Laser FAQs

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

This treatment uses concentrated laser energy to target the hair follicles in the treatment area. Laser heating damages the follicle, causing current hair to shed and making it difficult for future hair to grow. The treatment leaves surrounding skin and tissue intact, minimising discomfort and downtime after the procedure.

Is Laser Hair Removal Safe?

Absolutely, laser hair removal is safe when it is performed by an experienced, qualified provider. The laser targets only the hair follicle, leaving the surrounding skin unharmed. You may experience some redness, but this should subside within 24 hours. The devices we use has a long track record of safety and success.

Does Laser Hair Removal Hurt?

There can be some discomfort during the procedure. For sensitive areas, such as the bikini or the underarms, or for the treatment of large areas such as the full legs or back. 

How Long Is The Recovery Time After Treatment?

After treatment, you should be able to resume your normal activities. The treatment area may be red and tender, similar to a sunburn. It is critical to protect vulnerable skin from sun exposure during the healing process to avoid possible complications and damage.

When Will I See Results?

You might start to see some shedding within days of your first treatment session. However, due to the growth cycle of hair, clients require a series of appointments to achieve a full outcome. Those results will become evident within a few days after your last session.

How Long Does The Results Last?

The results from Laser Hair Removal treatment are permanent in most cases. Since hair grows in different cycles at different times, it takes a series of treatment sessions to eliminate all the hair in a single area. However, once the results are achieved, the hair reduction is long-lasting and even permanent for some clients. Others may find that a touch-up session every year or two will keep them silky smooth.

What Results Will I See?

The treatment can give permanent hair reduction of up to 90%. The darker your unwanted hair, the better it draws the energy of the laser beam to it, giving greater hair reduction. Your therapist will discuss your hair type and the results you can expect to see in your consultation.
