Alexandrite laser in IRAN
Alexandrite laser – GoTreat Group is an Iranian medical tourism provider. in the GoTreat Group, we have various services include beauty, medical and health services those offer in the fraction cost. Alexandrite is one of the most popular laser services in the world and you can enjoy it during your travel to beautiful Iran. The Alexandrite laser is one of the most widely used hair removal lasers, operating at a shorter wavelength of 755nm (near-infrared wavelength). It provides efficient, permanent hair reduction with clinically confirmed results. The alexandrite laser, with its large spot size and high repetition rate, is so practical. It is the fastest most widely used laser for hair removal and is suitable for rapid treatment of large body areas such a face, hands, legs, bikini line, back, and armpit. In patients with light to olive complexions and an entire back can be treated in less than thirty minutes. The darker a person’s hair and the lighter the color of their skin, the better the results they are likely to see.
What is an alexandrite laser? An alexandrite laser is one that uses an alexandrite crystal is used as the laser source or medium. The alexandrite laser produces a specific wavelength of light in the infrared spectrum (755 nm). It is considered a red light laser. Alexandrite lasers are also available in the Q-switched mode. Q-switching refers to the technique of making the laser produce a high-intensity beam in very short pulses. The long-pulsed alexandrite laser can be effective for permanent hair removal. The typical settings employed include pulse durations of 2 to 20 milliseconds and fluences of 10 to 40 J/cm2. All hair-removal procedures are performed using cooling to protect the epidermis while heating the hair shaft and surrounding follicular structure. It is effective for treating dark hair safely in patients. Benefits The benefits of Alexandrite Laser are:
- The fastest hair removal laser
- Large spot size (up to 18mm) and high repetition rate
- Can rapidly treat large body areas – an entire back can be treated in less than 30 minutes
- Suitable for patients with fair to olive complexions
- The fast laser repetition means fast treatment times
- Effective on a wide range of skin types ranging from white to olive tones
- Effective on thinner hair types when compared with other lasers
- The laser system has an excellent penetration rate
- Large areas of skin can be covered
What is an alexandrite laser used for?
- Hair removal of various areas of the body like face, leg, arm, underarm, bikini line and Genital area
- Vascular Lesions
- Pigmented Lesions
- Tattoo removal
Candidates The best candidates for this sort of laser treatment are people with fair skin and dark hair color (brown or black). These candidates are typically characterized by the Fitzpatrick scale of skin phenotype from I-IV. How does an alexandrite laser work? The wavelength of high energy light emitted by the laser is converted to heat energy and this damages the specific target area. Thus alexandrite lasers work by a process of photothermolysis: this means using light (photo) to heat (thermal) a selected area for destruction (lysis). Alexandrite lasers cause very precise tissue destruction of the lesion and leave the tissue in the surrounding area undamaged. Before treatment, if you are planning on undergoing alexandrite laser hair removal, you should limit plucking, waxing, and electrolysis for six weeks before treatment. That’s because the laser targets the hairs’ roots, which are temporarily removed by waxing or plucking. You should also avoid sun exposure for six weeks before and after treatment, as sun exposure makes laser hair removal less effective and makes complications after treatment more likely.
What does the laser procedure involve?
It is important that the correct diagnosis has been made by the clinician prior to treatment, particularly when pigmented lesions are targeted, to avoid mistreatment of skin cancers such as melanoma. The patient must wear eye protection consisting of an opaque covering or goggles throughout the treatment session. Treatment consists of placing a hand piece against the surface of the skin and activating the laser. Many patients describe each pulse to feel like the snapping of a rubber band against the skin. The topical anesthetic may be applied to the area but is not usually necessary. Skin surface cooling is applied during all hair-removal procedures. Some lasers have built-in cooling devices. Safety Alexandrite Laser hair removal is safe as long as patients follow the care instructions of our medical estheticians. Every precaution is taken to ensure that you have safe and effective treatments. Lasers used for laser hair removal are non-ionizing; they do not carry any mutagenic radiation whatsoever. The lasers only have a heating effect. How many laser treatment sessions will be needed? To obtain significant laser hair reduction, most patients will need 4-6 treatments over a 12 month period, and some elect to have maintenance treatment after that. Aftercare
- Immediately following treatment, an ice pack may be applied to soothe the treated area.
- Care should be taken in the first few days following treatment to avoid scrubbing the area, and/or use of abrasive skin cleansers.
- A bandage or patch may help to prevent abrasion of the treated area.
- During the course of treatment, patients should protect the area from sun exposure to reduce the risk of post inflammatory pigmentation.
Side effects Side effects from alexandrite laser treatment are usually minor and may include:
- Pain during treatment (reduced by contact cooling and if necessary, topical anesthetic)
- Redness, swelling and itching immediately after the procedure that may last a few days after treatment.
- Rarely, skin pigment may absorb too much light energy and blistering can occur. This settles by itself.
- Changes in skin pigmentation. Sometimes the pigment cells (melanocytes) can be damaged leaving darker (hyperpigmentation) or paler (hypopigmentation) patches of skin. Generally, cosmetic lasers will work better on people with lighter than darker skin tones.
- Bruising affects up to 10% of patients. It usually fades on its own.
- Bacterial infection. Antibiotics may be prescribed to treat or to prevent wound infection.
Limitation As the skin shade grows darker, there is an increased risk of side effects. Also, it has been noted that blonde, red and white are almost completely non-responsive towards the treatment. Costs It is charged by the area, which is roughly determined by how many pulses are needed for the area. For example, a small area like the underarms is considerably less expensive than a larger area like the legs.
