Never shave again, never epilate again – with a laser or IPL hair removal you get permanently smooth and supple skin. The application is possible for almost all body regions, especially armpits, arms and legs as well as chest and back. Intimate area and bikini line as well as the face can also be treated effectively.
Permanent hair removal in Berlin is performed at our locations in Mitte and Charlottenburg.
Hair removal with diode laser
Concentrated laser light is targeted straight at the hair pigment melanin. The resulting heat is directed to the hair roots, whereupon they become deserted.
As a consequence of its wavelength of only 800 nm, even particularly deep-rooted hairs can be removed efficiently. With the diode laser, the heat conversion from light to heat energy takes place very selectively, in contrast to the more extensive application of IPL light.
The IPL method is based on intense light pulses. The impulse is directed into the skin via the epidermis of the body region to be treated, similar to a camera flash. The harmless long-wave light is then absorbed by the melanin-containing hair and directed to the hair root.
The absorption causes the light to be converted into heat. At a temperature of 70-74 degrees Celsius, the protein decomposes and the hair follicle is obliterated.
BellaDerma uses both laser and IPL technology for permanent hair removal.
Laser light is emitted with only one wavelength and in high concentration.
In contrast, intense pulsed light (IPL) covers a more broadly defined spectral range.
Permanent hair removal in the intimate area (pubic hair removal) takes about 15 minutes, facial hair removal takes 10 minutes, permanent hair removal of the chest hair takes 20 minutes, we can treat hair removal of both legs or even complete hair removal of the back in just 60 minutes. Underarm hair can be permanently removed in 10 minutes with IPL devices.
Since laser hair removal in Berlin can only be performed on hair that is in the anagen phase (growth phase), 6-8 treatments are necessary for permanent hair removal. In each growth phase, approximately 20-30% of the hair follicles are active, which also corresponds to the maximum amount of hair by which the hair density can be reduced after each treatment. The Epilux system uses the safest and most modern technology and, when used correctly by experienced personnel, allows for optimal results. However, anyone who dreams of being and staying completely hairless after just one IPL hair removal treatment has not been properly informed.
Those who have their beard hair removed in Berlin will indeed never need to reach for a razor again. Patterns or contour lines can of course also be introduced with IPL and even unwelcome beard growth on a woman’s face can be treated.
With razors and adhesive strips, body depilation can of course be done yourself. The problem is that these methods are extremely painful and inefficient. In addition, the skin is unnecessarily irritated. Permanent hair removal with IPL, on the other hand, is gentler and much more promising.
The advantage that leg hair laser removal in Berlin offers lies in its permanence. Unlike waxing, sugaring or shaving, a method such as permanent hair removal with IPL or laser hair removal only needs to be applied a few times and ensures that unwelcome hair never comes back.
Every person has a different perception of pain. Therefore, it is not possible to say across the board whether laser hair removal is painful. Most patients describe the pain as moderate and compare the sensation of flashing to a taut rubber band being flicked onto the skin. The pain felt depends on the concentration of melanin present in both the epidermis and the hair of the target area. Therefore, patients with very dark hair and dark skin may find permanent hair removal with IPL or with the laser beam more uncomfortable than people with fair skin and medium brown hair. That is why dark skin types are also treated with a lower energy level.
No, although some people ask us if permanent hair removal is also painful. The answer here is also “no”. Nerves are only located at the hair roots, but these are not irritated by most methods, so no sensation can occur.
There is actually no medical treatment without some kind of side effects. In the vast majority of cases, however, they are only minor inconveniences that disappear on their own after a short time. This is also the case after permanent epilation. Immediately after the treatment for permanent laser hair removal in Berlin, a slight erythema (redness) often forms around the treated area. Sometimes small blisters or slight swelling (oedema) may also appear. However, all these natural skin reactions subside by themselves after a few hours to a few days after the treatment. In general, however, it can be stated that there are significantly fewer side effects after IPL laser hair removal than after epilation with ordinary laser light (laser epilation / laser hair removal) or other mechanical depilation techniques. Serious skin irritation, inflammation or scarring are excluded with the Epilux system.
