IPL is a light treatment with diffused light that is sent to the skin via a lamp equipped with a filter. It is an old-fashioned treatment that can most be likened to a waxing that gives a longer effect. IPL very rarely gives a permanent result. There is also a high risk of burns and it hurts to be treated. It is often attracted with anesthetic ointments, which only increases the risk of injury. “IPL laser” does not exist, IPL is a lamp and not a laser.

LASERS are available in several designs. For hair removal, work with a red laser. Alexandrite, Diode Lasers and Yaglases. Alexandrite works well on skin type 1-2, i.e. very bright people. Diode and Yag are best and work well on skin types 1-4. For skin type 5-6, Yag is preferred. The very latest Diode lasers are equipped with all 3 wavelengths 755, 808 and 1064nm in one and the same handset, which provides excellent conditions for all skin types and hair plants. They can handle all skin types 1-6.

A laser has a concentrated light that penetrates into the skin with precision and effectively kills the hair follicle with minimal risk of damage. Built-in cooling systems protect the skin and reduce discomfort. A laser treatment can be felt but should not hurt. Book a free consultation and we will tell you how we can help you and you can also do a test treatment so that you know both how the laser works and how it feels.

No, not with us. Our treatments are done with a triple laser with super cooling and are completely painless!

There are other genuine lasers on the market that unfortunately can still hurt quite a bit. Ask to know how it feels before you book a treatment with someone else. All reputable clinics offer you a free consultation.

*Refrain from sunbathing
-You should refrain from sunbathing 2-4 weeks before and after treatment. Tanned skin reduces the effect of the treatment and increases the risk of pigment changes (pigment changes after treatment are very unusual, however, and are only seen in less than 1% of patients). Also do not use brown without sun products.

*Shave before the visit
-Please refrain from shaving for a week before the visit and let the area rest to avoid irritated skin. The hair should then be shaved 24-48 hours before the treatment as a very short growth gives the best effect.

*Do not wax, pluck or bleach your hair
-Do not grow, pluck or bleach your hair four weeks before your treatment. The laser only works on hair follicles that contain hair. It does not help to dye the hair to get a better result, it is the color towards and at the hair root that affects the result.

*Come freshly showered & without creams
-Come freshly showered and use NO creams, deodorants etc on the body.

It is required that the hair root is heated up to 72 degrees for it to die and then not be able to let a new hair grow up. You usually count on 6-12 treatments to achieve optimal effect. The reason for this is that the laser only accesses the active hair follicles that are in the plant phase. Resting hair follicles lack hairs with pigment and are therefore not heated by the laser pulses. Hair removal can take anywhere from a few minutes to an hour depending on which body areas are being treated. A whole body takes up to 3 hours.

It should pass 4-12 weeks between the treatments because you have to wait until the dormant hair follicles become active again, it differs depending on where on the body the hair is removed. Some patients may find that after a few treatments they suddenly have more hair. The explanation is that the remaining dormant hair follicles are “activated” by the laser faster than they would have done without treatment. This is only positive – then we will more easily get rid of these “newly activated” hair follicles at the next treatment! Skin areas without hair or with only “scabs” should not be treated as you can instead trigger hair growth.

After a visit with us at A Beauty Light, you will hardly notice that you have been on a laser treatment. You may have some redness. A cooling Aloe Vera cream can then feel good. Avoid scratching / tearing the skin if it is irritated.

To minimize the risk of pigment changes on the skin after laser treatment, it is important to protect treated body parts from the sun. This is especially true in the first weeks after treatment. Immediately after a treatment, you can otherwise live as usual.

In some extreme exceptional cases with older lasers (this does not apply to our laser), occasional water blisters are seen that disappear spontaneously within 48 hours. For more information on possible side effects, read the section on risks further down the page.

It is an expression of how much hair you choose to remove intimately.

Bikini is when you remove along the bikini line so that no hair is visible when using a panty without a string.

Brazilian is when you remove almost everything both on the front and between the buttocks.

Hollywood is called when you remove just about all hair intimately.

We remove Brazilian / Hollywood hair on both women and men. It can be difficult to find clinics that perform laser on men intimately. With us, however, everyone is welcome!

 

The laser significantly reduces hair growth, but you will not be 100% hair-free. Most people experience that the hair disappears and that only soft hair and possibly individual hairs remain. It differs from person to person.

