Permanent hair removal

The laser light is converted to heat by the pigment in the hair follicle, destroying the hair root and causing the hair to shed.

No more shaving or waxing

Traditional epilation methods (shaving, waxing or tweezing) give only short-lived results with the consequence that you do spend time every few days removing excess hair. Also, the cost of the products you have to buy over and over again to epilate increases over the years.

Fortunately, there is a solution to these inconveniences - permanent hair removal. Permanent hair removal, also known as laser hair removal, is completely safe and delivers long-lasting results!

How does laser hair removal work?

Laser hair removal Leuven

1. Choice of treatment area

We begin our treatment in your chosen zones, focusing on actively growing hairs to achieve the best results.

Laser hair removal Leuven

2. Laser hair removal

The melanin (also called the pigment) in your hair absorbs the heat from our medical diode laser and heats the entire hair shaft.

Laser hair removal Leuven

3. Hair follicle

The hair follicle is destroyed (or at least severely weakened) by the heat of the diode laser, causing it to detach from the hair shaft.

Laser hair removal Leuven

4. Permanent hair loss

Once the hair follicle is destroyed, it is impossible for the hair to grow back - thus obtaining permanent hair removal in the treated area.

How long do the results of laser hair removal last?

Compared to conventional hair removal methods, laser hair removal for women and men offers long-lasting results. Although this technique has been recognized as the most efficient hair removal method, it cannot guarantee total hair removal. The treatment is designed to reduce hair growth by up to 80%-90%, and the hairs that do grow back will be finer and softer. Also know that laser hair removal cannot prevent the appearance of new hair follicles due to hormonal changes (pregnancy, menopause, hormonal imbalance). The use of certain medications or, for example, a period of stress and a lot of exercise can also contribute to changes that allow our body to produce hair again. In this case, touch-up sessions are scheduled.

Is laser hair removal expensive?

Although the initial cost of laser hair removal for women and men is significantly higher than waxing at a salon or purchasing shaving equipment, you are guaranteed to save money in the long run. Conventional hair removal seems cheaper, but of course it must be repeated for years. The purchase of razors, depilatory creams or monthly wax/resin treatments becomes unnecessary and - importantly - you also save time! At the end of the treatment, you will enjoy more confidence, more comfort and a solid time savings.

Can all types of hair be lasered?

To depilate with a laser, the hairs must contain pigment. The laser beam uses the dark pigment (melanin) in your hair as conduction to penetrate the hair follicle from which the hair grows. If the hair does not contain pigment, laser hair removal is of little use. Blonde, gray and red hairs do not contain pigment and therefore cannot be treated. In some cases, it can be tried if there is still some melanin (i.e. pigment) in the hair. Lasering thin downy hairs is also not an option.

How many treatments are needed to get rid of my hair?

The exact number depends on your age, hormones, the location and color of your hair, your type of skin, and other factors. After only three treatments, you can usually see a nice effect, but it is not yet the desired result. It takes an average of 5 to 6 laser treatments to remove very black and thick hairs on the legs, bikini line, armpits and other body parts. So you should count on an average of 6 to 7 months of treatment with an interval of about 4-6 weeks between laser treatments. You should count on more treatments for the lighter and thinner hairs : an average of 7 to 8 treatments or even more.

Laser hair removal for men?

Men often have more and darker body hair than women, and hair growth also occurs in other places, such as the back, abdomen and chest. Do you experience this as a problem? Then consider getting permanent hair removal in a particular area. More and more men finding their way to laser hair removal.

Preparation for laser hair removal

  • It is important that you do not wax or epilate the area you wish to have treated from 6-8 weeks before your first appointment. That way you will ensure faster and longer lasting results. Also, no dyes or bleaches.
  • Sunbathing, as well as tanning beds or self-tanning creams have a negative effect on permanent hair removal. So all types of tanning are not recommended when you have your excess hair removed by means of laser hair removal.
  • Properly clean the zone to be treated: no makeup, deodorant, skin creams, and other factors that may affect hygiene.

Aftercare after laser hair removal

  • The first week after the treatment, it seems as if the hairs are growing again. However, these are only hairs shed by the hair follicle. The first results can be seen only after a few days: on average one week for the face, 2 weeks for armpits and bikini waxing and 3 weeks for the legs.
  • For at least 4 weeks after treatment no sun or tanning bed to prevent pigmentation.
  • Sauna, hot bath or shower are not allowed as long as any redness is visible.
  • Between treatments do not wax or pull out hair with tweezers! Only shaving is allowed.

