Fine hair can be troublesome to get rid of since laser hair removal machines do not easily target it. Moreover, epilation techniques, such as waxing or shaving, might risk hair growth stimulation and home bleaching techniques can be risky.
Laser hair bleaching offers an effective remedy for unwanted fine hair that cannot be easily spotted by other hair removal lasers. This non-permanent solution targets the finest hair with immaculate precision, and then bleaches it, without damaging the surrounding tissue.
How does it work?
The Q-switch Nd: YAG, Revlite ®/Medlite ® Laser Technology that relies on the EO Q-switched Laser Technology, can target the finest hair with more precision than any other laser machine. It is capable of bleaching the melanin found in fine hair shaft making it lighter to an extent where it is almost invisible.
Is it suitable for me?
Q-switch Nd: YAG laser’s efficacy allows it to bleach hair almost anywhere it grows regardless of the skin’s color and type. Excluding the area surrounding the eyes, it is safe to use the Q-switch technology to treat facial and body hair, even hair that grows in the most sensitive areas, such as the upper lip or bikini. Nevertheless, baby hair present on a tattoo can’t be bleached using laser because the tattoo might be removed.
Is it safe?
Laser hair bleaching poses little to no risk at all when performed by Silkor’s skilled therapists using A+ class machines. After the session, you only might witness mild redness.
Is it painful?
The treatment is superficial and takes no more than 30 minutes. It is relatively painless, yet some people usually report a slight tingling sensation. However, a topical anesthetic can be applied if required.
What should I expect?
During the session, the baby hair is bleached and becomes invisible; 10 to 15 days later, the treated hair will fall out. It will then grow back after 4 - 6 weeks, having the same texture and quality, only lighter in color. The procedure can be performed every 4 to 6 weeks or when needed.
