For many people unwanted body hair is a big problem.Final laser recovery is the solution.
Do you have unwanted  or excessive hair growth? Where the hairs are clearly visible, such as in the face, arms and legs, final laser therapy is the solution to your unwanted hair growth. It works fast and is very effective. With just a few painless and safe treatments  your unwanted hair growth will disappear .For centuries women have been looking for ways of removing body hair. We have descriptions of how women depilated their legs, armpits and pubic areas with a sugar emulsion that date back to the times of the Pharaohs.

In the seventies it was discovered that laser light, used for the treatment of veins, can cause a reduction of hair growth. Scientific research has shown that the diode laser gave the best treatment results for permanent hair removal. New at Beauty Clinic Lotus is de diode laser 808. This is the latest technology which is suitable for all skin types. Treatment with the diode laser 808 is almost painless.

The treatment method using the diode laser has been especially developed to be suitable for all skin types, including dark to very dark skin! Unlike the light used for IPL treatment, laser light has a one wavelength, so that with a higher output it can reach the roots which lie deeper in the skin as well. The most important characteristics of laser light are the unique wavelength of the light and the concentration of energy.

The lasers which are used for permanent hair removal use a type of light which is absorbed by the pigment below the hair follicle. It causes a selective heating of hair follicles deep within the skin. In a fraction of second the diode laser delivers its energy. The short energy release is just long enough to destroy the hair follicle and short enough to not cause damage to the surrounding skin structures and the upper layer of the skin. A unique cooling system in the treatment-head further protects the skin during the release of diode laser energy.

Hair grows in three phases:
*the anagen phase;
*the catagen phase;
*the telogen phase.

The anagen phase is the growth phase. During the catagen phase growth and pigment formation
stop and the hair is just pushed out of the hair follicle. The telogen phase is the rest phase. Only
visible growing hair can be treated., this is hair in the anagen phase. Loose, dormant and not yet
visible hair doesn’t absorb enough light and cannot be treated effectively. Therefore you will need
several treatments. For the best result you will need on average 5 tot 8 treatments.
You will see the effect after 2 to 4 weeks – some of the treated hair will start to loosen and hairless
areas will develop. You will know the treatment is effective in your case and that it makes sense to
continue.
You mustn’t sunbathe or use a sun bed 4 weeks before and during your treatment. If sun exposure is
unavoidable, we recommend you use sunblock with a factor higher than 30 SPF.
To prevent your skin from defend itself against light by making a lot of pigment (hyper-
pigmentation) after your treatment, we recommend you wait a month before sunbathing or going
to a sun bed. In summer or doing winter sports you should therefore cover your skin with clothes
or use a sunblock of more than 30 SPF if exposing treated areas to sunlight is unavoidable. In
addition we recommend you don’t use self-tanning lotions from 2 weeks before until 1 week after
the treatment, as they contain a substance which reacts to light. The hair follicles which have been

effectively treated can never produce hair again. You can count on an estimated hair reduction 80%
to 90%. Expecting 100% smoothness isn’t realistic. Unfortunately, there are hair follicles under our
skin which are dormant or which only produce a light down. They can activate because of hormonal
changes in a later stage of our lives, for example during pregnancy, menopause, use of medication
(antibiotics, hormone preparations).
It does mean you will stay free of unwanted body hair for many years. It could happen to some
hair comes back, but never with the same density. In that case you just need a small maintenance treatment.

Treating very dark skin is absolutely possible. With very dark skin (black skin) we first do a test
with a very mild setting on an inconspicuous place of the body, for example the back of an armpit.
If the skin takes the treatment well we can do a second test with a higher setting. The part we are
testing will be shaved beforehand.
At least 4 to 6 weeks before the treatment you will need to stop waxing or epilating, because the
hair is needed in order to conduct the effective heat inwards. During the treatment you also mustn’t
epilate or or wax. Shaving, however, is permitted.
On the day of the treatment or one day beforehand you will need to shave the target area, preferably
with a disposable laser. Do not use razors a shaving systems which pull the hair out a small bit
before, because the hair will sink back into the skin afterwards and therefore cannot be used to
conduct the heat.
Only the for the first appointment you should come unshaven, so that we judge the target area and
can make a photo in order to compare it to the end result. However, if you come unshaven after the
first appointment we will lose a lot of times shaving. You will receive shaving instructions in due
course.
It is possible that your health care insurer will cover treatments in the facial area. Your health
insurer can tell you exactly how much is covered. Most health insurers cover a large part of the cost
of facial hair removal.
Don’t hesitate to make an appointment for a consultation, this is free. A test flash is free as well.
