How does laser hair removal work?

Laser hair removal treatment works by focusing laser light at the base of hair follicles, causing them to cease growth. The laser is attracted to dark pigment in hair (melanin). Using melanin as a conductor, laser energy travels down to the root of the hair follicle where it disperses as thermal energy. This damages the base of the hair follicle rendering it unable to produce hair as quickly. Growth rate will decrease with further treatments.


Does laser hair removal work on all hair?

Laser hair removal works on both facial and body hair, including large areas like the legs & back. The laser targets the dark pigment present in some hairs but is not so effective on blonde, white or grey hair.


Is laser hair removal permanent?

On average 80-95% of lasered hair is permanently gone after a recommended course of treatments, whereas when you wax, pluck or shave, the hair always grows back. With laser hair removal you need never wax or shave again.


Does laser hair removal work for men?

Because laser hair removal is safe, quick & comfortable, it’s ideal for use on large areas of the body, making it particularly suitable men seeking to remove chest, shoulder & back hair.


How to prepare for laser removal?

You should limit plucking or waxing for two weeks before a Laser Hair Removal treatment. That is because the laser targets the hairs' roots, which are removed by these treatments.


Also limit sun exposure for two weeks before and after your treatment. Tanned skin makes laser hair removal less effective and increases the risk of complications.


Is a consultation necessary for Laser Hair Removal?

Laser Hair Removal is a medical grade treatment that requires training to perform and carries potential risks.


Your specialist will undertake a complete consultation at a time that is convenient to you. They will assess your skin type and hair type, as well as your medical background to ensure the most successful outcomes.


Your Specialist will also explain the risks and benefits of laser hair removal. If you are unsure of anything, please ask. It is important all your concerns are answered.
