Q: Is laser hair removal permanent?
A: Laser hair removal is a permanent hair reduction method. We have to consider different factors like hormonal imbalances and medications which may affect hair growth so every person may need a slightly different number of sessions and level of maintenance however once a hair has been successfully destroyed it will no longer grow.
Q: How long does laser hair removal last?
A:  Results vary from person to person therefore some people may need ongoing treatments if there are hormonal imbalances but generally after a course of 6-10 treatments has been completed often maintenance sessions are needed 1-2 times a year.
Q: What's the best way to get rid of unwanted hair?
A:  Laser hair removal is the most effective method of removing hair with the quickest and safest results. There are many other methods of non-permanent removal such as epilating and waxing which can often cause unwanted side effects such as ingrown hairs.
Q: Is laser hair removal painful?
A: Often it is described as being easier than other methods like waxing and threading however depending on the area it can be slightly uncomfortable but we have different types of cooling methods which make it more comfortable for you, for example we use cool air and cool chill tip on the lasers to cool the skin. Treatments are also very quick with the average treatment of an underarm being 1-2 minutes.
Q: What are the side effects of laser hair removal?
A: You may experience some reddening of the skin around where the hair used to be, which could last from a few minutes to 24 or 48 hours. For two days after each treatment, avoid exposure to the sun and don’t use the gym, saunas, steam rooms or have any hot baths or showers. Also be aware of perfumed lotions and follow the aftercare the will be advised in your consultation. We also recommend that you don’t have any treatment whilst you have an active tan as this can lead to unwanted side effects. We are always safe within the treatments that we perform and will be able to advise you on the best time intervals after and before any sun exposure.
Q: How does electrolysis work?
A: Electrolysis is a method of removing individual hairs from the face or body. Today's medical electrolysis devices destroy the growth centre of the hair with a heat energy using a very fine probe (the size of a hair follicle) which is inserted into the hair, the hair is then removed with tweezers. As each hair is treated individually it is best for small areas of hair removal and not large areas such as legs. Electrolysis can be performed on hairs that may not respond to laser treatment such as white, grey and blonde hairs.
Q: How much does laser hair removal cost?
A: The price varies due to the size of area being treated however at destination skin one session starts from £20.00 per session.
Q: How many laser hair removal treatments are needed?
A: The average number of sessions you will require is around 6-10 treatments every 4-8 weeks followed by possible maintenance. Hair growth will gradually reduce throughout a course of treatments.
Q: How does laser hair removal work?
A: A concentrated beam of light is aimed at the hair. The light is absorbed by the colour within the hair and the energy is changed to a heat, which damages the follicle enough to prevent the hair from growing. Lasers can remove hair from almost anywhere on the body and face leaving you with silky smooth hair free skin.
