"Frequent shaving, the use of depilatory machines, wax and depilatory creams yield moderate results, affect the quality of the hair and leave their marks on our skin, without offering a definitive solution. At Cosmetic Derma Medicine, as a specialized model clinic of Dermatology and Plastic Surgery, we restore the lost self-confidence to women and men of all ages thanks to the latest generation of Laser Face and Body Hair Removal systems, Candela GentleLase and Candela GentleLase PRO with Alexandrite Laser and ND-YAG Laser" says Dermatologist - Venereologist Dr. Konstantina Mamali.Doctor's Profile

Laser Hair Removal for Face and Body
Before - After Results
The results of Laser Hair Removal for face and body are visible from the very first session as unwanted hair growth is significantly reduced and the hair becomes more soft and lighter. The results depend on the laser system used, the color and quality of the hair and skin, the area of application and whether or not the patient has hormonal disorders.
The desired result is achieved faster in women than in men due to a lower concentration of circulating androgens in the blood and in some areas even complete elimination of hair growth can be achieved even in 6 sessions.
Laser Hair Removal for Face and Body
How many sessions are required to complete Laser Body Hair Removal?
Laser Alexandrite sessions are repeated approximately every 1-2 months. In hormone-dependent areas such as the face, chest and abdomen, hair reduction is slower compared to bikini, legs and arms for Laser Hair Removal which require a small number of sessions and can even achieve complete hair elimination even in 6 sessions.
In cases where hormonal disorders co-exist, the only permanent hair removal solution is laser body hair removal with alexandrite laser hair removal.
What to expect before and after each Body Laser Hair Removal session?
Before each Laser Body Hair Removal session, the hair in the area needs to be trimmed, as the laser targets the root and not the free hair shaft. The area is scanned with a 2 cm diameter laser beam while the system simultaneously emits cool air, making the treatment easy and painless. After the Laser Body Hair Removal session:
- A temporary erythema may occur which resolves over the next few hours.
- Moisturizing creams recommended by the dermatologist and sunscreen should be used to protect the area from the sun.
Thanks to the advanced technology of the Candela GentleLase & Candela GentleLase PRO system with Alexandrite Laser, waxing is safe in the summer months as well as on lightly tanned skin.
What are the advantages of Laser Body Hair Removal?
- Laser Body Hair Removal is the only scientifically accepted method of getting rid of unwanted hair and the use of Laser is done exclusively in surgeries and medical clinics with the presence of a dermatologist or plastic surgeon.
- Laser Body Hair Removal promises fast and painless results. Depending on the area of application, it is possible to achieve complete hair removal in less than 6 sessions.
- Unlike conventional hair removal methods, responsible for folliculitis, aggravation of spider veins, hair growth and skin sagging, Laser Body Hair Removal does not affect the pores and structure of the skin.
How is Laser Body Hair Removal with Laser Alexandrite applied?
Before the laser hair removal session the hairs should be 2-3 mm long. The area to be depilated is drawn with a white pencil and then the whole area is scanned with the special head equipped with the Alexandrite laser. Thanks to the latest generation machines with two cooling systems, the session is practically painless, very fast and completely tolerable.
Are there any side effects from Laser Body Hair Removal?
Adverse effects from Laser hair removal with Alexandrite laser occur only when the instructions are not followed by the patient or when the treatment is not performed by an experienced operator under the supervision of a dermatologist. Potential side effects are completely reversible and include transient erythema and periorbital edema that resolves a few hours after treatment.
More persistent erythema or irritation may require more time to recover. Hypochromia or hyperpigmentation may occur if the patient is exposed to the sun immediately after treatment without sun protection.
Can Laser Hair Removal be done during pregnancy and breastfeeding?
Laser hair removal can be done safely both during pregnancy and breastfeeding. During pregnancy, sensitive areas such as the bikini and abdomen are avoided for precautionary reasons.
What is the difference between laser hair removal with Laser Alexandrite and laser hair removal with photolysis or IPL?
Laser hair removal with Alexandrite laser is the only medical method of hair removal that can guarantee a definitive treatment of unwanted hair with a smaller number of sessions and better results. Photolysis or IPL is a lower power technology requires a very large number of sessions and does not lead to permanent elimination of hair growth.
Can I have Laser Hair Removal if I suffer from psoriasis or vitiligo?
In cases of psoriasis or vitiligo, only the Alexandrite laser is indicated as it is the most atraumatic way of hair removal, eliminating the risk of spreading the above diseases due to the koebner effect.
In what other cases is the Alexandrite Laser applied?

- Removal of dark tattoos, using the most special Alexandrite Laser of the Q Switch type.
- Treatment of melanchromatic skin lesions such as blemishes, spots, freckles, melanchromatic seborrheic hyperkeratosis and melasma.
