Laser Hair Removal Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING LASER HAIR REMOVAL TREATMENT?


Our laser machine has a small handpiece which is used to deliver an intense but gentle burst of energy onto targeted areas of the skin. Therapeutic heat then removes unwanted hair.




IS YOUR LASER SUITABLE FOR DARK SKIN?


Yes! Our Diode laser machine can be used on all skin types. We use a Diode laser and just like the Nd:YAG laser our Diode laser gives safe and effective results for lighter and darker skin tones (Fitzpatrick types I–VI) due to their use of wavelengths that penetrate more deeply into the skin, reducing the amount of energy absorbed by the epidermis relative to the hair follicle. Other laser hair removal treatments don’t cater to all skin types




HOW LONG WILL MY LASER TREATMENT TAKE?


A treatment can take as little as a few minutes to as long as an hour, depending on the area that you're treating. For example, both legs can usually be treated in as few as 15 minutes & underarms usually takes 5 minutes.




DOES LASER HAIR REMOVAL HURT?


There can be some mild discomfort during laser hair removal, this discomfort passes very quickly and is minimised by our cooling tip. The sensation is often described as having an elastic band pinged against the skin. The heat only hits the hair not the entire skin like waxing does, so most clients find laser a lot less painful and faster per session than waxing! As your sessions go on we destroy more hair so it will become less discomforting!




HOW MANY SESSIONS WILL I NEED?


Usually a package of 6 – 8 sessions is required to achieve full hair removal. This is because hair grows in three stages:
Anagen (the growth stage). Hair is thickest and darkest, so laser treatments are most effective.
Catagen (the transitional stage). The hair begins to loosen from its follicle.
Telogen (the shedding stage). The hair falls out to make room for new growth.

The hairs on your body are not always at the same stage, so you’ll need to undergo a few treatments, an average of six weeks apart, to catch them all in the growth stage.




IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL PERMANENT?


Most clients will get up to 80 % hair reduction with the recommended treatment package and top up treatments as long as the interval is maintained.




CAN I REMOVE MY HAIR IN BETWEEN MY LASER SESSIONS?


Yes of course! However you can only remove your hair by shaving! Do NOT wax or use hair removal cream




MY HAIR IS REALLY THICK AND DARK, WILL I NEED A LOT MORE SESSIONS?


No, the thicker and darker the hair the better for laser! If you have hormonal hair you will still see great results, but more frequent top-ups will be needed.




HOW DO I PREPARE FOR MY LASER HAIR REMOVAL TREATMENTS?


For about six weeks prior to treatment, you should avoid plucking, electrolysis or waxing however you can shave. On the day of your treatment, skin should be clean-shaven and thoroughly cleansed of any makeup, creams, oils, topical anesthetics or self-tanning products. Apply suncscreen (SPF 50) before your treatment.
Do not expose the treatment area to sunlight or tanning booth light prior to or immediately after treatment.




WHAT CAN I EXPECT AFTER MY TREATMENT?


A cool compress may be applied for additional comfort after your treatment. Any redness or swelling should resolve in a few hours.




CAN I TAN BETWEEN SESSIONS?


Do not use sunbeds if you are having laser hair removal it can increase chances of side effects. Fake tan can be used up to 3 weeks prior to the next session but must all be removed or we will have to rebook your appointment. If you tan in the sun you will have to exfoliate the skin you are having treated and re book for a skin test. You must be at your natural skin tone for every session. If you tan easily, you need to be more cautious as it can affect the frequency of your treatments and therefore the results.




WHAT IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL?


Laser hair removal is a long-lasting, if not permanent form of hair removal using lasers to target and destroy hair follicles, meaning nothing can grow from there anymore.




HOW DOES LASER HAIR REMOVAL WORK?


The laser targets multiple hair follicles in about a fraction of a second The laser ensures the hair follicles are permanently destroyed so the hair growth reduces and eventually does not grow back again The laser machine that we use has a specially designed cooling tip, meaning as the heat hits your skin the heat is counteracted by the very cold tip as it moves around your skin
