It is always exciting but potentially for some nerve racking when considering whether to have laser hair removal. Hopefully we can outline below what to expect and why there is no need to be nervous.
Laser hair removal works with light being absorbed by melanin, the pigment in the hair follicle without damaging the surrounding cells.
What to expect?
Laser hair removal is a non-invasive treatment. The lasers we use are pain-free so during the session you won’t feel anything. We use the revolutionary Motus AY which has a pain free moveo setting.
Afterwards, it’s rare that you’ll experience any symptoms but we do advise that you avoid exposing the skin to sunlight until after your treatment course has finished. Appropriate sunscreen is also advised because your skin will be more sensitive to any sun exposure, no matter the weather.
How does it feel?
The laser we use works by heating the hair follicle up and breaking it down. This means the hair cannot grow back in the follicle, causing long-lasting results and meaning you will no longer waste time shaving or waxing.
What does the treatment include?
Prior to treatment, you will have a consultation in which medical history is taken to confirm suitability for treatment. This is also a good opportunity for you to ask any questions you may have.
Before treatment commences you must provide written consent and a small patch test will be carried out.
How many treatments are necessary.
We create a personalised package guided by your skin & hair type to achieve the best results. Only hair that is actively growing is affected, therefore a series of treatments are needed. Treatment is conducted every 4-8 weeks, depending on the area treated, until results are clear.
The required number of treatments varies. However, we will guide you through this process every step of the way. Typically 8 or more treatments are needed for optimum results.
