Laser Hair Removal

Overview of the Laser Hair Removal Treatment

Laser hair removal is a non-invasive treatment designed to reduce the appearance of hair on the skin. It involves the use of pulsed waves of light that target the hair follicles. After a course of treatment, usually 5 to 10 sessions, hair will naturally fall out and become less visible in the targeted area. The procedure is usually pain-free and highly effective. Although the treatment does not completely cause hair to disappear, it is the best option for clients who want significant yet painless hair reduction and removal.

A Reliable, Pain-Free Method For Hair Removal

The process of laser hair removal takes a number of sessions. But the investment is often well worth the cost. It is almost entirely pain-free and effective after the course of treatment has been completed. Clients who undergo the non-invasive procedure often see results after 5 to 10 sessions. Both during and towards the end of the treatment plan, hair will fall out and become less noticeable. The surrounding skin tissue will not become damaged. However, there may be some redness, which soon disappears.

Safe & Effective Laser Treatment Targets Hair Follicles

The treatment involves the use of a diode laser device. This emits pulsed waves of light that target the melanin (otherwise known as the “pigment”) inside hair follicles that provides skin with its color. After a number of treatment sessions, the hair follicle will become destroyed and hair will become greatly reduced. Clients can often see hair falling out of the treated area after a number of sessions. The safe and effective procedure also ensures no tissue damage to the surrounding skin. In any case, the practitioner can add a “chill tip” to the laser to make the process almost entirely pain-free. Some clients report a minor soreness after treatment. But this soon disappears after a few days. The vast majority of clients have a safe, pain-free experience with laser hair removal.

The Most Cost-Effective & Non-Invasive Method For Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is one of the few options for body hair removal. It’s affordable, non-invasive, and relatively pain-free. The treatment works well for the vast majority of skin types and hair colors. All areas of the body can be targeted with little to zero side effects. Another popular alternative to laser hair removal is electrolysis treatment. This procedure uses electrical currents to target and destroy the hair follicles. Although this method is effective at completely removing hair from the body, it has its disadvantages. One drawback is the greater level of pain during treatment. The procedure can be quite uncomfortable for many people. The cost is also higher than laser hair removal. This is why the treatment is often the last port of call for people who want total hair removal.

Almost Entirely Pain-Free Treatment With Minimal Side Effects

Most clients who undergo laser hair removal encounter no pain. This is a key reason why laser hair removal is so popular. The non-invasive nature of the treatment means that no hospital admission is required. And no scarring or major skin blemishes occur. But for people who are worried about pain, a topical anesthetic gel can be applied to the skin before the procedure. This minimizes any minor discomfort and helps to soothe the skin. Clients having laser hair removal on more sensitive areas of the body may get mild soreness or redness, especially a few hours after treatment. However, this is often negligible and soon disappears after a few days.

Laser Hair Removal FAQ

How does the laser hair removal process work?

Laser hair removal works by using pulses of light to target hair follicles on the skin. The process is non-invasive and can be used to remove hair on most areas of the body. Although commonly known as laser hair removal, the device used to target the hair follicles emits waves of light. It does not emit a painful, traditional laser-like beam.

The laser hair removal process targets melanin within the hair follicles. The light from the laser penetrates the skin and kills the blood supply, preventing hair growth. The treatment can focus on a smaller area, or a larger area. This gives customers great value for money and a pain-free method to reduce hair growth.

Is laser hair removal temporary or permanent?

While laser hair removal does provide excellent results, these are not permanent. Having said that, the treatment does reduce the growth of hair by around 50% to 80%. For full hair removal, FDA certified electrolysis treatment is recommended. This involves the use of electrical currents to completely destroy the hair follicles.

Is the laser hair removal treatment painful?

The treatment is non-invasive and relatively pain-free. Although different people have varying levels of pain tolerance, the process is not uncomfortable or painful. There may be minor soreness or pain after treatment, especially if a sensitive area has been targeted. However, applying topical anesthetic cream up to an hour before treatment significantly limits pain and associated side effects.

What are typical side effects?

The side effects of laser hair removal are minimal. But some customers can experience soreness, redness, or swelling around the treatment area. In most cases, customers will not experience any side effects after a couple of days. In extremely rare cases, people can encounter skin discoloration. However, this is highly unusual.

Does hair grow back thicker after laser hair removal?

Hair thickness will lessen after approximately 5 to 10 treatment sessions. This is especially the case if the treatment is performed as recommended, on 4 to 6 week intervals. In terms of hair growing back thicker, this is possible but unlikely. The condition of paradoxical hypertrichosis can cause hair to grow back thicker after laser treatment. But this happens extremely rarely.

How many days after laser hair removal does the hair fall out?

Most clients find their hair begins to fall out after a couple of weeks. But the exact amount of time varies from person to person.

How many treatments are needed for laser hair removal?

The exact amount of treatment time necessary varies according to the patient, the skin type and color, hair color, and the area to be targeted. Most customers find they need around 5 to 10 sessions for maximum effect.

What type of equipment do you use?

We use a diode laser that is recognized as the industry standard and most effective device for laser hair removal. The laser equipment works for different skin types and provides a non-invasive, safe treatment option with excellent long-term results.

Clients Benefit From Results Within 5 to 10 Treatment Sessions

Treatment nearly always involves multiple sessions, typically 5 to 10 sessions. This depends on many factors, such as the area being treated, the type and color of skin, and the desired results. The majority of clients stagger their treatments over a period of time (usually 4 to 6 weeks). Towards the middle to the end of treatment, clients will experience noticeable results as hair falls out and becomes far less noticeable.
