How does Laser Hair removal work?
Laser uses selected wavelengths of low energy light rapidly pulsed onto the skin to gently heat the target hair follicles to cause terminal damage and prevent hair regrowth. Endorsed by leading medical experts the SMARTDiode laser is safe and highly effective in the treatment of permanent hair reduction.
How long does the treatment take?
The treatment is quick and effective but length of time will depend on treatment areas. The treatment applicator is swept back and forth across the designated area in a quick motion allowing the low light energy pulse into the skin.
No, laser hair removal is gentle and comfortable to your skin. During treatment you may experience a gentle warming of the skin, however the cooling applicator is capable of 4c which ensures complete comfort even in the most sensitive areas.
How long does the hair have to be?
The hair can be kept however you want in between treatments so long as only shaving is used and must be close shaved before the treatment session.
Can you guarantee 100% that you can get rid of all hair?
No-one can ever give you a 100% guarantee that no hair regrowth will occur following Laser hair removal. We would advise caution before using any clinic that claims otherwise. However we stand behind our experience of permanently reducing the hairs we treat.
What will I see after the treatment?
The hair follicles are damaged by heat but the hairs remain in the follicles. The dead hairs shed after 1 – 3 weeks as the epidermis renews. During this period the hairs will seem to ‘grow’ as they are pushed out by the new epidermis.
All skin types can be treated with our laser! The SMARTDiode technology of low energy pulses is successful in treating both dark and fair skin types and for both male and females. Fair hair however contains less melanin so is harder to treat. Grey/white hair has no melanin so is not suitable for treatment.
How many treatments will I need?
We recommend a minimum of 6 treatments, with some hair types requiring more. The average for a successful program is 8 – 10 treatments. It is so important to complete all treatments for optimum results.
How old do I have to be to have laser hair removal?
18 years or older, as under 18 your body is undergoing lots of hormonal changes and may mean that the treatment will be ineffective as the body hair may grow back.
