What is laser hair removal?
If you’re tired of tweezing, and waxing to remove unwanted hair, laser hair removal is the best option for you.
Laser hair reduction involves three steps, cleaning, shaving and scanning the areas to be treated. Once the area is decided, highly intense laser rays are targeted into the hair follicles. Pigments in the hair follicles absorb the laser rays which leads to death of their death.
Is laser hair removal effective?
Laser hair removal is permanent and hair killed during the session won’t grow back. Keep in mind that as long as you live, you will produce new hair. We did not have much hair when we were babies but as we grew we produced more hair. This process will continue despite hair removal. The growth of new hair is why you require clean up sessions every year.
How long will the treatment take?
The treatment could take up to an hour depending on the density of the hair. For example, upper lip or chin hair can be removed faster than back.
Are there any side effects?
Side effects are usually minimal. Skin will appear red but, will subside within 24 hours.
How many sessions will I need?
Typically you will require 3 or more sessions with a gap of 8-12 weeks between each session. A minimum of 50% of hair growth will be reduced in the first session.
Is it painful?
Compared to other hair removal procedures like waxing, tweezing or electrolysis, laser treatment is painless and permanent. However, you will feel slight discomfort during the procedure like mild pinching.
