Hair Removal

The process of laser hair removal is simple and effective

Removal of unwanted hair

Laser hair removal is a procedure which uses an intense beam of light to medically remove unwanted hair growing in different areas of the body. It is ideal for people of dark or light skin complexions looking to inhibit hair growth. Several treatments may be required to ensure you enjoy long-lasting results where hair growth is prohibited long term. Maintenance sessions should be scheduled to ensure true permanence.

What preparation should be undertaken?

The procedure must be performed by a professionally trained technician or dermatologist. Always ensure the clinic has a good reputation and check the credentials of the technician or dermatologist, as well as reading any online reviews available.

It is advisable you limit electrolysis, waxing and plucking for at least six weeks before the procedure. This precaution will keep the hair follicle intact for the laser to remove it permanently. It is also advisable that you avoid direct sun exposure for six weeks prior and after the treatment.

What happens in the appointment?

Before the commencement of the procedure, the chosen hair area will be trimmed to a few millimetres and the laser equipment tailored the thickness, colour and location of the hair being removed. The outer layer of your skin will be protected by cold gel and afterwards anti-inflammatory lotion can help minimise any discomfort. The next appointment should be scheduled after four or six weeks, and ongoing maintenance will be advised for long-term effects.

Which lasers are used?
