Excessive or unwanted hair is a problem faced by both women and men. Almost everyone has experience in using different methods, unfortunately not effective and durable enough – shaving, waxing, electro-epilation, as well as non-professional epilators using flash lamps with questionable results.

Laser hair removal is a method that has proven its undeniable effectiveness. Quality laser hair removal surpasses all methods, offering a medically proven DURABLE solution to remove unwanted hair. Moreover – this method is faster, more painless, more comfortable. The result is visible after the first procedure, and after a few problems it is a thing of the past. The skin is smooth and soft.

What is laser hair removal?

The principle on which laser hair removal is based is called “selective photothermolysis”, performed by high-precision technology – laser / “LASER” – stimulated emission of high energy light. The laser produces light concentrated in a thin, coherent optical beam with a single wavelength, ie. with particles moving in one direction. The effect of these rays is precisely measured and the radiated energy remains stable. The wavelength allows light to be absorbed by the pigment melanin, a component of the hair follicle, rather than the surrounding tissue, by focusing the laser energy on a specific target. Energy, in turn, thermally destroys the follicle.

Types of lasers for hair removal

Choosing the right type of laser from proven manufacturers of this type of equipment is essential to achieve good results from the laser hair removal procedure. There are several types of laser systems that deliver light with a specific wavelength and pulse duration to absorb melanin from the follicle. The wavelength and pulse duration play a decisive role in the accuracy of the method and the efficiency of the procedure.

It is the first laser in history. Its possibilities are quite limited to the treatment of dark hair and light skin (phototypes 1 and 2).

The alexandrite laser is the “heavy artillery” in laser hair removal – the smallest number of necessary procedures and unattainable end result – up to 97%. Since its inception in the United States in 1997. and its patenting in 2001. from the American company Cynosure for laser hair removal, this type of laser has established itself as the most widely used type of laser and synonymous with the procedure “laser hair removal” in the largest markets for aesthetic services in the world – USA, UK, Italy, Germany and others.

The new generation of efficient alexandrite lasers achieves the shortest time for a single procedure, as there is no need to apply gel before the procedure and clean up after it. This is the only laser that achieves successful results in treating even light, fine and thin hair. It is suitable for procedures on all skin types, except dark skin and tanned skin (1-4 phototype). Due to the specific wavelength of 755nm, which is mostly absorbed by melanin in the hair, the Alexandrite laser manages to achieve the best results at the lowest energy levels, which is why the procedures with it are the most painless.

Its wavelength corresponds to the infrared zone of the light spectrum, emits stable energy. An advantage of Nd: Yag is the ability to identify the difference in the concentration of melanin in the hair and skin, which makes it effective for all skin types, but ineffective for fine and thin hair. It also successfully treats darker skin (phototypes 5 and 6). It is used for laser hair removal most often when the Alexandrite laser is not able to treat the area – for the darkest skin types – V and VI phototype. A disadvantage is the more painful sensation during the procedures.

The diode laser is generally different from all others, it consists of diodes or semiconductors, which in combination provide the laser light source. This system is specially designed and aimed at the mass consumer – most often beauty centers. These laser systems are characterized by lower power, do not require medical training of the operator, which makes the procedures very safe and inefficient. Diode lasers cover all skin types (1 to 6). It is effective in treating hard and thick hair (usually the first laser hair removal procedures) and ineffective in facial areas and fine and thin hair.

Number and frequency of laser hair removal procedures

Hair growth is cyclical and asynchronous. There are 3 different phases of growth – anagen, catagen and telogen. Laser hair removal destroys the follicle only when it is in the active phase of growth (anagen). Therefore, in order to achieve a lasting and good effect and to treat all the hair in this phase (anagen), it is necessary to perform several procedures. They are performed every 3 to 5 weeks. Their number is individual.

Even after the first procedure, a significant number of hair follicles are destroyed and the rest atrophy. In addition to reducing hair, after the laser hair removal procedure the hair becomes thinner and less pigmented (light) and significantly slows down its growth. With each procedure, the growth is slower, which leads to a gradual increase in the period between laser hair removal procedures until the maintenance procedures are reached once or twice a year.

It is extremely important to observe the intervals between procedures so that the maximum number of hairs can be treated in their active phase. A longer period between procedures would increase the number of procedures required for permanent hair removal between 6-8 procedures for areas of the body and 8-10 procedures for the face.

