What are the differences between this technology and the electrolysis?

The FDA ( US Food and Drug Administration) approved several lasers for the removal of hair (such as diodes, pulsed light), by basing itself on clinical trials which demonstrate a permanent reduction of the hairs and this two years later. The treatment by removal of hair with the laser is more practical, less comfortable, more effective and is probably a less expensive method for a permanent removal of hair.

Is it painful?

  • The traditional removal of hair as well as the laser sometimes hurt. The "electro-optics" energy is almost painless and causes a temporary light sensation of itching.

What do you need to respect before the treatment?

  • The prolonged exposure to the sun or the solarium must be avoided three weeks before and after the session. Any removal of hair with wax or eletric device should be avoided until two weeks before the treatment. The day before the treatment, the treated area should be shaved.

  • An extremely moisturizing cream (Biophadine) must be used after the session two or three times during two days and make up is allowed. You may go back to your daily activities right after the treatment.