The conditions are different. Light skin, dark hairs are optimal on paper but there are more factors that affect. Hormones can bring dormant hair follicles to life. Some may need to “maintain” with treatments over the years to “kill” newly awakened hair follicles. A dead hair follicle is and remains dead. However, dormant hair follicles can come to life.

Plant phases

Hair removal must take some time. Since we can not speed up the different growth phases, we have to adapt to the resting time of the hairs (Katagen). Only hair in the active plant phase (Anagen) can be removed. Hair removal can take anywhere between 5-18 months depending on the area being treated. Armpits and bikinis / intimate are usually easiest and fastest. The face usually requires more treatments as the hairs are a little thinner. It is also common for the face to require maintenance treatments as we have a lot of hair follicles there that can come to life. Legs and back usually take the longest time as the rest period is very long in these areas.

Laser hair removal is not a quick fix to get nice legs for spring. It takes a bit of planning but many of me think it’s worth it, but I want to emphasize that the results can vary from person to person. It is mostly about how many treatments you need to be satisfied. Some need only 2-4 treatments while others may need 10-12 treatments (eg very light straws). However, the vast majority are very satisfied and the feeling is usually; -Why did I not do this a long time ago?

Of course! It is possible to book a FREE consultation. You get to do a test treatment so that you know both how the laser works and how it feels. Feel free to call or text and you will get answers to your questions and get to know exactly your conditions. All reputable clinics offer free consultation.

No. There are several reasons why some should not be laser treated.

White straws do not disappear with a laser. Even gray and red-blond hair is difficult with laser. Very thin, fine straws can also be difficult to remove. The hair must contain more pigment than your skin in order to be removed. To remove straws without pigment (white / light gray / red blonde), diametrics is required, ie you use a needle that burns each individual hair follicle separately. On the other hand, you can usually hold back the hair growth by lasering, but this then requires that you continuously go on treatments.

If you have very dark skin or are very tanned, diode lasers are not optimal even if it is possible. A rule of thumb is that there should be a clear color difference between the hairs you want to remove and the surrounding skin. With the new Diode lasers which, like our laser, have all three wavelengths in the same handset, you usually get a good result even on dark skin.

Even with certain medications that, for example, make you sensitive to light and for certain diseases, treatment should not be carried out. Tertracycline, another antibiotic, cortisone and Roaccutane, are some examples. We go through this in a health declaration before your treatment.

No. It is not possible to remove hair in places where you have a tattoo as the laser works against color and thus will damage both the skin and the tattoo.

No. Pregnant women must wait until after pregnancy.

We apply an age limit of 18 years. With the parent’s approval, however, treatment can also be done on minors.

No. We do not laser on:

– Mucous membranes ex. inside the nose
– On the head (neck and face go well)
– 2cm from the eyes (between and over eyebrows goes well)

Yes, it works well if you use a tampon or menstrual cup!

No, this type of laser is not dangerous for the intimate parts and does not affect the function of the testicles.

If you visit a serious clinic with education and knowledge, the risks of laser hair removal are minimal. However, you should be aware that radiation from lasers can cause damage and complications if performed incorrectly.

Eye injuries
During treatment, both the patient and the therapist must wear goggles adapted for the purpose. Treatment closer than 2 cm from the eyes may only be performed under the responsibility of a licensed physician.
Burns
NEVER use anesthetic ointment or similar. You must be able to feel if the therapist is using too much strength.
Burns can cause both infections and scarring. The darker your skin, the greater the risk of burns. The risk of injury can also increase if you use certain medicines or tan-without-sun products at the same time.
Hyper- and hypnopigmentation
Laser can cause disorders in the pigmentation, which means that the treated skin becomes darker or lighter than the surrounding skin. This is mostly avoided by following the recommendations not to expose the skin to sun both before and after laser treatment. It is also important not to laser if you are taking medicines that make you sensitive to light. And of course that the practitioner does not burn you during the treatment.

The Swedish Radiation Protection Authority

Today, there are very few requirements and rules for cosmetic laser treatments. The market is not regulated and no permits are required. Therefore, it is extra important that you as a customer are careful and check that the therapist has the required knowledge. All reputable clinics offer a free consultation. Then you get the opportunity to both ask questions, test how the laser feels and at the same time get an idea of ​​whether you feel safe with the clinic and the therapist.

Welcome to book a free consultation with us at A Beauty Light for laser hair removal in Stockholm.

Here are some of the requirements and rules that exist today:
