Procedure and instructions
How does the treatment proceed?
The handpiece of the laser is placed on the area to be treated and a targeted laser pulse is emitted. Often a slight pricking or tingling sensation is felt, which is however completely normal and unproblematic. A slight reddening after treatment is also harmless. This should subside after 2-3 days at the latest.
Is it possible to have a sunbath before the treatment?
The melanin of the skin reacts to the light impulses. Since melanin is also responsible for the tan after sunbathing, intensive sunbathing or solarium sessions should generally be avoided during the treatment in order to prevent unnecessary skin irritation. The period of treatment is approximately 3 – 4 weeks. Alternatively, you can protect yourself from the sun with sunscreen SPF 50.
You should also refrain from epilating or bleaching your hair 4 weeks before the treatment. In addition, the hair should also not be plucked or waxed. This is due to the light traveling along the hair to reach the hair root. If the hair is completely removed and not just trimmed down to the skin, the light cannot reach the hair root.
In order to optimally prepare the skin for the upcoming treatment, you should shave the affected areas of the body one day beforehand. If you are having a treatment in the facial area, you should remove your make-up beforehand and clean the skin thoroughly.
Intensive sunbathing should also be avoided after treatment with the neodymium YAG laser. This applies to the entire treatment period as well as after each individual treatment. After each treatment, the skin can react very sensitively to sunlight. In the worst case, pigmentation disorders may occur.
