    Our Guide To Laser Hair Removal

What Is Laser Hair Removal?

In a nutshell… The laser beam passes through the skin to an individual hair follicle. The intense heat of the laser damages the hair follicle which stops future hair growth. The laser targets the colour in the hair called pigment, so the darker hair (pigment) the easier it is for the laser to hit the follicle.
The laser targets hair that's within its active growth stage. Hair that's not in the anagen cycle cannot be targeted by lasers which is why you need a course of treatments for effective results.

How many treatments do I need to have?

Generally between 6 – 12 treatments in total with a treatment every 4 weeks for facial hair & every 6-8 weeks for body hair. Your practitioner will be able to recommend the exact number of treatments. The hair follicles that absorb the laser will never grow back, however some follicles will go dormant and could reactivate with hormonal changes as we age. If you do have regrowth this will be dramatically (but these hairs will be lighter and finer).

Why do I need so many treatments?

Your first treatments will target the hairs which regularly grow, and then the remaining treatments will target (and most importantly) destroy any of the potential hair follicles. This will be towards the end of your course and give you the best results.

For best results, you will need between 6 - 8 treatments to effectively target all hair follicles

How do you remove facial hair?

The most common methods of hair removal such as threading, waxing and bleaching can be harsh on the face and increase skin sensitivity and irritation. Fortunately facial laser hair removal is a safe treatment which can effectively reduce hair on the face, hairline & neck area. For the face, laser hair removal works in exactly the same way as any other area of your body, but is most often on lower heat setting due to the sensitivity of the area. The laser with target the dark pigment of hair right at the root with the laser beam and destroying it once it makes contact. Once damaged, the follicle starts to slow regrowth, which after a course of treatment will lead you to be hair free. DestinationSkin have invested in gold standard Cynosure Elite+ laser machines, which give faster treatments and safe for all skin types.

What results will I get?

Laser & IPL hair removal will remove 75-80% of hair which is honestly a vast improvement leaving people extremely pleased with their results. You may have to shave a few patches every several weeks but there will be a significant reduction….. LIFE CHANGING STUFF.

Are there any areas that cannot be treated?

Mostly all areas of the body can be treated, however if there is an area your want to be treated then we can advise… Don’t be embarrassed our practitioners are extremely professional and consultations are strictly confidential. We are not able to treat inside the nose or ears which is often required by our male customers.

Can you treat all skin tones and hair types ?

Yes, we proudly (and like to boast) can treat all skin types with our advanced Laser & IPL machines. It is most effective on dark hair as there is a greater pigment difference however your practitioner will be able to advise. We are unable to treat fine light hair as the laser wont be able to detect the dark pigment, but again our practitioner will be able to advise.

What hair removal can I use in-between treatments?

Following your treatment it will take about 2 weeks for the hairs to shed naturally from the skin. You can shave 2 days after your treatment, but try not shave as regularly in between treatments so that the hairs can fall naturally from the skin. Throughout the course do not wax, thread, tweeze, sugar or pluck any hairs as this removes the hair from the follicle we want to target.