Safe and efficient

Laser hair removal using a diode laser is completely safe, provided it is done properly by a trained laser therapist. Furthermore, it is important to discuss your (medical) history: conditions, UV exposure, illnesses, medications, etc.

Benefits of laser hair removal

Of course, the durable result of laser hair removal is the main advantage over conventional hair removal techniques. However, there are other advantages:

No ingrown hairs

Removing unwanted hair growth by shaving with a razor blade or working with a wax strip sometimes brings inconveniences, such as ingrown hairs. These ingrown hairs can cause irritation, inflammation and discoloration. With laser hair removal, this is not the case.

No inflamed hair follicles

Repeated epilation by shaving and/or waxing the same area can also result in inflamed hair follicles (they are located in the top layer of skin and this is where your hair grows from). Such an inflammation is also known as folliculitis and is common, at all ages, in both men and women.

No razor wounds

An annoying and fortunately usually short-lived side effect of conventional shaving that everyone has had to deal with at one time or another : shaving wounds. You can get these if you push too hard on your razor blade, if you shave hard-to-reach areas or if you are simply careless.

No razor burns

In addition, skin irritation from shaving or waxing can also cause redness. This can be the case with razor burn. In addition to redness, shaving burn can also leave you with a burning sensation and itching. It disappears after a few hours or days, but can be quite uncomfortable.

The history of laser hair removal

The history of laser hair removal spans several decades. Although lasers were invented as early as 1960 and sporadic attempts were made to conduct hair removal with this - old - laser technology, it was not until 1983 that a theoretical basis was laid for selective laser hair removal. It wasn't until 1994 that real laser hair removal was perfected.

Vicky Poelmans Laser Hair Removal Leuven

For whom is laser hair removal suitable?

Anyone with excess body hair can use laser hair removal; it is a cosmetic procedure that can improve your appearance or self-image. Many people also prefer not to have to shave regularly.

However, sometimes laser hair removal can also address excessive hair growth caused by medical conditions, such as:


Hirsutism is stiff or dark body hair that appears on the body where women usually have no hair - mainly the face, chest, lower abdomen, inner thighs and back. Often hirsutism has no known cause, but is a symptom of other conditions.

More on hirsutism


Hypertrichosis is a condition characterized by excessive hair growth anywhere on a person's body. It can affect both women and men and is extremely rare. The abnormal hair growth can cover both face and body or occur in small patches and occurs at birth or develops later.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why are multiple sessions of laser hair removal necessary?
Laser hair removal works only on the "growing" hairs at the time of treatment. These are hairs that are in the anagen phase of the growth cycle. Hairs in the other phases - catagen, telogen and exogenous phases - are not affected by laser energy. You always have multiple hairs in different stages of the growth cycle. This makes it impossible to treat all the hairs in the target area in one single laser session. Your laser hair removal sessions are scheduled at intervals that allow us to laser the hair follicles when they are in the anagen phase of the cycle. Undergoing only one or two sessions will have little or no long-term effect.
How many laser hair removal sessions do I need?
Usually 6-8 sessions are recommended at 6-8 week intervals.
What is the recovery from laser hair removal?
There is no rest period associated with laser hair removal treatment. After your appointment, you can expect some itching and redness in the treatment area. During this period, we recommend staying out of the sun and not applying makeup, creams/lotions/serums to this area as long as there is redness/irritation. After your very first treatment, you may possibly notice some peeling. The hair strands that were in the follicles at the time of treatment will peel off after a few days, instantly smoothing the skin. Just continue showering and dry your skin gently as usual.
How long does a laser hair removal session take?
The duration of each session depends on the size of the area being treated. For example, treatment of an area such as the upper lip takes less than a minute, while an average area may take up to 15 minutes, while a large area may take up to an hour.
Why do I need to shave before a laser hair removal session?
Many of our clients ask why they need to shave before a laser hair removal session. Because laser hair removal works by focusing energy on the targeted hair and the hair follicle, we want to make sure the majority of the energy is focused on the hair shaft under the skin and the follicle for best results. We don't want to waste the energy by scorching the hair on top of the skin and reduce the amount of energy focused on the hair follicle. You cannot wax, wax or sugar the area because the hair follicle under the skin must be intact for the laser to actually damage it with energy.
