FAQs

  • How does the treatment process work?
    Melanin, the dark pigment that surrounds the hair follicle, selectively absorbs specific wavelengths of laser light, disabling the follicle at the root and causing the hair to fall out permanently. Our laser systems give high energy while utilising the ideal wavelength to produce the best outcomes.
  • Can you go in the sun or on sun-beds after laser hair removal treatment?
    We can treat tanned skin as long as the tan is not present in the skin, so we advise avoiding the sun for at least 5 days prior to and 5 days following your treatment. While receiving laser treatment, we always advise applying a high-factor sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher. No fake tan can be present at all on the skin for 5 days before treatment.
  • Can you have laser hair removal whilst pregnant?
    No, you cannot have the procedure while pregnant because it involves hormones. You must wait at least three months after giving birth to give your hormones time to stabilise. You also cannot receive the treatment if you are breastfeeding a baby.
  • What is the difference between IPL and Laser?
    IPL uses a broad spectrum of high intensity light that is emitted at multiple wavelengths, which is the primary distinction between the two procedures. Laser Hair removal releases a  single focused and exact wavelength that is optimised for maximum follicle absorption.
  • Does the laser treatment work on lighter or red hairs?
    Red, white, and grey hairs won't respond to the laser treatment since they lack melanin, as is the case with any laser technologies. We are always up forward and honest about the expectations of our clients. Some people with lighter hair do get benefits, although it sometimes takes longer.
  • How many sessions will I need?
    We advise that the majority of people will require an average of 6–8 treatments spaced out over 4–8 weeks (area dependent) in order to kill the hair follicles that lie beneath the skin and stop further development. If any future hormonal changes lead to further growth, some people will need more sessions. To keep stray hairs at bay, yearly top ups may also be necessary.
  • How long do I leave in between treatments?
    Depending on the area and how many treatments you have received, you can wait 4–8 weeks between appointments. Prior to beginning any treatments, our therapists will develop a customised treatment plan for you during your consultation.
  • Does it hurt?
    The skin surface is maintained at a constant five degrees by our lasers' integrated, patented "crystal freeze" technology, preserving the skin and assuring a very comfortable procedure. Throughout the procedure, it is usual to get a warm prickling sensation to indicate that the treatment is effective, but you shouldn't experience any severe pain. We make sure that all of our patients are at ease during the sessions.
  • Will laser hair removal permanently remove my hair?
    After you have your first laser hair removal treatment, you will see a reduced number of hairs immediately. Hair growth may increase in the treated area from 2 to 8 weeks after since not all hair follicles respond equally to the treatment. It usually takes 3 to 8 sessions to achieve permanent hair loss. You may also need touch-up sessions about once a year.
  • Does the laser treatment work on darker skin types?
    Our lasers feature two working modes, high energy fluencies, and stacked pulse technology, so they will function safely on all skin and hair types. For the best outcomes, we will always modify settings in your treatment plan.
