Many people report a significant boost in confidence after laser hair removal. Being free from unwanted hair can make you feel more comfortable and confident in your own skin.

Laser hair removal works by using a concentrated beam of light (laser) that is absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in the hair. The light energy is converted to heat, which damages the hair follicles, inhibiting or delaying future hair growth.

While laser hair removal significantly reduces hair growth, it isn’t 100% permanent. However, when hair does grow back, it’s often finer, lighter, and less noticeable.

The number of sessions needed varies depending on the individual and the area being treated. On average, it takes 4 to 6 sessions to achieve optimal results.

After your session of Laser Hair Removal, it’s important to be prepared for a few common post-treatment effects:

Skin Sensitivity: It’s quite normal for your skin to be slightly sensitive immediately after laser hair removal. You might experience a sensation like a mild sunburn. This sensitivity typically subsides within a few hours to a couple of days. To alleviate any discomfort, you can apply a soothing aloe vera gel to the treated area.

Hairs Still Present: Laser hair removal doesn’t instantly remove the hair; rather, it works by damaging the hair follicles, which slows down hair growth. The treated hairs may take up to one week to naturally shed from the follicles. You can help this process along by gently exfoliating the treated area with a mild exfoliant or a loofah but be gentle to avoid irritating your skin.

Avoid Sun Exposure: It’s crucial to protect the treated area from sun exposure for a few weeks after your laser hair removal session. Your skin will be more sensitive to UV rays, and exposure to sunlight can increase the risk of skin irritation and pigmentation changes. If you need to go outside, apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher and wear protective clothing.

Follow Post-Treatment Instructions: Your therapist will provide you with specific post-treatment instructions. It’s essential to follow these guidelines carefully to ensure the best results and minimize potential side effects.

Yes, when performed by a certified professional, laser hair removal is safe. The lasers are designed to target only the hair follicles, leaving the surrounding skin unharmed.

The pain level varies from person to person and depends on the area being treated. Some people compare the sensation to a rubber band snapping against the skin. Topical numbing creams can be used to minimise discomfort.

Yes, advancements in technology have made laser hair removal safe and effective for individuals with a wider range of skin tones. However, it’s important to consult with a professional to determine the best laser type for your skin.

Preparing for your laser hair removal treatment is essential to ensure its effectiveness and minimize potential side effects. Here are some steps to follow before your session:

Avoid Sun Exposure: Avoid excessive sun exposure and tanning for at least four to six weeks before your laser hair removal session. If you must be in the sun, use broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher and wear protective clothing.

Avoid Tanning Products: Don’t use self-tanning products, tanning beds, or spray tans in the weeks leading up to your treatment. These can affect the colour of your skin and make the treatment less effective.

Shave the Area: You should shave the treatment area the day before or on the day of your appointment. Shaving ensures that the laser energy is primarily absorbed by the hair follicles and not by the hair above the skin’s surface. However, do not wax, pluck, or use hair removal creams, as these methods remove the hair follicle, making laser hair removal ineffective.

Makeup-Free Skin: Ensure the treatment area is clean and free of makeup, lotions, and creams on the day of your appointment.

Avoid Sun Exposure: Protect the treated area from direct sunlight and UV exposure for at least four to six weeks after the treatment. This is crucial to prevent skin damage and pigmentation changes. If you need to go outside, use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher and wear protective clothing.

Keep the area cool: If you experience any redness or discomfort after the treatment, you can apply a cool compress or ice pack wrapped in a cloth to the area. This can help reduce inflammation and soothe the skin.

Avoid Hot Baths and Showers: For the first 24-48 hours after your treatment, avoid hot baths, showers, saunas, and hot tubs. Refrain from activities that may cause excessive sweating, such as vigorous exercise or hot yoga, for 24-48 hours after your session. Sweat can irritate the treated skin.

Skip Exfoliation: Avoid using harsh exfoliants, scrubs, or loofahs on the treated area for about a week after your session. Exfoliating too soon can irritate the skin. After a week, you can gently exfoliate to help the treated hairs shed.

No Plucking or Waxing: Do not pluck, wax, or use hair removal creams on the treated area between sessions. These methods remove the hair follicle, which is the target for laser hair removal. Shaving is the only acceptable method for hair removal between sessions.

If you experience any unusual or prolonged side effects, such as excessive redness, blistering, or signs of infection, contact your laser technician or dermatologist promptly.
