Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal - what is it?
In a laser hair removal process highly concentrated light energy is focused into individual hair follicles, killing them one at a time so that new hair can no longer grow from the dead follicles.
Is it painful?
Laser hair removal is far less painful than waxing or epilating. Most patients find the pain tolerable and equate the pain with tiny pin pricks. For clients who are particularly sensitive to pain, the therapist can apply a topical anesthetic cream.
What happens during the treatment?
Once you have been comfortably settled in in the treatment room, our therapist will provide you with a pair of protective eye shields.
The treatment will then begin during which the laser applicator will begin delivering blasts of light on the skin. This will feel similar to rubber bands snapping against your skin. After the treatment is over, the therapist will advise you to apply a cooling gel or ointment to cool and moisturise your skin. You will also need to keep the treated area covered with clothing and wear sunscreen for at least 24 hours after treatment.
When can I expect to see results?
Most clients can expect to see a reduction of 50-80% of hair growth after 4-6 treatments. The hair that remains will become thinner, lighter, softer, and may grow more slowly.
