Removal of unwanted body and facial hair
Pathological body or facial hair is not a purely cosmetic problem, but also a medical one. In particular, it can lead to inhibitions in the ability to make contact, psychological disorders or professional difficulties.
Hair removal by shaving, plucking, waxing, epilation or chemical depilatories is painful, the success usually frustrating and short-lived.
In order to achieve permanent and gentle hair removal, our practice uses the Gentle-YAG-Laser . This is a long-pulsed neodymium YAG laser in which the laser energy (light beam) is converted into heat that destroys the hair follicle. The surrounding sensitive skin is spared.
The number of treatments required varies depending on the patient and averages 6-10 treatments to achieve optimal results.
Is the treatment painful?
Most patients experience the laser treatment as a burning sensation on the skin, which can be tolerated well. In particularly sensitive areas of the skin, it may be necessary to take painkillers beforehand.
The costs are usually covered by private health insurance companies, but not, or only in exceptional cases, by statutory health insurance companies.
