Hirsutism Laser Division was established at HYGEIA Hospital in 1997.
Having accumulated great experience on the treatment of hirsutism with laser, it was concluded that results are better:

  • In areas that are less hormone-dependent (e.g. Legs, bikini line, armpits, hands).
  • In areas where no other method has ever been used.
  • In individuals with light complexion and dark piliation.
  • When high levels of energy are used.

More specifically, in these areas it has been noted that after 5-6 sessions in a period of 1 year, piliation is reduced by 70-80%, while the rest of hair come out thinner and lighter in color.

Treatment is painless; it does not cause complications and is applied in other cases as well.

The Division features state-of-the-art equipment which is handled by a specialized surgeon doctor. At the same time, the Division collaborates with similar British and Russian Departments for the exchange of knowledge and experience.

The HYGEIA Hospital Laser & Hair Removal Department is equipped with the latest laser technology and offers effective treatments for removing excess body hair in men and women.

The laser emits a thin beam of light, which is absorbed by the melanin in the hair and causes thermal destruction of the follicle, leaving the surrounding skin unaffected. Depending on the type of skin, the lasers used are:

  • Alexandrite laser
  • Nd:YAG laser 

In most cases, laser hair removal offers a permanent solution and is practically painless.  During treatment, the skin is protected by a cooling mechanism, which helps cool its upper layers. So, the procedure is even safer. The total number of sessions required to achieve permanent hair reduction depends on the sex, body area, and type of skin and hair.

A new state-of-the-art laser hair removal system that combines hair removal with the treatment of pigmented and vascular lesions has been recently installed at HYGEIA Hospital.  The GentleLase Pro-U is a latest generation Αlexandrite laser system that offers fast, painless and effective treatment with permanent results. It can be used on all skin types and offers effective action, causing maximum absorption of energy by the targeted skin pigment.

Press Release


How is laser treatment performed?
The Laser sends out energy which is absorbed by hair follicles and then turns into heat. This heat destroys the hair at approximately 1/1000 of a second!

In which parts of the face and body can we use depilation?
Ιn all facial and body parts.

Is laser effective in all types of hair?
Yes, but the response and the number of sessions depend on various factors. Black hair respond better than light color hair.

Is depilation permanent?
All hair that is inactivated during a treatment, are permanently inactivated. However, there is a percentage of hair in resting phase during the first treatment, which will not respond. That’s why, in some cases, more treatments may be required.

What are the possible complications?
Laser treatment is practically painless. There may be some skin irritation which may last for an hour or a few days.Also, it is very rare that some skin hypopigmentation or hyperpigmentation is noted; this is why patients should avoid sunbathing immediately after treatment.