Who does laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is a medical procedure and when working with Alexandrite and Nd: YAG lasers is performed by a trained and experienced medical professional. In Skin Line clinics in Varna and Sofia, the laser hair removal procedure is performed only by medical professionals.

Before and after the procedure

  • the hair should not be pulled out with tweezers, colo-mask, epilator, etc. 2-3 weeks before the first procedure

  • the hair should be shaved the day before for the body areas or shortened with scissors for the facial areas, so that in both cases there is a length of about 1 mm during the procedure. 

  • a few days after the procedure you will notice hair in the treated area. This is NOT growth, but a consequence of the procedure and should NOT be treated. The hairs will fall out on their own in a few days.

  • during the entire period between procedures it is recommended not to remove hair, except the day before the procedure using a razor, trimmer or depilatory cream for body areas and scissors for facial areas. DO NOT use tweezers, epilators or wax masks between laser hair removal procedures, as this impairs hair growth and leads to ineffective procedures.

  • to use sunscreen with maximum protection factor (SPF 50+) after the procedure every few hours for at least 2 weeks

  • to avoid sun exposure, the use of solarium, self-tanning products, whitening, peeling products, acids, drugs that increase photosensitivity

Adverse reactions

  • Sometimes, immediately after the procedure, there may be a slight redness, swelling or burning in the treated area, which lasts from a few minutes to hours or 1-2 days and does not require specific treatment.

  • Superficials burns

  • Temporary hypo- or hyperpigmentation may occur, which is temporary and does not require specific treatment


  • Pregnancy and lactation

  • Herpes infection

  • Epilepsy

  • Vitiligo

  • Open wounds, infections

  • Use of photosensitizing drugs

  • Conducted radiotherapy in the treated area

Frequently Asked Questions

The main difference between laser hair removal and photoepilation used to reduce hair is mainly in the technology – both produce a light beam, which in laser systems is concentrated and emits the exact wavelength needed to treat hair, while photoepilation produces a wide range of wavelengths that are less efficient.

Laser systems work with energy that is many times stronger than that of photoepilation. Because heat is absorbed by the follicle, the risk of burns is minimal in laser hair removal, while in photoepilation there is a risk of light being absorbed by the surrounding tissue, leading to heating of the skin pigment and burning of darker skin types.

Unwanted or excessive hair is a problem that affects both women and men. Sadly, most known methods for hair removal – shaving, waxing, electroepilation, and nonprofessional photoepilation or laser devices for home use do not offer a lasting solution to the problem.

Professional laser hair removal is better than all other methods, as it offers a LASTING solution for hair removal.

  • It makes the skin smooth and soft
  • It prevents ingrown hairs
  • It saves time from frequent procedures of shaving, waxing, epilating, and others
  • Creates convenience and comfort
  • Allows for upkeep of good hygiene.

It is extremely important to know that laser hair removal is a medical method that must be performed by a trained and qualified medical professional. In this regard, make sure that the specialist who performs the procedure has the necessary knowledge and experience before you trust him. In the hands of a competent specialist and following his instructions before and after the procedure, and the possible risks of laser hair removal will be minimized – discomfort, redness, swelling.

With older laser devices and photoepilation, the procedures were more painful, which necessitated the application of an analgesic gel in more sensitive patients. With the advancement of laser technology, this is no longer necessary. In them, laser hair removal is accompanied by minimal discomfort. Most patients experience a slight burning sensation. Usually, in addition to / built into the laser system, there is also a cooling system, which contributes to a more comfortable procedure. Extremely fast modern laser systems and respectively fast procedures make the procedures imperceptible and accessible even for people with extremely low pain thresholds.

Until a lasting effect of laser hair removal is achieved, the procedures should be performed every 3 to 5 weeks, and after achieving the final result – permanent hair reduction, maintenance procedures are performed – once or twice a year. Observance of the time interval between the individual laser hair removal procedures also affects the total number of procedures – extending the interval may increase the number of required laser hair removal procedures.

Laser hair removal destroys the hair follicle only when it is in the growth phase (anagen phase). In a given period, up to 20-25% of the hairs are in this active phase. Therefore, it is necessary to perform several procedures, the number of which is individual. Even after the first procedure, a significant number of hair follicles are destroyed, but an average of 5-6 procedures are needed for a lasting result. Areas such as the pubis and armpits and other areas of the body are affected more quickly, while fine facial hair requires more procedures.

