All you need to know about laser hair removal

Laser Hair Removal

Considered laser hair removal but have a few questions ?

How many sessions will I need? 

Usually between 8-12 sessions will get you up to 90% reduction of hair growth, this is mostly dependant on the area. For instance, legs usually require 8 sessions whereas the face requires 12 and sometimes more. 

Which areas can I treat? 

Pretty much any area can be treated, as long as the is dark and thick enough. Lasers pick up on the pigment in the hair follicle, if it’s blond or too fine it is not suitable. Some of the most popular areas are legs, bikini & under arms for women and back, shoulders, chest & abs for men. 

Are all skin types suitable for laser hair removal? 

Yes. We have 2 different lasers which cater for all. Darker skin is more sensitive to the laser and therefore requires the Nd:YAG laser. 

Does it hurt? 

Not really. Some say its like a hot pricking sensation. Others compare it to a slight flicking of an elastic band. It’s not painless, however if you’ve ever had a wax (which most of us have) it is extremely bearable by comparison. 

How many sessions until I start to see results? 

After 1 session your hair growth will slow significantly. You will already notice the hair thinning out and becoming less coarse after 2-3 sessions. After 5-6 sessions expect a significant reduction with no growth for up to 6 weeks. After 8 sessions you should be seeing 80-90% reduction. 

Will I need top up sessions or does it last forever? 

Laser achieves permanent reduction. Yes, you may need top up sessions in the future. As your hormones change your body can produce new hair growth, however that’s easily handled with a top up session every now and then.
