Laser Hair Removal - Hair removal treatments using diode laser allow partial and permanent hair reduction. Lasting reduction applies to approx. 80-90% of the hair. The rest of the hair can grow back during lifetime, but their number is smaller and they are usually delicate and lighter in colour. INVICTUS is equipped with an intuitive security system, so that the side effects are almost impossible. Additional comfort during the procedure is provided by a cooling mechanism.
Laser Hair Removal allows heat to remove hair follicle. This is proportional to the quantity and volume of dye contained within. This process leads to the destruction and loss of hair follicle. The operation of the INVICTUS laser and emitted by the device energy is not harmful to health. diode Laser works superficially and does not interfere with day to day life activities of the customer. Treatments can be performed on people of all ages. The cooling mechanism has an effect on the skin to relieve pain and give a pleasant feeling, without causing discomfort during the procedure. Each individual patient may react differently to the laser. There may be a pinking, swelling, which can last up to several days after surgery. Each patient reacts to the laser light differently, that is why the skin after the procedure can be rosy, and may also experience swelling around bellows, keeping up to several hours of surgery, and even a few days with sensitive skin.
What kind of hair best responds to laser therapy?
Chromophore in the treatment is melanin, which is why the hair containing a large amount of a dye (preferably black). Important in hair removal is the colour of the skin, the lighter the skin and darker the hair (more contrast), the better the effect of hair reduction.
Why treatment must be repeated?
That is because all the hairs at the moment are in the same phase of the cycle. Hair goes through successive steps of: anagen - a phase of growth (the most important for treatment), catagen (dormant phase), during which the hair does not grow from 3 to 8 weeks and are still connected to the hair follicle and telogen, during which the hair is moved in the bellows (where at the same time a new one is created).
Are your hair going to disappear once and for all?
Diode laser allows partial and permanent hair reduction. Lasting reduction applies to approx. 80-90% of the hair. The rest of the hair can grow back during lifetime, but their number is smaller and they are usually delicate and lighter in colour.
Should patients with hirsutism not perform laser hair removal treatments?
Of course they should, but they must keep in mind of meanwhile regulation of disorders with an endocrinologist (or a gynecologist) because without that, hair removal is not very effective. Women with hirsutism have to be prepared to perform in some occasions more treatments and a possibility to repeat them in future.
How to prepare for laser hair removal?
The main recommendations for laser hair removal relates to staying away from tanning of the skin (including solarium and self-tanning or sunless-tan) and hair removal at least a month prior to the laser procedure. It is recommended to shave the hair a day before surgery.
Why your hair immediately before the procedure should be shaved?
During the procedure, hair projecting above the surface of the skin will undergo combustion, which can lead to skin burns and unpleasant sensations. Besides, such a procedure will be less effective because of the energy emitted from the laser will scatter on the regrown portion of the hair and not the one which is deep in the skin (where there are also cells responsible for regrowth of hair).

Care after the surgery:
How often should surgery take place?
The number of procedures performed for laser hair removal depends on the individual. Often it depends on the area on which surgery is performed, skin type and hair colour. The effects are already visible after the first treatment, however it is recommended to perform a series of treatments (3-5 treatments), at 4 week intervals.
