At AK Laser Hair Removal, based in Accrington, Lancashire, we offer the most advanced laser for hair removal. The Elysion high power diode laser uses a high energy laser to provide painless hair removal in an efficient procedure. We’re experts in hair removal, and the treatments we offer are able to treat all skin types. The laser delivers enough energy to destroy follicles without causing damage to the skin using the patented Crystal Freeze integrated cooling system. Call us today to book an appointment.
The Elysion delivers a specific wavelength of light that is selectively absorbed by the melanin that surrounds each hair follicle. This dark pigment conducts the heat from the laser to the base of the follicle and disables the hair growth, resulting in the hair falling out permanently.
Approximately 7 days after treatment the hairs fall out and you’ll be hair-free for up to 8 weeks, at which time you’d normally attend a follow-up appointment.
The key to successful laser hair removal is to deliver high energy to the follicle without damaging the skin. Most other lasers or IPL systems do not have a continuous feedback cooling system that maintains a stable, low skin temperature to protect the skin. As a result they must use lower energy with less effective results or they have a higher risk of side effects and discomfort.
The laser only treats hair in the growing phase that is visible on the skin surface. There are three phases of hair growth, so multiple treatments are required. Due to the advanced technology of Elysion, we’re able to deliver high energy without pain, and this means that we’re usually able to achieve maximum results in just six sessions.
Those who experience hormonal changes which may promote future hair growth may need more sessions.
Typically each treatment is 8 weeks apart.
