Laser Hair Removal With Mediostar at Silk Laser Studio


Velvety, silky skin. Immaculate, smooth – and hairless. An everlasting ideal of beauty that has been producing a wide variety of epilation methods for centuries. Yet none of them has ever shown long-term results. Only light can reduce hair growth permanently. As Asclepion Laser Technologies’ modern MeDioStar laser systems are specially designed for epilation, they can epilate large areas such as the back or the legs quickly and without skin irritation.

How it works: It requires only one short and virtually painless treatment session. For a back it does take less than 10 minutes. It is important to shave the targeted area beforehand. Permanent hair reduction, however, cannot be achieved after one treatment. The amount of treatment sessions required for complete permanent epilation depends on the area to be epilated and the individual skin type. On average, successful treatment requires between six and eight sessions at two to eight-week intervals. But the effort pays off: numerous clinical studies prove that once successfully removed, laser epilated hair will re-grow only very slowly and will be very thin. In order to remove this re-growth successfully, it is generally sufficient to repeat a single session once a year.

 What it does: Light penetrates the skin, is absorbed by melanin and converted into heat. This heat destroys hair roots as well as the so-called torus. The surrounding skin remains unaffected. Photo-epilation is only effective when hair is in its growth phase. Unfortunately, not all hair grows at the same time. In order to remove hair permanently and across larger areas, treatment has to be repeated. Hair reacts differently to light: People with dark hair – and a lot of melanin – experience best results. The removal of very fair hair requires individual assessment of the potential success of laser treatment.

How Laser Hair Removal Works

While treating hair, the energy radiated by the powerful diode laser is utilized to prevent the regrowth of the hair. To do this, the light needs to enter a few millimeters into the skin to reach the base of the hair. When it meets the melanin in the hair (darker shading), the light is absorbed, i.e. it is changed over into heat. The darker, thicker and denser the hair, the more heat is created. This heat harms the cells in charge of hair regrowth inside the hair and in the region around the hair. This guarantees an extreme diminishment in hair in the treated area.

Cutting Edge Light Based Treatments with Mediostar


The High Power Diode Lasers of the MeDioStar NeXT Family, represent the best technology for permanent hair reduction treatments. The wavelengths of the MeDioStar NeXT devices were picked so that the absorbtion of the light is high in melanin, yet low in water (essential substance in the skin), hence accommodating an exceptionally particular and safe treatment, with generally few side effects.

Furthermore, an additional treatment mode (SmoothPulse) can be utilized for bigger regions, which influences the laser pulse sensation to be practically unnoticeable, even for sensitive skinned patients. Because of the advanced design of the MeDioStar NeXT lasers, side effects of more than slight redness and swelling around dim hair are extremely uncommon.

The hair alternates between periods of growth (anagen) and no growth (telogen). The transition between the two periods is characterized by an interruption in bulb cell proliferation and by a widening of the terminal part of the hair root, which is anchored to the walls of the follicle; this intermediate phase is called catagen. In humans, the phases of different hair growth are not synchronized, i.e. each hair is in a different phase of growth. During a hair removal session, all the hairs are targeted, with no way of knowing in which phase of growth they are. That means that, in a certain area, only a specific percentage of hair reacts to the laser treatment, i.e. only hairs in anagen phase. Therefore, a series of laser sessions is always necessary. How many sessions are needed varies on a case by case basis and depends upon hair and skin type as well as on genetic predisposition. Normally, six to ten sessions per area are needed in order to reach hair reduction of up to 90%.

Since the laser beam targets the pigments contained in the hair, all pigmented hair will react very well to treatment. Hair from very dark to dark blond can be treated effectively, while white or grey hair will not respond to the treatment. In general, the darker the hair, the better the absorption and therefore the better the results.

The effectiveness of the treatment depends on the color, thickness and depth of the hair. The outcome of the treatment also depends on the hormone levels. To reach a high level of effectiveness, it is important to set up a treatment plan with your doctor based on your skin type and hair consistency.

The scientific literature shows that, 12 months following the end of treatment, the effects with latest generation lasers are very good. It can be microscopically proven that the hair follicles have definitely been damaged. Depending on genetics and hormonal changes fresh up treatments can be necessary.

First of all, the hair will be shaved in order to avoid the absorption of the light by the hair laying on the skin. After that, all dark spots on the skin (e.g. moles) are covered with a white pencil and a thin layer of transparent gel is applied to the skin. The handpiece of the laser is moved over the parts of the skin to be treated. The laser sends a light impulse, which creates a gentle prickling sensation. The treatment is very comfortable, thanks to the laser device’s skin-cooling system. In some special cases, it is possible to apply an anesthetic cream before treatment.

Following the treatment, a redness of the skin, strong sensations of warmth or wheals can occur. Overall, the side effects are similar to a light sun burn and disappear a few hours after the treatment. After a few hours, you may notice a darkening of the treated area and/or scab formation, which will vanish again after two to ten days. The hairs dissolve after between five days and two weeks, or fall out.

The treatments are normally performed with an interval of four to eight weeks, when definite hair growth is noticeable.

The treatment with MeDioStar NeXT is effective and safe on all skin types. As for every other medical treatment, undesired side effects after the treatment cannot be completely excluded. Lightening of the skin or hyper-pigmentation can temporarily occur and, in very few occasions, small scars may form. A slight erythema, particularly perifollicular erythema, can develop especially for dark, thick hair. In any case, all these effects are reversible and will disappear within a few weeks. For further information about possible side effects please ask your practitioner.

The therapist adjusts the settings according to the clients comfort levels. A sensation of warmth and prickling should be experienced during treatments.
