How can a reputable cosmetic dermatology practice compete in this saturated market?
we use multiple lasers that are the most effective for each skin type and we have the experience and medical knowledge to use aggressive laser settings to achieve faster and better results without compromising your safety.
Separately, we offer threading for eyebrows and facial hair.
One laser for all skin type e.g. a Diode laser, which requires more treatments for light skin, and many more treatments for darker skin.
IPL - Not effective, usually is offered by Spas and Medspas
The laser beam targets the darker pigment of the hair follicle and destroys it. However, hair follicles have a life cycle of four phases and the hair follicle is sensitive to the laser energy only when the hair is in one specific phase - the growth phase (telogen phase). Unfortunately, a single treatment cannot destroy all hair follicles and any moment only 50% of the hair follicles are in the telogen phase. Therefore, multiple treatments must be performed in a very specific time interval to target most of the follicles when they are in the telogen phase. It is easier for the laser beam to target darker follicle pigment when the background skin is light. When the skin is darker, some of the beam is diverted and hits the skin. Therefore, not only is there a risk that the skin pigment will be damaged, but also the beam energy that hits the follicle is often not strong enough to destroy it. Therefore, the treatment is less effective for hair in darker skin and more treatments may be needed to achieve expected results.
Normally, 4-6 treatments are needed for people with light skin and dark hair. About 6-8 treatments are needed for people with dark skin.
