Is laser treatment dangerous?
We all have a current method of removing hair, whether it's shaving, plucking or waxing. Waxing, plucking and shaving is quick and not expensive, however these options are only temporary solutions. This is why many people choose to go with the path of laser hair removal. Frequent physical friction given to the skin through shaving and waxing can cause some to experience skin irritations, flaking and sensitivity. Laser treatment treats the skin with a lot more care. Laser therapy uses an intense bean of light to remove hair through a process which is known as photothermolysis. The heat of the laser is absorbed by the hair root causing the follicle to corrupt. This stops future hair growth. The darker your hair, the more light is absorbed, which means - the more effective the hair removal will be. In general, laser hair removal is known not to be as effective for those with white or grey hair as very little light is absorbed. All other treatments work in a similar way. The risks of using laser treatment involve temporary potential damage to the skin that surrounds hair follicles. Common symptoms include skin irritation such as redness, swelling or mild pain. Sometimes the laser can lighten or darken the skin and in very rare instances the laser can cause scarring or blistering. But you really have to be unlucky to experience either of these, and this is why it's also important to choose the laser treatment salon that you trust. If you are concerned about the possibility of skin damage or if you have ever had issues with scarring, tell the technicians so they can adjust the settings on the laser accordingly to minimize the risks.
What can laser treatment do?
Laser treatments are truly like magicians. With laser treatments you can remove hair semi-permanently (from anywhere and everywhere on the body), remove permanent tattoos, remove wrinkles, tighten the skin, rejuvenate the skin and act as a breast lift assistant.
How many sessions do I need to see a result?
Because hair is always growing in different stages and skin cells regenerate, multiple laser treatments are often needed. On average, it can take anywhere from four to eight treatments to fully see the result. Some lucky individuals see a result after one session! Although laser hair removal is touted as a permanent option, it is not guaranteed, and you may need occasional touch-up treatments. There are thousands of people all around the world who have made use of laser therapy for various treatments and have been left absolutely happy!
Is the treatment painful?
The degree of pain that you feel during a treatment will depend on the type of treatment you have chosen and the amount of treatment you undergo. In many cases, the degree of pain that is felt is compared to a rubber band snapping against your skin. During laser treatment, a topical anesthesia is sometimes applied with sedation, especially when treating specific areas of the face. You will be awake yet relaxed, feeling minimal discomfort. Other laser skin procedures can be pain-free for some patients, while others experience varying degrees of light discomfort. Much of this depends on the sensitivity of your skin itself.
How often can I have laser treatment sessions?
Traditionally, having your treatments 4-6 weeks apart is ideal - this gives the treatment a higher chance of reaching all of the skin cells / hair follicles.
Is laser treatment permanent?
Our machine removes hair permanently. This means that you might have to return for touch up's every 6-8 months (depending on your hair growth, your hair might not even grow back at all). Our bodies are not like machines, they are so delicate - therefore there is no rule-book to how your hair follicles will regenerate (if they even will at all).
