Laser Hair Removal

WHAT IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL?

Laser hair removal is a medical procedure that uses a concentrated beam of light (laser) to remove unwanted hair.

During laser hair removal, a laser emits a light that is absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in the hair. The light energy is converted to heat, which damages the tube-shaped sacs within the skin (hair follicles) that produce hairs. This inhibits or delays future hair growth.

Although laser hair removal effectively delays hair growth for long periods, it usually doesn’t result in permanent hair removal in minimum sessions. Multiple laser hair removal treatments are needed for initial hair removal, and maintenance treatments may be needed depending on the area being treated. Laser hair removal is most effective for people who have dark hair, but it can be successfully used on all skin types.

8-10 sessions are recommended for clients who have never had laser hair removal before.

IS IT PAINFUL?

ARE THERE ANY RISKS INVOLVED?

Laser Hair Removal is a safe procedure with minimal risks. Scarring, infections and burns are extremely rare if precautions are measured by both the client and therapist pre and post treatments.

• Avoid excessive exercising and sweating before and after your treatment.
• Avoid saunas, hot baths, or spas for 48 hours before and after your treatment.

• Ensure to exfoliate the skin in between sessions.

WHAT WILL MY SKIN LOOK LIKE AFTER THE TREATMENT?

Immediately post treatment the skin may appear red and may feel sunburnt. The redness can last anywhere from 24-48hrs depending on the depth of treatment. Day 3-5 you can experience a tight, dry sensation with potential mild to moderate flaking. If you experience small red bumps beneath the skin an antihistamine can be taken.

HOW OFTEN CAN I BE TREATED?

Laser Hair Removal is recommended to be performed every 4 weeks in the initial stages of your journey when treating the body. Other areas that we categorise as hormonal are recommended to treat every 2-4 weeks. As your hairs thin out and reduce, your therapist may extend your appointment visits to every 6-8 weeks. After your initial 10 sessions, your will then be considered at your maintenance stage where you will only require sessions once every 6-12 months.
