The Q Switch Helios III uses patented Nd:Yag technology with the newest industry features and technology. Each of the Helios III hand piece provides a high stability of output energy. The most amazing feature of the Helios III Nd:Yag laser is its ability to adjust from Single Pulse to Twin Pulse.
The Single Pulse provides a single focused beam that features more power than its competitors. The beam profile of the Helios III Single Pulse consists of one peak delivering a high amount of focused energy. The single pulse function is ideal for treating tattoos and temporary hair reduction.
The Twin Pulse, also called Pulse to Pulse, provides a dual pulse which is having two smaller peaks closer together rather than one single pulse. Thus resulting dual pulse which delivers more energy than the single pulse but spread it just over both peaks.
How Do I Know if I Need this Treatment?
The Q-switched laser is an appropriate treatment if you want to remove fine hairs anywhere on the body. We stress that this treatment is only temporary hair removal. It is widely use for temporary hair reduction of fine hair since it delays hair growth which usually lasts 1-3 months, better option than waxing and shaving which causes rough skin and ingrown hairs.
The Q-switched laser is not appropriate for pregnant women or patients who have taken Accutane for the past six months. Persons with a history of cold sores or herpes simplex virus should not have this procedure until they are treated for the said conditions.

LASER HAIR BLEACHING FAQ
Let’s break it down and go back to the roots. So, the melanin in your hair follicle absorbs the laser light, which heats up the hair follicle. This laser destroys the roots. Don’t worry, the surrounding skin will be safe. Plus, there will be no ingrowths. Yes, those annoying little things. All gone.
The result? Silky smooth skin that you can’t get enough of.
Men and women above the age of 18 years can opt for laser hair reduction. It’s safe for all skin types.
Before the treatment, the area to be treated will be cleansed. Some patients receive a numbing gel. Numbing the area to be treated helps when a small area will be treated and the skin is very sensitive. It takes about 30 to 60 minutes for a numbing gel to work.
The laser treatment will take place in a room set up specifically for laser treatments. Everyone in the room must wear protective eyewear during the procedure. To perform the procedure, the skin is held taut and the skin is treated with the laser. Many patients say that the laser pulses feel like warm pinpricks or a rubber band being snapped against the skin.
A laser removes hair by vaporizing it. This causes small plumes of smoke that have a sulfur-like smell.
How long your treatment lasts depends on the size of the area being treated. Treating the upper lip takes minutes. If you are having a large area like the back or legs treated, your treatment may last more than an hour.
No, laser hair removal generally does not require any real downtime. Immediately after having laser hair removal, your treated skin will be red and swollen. Despite this, most people return to their everyday activities.
Laser bleaching is only temporary and needs to be done every 4 – 6 weeks. Though for some patients hair that has been repeatedly bleached grows thinner and falls out, but that doesn’t happen for everyone.
