About our laser treatment

Final hair removal Amsterdam

At KNAP Institute in Amsterdam we work with the Harmony XL Pro laser. Every skin surface of the body can be caressed painlessly by treatment with our latest and safe SHR (Super Hair Removal) method. The laser gradually heats up the hair follicle so that the hair is released and no new hair can grow in the hair follicle.


When treating your skin, the beautician uses a mobile hand device that glides over the skin surface. Only the upper skin layer is heated. To prevent the skin from heating up too much, your skin is cooled immediately after treatment.


We also work with the HR laser, which is a method that is called stationary. This means that with 1 light pulse we reach the heat in the hair follicle to get rid of the hair permanently. This is therefore a different way than the SHR laser hair removal. This method can also be experienced as sensitive.

Before treatment

To get the best results with your laser hair removal we ask you:

  1. 30 days before the treatment not to sunbathe, use sunbeds or self-tanning creams / spray tan.
  2. 48 hours before your appointment to depilate the area to be treated.
  3. On the day of your appointment do not use make-up, perfume, deodorant, sun-block, cream, essential oils and other skin lotions.
  4. Changing the appointment if you are flu or have cold sores on the day of your laser treatment.

The operation of laser hair removal

The hair roots under the skin change when exposed to temperatures above 43 degrees. When hair removal in our clinic in Amsterdam by laser we heat your skin gradually to 45 degrees. The heat penetrates into the hair follicle under the skin surface. After approximately 8 laser hair removal treatments, the hair follicle closes and your skin is hair-free. To maintain this effect, we advise you to come by once a year to repeat the laser treatment.

The treatment

Your skin specialist applies the mobile laser device to the skin. During the treatment you can feel small taps on your skin. This does not experience people as painful. The skin is immediately cooled to prevent any irritation.

After treatment

After depilation with the laser you can resume your daily activities. The skin usually looks red and may feel irritated. Because your body responds to the treatment you can get goose bumps. After returning home we advise you to lubricate the skin with a vitamin E-cream or after sun.

Side effects

Blistering can occur in exceptional cases. This is similar to the reaction of the body to burnt skin. In this case, we advise you to lubricate the skin with an antibiotic ointment or vaseline.

Living rules

To achieve an optimal result, we recommend the following after treatment:

  • Avoid exposure of the skin to UV or the use of self-tanning cream for at least 2 weeks
  • Avoid picking or scratching the treated area
  • Avoid rough treatments of the treated area
  • Avoid very hot baths / showers / steam rooms / saunas
  • Do not use exfoliating creams or peels for at least 1 week
  • Do not practice rough sports for 24 to 48 hours
  • Do not wear tight clothing
  • Keep the treated area clean and dry
  • Hydrate the body by drinking plenty of water
  • Use sunscreen of at least 30+
  • Avoid exposure to UV between the treatments
