Aesthetic and plastic surgeon Doctor Roman Merle carries out laser hair removal in Antibes. This medical treatment provides an effective and definitive alternative to classic hair removal techniques.

When is laser hair removal appropriate ?

Laser depilation is effective to permanently remove unwanted hair from specific areas of the body, avoiding the issues like in-growing hairs and inflammation of the skin often associated with classic hair removal techniques. After a laser depilation, the skin feels smooth and clean.

It is a technique that is suitable for both men and women and can be used on any area of the body and with any skin type. It is not effective, however, on grey or blond hair.

Laser hair removal

A laser depilation session will only get rid of visible hairs that are in growth phase. Therefore several sessions are usually necessary to be totally effective. A typical hair removal programme will run over 5 to 7 weeks. Dr Merle will vary this depending on re-growth, the area to be treated and the initial density of hair present. A laser depilation session causes little, if any, pain.

What to expect following a laser depilation session ?

Soit directement derrière la glande, en avant des muscles pectoraux
(positionnement prémusculaire)

Soit plus profondément, en arrière des muscles pectoraux
(positionnement rétromusculaire)

After the session you should wait before going in the sun, to avoid the appearance of any brown marks. Between sessions it is important to no longer use waxing but only to use a razor on the area(s) being treated.
