulbar heritage.
A session of hair removal can last from a few minutes to more than an hour, depending on the size of the area to be depilated. After treatment there may be a slight reddening of the treated area which will disappear in the space of a few hours. Sun exposure is always recommended for at least 5-7 days after treatment
How many sessions are required
For a stable permanent reduction are needed 4-8 sessions. From the first session you will observe the significant drop of unwanted hair in the treated area accompanied by an improvement in the quality of the skin due to the action of pulsed light.
Wich areas can be treated
All areas of the body (chest area, shoulders, back) and face can be treated. The spot is particularly large, about 4 cm ², so even large surfaces can be photoepilat in a short time.
The treatment is contraindicated if the skin is tanned or if the patient makes use of photosensitizing drugs. In addition, the hair removal with IPL is not very effective in the case of white hair and lint with little pigmentation.
- Not recommended tanning lamps or sun exposure before treatment
- Do not make a hair removal by waxing or tweezing, instead you can with a razor hair removal as it guarantees the presence of the hair bulb in the follicle itself.
- It is not indicated brightening the hair before the treatment because
IPL is not very effective on light hair.
