The Lazeo centers have an entire unit dedicated to permanent laser hair removal and offer rates for every budget, for women and men alike, and for any area (body and face). We have the most advanced machines suitable for effective and safe hair removal on all skin tones.
Purposes and possible options
Laser hair removal makes it possible to gradually remove hair from any area of the body or face with permanent results. The principle is simple. The laser targets the melanin in the hair heating it at such a high temperature that the whole hair will disintegrate. The bulb, shaft and all components of the hair are destroyed. The darker and thicker the hair and the lighter the skin, the better the result with the laser. Laser hair removal does not work or is not very effective on blond hairs.
On average, 8 to 10 sessions are needed to permanently remove body hair, and 8 to 12 sessions for facial fuzz. All body areas can be treated with laser. The number of sessions for permanent hair removal can also vary from one person to another, for instance depending on hormonal factors. It is essential to shave the area the day before your hair removal session, EXCEPT all areas of the face where hair needs to remain as is.
Laser hair removal should not be confused with pulsed light – they are two completely different techniques and produce incomparable results.
Our medical lasers
The Alexandrite laser:
This laser is the most commonly used worldwide. It has been especially designed for white skin types 1, 2 and 3 and has a wavelength of 750 nm. The diameter of the laser can reach 1.8 cm.
The machine transmits a violet laser with a pulse on the skin that lasts about 5 milliseconds. Once it comes into contact with the melanin, the laser reaches a temperature of 80 degrees and will destroy the hair root.
For a more comfortable treatment, the machine is equipped with an air system that cools down the area after each pulse. This laser is contraindicated for tanned or dark skin as it would not make a distinction between the melanin in the hair and in the skin, and would end up burning the skin.
The Nd Yag laser:
This laser is especially suitable for hair removal from olive and black skin (skin types 4, 5 and 6) in complete safety and without the risk of burning it. This laser has a wavelength of 1064 nm, which helps to target the hairs deep down and make a distinction between the melanin in the hair and in the skin.
Its low intensity compared to the Alexandrite laser requires more sessions and can be a slightly more painful treatment. The machine is also equipped with a cold air system to blow air onto the skin when each laser pulse is delivered. This means that all skin types can be treated at Lazeo.
What happens at a session?
Before the treatment, the laser therapist starts by examining the patient to confirm that their hair is compatible with laser hair removal (the hairs must be dark) and choose the device and its settings according to the skin tone. The laser therapist will also arrange a price package for the patient.
After an initial check-up consultation, if it turns out that the patient can benefit from a laser hair removal treatment, he can start his hair removal session at a new appointment.
The hairs must be shaved as they could burn the skin after each laser impact. The laser operator and the patient must wear protective eyewear to protect their eyes from the laser.
A 5 millisecond laser shot is applied at the same time as a blast of cold air to soothe the tingling from the laser. To increase the patients’ comfort, an anesthetic cream can be applied to the most sensitive areas.
After the session, the laser operator applies a soothing and repairing cream on the treated area. The next hair removal session will be scheduled at least 1 month later. With every session, the hairs become finer, lighter, take longer to grow back and then gradually disappear. The skin becomes increasingly smoother. 1 or 2 touch-up sessions may be required a few years later as some isolated hairs may grow back.
The laser is also effective on hair trapped under the skin (ingrown hairs).
Do not expose the skin to the sun for at least 3 weeks before the permanent hair removal session and one week after the session. Hairs should not be plucked prior to laser hair removal since the bulb must be present for the laser to work. It is recommended to shave the area to be treated the day before the session.
Tanning, pregnancy, breastfeeding, blond, white and red hairs, herpes and photosensitizing medical treatments (specific antibiotics, Roaccutane, etc.), skin infections, diseases and lesions.

Is laser hair removal really permanent?Laser hair removal is not considered to be 100% permanent but as long-term hair removal or gradually permanent hair removal. This means that it helps to eliminate hair, but it does not prevent fine, fair hairs from growing after a few years. Of course, these new hairs remain isolated: the patient will never regain their original hair. 1 to 2 maintenance sessions per year are recommended.
