Additional Information

How does it work?

The laser hair removal procedure uses a beam of light that your hair pigment absorbs making it heat up quickly. The instant flash of heat damages the hair follicle, preventing future growth – but will not cause you pain.

After treatment, your hair follicles in the growth phase are damaged and are permanently unable to create new hairs, or will produce small, thin hairs that are basically invisible. Eventually, over a few scheduled sessions, all hair follicles in the treatment area will be exposed during their growth period.

Laser hair removal is typically most effective on those with dark hair. Patients with very light or grey hair are not ideal. There are a range of deciding factors that will determine if you are a good candidate and will be assessed during your consultation.

Benefits of Treatment:

  • Lasting results

FAQ's

How to prepare for my first session?

Ahead of your session the target area will need to be freshly shaven, up to the day before. Do not wax or pluck hair between your sessions.

What to expect?

At the beginning of your procedure you will be given special glasses which will shield your eyes from any hazardous reflected laser light. To start the treatment, a handpiece will be maneuvered over the treatment area sending energy into your skin. You may feel mild discomfort to no discomfort during the treatment depending on the area treated.

Patients describe a range of sensations during treatment from tingling to the snapping of a rubber band.

 

How soon will I see results?

Because the skin cycles through three stages, there is no way one laser treatment can remove 100% of the hair but it is possible to reduce hair growth by up to 85% in one session. 

Multiple treatment sessions will be needed to affect all unwanted hair.

How many sessions are recommended?

Depending on the amount of hair, the area, skin colour and hair thickness, the number of sessions varies. Generally, 4-6 treatments will be needed after taking into account your hair and the target area. 

*Treatment sessions will be spaced out depending on your target area. Typically the face, arms, underarms and the bikini line are spaced 4-6 weeks apart. The chest, back, and legs are typically 8-10 weeks apart.

Downtime and discomfort?

During the treatment, most clients only feel a slight “snap” like a rubber band hitting the treatment area. The discomfort is significantly less compared to waxing.

Regular daily activities may be continued immediately after your treatment session.
