There are many methods of hair removal to choose from, some are temporary and others provide permanent hair removal or permanent hair reduction. Whilst waxing, threading and depilatory creams provide only a short-term solution to the problem of unwanted hair removal both laser and electrolysis can offer permanent hair removal.

 

Laser and Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) can only treat hair containing dark pigment therefore you may see the term ‘permanent hair reduction’ as any hair growth without pigment remains untreated, however electrolysis can produce permanent hair removal for all hair types.

 

At Cristianos we provide all methods of permanent hair removal under one roof, from facial hair removal, to bikini hair removal and full body hair removal. Using laser hair removal or electrolysis we can provide a permanent solution to the problem of unwanted hair no matter the colour of your unwanted hair growth.

Laser hair removal London

 

Permanent hair removal, whether that is laser hair removal or Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) has been clinically proven to be the safest, most efficient and cost effective method of removing unwanted hair. Cristianos have over 25 years of experience in using these methods of laser hair removal over five clinic sites nationwide. Our expertise and unrivalled clinical experience has been recognised by medical professionals across the UK and resulted to our providing  NHS hair removal in addition to providing hair removal for  BUPA private clients.

 

How laser hair removal works

 

Laser hair removal works on the principle of selective photothermolysis using the dark colour (melanin) in the unwanted hair shaft to selectively absorb the therapeutic light, whilst passing harmlessly through the surrounding skin tissue. The light is trapped in the hair shaft and heats and destroys the surrounding hair follicle.

 

Benefits of laser hair removal

 

There are many benefits of laser hair removal over and above other methods of unwanted hair removal. Laser hair removal can treat small or larger areas of hair growth quickly and effectively, there is usually very little skin reaction post-treatment, the unwanted hair growth does not need to be grown for treatment, in-growing hairs respond well to treatment, the number of sessions required is far less than traditional methods. We at Cristianos can prove results lasting in excess of 23 years.

 

Systems we use

 

The laser hair removal systems used at Cristianos are all clinically proven to be safe and effective. We use the Chromos 694 Ruby Laser, Lightsheer Diode Laser and the Energist Ultra Variable Pulsed Light. Having more than one hair removal system gives us the ability to treat a variety of hair and skin types. There is no price difference for the use of one hair removal system system over another, indeed your clinician may choose to use a selection of all three in order to produce the best results for any individual.

Our London clinicians are all registered nurses who have between them in excess of 60 years’ experience of conducting laser hair removal on all skin and hair types with Cristianos.

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.
