Top 10 Things You Need To Know About Laser Hair Removal

Did you know that laser hair removal is a popular treatment for those who want to get rid of unwanted body hair? Beyond its lasting effectiveness, laser hair removal offers a gateway to smooth skin by eliminating ingrown hairs and irritations caused by shaving or waxing, and it helps lighten areas that become darker due to friction. If you've never had a session, I'll tell you 10 things you need to know about laser hair removal before scheduling your appointment!

1. How does laser hair removal work?

Laser hair removal works by targeting and damaging the hair follicles, where hair growth originates, to inhibit or slow down its regrowth. The laser focuses on the hair root's colour to identify and disable the follicles.

This method is highly advanced and efficient for removing unwanted hair from areas like the armpits, legs, groin, intimate areas, and beard. Our diode laser hair removal technique is specifically designed to achieve over 90% hair reduction, ensuring long-lasting results.

2. What are laser hair removal benefits?

Some of the benefits are reducing the chances of getting folliculitis and ingrown hairs that can be uncomfortable, lightening the skin, enjoying the freedom from constant shaving, avoiding the sagging that can be caused by waxing and more.

3. Is laser hair removal suitable for all skin types?

Yes, laser hair removal can be performed on various skin types, but results may vary. The laser identifies the hair by its colour, so the greater the contrast between the skin and the hair, the easier it is to target. For this reason, it's important to book an appointment for a patch test so that the professional can create the ideal plan for you.

4. Is it worth getting laser hair removal?

Absolutely! Considering both the benefits it provides and the financial aspect, you'll find that despite the initial investment in a laser hair removal course, you won't have to keep spending the same amount in the long run.

5. How many sessions for laser hair removal?

The number of sessions varies according to the size of the area, the amount of hair, and each individual's skin type. On average, most clients achieve optimal results with 6-9 sessions. For long-lasting maintenance, we recommend a yearly touch-up session. For more precise information, schedule a consultation with us.

6. How long does each session take?

Sessions usually are quite quick, varying according to the size of the area. But we can say that the average time is around 20 to 30 minutes.

7. Are laser hair removal permanent?

Laser hair removal brings about a significant and long-lasting reduction in hair growth. However, depending on the area and individual hormonal changes, occasional maintenance might be needed.

8. Are laser hair removal painful?

It's not extremely painful, but it doesn't go unnoticed either. The sessions are quick, and the slight discomfort from the laser ends up being insignificant compared to the benefits obtained.

9. Will laser hair removal help folliculitis?

Yes! Laser hair removal helps treat folliculitis and other skin irritations caused by the inflammation of hair follicles. By reducing hair growth, it also decreases inflammation.

10. Do I have to do a patch test for laser hair removal?

If you are unsure if you are suitable for laser hair removal, we offer a patch test. This is a small test that we do on a small area of your skin to see how your skin reacts to the laser. It is important to do a patch test before your first treatment, as it allows us to test your skin for any sensitivity from the laser. Learn more about patch test.
