Laser Hair Removal
Laser Hair Removal is a permanent method that eliminates unwanted hair in the body. The target in the process is the pigment of melanin that gives the color of the tissue hair. The laser energy from the source is absorbed by the melanin pigment, converted to heat and destroys the hair follicle.
It is necessary to apply the procedure with repeated sessions. The reason for this is that the hair in the body is found in 3 different stages at the same time for all regions. These stages are called growth (anagen), resting (catagen), and shedding (telelgen). Laser Hair Removal only affects the hair growth period (anagen). Because only at this stage melanin pigment is present in the hair follicles that will allow the absorption of the laser beam; At any given time, the rate of hair in the anagen phase is around 10 % - 20 %, in the body. For this reason, Laser Hair Removal is applied through repeated sessions. Depending on the hair type and skin structure, successful results are obtained after the application of the average 4-8 sessions.

What is PRP?
PRP (platelet rich plasma) is the abbreviated name of the treatment method called the application of plasma enriched with plateletcells to the skin. This application is based on the separation of small amount of blood taken from one person into a special tube and centrifugation process, and the return of the small amount of cell-rich plasma (PRP) obtained by injection to the same person. These cells in the obtained plasma have “growth factors” that are necessary to repair the tissues damaged due to aging and various reasons at our body.

A healthy glow appears on the skin immediately after application.
