Laser hair removal Leeds


Laser hair removal Leeds. Whether that is laser or intense pulsed light (IPL) both have been clinically proven to be safe, efficient and a cost effective method of hair removal. Cristianos have over 24 years experience in using these methods over five clinic sites nationwide. Our expertise and unrivalled clinical experience has been recognised by medical professionals across the Country and resulted in us providing treatment on behalf of the NHS and BUPA in addition to our private clients.


How laser/IPL works


Although very different technologies both laser and IPL systems use the melanin (colour), in the hair shaft to absorb the therapeutic light, thus heating and destroying the target hair follicle by conduction. This is known as selective photothermolysis. For this to work effectively there must be more dark colour in the hair than in the surrounding skin.


Benefits of laser/IPL hair removal


The major benefit of laser/IPL hair removal is that it is clinically proven to kill hair follicles on a long term basis. We at Cristianos have proven results lasting over twenty years. There are other benefits such as laser/IPL is suitable for the treatment of small or large areas of hair growth, there is very little down time after treatment, with only mild side effects. Laser/IPL hair removal is non-invasive and runs no risk of infection. The unwanted hair growth does not need to be grown in order to have treatment and the number of treatments required is far less than traditional electrolysis.


Systems we use


There are a plethora of systems on the market, the systems we use are all clinically proven to be safe and effective. We choose to have a selection of laser/IPL in order that we can treat a variety of hair and skin types. In this way we can offer our clients the best treatment to produce optimum results. We use the Chromos 694 Ruby Laser, Lightsheer Diode laser and the Energist Ultra Variable Pulsed Light.

How does laser hair removal work?


Before we can fully understand how laser hair removal works in we need to look at the process of hair growth. On the surface of the skin all hair looks the same but the condition of the hair follicle is vitally important to the success of laser hair removal.


The effects of Ruby Laser light on hair growth was first observed by Professor Marc Clement whilst conducting a scientific experiment. This discovery was followed by substantial theoretical and experimental studies leading to the prediction of laser parameters that should achieve depilation.


Starting with a basic understanding of the laser tissue interaction, computer models were constructed to simulate effects on hair and surrounding skin when illuminated with intense pulse laser light. These models allowed the prediction of the laser parameters necessary to achieve depilation whilst minimising the risk of unwanted side effects. The ultimate goal being a fast and safe procedure, which could be carried out on the vast majority of the population.


On completion of the theoretical study, an ethically approved trial was carried out to determine if the computer prediction matched the clinical reality. Laser depilation is based on the technique know as selective photothermolysis. This is based upon the principle of using laser energy to selectively destroy a target beneath the surface of the skin whilst leaving the surrounding healthy tissue intact. The premise is therefore to irradiate the skin surface with a suitable laser source, which only deposits its energy in the target, the light passing harmlessly through the other tissue components.
