At the Derma-Act clinics, our aim is to achieve the best result quickly, painlessly and absolutely safely. For this reason:

  • The procedures of hair removal are administered follwoing strict medical protocols;

Before a procedure with Alexandrite laser and ND: YAG laser in Derma-Act, we do the following:

  • Record past medical history;
  • Test the procedure on a small spot of your skin to ensure that it is suitable for laser hair removal;
  • Perform an examination, in which we identify the features of hair growth;
  • Perform a thorough dermatological examination to detect presence of follicular nevi, vascular or skin lesions on the skin;
  • Test sensitive areas to rule out the presence of viral infections or venereal diseases (if hair removal involves the genital area).

Preparation before the first procedure of laser hair removal

  • Shave the area of depilation within one or two days before procedure. On the day of laser hair removal, the hair on the surface of skin should be 2-3 mm long.
  • Avoid the performance of chemical peeling, laser procedures, dermabrasion or other treatments in the area of depilation within at least 4 weeks before the laser hair removal.
  • Avoid exposure to sunlight or any method of artificial tanning within 2 to 4 weeks before laser hair removal.
  • Do not use products that may contain colour or fragrance in the area of depilation before the procedure.
  • Do not use waxing on the area to be treated within at least 4 to 6 weeks before laser hair removal. Any method of hair removal that may inhibit the formation of hair follicle and disorder its growth cycle or affect hte efficacy of laser hair removal must be completely avoided.


Frequently Asked Questions

Laser hair removal with the combined technology of Elite™ is painless. It is a non-invasive medical procedure that is administered on the skin surface and consequently does not cause pain or injury. During treatment, only a mild momentary discomfort may be present.
The recommended interval between sessions is usually between 4 and 10 weeks depending on the anatomical area and the change in the rate of hair growth. With the increase of procedure number, the interval between visits is gradually increased.

Ο αριθμός των συνεδριών που απαιτούνται για να επιτευχθεί ένα βέλτιστο αποτέλεσμα εξαρτάται από την περιοχή, την ποιότητα των τριχών και κάποιους δευτερεύοντες παράγοντες που επηρεάζουν τον φυσιολογικό κύκλο ανάπτυξης της τρίχας, όπως η ηλικία, ορμονικοί παράγοντες, το βάρος, η λήψη φαρμάκων, ο μεταβολισμός, η κληρονομικότητα και ορισμένες παθολογικές καταστάσεις. Συνήθως χρειάζονται 6-8 συνεδρίες.

The hair life cycle consists of 3 repeating phases. The phase of growth (regeneration), the phase of rest (degeneration) and the phase of apoptosis. During laser hair removal, only hair that is in the phase of growth will be permanently removed, since at that time the hair follicle has a higher melanin concentration and correspondingly laser energy is better absorbed. The rest of the hair grows again; hence, secondary sessions are required until the laser reaches all the hair at the stage of its life cycle which is appropriate for permanent removal.

Usually, hereditary predisposition or hormonal imbalance are responsible for excessive hair growth. During periods of normal biological changes in women such as adolescence, pregnancy, menopause or old age, an increase of hair growth in the areas which did not have hair previously, is noted. Hair growth may also be affected by other factors associated with obesity, stress or intake of certain drugs.
On the day of the procedure, the hair on the skin surface should be 2-3 mm long and for this reason, it should be shaved several days previously. Otherwise, the correct determination of the hair quality and quantity will be difficult. The use of other methods of hair removal within 4-6 weeks before any procedure is not allowed.
Procedures may take ten minutes to an hour and a half, depending on the size of the area to be treated.
