How does laser remove the hair?
Laser hair removal #tuliplaserclinic works by targeting and breaking down the melanin (the pigment that gives hair its color) in a hair follicle, which makes that hair fall out. Therefore, the process works best to remove coarse and dark hair. It may not work or won’t work at all to remove red, blond, gray, or white hair.
Go for a consultation.
A consultation with your practitioner before your first treatment will allow the clinic to assess your health. They will also administer a patch test to determine whether you are a good candidate for the treatment, and which process will work best based on your skin and hair type. Laser hair removal works poor for women with polycystic ovaries disease or other hormonal problems. If you are taking any medications, especially new ones or a course of antibiotics, talk to your practitioner before undergoing laser hair removal. Some medications can cause photosensitivity, which could lead to a bad burn from the treatment.
What should I expect during a hair removal consultation?
You will need to shave the area prior to the visit. Once you are in the treatment room, your Laser practitioner will explain everything to you about the laser and what to expect during the treatments. A photo of the area will be taken (if this is Brazilian, only the thigh will be in the shot and cleared by you to be filed). Please discuss with your Laser Technician, if you have more questions or unique situations in your consultation session

Is laser hair removal painful?
During laser hair removal, patients report a snapping feeling. For the most part, the ice that comes out while the laser is on will cover the laser sensation. A small number of patients report minor itching, redness or swelling in the treatment area that subsides within a few days.
How does the laser target the hair for removal?
Lasers use light pulses to heat the hair follicle and destroy its roots without damaging the surrounding tissue or skin. By targeting the follicle, laser hair removal treatments inhibit any future hair growth. The goal of laser hair removal is significant permanent reduction in the number of hairs in the treatment area. You should be aware, however, that while laser hair removal slows down the rate of re-growth, it does not immediately remove all of the hair; and you should not expect all the hair to be immediately "burned off" or removed. Some temporary hair growth may occur after the treatments. This hair may fall out after several weeks, and less hair will grow back after each treatment. Typically, the re-growth is less coarse and lighter in color. Shaving or trimming can be used to remove hair that grows back. There have been rare cases, mostly with patients wh
