Unwanted hair can be embarrassing, inconvenient and a reoccurring beauty routine for men as well as women. Treating unwanted hair with laser is virtually pain free, a safe treatment which can effectively reduce hair on the body and face.
How does hair laser removal work?
The dark pigment in the hair follicle known as melanin absorbs the laser light energy. This light creates heat and can be targeted hair follicles at their growth stage. Darker and coarser hairs respond better to laser treatment because it has more melanin. White, blond, grey, and light red hair do not respond well to laser treatment because they have less natural pigmentation and melanin.
Before your first treatment you will have a free initial consultation and patch test with our qualified and experienced therapists where you will be asked several questions about your medical status and conditions, any medication you are taking, sun exposure and prior treatments.
We highly recommend that you discuss the laser removal process with your doctor if you have any medical conditions.
What results can I expect?
We use the most advanced lasers, Cynosure Elite+ as you progress through your treatments to bring the best results for all skin types. Hair follicles that successfully absorb the laser will never grow back. Hair follicles that are dormant or reactive with age or hormonal changes may reappear but will be lighter, finer and fewer.
How Many Treatments will I need?
Multiple treatments are needed (minimum 6-8) because only hair in the active growth phase can be affected by the laser. To get best result treatments should be in regular intervals. We would recommend every 4 weeks to remove for facial hair and every 6-8 weeks for the body hair.
However, the number of sessions varies for induvial.
Does laser hurt?
Laser hair removal virtually pain free. Sometimes its described as feeling like the flick of an elastic band.
What happens after the treatment?
Your skin slightly get red, goose bumps and sensitivity in the area treated are completely normal and generally settle down within 24 hours. A few days after the treatment the hair will start to grow back. Within the next 2 to 3 weeks the hair that was damaged by the laser will fall out. Over a course of treatments, the hair growth will slow, becoming thinner and patchier. Protecting your skin from the sun is essential.
