The Top 5 Ways To Get The Best Results From Your Laser Hair Removal Journey

We want you to get the best results possible, so we have put together 5 of the best ways we believe you can maximise your journey here with us at Surrey Laser Clinic.

How Does Pain Free Laser Hair Removal Work?

This type of laser hair removal typically uses a specially designed device that emits gentle pulses of light energy that target and destroy the hair follicle without causing any significant damage to the surrounding skin tissue.

Patients typically describe the procedure as being painless due to the Moveo technology. Pain-free laser hair removal can be used on almost any part of the body, including the face, legs, arms, underarms, bikini line, and back.

After the initial laser hair removal treatment, the patient may experience some mild redness or swelling, which should subside within a few hours.

How can we make laser hair removal more effective?

  1. Preparation

a) Avoid sun exposure and tanning for at least two weeks prior to the laser hair removal session. This is because the tanned skin may absorb more energy from the laser, which could increase the risk of burns and other complications. Lower settings may also be required, or we may need to skip sessions to wait for the tan to fade thus decreasing the effectiveness of the results.

b) Shave the treatment area: The hair in the treatment area should be shaved at least 12 to 24 hours before the session. This helps the laser energy target the hair follicle without damaging the skin around it.

c). Avoid waxing or plucking: Do not wax or pluck any hair from the treatment area for four to six weeks before the laser hair removal session. These hair removal methods remove the hair from the root, which could interfere with the effectiveness of the laser treatment.

d) Don’t wear makeup or lotion: Do not wear any makeup or lotion on the treatment area on the day of the laser hair removal session. This will help the laser easily target the hair follicles.

2) Technique-all our laser technicians are trained by Lynton medical specialists. We leave no stone unturned in ensuring all our procedures are kept up to date, the correct settings are always used. The way the laser is used is very important, we never want to rush the treatment to treat all the hair follicles and get maximum coverage.

3) Skin type-thanks to the new Moveo technology with the Motus AY machine, all skin types can be treated with this cutting-edge technology. This is because the laser targets the melanin pigment in the hair follicle. Traditionally this was only suitable for lighter skin types due to less melanin and therefore less risk of damager as the technician can be more precise. However, advances in technology have made laser hair removal possible for a wider range of skin and hair types, including those with darker skin tones. It is always recommended to consult a qualified professional to determine if laser hair removal is right for you.

4) After care-it is important to look after your skin post treatment in order to allow it to heal and get the best results long term. Here are some of the steps we advise:

a) Avoiding sun exposure: You should avoid direct sun exposure for at least a week after the treatment. If you have to go outside during this time, make sure to cover the treated area and use a sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher.

b)  Avoiding heat: After the treatment, your skin may be sensitive to heat. You should avoid hot showers, saunas, and hot tubs for at least 24 hours after the treatment.

c) Moisturising: Keeping your skin moisturised after the treatment can help prevent dryness and irritation. Use a gentle moisturizer on the treated area twice a day. You can ask about our Alumier products in house.

d) Avoiding tight clothing: Tight clothing can irritate the skin after laser hair removal. Choose loose-fitting clothing for the first few days after the treatment.

e) Refraining from shaving and waxing: Do not shave or wax the treated area for at least two weeks after the treatment.

f) Applying ice packs: Applying ice packs to the treated area can help reduce any swelling or discomfort.

5) On going care– it is important to remember that new hair follicles can develop over the years, top ups annually will keep them at bay and prevent them from developing in to visible hairs giving you that smooth look all year round. Talk to us about our maintenance packages for a discount.
