What is the difference between laser and photolysis? How will I know if the machine is laser or photolysis?
The laser is a monochromatic beam of light, while the pulsed light of photolysis is a polychromatic light emission. Regarding its mode of action, the laser destroys the hair based on the principles of selective photothermolysis, while in photolysis we have non-specific thermal damage to the hair. The alexandrite laser usually has a red beam color as the alexandrite rock that makes up the head is red.
Can I do laser all the months of the year?
In the summer season and the first autumn months, we should be extremely careful on tanned skins and particularly photo-exposed areas.
When can I start lasering?
