Laser Hair Removal
What is laser hair removal?Laser hair removal is using a highly concentrated beam of light that pulses for a fraction of a second. The light is converted to heat (like the sun) and the hair follicle (containing pigment) absorbs the heat from the laser and damages the hair shaft and bulb preventing the hair from growing back. Think of wearing a black t-shirt in the sun, it is going to absorb more heat than a white shirt. The same applies to a strand of hair. The hair follicle has more pigment than your skin and will abbsorb the heat from the laser protecting your skin from the heat.
Does laser hair removal actually work?Yes it does. With each treatment you will notice around 20% less hair regrowth. Your hair has three growth cycles anagen, catagen and telogen. When the hair is in the anagen phase it has the most pigment in it and the heat from the laser is able to destroy the follicle. Only 20% of your hair is in the anagen phase at a time.
What colour hair does laser hair removal work on?The laser needs to see colour (pigment) therefore, white, grey, blonde and red hairs cannot be treated.
How long does each session take?Treatment times can take anywhere from 5 minutes (underarms) to 30 min (full legs) Treatments are fast and effecient with the high speed duet.
How many sessions are usually needeed?On average 6-8 sessions are necessary. However, everyone is different, some people may require additional sessions while some may require less.
How do I prepare before my appointment?Shave areas to be treated the day before your treatment. Do not pluck, wax, sugar or use tanning beds 4-6 weeks prior to your treatment. Do not moisturize or wear makeup the day of your treatment.
What to expect after my treatment?After your treatment you may notice some redness and swelling, this is normal and will resolve. Avoid hot tubs, hot baths and working out for 24 hours as it will cause additional irritation. Always wear sunscreen 6 weeks after your treatment if area is exposed to sunlight.
How often can I get laser done?Ensure you book your next appointment as suggested, every 4 weeks for you face and 6-8 weeks for below your shoulders to ensure the anagen growth cycle is targeted.
