Laser hair removal

Starting from


Laser hair removal is a cosmetic procedure that uses a highly concentrated pulsating light beam to permanently remove hair from the body. 



Candidates for laser hair removal are typically individuals who want a long-term or permanent solution for removing unwanted hair. This procedure is suitable for almost all parts of the body, including the legs, arms, underarms, bikini area, back, and face.


Before laser hair removal treatment, it is recommended to avoid sun exposure or tanning beds for several weeks. It may also be advised to avoid waxing or plucking hair from the roots for at least four weeks before starting the treatment.


During the laser hair removal treatment, the laser beam is directed towards the pigment in the hair follicle. The heat generated by the laser damages the hair follicle, preventing further hair growth. The procedure can be slightly uncomfortable, but many people describe it as tolerable.


The results of laser hair removal can vary depending on the skin and hair type, as well as the treated body area. Most people notice a significant reduction in hair density in the treated area after several treatments. To achieve completely smooth skin, several treatments are usually required with intervals of a few weeks.


After the treatment, it is recommended to avoid sun exposure, as well as using sunscreen on the treated area. It is also important to follow the expert's instructions to reduce the risk of side effects such as redness or mild swelling.


What is needed before laser hair removal?

Do not pull hair with tweezers, wax or an electric epilator for a month before the treatment. They may be removed with depilatory cream and shaved. When arriving for the treatment, the hair should be brought to the level of the skin (by shaving or depilation cream). They must not be long because they absorb energy unnecessarily and can cause burns on the skin. It is not recommended to expose to the sun a month before the treatment or to go to the solarium, because our goal is for the skin to be as light as possible (absorbs less energy), so we can get better results.

Is laser hair removal a painful treatment?

The pain is comparable to that of stretching a rubber band against the skin, with the exception that the pain will not be the same on all parts of the body. In order to provide you with the most pleasant experience and feeling of satisfaction, from now on in our rich offer you can find the top device Zimmer Cryo 6 for cooling the skin during laser treatments. Unlike other cooling methods, such as contact cooling, cryogen spray and ice packs, this device cools the epidermal layer of the skin before, during and after the treatment itself without coming into contact with the laser beam.

How often should laser hair removal treatments be repeated?

On smaller regions such as the face, bikini area and armpits, treatments are performed every 3-6 weeks. On larger areas: legs, arms, men's back every 4-8 weeks. The minimum number of treatments is 5 to 7.

Are there any contraindications, or can everyone undergo laser epilation?

Before laser hair removal, it is necessary to consider the medical history and dermatological status in detail. Special attention should be paid to disorders of the hormonal system or taking hormone therapy, possibly taking other medications, chronic exposure to the sun or artificial sources of UV rays, and photosensitivity. Laser epilation is not performed in cases of some serious diseases and if the person uses drugs from the group of photosensitizing drugs.

Are there unwanted side effects of laser hair removal?

An expected and common side effect is redness of the skin of the treated area, which can last two to three days after epilation. Permanent epilation is not recommended on the eyelids and the area around the eyeball due to possible serious injuries.
