Photoepilation is a modern method of hair removal from any part of the body. Its principle is based on the use of high-pulse flashes of light. During the procedure, by heating the melanin pigment, a large amount of thermal energy is released, which completely destroys the hair follicle.
Before the procedure, a special cooling gel is applied to the skin. It prevents the occurrence of pain and improves the penetration of light on the epilated areas of the body. All that the patient feels is the movement of the manipulator on the surface of the skin.
The duration of the procedure depends on the zone, for example, armpits take 3-5 minutes. After the session, the gel is carefully removed and soothing cream is applied, which helps to quickly restore the dermis. Re-appointment with a cosmetologist should be in 3-4 weeks.

Compared to laser hair removal, photoepilation gives a less visible effect in the initial stages but allows you to get a more lasting result at the end of the full course. It has a more gentle effect on the skin, which reduces the risk of burns and other undesirable effects. Laser hair removal usually costs a little more.