It is not necessary to take medication after permanent IPL laser hair removal. However, the patient can sustainably support the treatment success of permanent laser hair removal by avoiding direct sunlight on the areas treated with the laser in the following weeks. The application of a gentle antiseptic ointment to the skin surface (e.g. 1% chlorhexidine) may be recommended for a few days to prevent inflammation of the treated body region and to alleviate possible skin reactions.
Unfortunately, the costs for permanent hair removal are rarely covered by health insurance or private health insurance. However, the prices at BellaDerma are reasonable and also suitable for smaller wallets. Health insurance companies cover the costs if there is a psychological impairment. This can be the case with hirsutism, for example. However, the prerequisite is the existence of a medical certificate and – in the case of private health insurance – the corresponding insurance contract.

Thanks to BellaDerma, I am enjoying the summer again. I had my leg hair removed at the specialist centre in Charlottenburg and have been enjoying my smooth legs ever since. In the past, permanent hair removal always hurt and was not that effective. Since the Epilux-SP method with special energy pulses has been available, the ugly hairs are permanently removed. The cost is low, especially when you consider that after 8 treatments you become hair-free.
Since I've had my hair removed, I dare to wear shorts in the garden again. Before, my legs looked really bushy and were not a pleasant sight. The great thing about belladerma is the painless procedure. Instead of the old IPL-1, which is still used in many places, the specialist centre works with the IPL-2 method. The advantage lies in the permanence, which makes this form of treatment not only sustainable in my eyes, but also affordable.
The worst thing was the looks from the men. If you have hair on your face, you quickly look like a man. But I can't help my facial hair. The permanent hair removal at belladerma in Berlin Charlottenburg was recommended to me by friends. The treatment involves light or a laser that scleroses the hair root. The treatment is painless, harmless and, in my experience, long-lasting. In this respect, my conclusion is positive to enthusiastic.
When I first heard about permanent hair removal, I couldn't believe it. After all, I had always tried new treatments like waxing or sugaring before and spent a lot of money on them. However, the IPL laser does much more and, above all, it doesn't hurt. In my case, it took three appointments to get rid of the hair on my underarms once and for all. Now I'm thinking of having BellaDerma treat my armpits and legs as well. The bottom line is that it actually saves money that would otherwise be spent on other treatments.
The permanent hair removal hurt me a bit, but I was recommended a painkilling gel by BellaDerma, which then worked. The effect of IPL is enormous. Already at the first appointment all hairs were gone and have grown back much more sparsely. Three appointments and growth phases later, my underarms were completely hair-free and smooth. Now it's the legs' turn next.
Is permanent hair removal a women-only issue? Not for a long time, but of course we men have a much harder time. I decided on a gradual treatment at BellaDerma and have at least already got rid of the hair under my arms and on my chest. Because I have light to medium-light hair, several appointments were necessary. Nothing has grown back so far (about five months).
You can buy IPL lasers and a friend of mine has one. But the stupid thing is that she doesn't know how to use it properly and I don't dare either, especially not on my face. For this reason, I had the fuzz on my neck and lower face treated at BellaDerma. The laser is much more modern and powerful and when professionals are at work, the treatment only takes a few minutes. After four months, I'm still totally satisfied and the hair hasn't come back so far.
A woman with hair on her chin? That's not possible at all. I'm not usually a fan of epilation, but I really can't have hair on my face. Tweezers and razors have helped in the short term, but I wanted to take a long-term approach. BellaDerma relieved me of the hair in two appointments with permanent hair removal. The whole thing only took a few minutes and has lasted for more than two years now. Thank you!
Things to know about hair
If we were to take a single hair "under the microscope" or put it under a microscope, we would be amazed at how complex its structure is.
