Laser Treatments Windhoek
Founded in 2001 the Laser & Cosmetic Institute - Windhoek was the first to introduce Laser treatments to Namibia. Currently the Laser Clinic offers 3 different types of laser treatments:
LightSheer DUET - Permament Hair Reduction
The LightSheer with its dramatically increased spot size of 22 mm x 35 mm combined with innovative vacuum-assist technology enables you to treat larger areas such as backs and legs comfortably in about 15-20 minutes, without topical anesthetics and treatment gel.
- Dramatically increased 22 mm x 35 mm spot size is the largest of any diode laser
- Integrated vacuum-assist technology enhances light absorption, improves treatment comfort
- No topical anesthetic is required, eliminating lengthy treatment preparation
- No treatment gel is used during high speed treatment, saving additional time and money
- High Speed LightSheer Duet reduces treatment times up to 75%
- Improves procedure profitability
Star Pulse KTP - Vein Removal
The KTP laser is a vascular laser that specifically treats broken capillaries and/or vessels on the face and legs. The wavelength of the laser is absorbed by the colour of blood in the vessels thus 'sealing' them and rendering them invisible. The cause of broken capillaries is genetic, being more commonly found in persons with fair skin. The occurrence of broken capillaries, however, is heightened by lifestyle habits such as exposure to sun, consumption of alcohol, etc.
The procedure is relatively quick. No anaesthesia is required. The patient wears goggles to protect their eyes from the laser light. The laser light is placed across the damaged capillaries causing these capillaries to go into spasm and disappear as they are being treated.
IPL - Photorejuvenation
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) skin treatments address the effects of photoaging and sun damage with low risk of complications and no recovery time.
IPL provides dramatic results for a variety of benign conditions, including age spots, sun-induced freckles, symptoms of rosacea, birthmarks, unsightly veins, acne scarring and other blemishes — even unwanted hair.
Why choose IPL over other treatment options? Laser resurfacing and deep chemical peels often send patients into hiding, as they wait for redness and swelling to subside. Microdermabrasion addresses skin irregularities, but is not effective against all complexion problems including redness, flushing and broken capillaries. Face lifts and other surgical procedures are far too invasive for younger patients and "baby boomers" who simply want to revitalize their
appearance without recovery downtime.
Treatment is generally administered in a series of 4-6 sessions, each treatment taking about 20 minutes.
