Laser hair removal is a safe, long-lasting and affordable treatment that can permanently remove unwanted hair.
The treatment uses a laser to remove hair from the root. It works by targeting melanin in the hair follicle, which absorbs laser energy and heats up the hair shaft and destroys the follicle so it can’t grow new hair. The procedure takes between six and eight treatments to work, depending on how dark your hair is and how long it’s been since you last shaved or waxed.
Laser hair removal is commonly used on women who want to get rid of unwanted facial or body hair, but it can be used on any area of the body where there are many dark hairs growing in one area (such as underarms or legs).
The procedure is only suitable for certain areas of your body and depending on your skin type, some areas will be more suitable than others. It’s also important to note that it won’t work on all types of hair or skin colours; some lasers work better on darker skin tones than light ones, for example.
You may be wondering why you should choose laser hair removal treatment. Here are some of the benefits:
Laser hair removal is effective. The main benefit of laser hair removal treatment over other solutions is that it offers a permanent solution to unwanted hair. There is no need for repeat treatments as with electrolysis or waxing, meaning that you can get your desired results in one go. It also reduces the amount of time required for maintenance treatments compared to waxing or plucking out individual hairs at home.
It’s proven to permanently remove hair from 90% of people who take it. You can expect to see results in as little as four treatments, with each session lasting 15 minutes or less.
Laser hair removal is safe. The laser light used in this procedure targets pigment in the follicle while leaving surrounding tissue healthy and unharmed. Side effects are rare but include redness, swelling and pain at the treatment site that subside within hours or days after treatment. Laser hair removal is safe for all skin types except tanned skin. If you have tanned skin, we recommend you wait until your tan fades before having laser hair removal done for best results.
Laser hair removal is quick and easy! It only takes a few minutes per area being treated, so it’s a convenient way to get rid of unwanted facial or body hair without having to spend hours shaving or waxing again and again!