Before the procedure, the area needs to be prepared depending on the type of laser system – in laser systems such as Alexandrite and Nd: Yag lasers the area should be shaved the day before or on the day of the procedure. hair about 1- maximum 2 mm. Regardless of the type of laser system used, 2-3 weeks before the laser hair removal procedure, the hair should not be plucked (removed with tweezers, wax mask or epilator) to allow the hair follicle to be treated during the procedure.

2 weeks before laser hair removal, the area should not be actively exposed to sunlight or a tanning bed to avoid redness or burns.

The duration of the laser hair removal procedure depends primarily on the size of the treated area – usually from a few minutes for small areas of the face to 40-60 minutes for larger areas of the body – legs, back, etc. The type of laser and the experience of the specialist performing the procedure can also reduce or increase the duration of laser hair removal.

The laser hair removal procedure is performed in a room specially designed for laser procedures and takes place in 10 steps:

  1. The results, the skin reaction and the satisfaction from the previous procedure are discussed

  2. Fill in a form from the patient to make sure that he has not been exposed to the sun, tanning beds and has not taken medications that increase the photosensitivity of his skin.

  3. It is checked whether the area to be treated is clean-shaven or has the required length of hair according to the requirements of the laser system and whether there is a tan

  4. The area to be treated is cleaned and disinfected

  5. The patient lies down and puts on safety goggles, which are mandatory for everyone in the room

  6. The parameters of the laser system are set, which take into account the skin tone and data from the previous procedure – parameters used, skin reaction, satisfaction with the result

  7. The laser treats the desired area step by step, and the specialist carefully monitors the reaction of the skin during laser hair removal.

  8. In case the skin is more sensitive, a soothing cream is applied, and for the facial areas – a mandatory sunscreen with a maximum protection factor SPF 50+

  9. The parameters of the procedure are saved

  10. The laser is cleaned and disinfected before the procedure

No! Laser hair removal does not require recovery time. Sometimes, immediately after laser hair removal, a slight redness, burning or slight swelling may occur in the treated area, which disappears from a few minutes to 1-2 hours, in rare cases more if the skin is more sensitive, which does not require specific treatment. Apart from this, most people return to their daily activities immediately after laser hair removal.

Skin care after a laser hair removal procedure is extremely important. About a week after the procedure, it is recommended not to expose the treated area to strong and prolonged sunlight or solarium. It is mandatory to apply a sunscreen with a maximum protection factor SPF 50+ on exposed areas in direct sunlight for a period of 2 weeks after the procedure. This eliminates the risk of pigmentation after the laser hair removal procedure.

The results of laser hair removal are individual for each patient. The color and thickness of the hair, the treated area, the type of laser and the type of skin affect the results of laser hair removal. Most often you can expect a maximum of 20-25% hair reduction after the first procedure – the hair treated in the growth phase is killed and usually falls out between 7 and 20 days after the procedure. In addition to reducing hair growth, there is a significant slowdown in hair growth.

Hair growth slows down significantly between treatments and decreases with each hair loss. Treatment of hair between procedures is not recommended, but if it is performed it should be by shaving, depilatory cream or other method that reduces the length of the hair to the level of the skin. The application of methods that remove hair with the hair follicle is excluded – wax mask, epilator, plucking with tweezers, etc. As the procedures progress and hair growth slows down, removal will only be necessary before the laser hair removal procedure itself, due to the requirements of laser hair length systems.

Laser hair removal, compared to all other methods, is the only one that offers a PERMANENT solution for removing unwanted hair, but not guaranteed in all patients and 100%. The final result and the number of necessary procedures are influenced by factors such as age, hair color and thickness, skin type, hormonal balance, medication and more. Most patients achieve a permanent reduction or even disappearance of hair, which can last 1-5 years if 1-2 maintenance procedures are performed annually. In addition to ensuring the achieved result, the maintenance procedures affect the new fine hairs, which due to the physiology of hair growth appear to replace the old ones.

Although price is essential when choosing a laser hair removal clinic / center, it should not be a leading factor! Here is the place to mention the dubious laser and photoepilation sites with misleading advertisements for “quality equipment”, “low prices” and “good specialists” who mislead people by leaving them with wrong impressions and unrealistic expectations that compromise the laser hair removal procedure. The most important thing is to be satisfied with the quality of service and the effect of the procedure. In this regard, trust a clinic / center with a tradition of laser hair removal and specialists with medical education who have proven their competence.