Can I have laser hair removal if I have black skin?
Laser hair removal is suitable for all skin colors. For olive, mixed-race and black skin, the laser therapist will choose the ND Yag laser, which is specially designed for naturally dark skin. It helps to differentiate between the melanin in the hair and in the skin, preventing any skin burns.
Is hair removal possible without removing all hair?
Yes, it is entirely possible to have laser hair removal to thin hair. This is particularly requested by men wishing to reduce the amount of hair on their torso, pubic area or beard. Some women also wish to thin the hair in the bikini area to prevent, for example, a radical difference between the laser-treated area (at the sides) and the area which still has hair (e.g. landing strip). The laser therapist will reduce the laser’s energy level over the course of the sessions in order to thin and not completely remove the hair.
Can I have laser hair removal if I have blond hair?
Laser hair removal does not work on blond, white or red hair because they contain little to no melanin. In fact, the aim of the laser is to focus on the melanin and to turn into heat to burn the melanin-enriched target hair. Electrolysis is recommended to permanently remove fair hair.
Is laser hair removal painful?
Laser hair removal is not really painful, but each person feels pain differently. A tingling is felt with each laser pulse. It is true that certain areas are much more sensitive than others: a very extended or full bikini or the inner buttocks are very sensitive areas, while laser hair removal is completely bearable on the legs. The laser therapist will apply an anesthetic cream containing a high concentration of lidocaine to make the patient more comfortable. It is important to note that the more “painful” the laser is, the more effective it will be.
What do I have to do before and after a laser hair removal session?
The area to be treated must be shaved at least 1 day before the hair removal session to prevent any burns. In fact, the hair is burnt by the laser, which can cause burns if it comes into contact with the skin. Apart from men’s beards, the face does not need to be shaved because the hair is downy. Above all, it is important to note that wax or tweezers must not be used to remove hair before the session because the bulb must remain intact to destroy it. Tanning must be avoided completely for at least 2 to 3 weeks and any photo-sensitizing treatments (e.g. antibiotics) before and after the session to prevent any skin burns. Applying suncream at least 1 to 2 weeks before the session is highly recommended.
Are there any risks or side effects?
It is important to distinguish between risks and side effects. In fact, risks can only be prevented if certain rules are followed: the contraindications, the laser chosen and the settings. For example, hair must not be removed from black skin using the Alexandrite machine, which is suitable for white skin, or the patient will suffer burns. When it comes to pregnancy or breastfeeding, there is no definite proof, but laser hair removal is contraindicated in such cases for prevention. There are different side effects: they are normal effects but do vary. More or less severe redness, irritation or swelling may appear on the skin after a session, but this does not always occur.
How many sessions will it take to get rid of my hair?
That depends on the type of hair and the area treated. An average of 5 to 6 laser hair removal sessions are needed to remove very dark, thick hair on the legs, bikini area, underarms and all body areas. You should therefore estimate an average of 6 to 7 months of treatment with around 1 month in between two sessions. More sessions – 7 to 8 sessions on average, or more – should be expected for fairer and finer hair and for downy hair.
How long does a session last?
That depends on the area to be treated: it ranges from 2 minutes for the upper lip to around 1 hour for full legs.
What machines are used for laser hair removal?
We use the Alexandrite for white skin and the Nd yag laser for dark skin. They are the most highly renowned and popular machines in the world. The Nd yag laser works differently because it distinguishes between the melanin in the hair and in the skin to prevent any burns. It also has a higher wavelength.
What is the difference between laser hair removal and pulsed light?
Laser hair removal is more effective than pulsed light. Both methods have the same aim: burn the hair. But they have different levels of effectiveness: a laser uses a very narrow wavelength that is very concentrated on the area, while pulsed light uses a much broader and less intense wavelength. As a result, it is less effective and the hair can grow back after 3 to 4 years.
