Remember when you were a teenager and shaving was exciting? With age, any novelty around shaving certainly wears off. Perhaps you moved on to waxing? At first this seems great too as you only have to have a treatment every six weeks. But fairly soon that starts to feel like there is only a matter of days between treatments too. Enter laser hair removal.
How does laser hair removal work?
As its name suggests, laser hair removal is a procedure to remove hair using a laser. Unlike waxing which pulls the hair out at the root, or shaving which simply cuts it off at skin level, the laser destroys the hair follicle’s ability to regrow without causing any injury or damage to the surface of your skin.
Where can laser hair removal be used?
Laser hair removal can be an effective way to provide long-lasting, and even permanent hair removal in areas including:
- Feet and toes
- Hands and fingers
- Stomach and snail trail
- And more!
We use a laser with a wide beam which means we can treat multiple hair follicles at once.
What are the benefits of laser hair removal?
If you suffer from rashes caused by shaving or waxing, you’re sure to love the silky-smooth results laser can achieve without irritating the skin. Further to this, the results you achieve are almost permanent, and can be easily maintained through occasional top-up treatments if needed. Laser hair removal pricing is also often cheaper than waxing, meaning you’ll save money thanks to the almost permanent nature of your results. Your laser treatment is also very quick and simple. Imagine going to have a lip, chin, underarms, legs and Brazilian wax; you’d expect your treatment to take at least 90 minutes. Laser treatment of the above areas takes less than 30 minutes.
Does laser hair removal hurt?
We often have people say they’ve heard laser hair removal is painful. While this may have been the case several years ago, we’re positive you’ll be pleasantly surprised at just how little pain you will experience. One description we’ve heard which we think is quite accurate is that it feels a little like a rubber band has been very lightly flicked against your skin. You may find that you experience some residual heat on your skin, particularly after your very first treatment; this won’t last too long and can be easily managed with a soothing product we recommend you use in conjunction with your laser hair removal treatment. Many people find their subsequent treatment are not at all painful, and say the treatment itself is a walk in the park when compared to waxing!
How many laser hair removal treatments will I need?
The number of treatments needed will vary from person to person, and is dependent on a range of factors such as the treatment location, and even hormones. Most cases require between six and 10 treatments, but you will notice a dramatic reduction in your hair regrowth right from the first treatment.
