How do lasers work?
The laser beam consists of a single wavelength of light which selectively targets and removes hair shafts. Light from the machine targets the pigment in the hair follicle. The light laser is absorbed into the hair follicle then converted to heat, which permanently destroys it at its root so it cannot ever grow back. At the same time, the system provides advanced cooling to the skin’s surface to protect it and improve comfort.
Are there any side effects?
Even laser hair removal does have some risks, including excess pigmentation or inadequate effect. In poorly trained hands or with inferior equipment, complications such as burns and scars can occur. Therefore, it is vital that you have your procedure in a medically supervised clinic by a skilled and trained operator and using up-to-date laser equipment. Laser hair removal should not be performed over fake tan, solarium or sun-tanned skin as this causes a risk of complications. When performed with skill, there should be minimal discomfort following a laser treatment however some patients may notice minor temporary swelling or redness immediately after their procedure.
How many treatments do I need?
All hair removal lasers can only target and remove hairs in a particular phase of their growth cycle. Therefore, at any one treatment session, certain hairs will be dormant and not able to be treated. Because of this, multiple treatments are usually necessary to ensure all hair follicles are eventually caught at the right time in their cycle and removed by treatment. Most people benefit best from 6 to 8 treatments, depending on hair thickness, the size of the area and the hair’s growth cycle.
What does it feel like?
Because laser hair removal uses heat to destroy the hair follicle, during the actual treatment some people may experience a sensation that is often described as the snap of a rubber band against their skin as the hair is removed. Our special cooling system minimises any discomfort.
