What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser permanently reduces unwanted body or facial hair. Laser is the most effective way to achieve long lasting hair reduction. Unlike precision ‘hair-by-hair’ treatments such as electrolysis, the laser treats many hair follicles at once. Large areas such as legs, arms, back and chest can be treated at one time. Most clients undertake 4-6 treatments to achieve optimal results of permanent hair reduction of 80% or greater.
Does laser hair removal hurt?
You can expect varying degrees of discomfort depending on the energy level used, skin type, hair type and area treated. Most clients describe the treatment as mildly uncomfortable. Amy will ensure your treatment is as comfortable as possible.
How does laser work?
Laser energy is absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in the hair and the light is transmitted down the hair shaft destroying the hair follicle. The laser can only destroy hair follicles in the active growth stage (Anagen phase) at the time of the treatment which is why a course of treatments is required.
How many treatments will I need?
On average, 4-6 treatments are required for optimal results of 80% hair reduction or greater. This number depends on several factors which are explained in detail during your free consultation.
Is it permanent?
If the treated hair has not returned for 12 months then it has been permanently removed. Re-growth can be affected by hormones and other biological factors which can vary from person to person.
Will laser hair removal get rid of ingrown hairs?
Laser can decrease the chance of experiencing ingrown hairs. When there is no hair in the follicle, there is less chance of an ingrown hair occurring.
What are the possible side effects?
Slight redness of the skin and mild swelling in the area can be expected after a treatment and can last up to 24 hours. In rare cases, the redness may last a few days and there could be some grazing or scabbing, which typically subsides over a short period. Adverse effects are usually heat related, and are only ever temporary.
What results can I expect from laser hair removal?
After your first treatment, you will notice a dramatic reduction in the density and thickness of hair in the treated area. Once you complete your treatment plan, you should expect long-term hair reduction.
