Astanza Laser Celebrates National Hair Removal Day
You know how the saying goes, “Everything’s bigger in Texas,” right? We took that saying seriously and went big to celebrate the first National Hair Removal Day at our headquarters in Dallas. From going LIVE on Instagram and Facebook to sharing client content and patient testimonials to setting up a full-blown photo booth with props, the Astanza team had a great time sharing all things laser hair removal for #NationalHairRemovalDay.
Since we’re about all things lasers here at Astanza, we naturally centered our celebrations on laser hair removal and our clients who provide laser hair removal with the Asclepion MeDioStar®, backed by Astanza.
Take a look at this video below, showing a live laser hair removal treatment utilizing the MeDioStar®. Krystal Haney, Senior Clinical Trainer for Astanza, provides the treatment while explaining the process and answering FAQs about laser hair removal.
As you can see in the video above, an entire laser hair removal session for legs can be done in about 15 min, especially if practitioners opt for the XL handpiece, the largest spot size available on the market, at 10cm2.
Dozens of practitioners and laser business owners shared their promotions and celebrations of National Hair Removal Day on social media, educating their audience and touting their premiere services. Check out what people shared on social media using the official #NationalHairRemovalDay hashtag on Instagram and Facebook.
Why Laser is the Best Advanced Hair Removal Method
The most common advanced methods for hair removal include waxing, electrolysis, and laser. Understanding the differences in these methods and the long-term effects will help practitioners educate their clients and persuade them to invest in their services.
Laser hair removal is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that uses a laser device to remove unwanted hair from various body parts. It works by targeting hair follicles, heating them up, and destroying them with the laser, preventing hair from growing back. It’s a newer and much faster method for permanent hair reduction than electrolysis. While waxing is more affordable than laser treatment or electrolysis, results are temporary, and most clients see regrowth just two weeks post-treatment.
When comparing laser to electrolysis, the treatment time for a laser hair removal session is significantly shorter than the average treatment time for electrolysis. Practitioners can treat several hair follicles in one clean pass with a laser instead of targeting each hair follicle individually with electrolysis. Additionally, the average number of laser sessions needed for complete hair removal is between six and 10, while the average number of electrolysis sessions is between 8 and 12.

What Makes Diode Hair Removal Lasers the Most Effective
One of the longest-running battles for the best hair removal devices is IPL vs. diode hair removal technology. A critical difference between these two types of hair removal technology is the wavelengths of light utilized. Hair removal lasers typically use one wavelength (and occasionally an additional second wavelength, as seen in the MeDioStar®). IPL devices, on the other hand, produce a broad spectrum of light energy. The visible light spectrum is between 400 and 700nm, and infrared is 700 to 1400nm. IPL devices generally emit indiscriminate light energy ranging from 400 to 1200nm, while hair removal laser devices such as the MeDioStar® emit two wavelengths: 810nm and 940nm. The combination of these two wavelengths found in the MeDioStar® creates long-lasting permanent hair reduction safely on all Fitzpatrick skin types.
Another benefit of diode hair removal lasers compared to other devices is that it is a relatively painless procedure. Unlike other hair removal methods, such as waxing and threading, laser hair removal does not involve pulling or tugging the skin. Instead, the laser device emits a beam of light that heats only the hair follicle, leaving the surrounding skin unaffected.
The Asclepion MeDioStar®, backed by Astanza, is a powerful diode hair removal laser machine that effectively treats unwanted hair anywhere on the body safely on all skin types – even newly-tanned skin.
