Skin comes in many tones and types, so we utilize different laser devices that target the hair without any side effects even on sensitive skin.
Alma-Q by Alma Lasers utilizes a Long-Pulsed Nd:YAG 1064nm laser that penetrates deep into the skin without losing its heating power. While usually used for lesions, the high-powered laser also damages the hair follicle in an area resulting in permanent hair reduction. This device is often used for long-lasting but temporary hair removal; the damaged hair follicles eventually recover and resume hair growth.
- Mediostar Next PRO
The Laser Hair Removal treatment of choice for clients with sensitive skin. Developed by Asclepion, the Mediostar Next PRO’s diode laser only generates heat within the skin itself, keeping the dermis intact. The power behind this laser results in permanent hair removal by destroying the hair follicles outright.
Lumenis’ PiQo4 uses high-energy, deep-reach wavelengths of nano and pico lasers that targets hair follicles. Instead of long-exposure lasers, short bursts ensure gradual yet effective hair removal. However, this device is usually not suited for dark skin, as the power of the laser can result in hypopigmentation.
The overall cost of Laser Hair Removal varies on the device to be used, the depth of the hair follicles, and the location of the target area.
In general, you can expect the price range per device below:
Mediostar Next Pro – PHP 2,000 – PHP 14,000
Alma-Q – PHP 10,000
PiQo-4 – PHP 5,000 – PHP 25,000
The final price will be determined by how many sessions are required to achieve the degree of hair removal requested by the client.
The Laser Hair Removal Experience
Your therapist will cleanse the target area. The chosen device’s wand will be used to fire laser bursts that will remove hair follicles, permanently stopping hair growth. Your skin will be smoother and lighter after just one session, and you will also receive other beneficial effects such as skin tightening and lesion removal.
A cream or ointment may be used to subdue any redness and discomfort. This treatment is most effective when done over multiple sessions; it is recommended to avoid shaving between treatments. Keep the areas away from the sun and extreme heat or cold.
