WHAT IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL?
Laser hair removal is a clinically verified cosmetic procedure for the safe elimination of unwanted facial and body hair using laser technology. Hair naturally grows in areas predetermined by your genetics, but whether it remains fine or thick, light or dark, is within your control.
This treatment delivers a semi-permanent decrease in hair count, backed by extensive research, rigorous testing, and proven to be highly effective. It is, by a considerable margin, our most sought-after procedure for achieving permanent reduction and removal of undesirable hair
HOW DOES THE PROCEDURE WORK?
The process commences with a brief consultation, which includes a patch test on the desired treatment area. This helps us customize the treatment and laser settings to meet your specific requirements. The practitioner will use the laser device in a smooth, gliding, and cooling manner to safely, comfortably, and effectively eliminate hair across all skin types.
Laser hair removal employs laser light pulses to selectively target the melanin (color) within the hair follicles. The pigment inside the hair follicle absorbs the laser’s light beam, a process that damages the follicle and significantly reduces future growth. The surrounding skin remains unharmed, as the light is absorbed solely by the hair follicle.
POST TREATMENT INFORMATION
Following the treatment, the targeted hair requires time to pass through the skin, typically shedding within one to three weeks. It’s common for hair to still appear to grow during this period, which does not indicate treatment failure. Hair removal lasers can solely affect hairs in the active growth stage (anagen phase), which necessitates multiple treatments scheduled at intervals to address the remaining follicles.
This is also why your initial results may seem somewhat uneven. Immediately after the treatment, your skin might display slight redness and a raised or bumpy texture over the treated follicles. This typically subsides within an hour or two, although individuals with heightened sensitivity to the treatment may experience it for a longer duration. As the body gradually processes out the hairs over a few weeks, some clients report a tingling sensation in the area. The treatment is safe and highly effective.
