Your practitioner will complete a detailed consultation to establish skin type and the type of hair which is to be treated, and to ascertain your improvement goals. During this consultation your options will be discussed in detail before any treatment commences, all of which will determine the treatment plan most suited to you.
Before treatment, the hair and skin type will be assessed and recorded.
The treatment will commence once the area to be treated is prepared, then the laser applicator is placed on the skin where a short pulse of light is released, targeting many hair follicles simultaneously. The applicator is then moved to the neighbouring area of skin and the process is repeated until the entire area is treated.
Treatments can take as little as 10 minutes to an hour, depending on the size of the treatment area. The entire body can be treated in under 90 minutes!
It is mandatory for the patient and practitioner to wear protective eyewear.
The treatment is completed with the application of a soothing gel.
How does laser hair removal work?
The precisely controlled pulses of laser light energy are delivered to affected areas on the skin surface, where it is absorbed by melanin, the pigment in the hair follicle. The light energy heats the pigment and effectively destroys the hair follicle without damaging the surrounding cells. The treatment affects the hair in the active growth phase only (this is also referred to as the anagen stage).
Why have the procedure?
Laser hair removal/reduction is the most effective method for achieving permanent results.
The laser treatment is also extremely effective in treating ingrown hairs and skin pigmentation caused by ingrown hairs with a significant visible improvement in the reduction of raised, red and inflamed hair follicles. The skin will appear healthier and smoother after just a few sessions.
It is known that certain medical condition and prescribed medications may cause or contribute to excessive hair growth. Laser hair removal/reduction treatments are a key tool in managing the concerns a person may be experiencing and can be essential to assist in regaining one’s confidence. Typical medical clients for laser hair removal/reduction are patients referred by their GP or suffering from: Hormonal Imbalance, PCOS – Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, Cushing’s Syndrome, Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia or Hirsutism.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of laser treatment sessions required to successfully remove/reduce unwanted hair will vary from person to person. The hair type, skin type, hormonal implications, use of medications and the location on your body are all important contributing factors.
Only hair that is actively growing is affected during the treatment. Therefore, a series of treatments are required. Treatments are conducted every 4 – 8 weeks, depending on the area treated, until a satisfactory result is achieved.
In general, clients typically require ten laser treatment sessions to achieve the optimal hair removal/reduction results. There is simply no comparison to a lifetime of shaving or waxing commitments.
The density of the hair reduces following each treatment session and clients often experience noticeable reduction of their hair following just three or four treatment sessions.
How quickly will I begin to see results?
During a laser treatment procedure, the hair follicles blood supply is constricted. In the following sessions it becomes significantly difficult for the hair follicle to produce a hair, thus reducing the density and volume of the unwanted hair.
The hair follicles are damaged by the heat of the laser however the hairs remain in the follicles. The treated dead hairs shed after 1 – 3 weeks as the epidermis renews. During this period the hairs will seem to ‘grow’ as they are pushed out by the new epidermis.
Clients often experience positive and noticeable reduction of their hair following just three or four treatment sessions. After each treatment the unwanted hair will continue to reduce until the optimal result is achieved.
How long will the results last?
Commencing a course of treatments our laser hair removal treatments are designed to permanently remove unwanted hair; however, this depends on many factors such as; medications and hormone influences.
